The office hours were calling as I decided to step out for a break. Someone’s heading back to their desks. “What’s for lunch?” I ask him. “Oh it’s Biryani, but I really recommend the same Dal Rice” he replied and faces sunk across the Marketing bay. Sounds like an everyday story doesn’t it?
Well, not anymore.
After starting out with one office caterer at work, to two different caterers every week, we at Runnr decided to never step into the office canteen again and find our happiness levels be at the mercy of a pre-decided menu card. More at a personal level, we at Runnr have successfully launched the Runnr Meals programme for corporate offices.
Ordering in from your favourite restaurants every day for lunch is an expensive ordeal. The restaurants stepped in to help us here. We hand-picked a few popular restaurants in our locality and asked them to put their speciality dishes in one meal box which would be economical for people to order at work every day.
An interesting problem we faced was that of convenience. While the office canteen opened exactly at lunch hour, meals had to be ordered exactly 45 minutes before you wanted it to appear. Sadly, that’s not how hunger worked. So, Runnr meals comes with a premium feature that allows you to pre-order the meal box you’d like for lunch and it reaches your office from 1- 1:30 p.m. You can order whenever you feel like. What’s more? For all orders placed before 12:30 pm, your meal boxes are free of any delivery charges. Now you can work and not think about when your lunch will reach you. Also, it becomes one of those perks only you get for working in a corporate office.
The most interesting thing about the Runnr Meals programme is that you don’t need to order in everyday. You get your meal boxes only when you want to eat lunch at work. So, if you’re stepping out for a corporate lunch meeting, you can do so without dealing with any food wastage.
Now lunch hour is very different in our office. Everyone grabs a bean bag and eats together. We share our meal boxes with each other and lunch is overall a very happy experience as everyone indulges in a cuisine of their choice, every single day.
We’ve changed the way lunch hour looks like in our work place and we’re looking forward to changing yours, one plate at a time. If you want Runnr Meals in your office, fill this form!
