Your guide to structuring the perfect daily corporate catering program

One of the first questions that organizers ask after deciding to incorporate a daily corporate catering program into their organization’s lunchtime routine is how it can be formatted.

Many of us will never have to rely on a non-profit organization to make ends meet or to help us find food and lodging. We hear about the charities that do this work, we might donate to them or even volunteer hours, but they largely exist on the periphery of our lives. For other Torontonians, […]

There is such a thing as a free lunch: Why the Fortune 500 use food services to engage their employees

We’ve all heard the anecdotes out of Silicon Valley—an uber-progressive tech start-up showers its employees with benefits from desk-side massages and unlimited vacation, to free gym memberships and complimentary concierge service to run errands for busy employees.
