"Feeding souls at companies all across the county"
Detroit, MI (PRWEB) April 03, 2013
When it comes to free food in the office, more companies are trying to keep up with the Joneses or with the Zuckerbergs. Never before has catering lunch for the team been so easy since Soul & Co.
Amazing catered meals for employees, long a cherished perk at web companies, now are spreading to more traditional businesses, including law firms, manufacturing shops and architectural firms, according to some food service companies.
"Its called the 'Google Effect,' " says Greg Casella, owner of catering company Catered Too! in San Jose.
Google Inc.'s free food and drinks, including such offerings as sushi and fresh-ground espresso, helped spark the fashion of deluxe cafeterias or catered meals at Internet companies like Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook Inc. Some non-tech companies say they now need to do the same to attract employees who are used to hearing about these perks from their friends in tech jobs.
Detroit’s Soul & Company brings lunch weekly to companies all over the country to employees in a workspace from all industries. Unlike most companies in the food service industries, Soul & Company will deliver food to any company at any location, and in any city. The food comes from a rotation of local restaurants, food trucks, private chefs, and pop up kitchens.
Soul & Company Chief Executive D’Andre Ealy says his company is helping to make companies more productive as well as increasing business for local vendors of all sizes. He believes that allowing companies to set a budget that is comfortable for them and receive amazing food is the start of a growing industry. Local food vendors are sometimes overlooked, but Soul & Company is making the process open.
The service is so simple and allows any company of any size to use the service.
