Office takeaway services VS. delivered catering

Choosing how to feed your teams in the office is tricky, with so many options available. Maybe we’re biased, but we believe delivered catering with meals from a central production kitchen is a choice well worth considering. Not only does it offer you greater flexibility, but it also provides your office canteen with high-quality meals to energise your teams.

Without further ado, here are six reasons why we say DITCH your office takeaway orders and OPT for delivered catering instead:


1. Delivered catering for shared moments

People who order delivered meals from different restaurants are less inclined to share lunch breaks. But when teams share a buffet service, the moment encourages them to sit around a table together. Stronger social bonds are formed when employees eat together, resulting in a more resilient company culture.


2. Less polluting vehicles out on the road

Air pollution is a grave issue in most major cities, especially London. So why choose a foodservice system that requires multiple motorcycle deliveries to your site, when you can choose delivered catering that only requires one van drop-off a day?


3. No more lunch-skipping or lonesome ‘Al Desko’ meals

We feel that office catering will always trump food vouchers. Why? Because a ready-for-service buffet of enticing food, served with proper plates and cutlery, encourages teams not to ‘grab and go’ – but to sit, eat and enjoy.


4. Adding a personal touch to your on-site foodservice

Central London is crammed with options for ordering tasty delivered lunches. However, a big advantage of delivered office catering is that it boosts your unique office culture – from adapting menus to running special events. Not forgetting, our catering managers and supervisors will add a more personal touch to your on-site foodservice.


5. Make life easy for workplace managers

Office caterers can take care of all things food, drink and social – giving facilities managers an easier day. Tending to employees’ special dietary needs? No problem! Stocking snacks and coffee? We can do that too! A seasonal feast? Let’s do it!


6. Last but not least, there’s NO single-use packaging

Feed your teams without filling up the landfills (and oceans) with more needless single-use packaging by choosing our delivered-in buffets that are delivered and served in proper ceramic dishes. Plus, there’s nothing like a properly served meal on a plate with a knife and fork, a.k.a not eating from tin foil wrap or a box.
