Apple Spice opened their first box lunch delivery and catering company in 1988. Founders Randy Clegg and Wayne Curtis rented a storefront from 88 year old Fritz Haertel. Known as the legendary “Rye King” of Salt Lake City, Fritz’s age had required him to downsize his bakery. During those early days, Fritz would hang around the ovens and mixing bowls, offering suggestions on the art of baking bread and imparting other culinary wisdom. In addition to baking tips, Fritz taught the value of hard work, honesty, and giving back to your community.

THE RIGHT Ingredients

During the last 30 years, Apple Spice has grown from its original location to a nationwide company of nearly 50 stores. Specializing in business and corporate lunches, we’ve learned what it takes to make your event a success. We have also learned that equally important to serving delicious food is providing professional and dependable customer service, every single time.

OUR Food

Unlike many national brands, who use par-baked bread full of added preservatives, our bread is made from scratch daily. The smell of hot dough baking in the oven permeates our kitchens each morning as our bakers use only the finest ingredients. It’s no wonder our bread has become so popular with customers all across America.

DON'T FORGET The Cookie!

Our commitment to dessert is unwavering! Inside every box lunch you’ll find a delicious wrap or sandwich made with premium meats and cheeses on our famous 13-grain, sourdough, or honeywheat bread. Packaged neatly to its side is a side dish of your choice, a mint and a freshly baked cookie to complete the meal. We don’t judge if you eat the cookie first!
