Sodexo has acquired restaurant aggregator, Foodee Inc., and said it will expand the foodservice technology platform for businesses with flexible and changing workforces.
The Foodie platform, now a part of Sodexo's corporate services segment, features 800-plus local restaurants in 14 cities across the U.S. and Canada. It's expected to expand to include offerings in New York City, Los Angeles, Dallas, and Montreal within the next year.
Starting at $6.99 a month, companies can invite employees to the platform to choose their meals in advance or same day and have it delivered to a central location. Each meal is delivered individually wrapped and labeled and employees can store their dietary restrictions, allergies, and food preferences to filter options quickly and make future ordering easier. The menu offer is varied, from healthy dishes to comfort foods.
In addition to partnering with Sodexo-managed clients in corporate services, Foodee’s current and future self-operated restaurant partners can leverage Sodexo’s subsidiary brand for group purchasing. Entegra Procurement Services provides direct cost savings to clients on food, products, and services as well as additional earned rebates, market insights and advisory services.
Since launching in 2012, Foodee reportedly has served more than 10 million meals.
