Brancato’s Catering on Kansas City Live!


We are always looking for  ways to share our work with new audiences and were very excited about the opportunity to do so recently on Kansas City Live’s daily televised show. We were given the chance to join their cast and crew to showcase one of our popular menu items, the KC Classic. We were joined by  hosts, Joel Nichols and Michelle Davidson who assisted in showing their  viewers how we prepare the ingredients for this great sandwich.

Using this medium to spread our message was great because we got to not only share a delicious and popular recipe with a new audience, but the viewers also had the opportunity to watch us in action and learn new techniques to use in their own recipes.

We welcome you to try your hand at creating this delicious sandwich and hope you enjoy it as much as our clients do!
