Why have food at work?

Recruiting and retention  

The bar has been raised. Job candidates expect good food at work, now more than ever. When looking at the lists of the best places to work, food programs always show up. When the food is especially good, employees stick around and spread the word outside the organization.  

Engagement  

When companies promote a food program, teams get in the habit of eating together rather than venturing out solo. They tend to loosen up and get to know one another. Mealtimes become a ritual that strengthen the company's culture every single day. Few if any engagement opportunities repeat as frequently.  

Productivity  

An onsite meal food solution lets people make the most of their time. Countless hours are saved when employees don't have to go through the ordeal of leaving the office, getting into their cars, and finding a restaurant. Everyone loves getting that time back.  

Health and wellness  

Health and wellness has become a mainstream priority in today's culture. People want healthy options; the workplace is no exception. By providing access to high quality, fresh meals, your company meets that growing demand. Addressing health and wellness also leads to decreased insurance costs and fewer sick days.

Why have Cater Stars at work?

Cater Stars is in the business of making lunch at work something that employees can look forward to every day. What makes us stand out the most? Restaurants. They are the heroes of our business model. Rather than cook our own food, our job is to handle all the moving pieces that go into bringing different restaurants to your workplace; fresh and on time every day. 

Cost  

Most food programs are expensive. Cater Stars model is uniquely low cost for employers, since our core business model is centered around a revenue share with our restaurant partners. This puts companies in the position to provide an affordable perk for their employees. For companies that want to subsidize meals for their employees, our model allows for employers to pay for part of or all of the meal.

Customer service  

Customer service gives us a competitive edge and it keeps our clients around. At Cater Stars we hire creative problem solvers, not robots. They take ownership and judge their own success on client feedback and client retention.

Data driven solution  

Through cutting edge technology, Cater Stars learns from millions of data points every day. The data helps us make decisions that save money for our clients, keep your employees happy, reduce food waste, and help restaurants stay profitable.

Restaurant partners

At Cater Stars, we scour the streets for the best food trucks, trendy restaurants and hidden-gem independents. Making the connection between talented restaurateurs and people who appreciate their food is our passion. We partner with local favourites to ensure your colleagues love their lunch every day.



We love food; here's why:

Food can be the special reward that gets you through a busy week, nourishment for an individual lifestyle, something comforting that evokes childhood memories, or an opportunity to travel somewhere else in the world with your tastebuds. Meals mean different things to different people at different times and, to be sure, our tastes are deeply personal. But there's a common thread for all of us — really good food makes us happy.  

At Cater Stars, we scour the streets for the best street food vendors, trendy restaurants, hidden independant gems, popular favorites, and dedicated caterers. Making the connection between them and people who appreciate their food is our passion.

We live by four guiding beliefs whenever we think about good food

Variety

Lets us look forward to something different. For a lot of us, it's what keeps lunch exciting.

Quality

Comes from awesome ingredients and care in preparation. It delights taste buds and makes people feel good.

Authenticity

Comes from chefs who create dishes influenced by their own personal stories and experiences.

Healthy

Options give us the fuel we need to accomplish the lifestyle goals we care about. It should be within reach when you want it, even when you're at work.
