For more employee satisfaction and energy in the workplace

A key factor in meeting all of these employee needs is employee catering. The availability of fresh food in the company signals appreciation towards employees and contributes to employee loyalty. A high level of employee satisfaction leads to lower staff turnover and a better working atmosphere.

Foodji - Employee catering - Image - Happy employees
  • Employee catering promotes a balanced diet with a fresh and healthy range of food and thus the concentration, productivity and long-term health of employees. To this end, it is also a popular health management tool.
  • In-house catering helps increase employee satisfaction by providing a pleasant and social environment for employees to interact and relax. This also promotes exchange (in contrast to meal vouchers), which improves the WE feeling and working atmosphere and strengthens employee loyalty.
  • A cafeteria also offers a convenient lunch option, as employees do not have to leave their work environment to find a meal. This saves time and promotes efficient use of working time.

Foodji or frozen meals?What do you want for your business?

In today's business world, competition for talent is becoming more intense and companies are faced with the challenge of offering attractive employee benefits to attract and retain skilled workers. Employee catering through ready meals or a Foodji offers numerous advantages that can have a positive impact on the company, culture and well-being of employees. Not every company has the human resources and space to afford the equipment for a frozen meal and menu service .

That's why we would like to present Foodji as a cost-effective alternative that every company can afford with higher quality and that is open 24/7 without the need for staff. In-house catering helps to increase employee satisfaction as it offers employees a pleasant and social environment in which they can exchange ideas and relax.

Frequently asked questions

Frequently asked questions about Foodji

Why are menus with meal service not suitable for every company?

When it comes to frozen meals as employee catering, the question arises as to what extent they actually contribute to employee loyalty.

Compared to innovative catering approaches such as Foodji, traditional freezer menus do not seem to make the desired contribution to creating a strong employee community within the company.

These shortcomings could extend to various aspects, including dietary diversity, the promotion of healthy and fresh food and the motivation of employees to return to work from home. If the food at work is not right, employees prefer to cook to their taste at home.

How is the food from the Foodji different from frozen food?

The Foodji is filled with fresh food 2-3 times a week. We attach great importance to the freshness and quality of our ingredients and products and want all employees to have access to healthy food at work.

In addition to freshness, variety is important to us: we stock the Foodji with different main dishes from a wide range of cuisines: Italian, Greek, German, Asian and many more. We attach great importance to ensuring that vegetarians and vegans also find the right dish for them. Do you already know our nine dean&david salads? They're amazing!
We offer a large selection of snacks such as wraps and sandwiches to satisfy small appetites.

By the way: unlike the menu service, you can reserve your favorite dish 6 hours in advance at Foodji.

Can Foodji be used as a supplement to the canteen?

Many larger employers use Foodji to supplement their existing catering. Especially for companies with extended break times (e.g. night shift), this is a decisive advantage to cover the demand beyond the lunch break. With Foodji, opening hours can be extended in an uncomplicated way at moderate costs. This applies above all to producton and logistics companies or hospitals. But also offices with flexible working models also benefit. Branch offices or companies with a large campus are also popular use cases for a foodji as a canteen supplement. This way, all employees - regardless of location/campus - can be reached with the benefit of community catering.

How often do meals change at Foodji?

The foodji is freshly filled several times a week on specified days. The menu changes with each filling. The purpose of this is to ensure that the menu is tailored to your team. If your team often orders salads, meat or vegetarian meals, more salads, meat dishes or vegetarian meals will be offered. The food at Foodji tastes as fresh as you know it from a usual company restaurant. Due to the variety, it is possible to order a different main dish at Foodji every day for up to eight weeks. For every taste there is a varied, delicious lunch at the canteen or breakfast. What is your favorite canteen food?

What purpose do extended opening hours serve?

Not every employee has the opportunity to take part in the classic Monday to Friday lunch. Especially people who work in shifts or on weekends do not have access to it. A cafeteria that is only open for lunch from Monday to Friday does not reach them. With a cafeteria that is open around the clock or at least has extended opening hours, everyone can be catered for. The purpose: this communicates appreciation and promotes health and satisfaction. After all, especially on the night shift, it's important for the body to eat healthy and prevent cravings. This can be promoted by the employer through a balanced menu and varied cuisine.

Is there an option for companies to offer a meal subsidy at Foodji?

Yes, as with a traditional canteen, the employer can subsidize the daily meal (main courses, breakfast until 11 a.m., snacks, drinks) at Foodji tax-free. Thanks to the intelligent system of the Foodji system makes it easy to ensure that all tax conditions, such as the non-cash benefit value, are met. It may also be the case that external persons at your location have access to the Foodji (e.g. visitors or employees of other companies). In this case, it is ensured that only employees have access to the allowance. The subsidy can be customized for a wide variety of use cases.
The food subsidy is a highly valued benefit that attracts employees out of the building and back to the office.
