New Partnership Reimagines Food and Catering Services for the Office
Boston – October 12, 2020 – HqO, the end-to-end operating system for commercial office buildings, has partnered with sweetgreen on its Outpost initiative, an innovative food program that makes it convenient to get healthy food delivered Monday through Friday for healthcare, residential, and commercial clients.
“Tenants and their employees have been looking for safe food services as they make the transition back to the workplace, while restaurants have been seeking new ways to engage their suddenly distanced consumers due to the pandemic,” said Reid Snyder, Director of Platform Solutions at HqO. “This partnership is a win-win for both sides of the equation. As a provider, sweetgreen’s contactless delivery and quality solutions play a significant role in this, ensuring that everyone involved has easy access to a variety of healthy food options.”
The partnership ultimately reimagines catering services and how office workers order food, providing a safe program that incorporates custom solutions for any workplace. The Outpost program includes a seamless setup where clients can choose specific delivery days and drop-off times, full customer support, and healthy food options — such as grain bowls, salads, plates, and sides — that are made fresh daily to support all food preferences. Through the HqO app, users will be able to easily order the meal of their choice with full customization, have access to real-time order tracking, and feel comforted by contact-free pickup.
“Working with partners like HqO enables us to reach more businesses who are looking for reliable and convenient food programs in light of our shifting environment and its impact on workplaces,” said Daniel Shlossman, VP of Growth at sweetgreen. “Businesses are starting to approach food services and benefits for their employees differently, and we’re proud to be a safe and trusted solution for companies across the nation.”
