We Deliver Local Food. We Fuel Company Culture.
Until recently, employees at companies across North America were reduced to eating bag lunches alone at their desks and—on special occasions—sharing wasteful, tasteless catered meals. Meanwhile, local owner-operated restaurants with delicious homemade meals had to close their doors for lack of customers.
And then in 2011 Foodee was born. Founders Jon Cartwright and Ryan Spong aimed to liberate corporate office culture from sad desk lunches and bad catering once and for all. This dream became a reality in 2013 when Ryan, now a reformed investment banker and successful restauranteur, became CEO.
Here at Foodee, we know that local owner-operated restaurants take great pride serving fantastic food. Many of them are institutions in their local communities. They support local farmers and growing families, serve high-quality food and have a smaller footprint on the world (at least compared to chain restaurants).
We also get company culture. We understand how challenging—and time consuming—it can be to establish a community of happy, healthy and engaged employees. That’s why we work hard to build a relationship with every client and become a part of their community. Knowing just what an office manager, coordinator, or executive assistant needs (and what their company wants) allows us to deliver by bringing people together over a shared meal.
Foodee connects these two worlds and makes them stronger and better together. Corporate meals are now local, delicious, easy to order and delivered on time (and without stress). High-quality local restaurants stay open—and thrive—because we help simplify operations, increase sales and unify brand experiences. Our delivery service also prioritizes environmentally-friendly packaging (compostable wherever possible) and eco-friendly delivery methods, such as grouping orders together.
Foodee has delivered over 2,000,000 office meals in 10 cities across North America—and is continuing to grow. Despite our progress, our mission has stayed the same since our grassroots beginnings: we deliver food that makes a difference.
