Nothing brings people together quite like food. Sharing a delicious meal is one of life's simplest pleasures, so why do we often forgo it at work in favour of dining al-desko? It's simple really: finding a restaurant that suits the whole team, getting everyone there on time, and waiting around for service can be a bit of a faff. When you're bogged down with deadlines, a supermarket sarnie scoffed in solitude in front of your laptop can all too easily become the norm.
But what if you could get your favourite dishes delivered to your desk? That's where City Pantry comes in. These guys work with over 400 brilliant restaurants and caterers across London to bring top nosh direct to your office. So step away from the meal deal — it's time to reclaim your lunch hour and, while you're at it, make those breakfast meetings, coffee mornings and after-work get-togethers a bit more exciting.
Here's how it works: search the City Pantry website by cuisine-type, dietary requirements, order size, budget and occasion or meal-type. Then select the most mouth-watering option, choose your 30 minute delivery window, and keep an eye on your order's progress via live tracking links. Simple, right?
You can place your order way in advance, or on the fly — some of City Pantry's partners can get you food with just three hours' notice.
What sort of grub are we talking about, then? The short answer is... pretty much anything that tickles your fancy. Some of City Panty's partners that you might recognise include Itsu, Leon, Pizza Pilgrims, Patty & Bun, Chilango, Homeslice, Pieminister, and Dominique Ansel — just pop your postcode in here to see what's available near you.
