Corporate caterer Artizian specialises in sourcing, cooking and serving the best fresh food to the workplace. Now, as part of its professed passion for great service, the boutique catering specialist has adopted an integrated order-ahead solution, powered by Preoday, to provide hungry office workers with great food on-demand.
The company, which runs in-house office cafes, restaurants and coffee bars for UK businesses, will introduce a new service which at a multinational company in the City of London to download a dedicated app and pre-order from the company coffee cart or cafe.
Roy McGranaghan, Operations and Business Support Manager, Artizian, comments: “We are excited that staff can now click to collect their coffees or meals, negating the need to queue, or waste time while food is prepared. We work with some of the UK’s biggest businesses and there’s no doubt that their staff would appreciate and benefit from a service like this on-site. After all, less time wasted leads to greater satisfaction and productivity for their employees.”
Nick Hucker, CEO of Preoday, adds: “The corporate catering environment is one that is less commonly discussed in reference to pre-ordering, and yet it’s a market where the benefits are powerful and measurable. We are thrilled that Artizian has chosen to work with Preoday and look forward to helping make food and coffee ordering faster and more convenient for office workers.”
It’s not as catchy as: ‘When is a door not a door?’ (answer, when it’s a jar) but it speaks to the idea that in-car collection, and the technologies that support it, are flexible enough to bend to the needs of a business and its guests.
Delivery can be daunting to the uninitiated, and it might be tempting to sign up with a third-party ordering aggregator that offers the service, such as UberEats, but other options could suit your business and brand better. Here we present three different ‘levels’ of delivery, starting with the most basic – and cheapest method: doing it yourself.
