How Automating Office Lunch Can Boost Productivity
Office lunch is a hot topic. It has the potential to be a delicious part of the workday, but it also has the potential to be a real headache for whoever is in charge of organizing it. People are particular about what they eat!
Deciding where to order from, hunting down individual orders, and tracking down late delivery people can be a tedious and unrewarding task. Fortunately, it’s no longer one that anyone has to do.
When admins organize office lunches, they have to go through a series of steps:
- Create a running list of restaurants and caterers.
- Identify a reliable, trustworthy, and experienced caterer or restaurant.
- Take individual and team orders and note food preferences.
- Decide whether to order individual boxed lunches or offer a buffet lunch where everyone makes their own plate.
- Call the caterer or restaurant to place the order.
- Wait for the orders to come in.
- If serving individual lunch boxes, segregate boxes and deliver to teams. If using office catering, set up the spread at the office cafeteria.
Automation can eliminate every single one of these steps for admins.

Good food excites employees. While perks won’t make or break a job for most people, those little things can help set the tone for either a really positive work environment or a dreary one.

Employees eat good food. By using automation to weed out venues with low ratings and bad reviews, Forkable ensures that it only works with top quality restaurants.
