BOSTON--()--ezCater, the world’s largest online catering marketplace, today announced Relish by ezCatera new way to feed offices of any size, anywhere in the U.S.

Pre-COVID, companies provided food to employees and guests for meetings, events, or as a perk. Now, as workplaces reopen, employers need to create a culture of food safety to reduce risk, operate efficiently, and support employee health.

Relish gives employees safe, convenient access to their choice of meals from a rotating list of local restaurants. Individually packaged meals arrive in a single delivery at a designated place and time, so there is less traffic in and out of the office. Companies cover delivery costs and can choose to subsidize part or all of the meal cost.

Companies like edXJLL, and Progress already feed internal meetings, sales calls, and team lunches with ezCater. Now, Relish offers a way to provide daily employee meals too.

“Keeping employees safe is a key priority as we reopen our office,” said Alyssa Lahar, Chief Human Resources Officer at ZoomInfo, an ezCater customer. “With Relish’s delivery options, our employees can order and enjoy food from restaurants they love without leaving the building. It’s a convenient service that helps us provide both a safe and rewarding workplace experience for our employees.”

“Workplace priorities have shifted,” said Stefania Mallett, Co-founder and CEO at ezCater. “Providing food for work is now much more than a perk. We designed Relish because it's COVID-smart. It gives employees safe access to great food without leaving work to get it. Plus, Relish gives restaurants more of the high-value orders they love from ezCater.”

“We’re ready to feed corporate America once they return,” said Hadrien Delande, Chief Marketing Officer at B.GOOD, a fast casual restaurant chain. “And ezCater’s Relish service is a great way to do that.”
