The Cater2.me Vendor team eats, breathes and dreams great food. Exploring new cuisines and staying in the know about the top local eateries is an integral part of what our team does on a regular basis. You'll scour the culinary landscape to find the best, local chefs, food trucks and restaurants to join our program and will then lead them through the onboarding process from start to finish. The team creates and fosters close relationships with our vendors to provide the best food in the business to our clients.
Cater2.me is a growing mid-size startup on a mission to make eating at work amazing. We're changing the way employees eat by drawing from a diverse set of local, passionate food providers that are making company meals more exciting inside and outside of the office. We work collaboratively across 11 US offices, from San Francisco and New York to Austin and LA.
