About Chewse

Chewse (pronounced “choose”) is dedicated to addressing all of your office catering needs.

We provide office meals from the top local restaurants and serve it up like it’s Thanksgiving day. Your employees dive in, devour and savor meals from around the city, that perfectly align with your office’s palate preferences. The team walks away with happy bellies, and something that can’t be served on a platter – Human connection.

Family style meals create a breeding ground for culture, (and I’m not talking about the kombucha). Opinions and experiences are shared, new ideas are buzzing through the atmosphere, and most importantly; people feel heard and acknowledged. Feelings of excitement and diversity, need to be supported by a backbone of security and belonging for people to do their best work.

Our Founder

Chewse is led by co-founder and CEO Tracy Lawrence. Tracy was recently highlighted in Forbes magazine’s 30 under 30 in the food and drink category.

The genesis for the company came from a vulnerable place in her childhood when she was bullied. “When I was 10 years old, I was bullied so badly that I was eating lunch alone in a bathroom stall from the ages of 7 to 10. It was a really difficult time,” she said. “I never connected the dots until later in my life:. But this is why I built a company that ensures no one eats lunch alone and what pushed me toward creating a company around food. I just found it so comforting. The best part of my day is eating lunch with my team. That’s how you build authentic relationships.”

Later in her adult life, Tracy became an event planner and quickly realized what a nightmare it is to handle meals for all-hands meetings, given everyone’s different dietary restrictions and preferences. Thus Chewse was born.
