No matter if you have a team of 5 or 500 EAT Club can accommodate the startups and enterprise level companies alike. The company redefining workplace lunch with personalized meals and snacks that are always on time, launches today in L.A. Since its inception in 2010, EAT Club has scaled its service in the Bay Area, delivering more than three million meals to allow thousands of companies like Netflix, Tesla and Cisco to find their workplace zen.
Here’s how EAT Club works:
- Companies select the program that works for them. Office managers pick the exact number of lunches and/or snacks, delivery timing and more to ensure their office always receives the perfect lunch.
- Employees hand-pick exactly the meal they want from top local restaurants, as well as EAT Club’s own professional kitchens, using the company’s easy online or mobile ordering system.
- Personalized food options arrive for employees, with proven on-time deliveries more than 99 percent of the time.
EAT Club has already gained mass popularity in San Francisco through offerings from top Bay Area restaurants such as Dosa, voted 7×7’s Best Indian Food, the famed Bar Tartine and popular food truck Curry Up Now. Now, L.A. companies have the chance to experience this innovative e-commerce food service by experiencing personalized food options at scale.
Offering a curated, ever-changing menu, EAT Club leverages professional chefs and food designers, local restaurants and a massive logistics platform to ensure timely, consistent deliveries. The service makes it easy for office managers to order personalized lunches for offices of any size. As part of its L.A. offerings, EAT Club also delivers lunch options from a variety of popular restaurants such as Bay Cities Italian Deli & Bakery, home to one of the “10 Best Sandwiches in Los Angeles” Gracias Madre, one of LA’s 8 Best Vegan Restaurants That Would Make Bourdain Eat His Words, Cafe Gratitude, Fundamental LA and Fat Sal’s.
“Food is an integral part of a happy, productive workplace. Having timely and consistent meals delivered right to the office frees employees up to be more productive and think big, rather than wasting time traversing the city in the search of the perfect chicken burrito,” said Larry Sales, EAT Club’s new general manager of L.A. “Not every company has Google’s budget to spend on an endless lunch, and we think that’s okay. We’re proud of creating the ability for thousands of companies that previously couldn’t offer food to do so at scale, and I look forward to bringing this experience to L.A. – so that the city’s most delicious, critically-acclaimed restaurants are accessible to companies with the push of a button.”
Sales is a seasoned general manager with experience scaling online commerce and fostering partnerships with top food and culinary brands including Betty Crocker, Pillsbury, Starbucks, Food Network, Kraft, Calphalon, and Epicurious in his most recent role as Vice President & General Merchandise Manager at Cooking.com (now part of TCC Cooking Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Target Corporation). A veteran of the industry, Sales is passionate about food and excited to build lunch programs for EAT Club that showcase the amazing diversity L.A. has to offer. Sales earned his MBA from Stanford University and his undergraduate degree in Finance from San Diego State University.
“These days, an awesome office culture is crucial to attracting and retaining great talent,” said Erika Kavanagh, office and culture manager at Dog Vacay, an early L.A. adopter of EAT Club. “We pride ourselves on going the extra mile to foster a fun and pleasant work environment for our employees, and EAT Club’s diverse assortment of daily food options helps us accomplish that. It frees us up to think big and focus on our dog and human customers, instead of spending time administering an office lunch program.”
