We believe the best dining experience is one that energizes your workplace and employees, creating a culture of wellness that promotes engagement and attracts exceptional talent. That’s why we go above and beyond to develop a deeper understanding of employee dining habits and preferences.
By analyzing a combination of generational insights, the latest workplace and consumer dining and design trends, as well as employee surveys, we create unique dining experiences that meet the needs of your talent, office culture and business goals. Our highly dedicated staff then takes these insights and uses them to design fresh, ethnic menus and exciting dining concepts that will engage your workforce and improve performance. The result is an experience that is meaningful, authentic, sustainable and completely tailored to your workplace.
As an example, many of our partners have employees who are looking for food and beverage options during nontraditional hours. Recognizing that insight, we created a mini-market with a self-checkout, open 24/7. At another company, we noticed that peak dining hours were becoming too crowded, so we added mobile ordering and a takeout window to ease the rush.
We’re able to continually collect data and connect with employees via several different feedback and measurement programs. Through our Voice of the Consumer feedback tool, we can accurately measure your employees’ satisfaction and respond to their needs in real time. Using that same data, our expert team looks for growing trends and proactively innovates new programs and practices to help make our business dining services even better.
We understand that companies have their own culture, taste, personality and goals. We also understand that an engaging workplace-dining environment can help boost employee pride and productivity while increasing revenue. We take all this into consideration with every concept because your dining experience should be a reflection of your exceptional company and the employees who make it great.

Healthy For Life™, is our comprehensive, easy-to-understand health and wellness program that helps support healthy lifestyles on multiple levels. Working directly with your on-site facility, we provide employees with better food choices and readily accessible nutrition information to ensure they are maintaining healthier, stronger lifestyles at work and at home.
We enable a healthy culture by providing delicious food with fresh, local and seasonal ingredients. We then make this known to your employees through communication on-site, and through our web and mobile platforms.
Not only that, but we also promote a healthy culture with education. Our teams of chefs, dietitians and support staff are trained to know everything about our food. By purchasing top-quality ingredients, following healthy recipes, offering nutritional information, and even suggesting meals to our guests, we task ourselves to be perennial educators.
Recognizing that healthy lifestyles are best sustained in a supportive, social environment, we extend our advocacy through menu promotions, healthy home recipes, station-specific tips for healthy eating, and retail programs.
Additionally, we help your employees cultivate a healthy culture through our partnership with Cooking Light, the long-established health, nutrition, and fitness experts. Together, we inspire employees to eat smart, be fit, and live well in every aspect of their lives.
The healthy choices and programs we provide are not only nutritious and great-tasting, they energize your workforce and support retention by enabling, educating, encouraging, and engaging your employees.
Our commitment to inspire keeps your employees engaged and satisfied. Rooted in the approach that everyone eats differently and a one-size-fits-all cafe doesn’t apply, our tailored solutions are based specifically on your employees – from where they live to what gets them motivated. We work every day to deliver innovative dining experiences that incorporate dishes with fresh, local ingredients and delicious menus filled with authentic, ethnic recipes.
Our philosophy is that the best meals start with the freshest ingredients. Our team goes above and beyond to purchase the highest-quality ingredients for each recipe we prepare. We incorporate ingredients that are better for you into each dish. Using leaner proteins, fresh herbs to reduce sodium, and olive oils and purees that replace bad fats, we’re able to create meals that are both healthy and great-tasting.
We locally source seasonal fruits and vegetables whenever possible to ensure that these ingredients are at the peak of freshness when they go into our dishes.
Modern workspaces are increasingly defined by the employees who inhabit them. Today, the employees driving that change are millennials who desire open, flexible, comfortable and tech-savvy spaces in which to eat, work and socialize.
Our innovative approach to dining allows us to break traditional molds and create dining solutions that fit the needs of your changing workplace demographics. Our team puts considerable research into current and evolving workplace trends, so that we can build exciting dining environments that meet the needs of today, while keeping the future in mind.
We can design hybrid and hangout spaces that serve as both dining areas and places to work and socialize. We incorporate food and beverage innovations to create creativity-charged environments.
