FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Utilizing Desktop Dining, time-crunched workers satisfy lunchtime hunger as restaurants receive and fulfill bulk food orders
Growing business demands, looming deadlines and hectic lifestyles have many working Americans lacking the time to step away from their cubicles for lunch. In fact, an American Dietetic Association survey reported that 75 percent of office workers eat lunch at their desks as often as two or three times a week. BigHoller, a leader in restaurant online ordering services, in collaboration with Apple Spice Junction, a nationwide box lunch delivery business, heard the call of corporate grumbling bellies and responded. The result: Desktop Dining, a user-friendly, web-based program that allows customers to schedule their lunch delivery —all with a few mouse clicks from their desktop. Lunch orders are grouped together for bulk fulfillment and the savings from this process are passed onto Apple Spice Junction’s customers.
Mike Alder, Owner and Area Developer for Apple Spice Junction remarked that the Desktop Dining service, which has been purchased and employed in more than a dozen cities by over 50 corporate clients, has immensely simplified ASJ’s once complicated box lunch delivery and catering service.
“Not only can customers conveniently browse menus and schedule food orders from office desktop accounts, but now we seamlessly receive and fulfill bulk electronic orders that are organized by menu items, company location and delivery times. This makes our job easier, our service better and our customers happier,” Alder commented.
