We love this little infographic (who doesn’t love an infographic after all?) from entrepreneur.com – all about why it makes great sense to serve great food at work. Hear, hear – we couldn’t have said (or drawn) it better ourselves!
We couldn’t be more excited to be making our flexible office catering solution even more flexible than Jean Claude Van Damme riding a couple of trucks, than by making it available at the click of a mouse (if you have no idea what we’re talking about – check out this ludicrous stunt!).
No more emailing or calling back and forth to check prices and availability, place bookings, confirm the number of veggies etc etc…..thanks to our brand spanking new online ordering platform, you can now feed your entire office as often as you like by simply ordering online.
Whether it’s a daily breakfast and lunch for the entire office, a weekly team lunch or a monthly team breakfast, our new Catering on Demand service is the simplest way to delight your colleagues with an awesome meal.
Feeding the entire office couldn’t be simpler – just web on, check out our daily changing menus, pick a date, pick a time, pick a menu, tell us how many people you’re feeding and we’ll do the rest.
Out chefs will lovingly prepare your food in our central London kitchens. Our delivery team will carefully weave through the London traffic to bring your ready to serve meal to your offices. Our front of house team will set it all up and clear it all away. Which means all you need to do is sit back and enjoy the food and praise for being a complete rock star by arranging such a cracking feast for your colleagues.
And what’s more, we’re offering 20% OFF all orders placed in September if you use the voucher code “lovegrazing”. What better reason could there be to give it a go this month and become your office rock star!?
Here at Grazing, we love food. We don’t just like it a little bit, we freaking love it and the event better is that the one thing we love more than food itself is sharing it with others.
A quick search with the help of Uncle Google reveals a mountain of articles, blogs and posts on all of the science behind why and how food makes people happy – something to do with some chemicals in the brain apparently, but that’s not the important thing here. Science aside, there’s a load of different reasons why food can make us happy…..we usually share it with people we like, we often have it as part of a celebration AND it tastes good (NOTE – if it doesn’t…we strongly suggest you stop eating it and go find some that does!). Just as important, of course, it also gives us energy and with energy, anything’s possible.
So if we’re happy, satiated and full of enough energy to do anything, there’s a very good chance we’re going to be at the top of our game at work. Which is why the most awesome businesses in the world are those that make sure their teams are always well fed.
Here at Grazing global HQ in Bermondsey, we’re not only passionate about great food, we’re also passionate about finding ways for great teams to share great food at work. We truly believe that sharing a great meal at work makes for awesomely productive, collaborative and creative teams and companies.
Most of us have likely had a job or two where we didn’t feel valued, didn’t get to know or really gel with our colleagues and, frankly, didn’t really enjoy ourselves.
Some of us, however, are lucky enough to work for great companies, who show how much they value us by providing an office environment that’s a pleasure to come into every day, where they’ve thought about the things that really matter, like lockers and changing rooms so we can cycle to work, and delicious lunches so we can enjoy a great meal and relax with our colleagues for a while. And with those bods in white coats having proven that the food makes us happy, it seems a bit of a no brainer as to why great companies provide great food.
So next time you’re changing jobs, or trying to attract talent to join your company, don’t underestimate the emotive power of great food. Be sure to take a long hard look at the office lunch menu first.
