Our mission: To be the most client-focused food company and to redefine the workplace food experience for the next generation.
Savory brings healthful, responsibly-sourced meals & thoughtful hospitality-rich experiences to workplaces. Our innovative food(as a) service approach has a lean on-site presence to deliver tenants unmatched freshness and reliability. Our software-enabled hub-and-spoke model leverages our central kitchen, thereby making programs available at a cost that is second to none. We provide clients with 50-5,000+ employees office-wide meals programs, in-office café / espresso bar experiences, individual meal delivery, meeting catering, pantry management, and more.
Our vision is to improve the experience of fresh food delivery at the workplace, while continuing to find new ways to incorporate sustainable, local and responsible products into Savory’s expansive offerings. Our commitment to developing and implementing industry-leading technologies, passion for hospitality and determination to trail-blaze the B2B food on demand category drives our pursuit of excellence and innovation in food at the workplace.
Savory has delivered over 1.5 million meals from our 9,000sqft Manhattan kitchen to clients at hundreds of the world’s most prestigious companies, including Goldman Sachs, Gibson Dunn and The Carlyle Group. We have been selected as the preferred provider for tenants at Rockefeller Center. Our diverse team has experience at Jean-Georges, Bouley, The Standard, Google and McKinsey, and our shared philosophy is that no detail is too small and no request too large.
We are a passionate, innovative, young(ish?) team that is extremely hardworking but not afraid to poke fun at ourselves. We feel lucky to have the rare opportunity to be part of an entirely new category of food, and are passionate about re-inventing office food culture. The work we do is not always easy, but it stretches team members and exposes them to a rapidly growing company while giving them direct access to the next generation of rising entrepreneurs in food and technology.Job Description
