What if happy hour with your team came to your office? What if you could plan ahead and order appetizers, snacks and treats from your favourite local restaurants and have them delivered right to your office at happy hour on Friday at 4 pm? Sure, going out for the odd happy hour with your team is great for a fun outing, but it’s not necessarily sustainable if you have a large team on a schedule and a packed restaurant at peak times. 

Although we specialize in daily and weekly office lunches, we understand how having happy hour with your team (or your entire company) can be for building company culture, boosting positivity, happiness and camaraderie. For those moments, we’re here for you. 

Here are some top ideas of what to order for happy hour with your team—and where to get it.
