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 ordinary vending machine?What do you want for your workplace?

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 a vending machine or a Foodji offers numerous advantages that can have a positive impact on the company, culture and well-being of employees. However, many companies also want to pay attention to the health and flexibility of their employees. Healthy food should be available around the clock.

That is 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 staff. In-house catering helps to increase employee satisfaction as it provides employees with a pleasant and social environment in which they can interact and relax. This encourages interaction, which improves the sense of togetherness and the working atmosphere and strengthens employee loyalty.

Frequently asked questions

Frequently asked questions about Foodji

Why is the Foodji suitable for employee catering and other vending machines are not?

The Foodji is not an ordinary vending machine or snack machine, but a food vending machine that mainly provides fresh main dishes in addition to cold drinks, snacks and small refreshments. It is ready for use around the clock and can be ordered via the Foodji app or directly from the vending machine.

Its closed, hygienic system makes it a real eye-catcher in the office. The secure system also makes it suitable for production sites - the cold chain is not interrupted and the food is protected from production work.

How does the food from the Foodji differ from the products from the vending machines?

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 fill 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. Have you heard about our new 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 vending machines, you can reserve your favorite dish 6 hours in advance in the Foodji app.

Can Foodji be used as a supplement to the canteen?

Many larger employers use Foodji as a supplement to their existing canteen.
Especially for companies with extended break times (e.g. night shifts), this is a decisive advantage for covering demand beyond the lunch break. With Foodji, opening hours can be easily extended at moderate cost. This primarily affects productionon and logistics companies or hospitals. But also offices with flexible working models also benefit from this. Branch offices or companies with a large campus are also popular use cases for a Foodji as a canteen supplement. In this way, all employees - regardless of their location/campus - can be reached with the benefit of communal catering.

How often do meals change at Foodji?

In contrast to conventional vending machines, the Foodji is freshly filled several times a week on set days. The menu changes with every refill. This ensures that the menu is tailored to your team. So if your team often orders salad, meat or has a vegetarian diet, more salads, meat dishes or vegetarian dishes will be offered. The food at Foodji tastes as fresh as you would expect from a normal company restaurant. Thanks to the variety, it is possible to order a different main course at Foodji every day for up to eight weeks. There is a varied, delicious lunch or breakfast to suit every taste.

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 allowance can be customized for a wide variety of use cases.
The meal allowance is a highly valued benefit that attracts employees out of the office and back to the office. Many vending machine services do not offer this allowance.
