Office food delivery
by Steve Oakey
The days of soggy sandwiches and last nights leftovers are coming to an end. Eating al-desko has recently become a lot more interesting.
Most people are often too busy for a proper lunch, but they’re now unwilling to compromise on a great food experience.
Food retailers are feeding this rise in expectation and bridging the gap between their outlets and desk-ridden office customers by delivering – and a whole new industry, language and identity is developing. London is now full of delivery advertising and cleverly branded delivery carts, bikes, trucks and buggies racing around.
Some food outlets do the delivering themselves and some use specialist delivery companies such as Henchman and Deliveroo – where you just type your postcode and a whole world of great food outlets pop up to choose from with a delivery time.
Check out ‘M&S Lunch to You’, ‘Subway Platters’ ‘Yo to go’,‘Itsu to you’ ‘Pret delivers’ to name a few. Food is usually delivered to your office free, and Apps / websites make it simple to choose, order and pay.
