About Simply Grand Cafe & Catering

Owner: Shaheen Kazemi

In 2000 Joe’s Express was launched to take advantage of the growing demand for delivery of box lunches to downtown Cincinnati Ohio and surrounding businesses. As a result Burrito Joe’s began offering the same quality, fresh ingredients at affordable prices in the way of sandwiches and salads to the business community. Later, Joe’s Express took on a new persona, that of Simply Grand Cafe & Catering.

The Simply Grand Cafe & Catering concept was developed and expanded to a whole new level. Not only would they provide some of the best sandwiches and salads in the Cincinnati area, but they began offering a complete menu featuring breakfast, hot lunch, reception and dinner selections. Over the past few years, we have become a prominent player as a full-service caterer (on or off-site) in the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky areas. We offer standard and customized menus for every occasion for groups from 10 to 500. For more information, please contact us at 513-381-6000.
