Eating together is a time-tested way to build stronger relationships among employees. Sharing in the lunchtime experience becomes a ritual that people look forward to. Teams that eat together, like each other more and end up working together more effectively.

Investing in lunch directly impacts productivity.
Employees are more productive because they don’t have to leave the office, saving between 30-60 minutes each day that lunch is offered. Getting this productivity back in exchange for providing lunch is an investment worth making.
