Through food, we build a more authentically connected world!
We believe teams that eat together, thrive together. Our quality, family-style meals
foster a sense of community and authentic connection.
We believe in Transparency
The way most companies treat salary information is deeply broken – so we changed it. We are 100% open on compensation at every level (really, check our jobs ads).
- Compensation should not be taboo. This doesn’t just embody our values, but empowers us to hire better, faster, & more fairly
- Our retention rates are over 3x the industry average
- Women hold over 50% of our leadership positions

The genesis for the company came from co-founder and CEO Tracy Lawrence, at 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. 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.
Our hiring process
We strive for a clear, simple, efficient, and fair hiring process at every step, and promise to get back to you in a timely manner. Some roles are a little different, but generally:
- The First Call – Here we’ll share more about the role including salary – and learn about you and your background.
- Internal Review – The Hiring Manager will then review your profile and we’ll confirm next steps ASAP

- Onsite Interview – These run around 4 hours at a local office, almost always include a shared meal, & will have you meeting with stakeholders from several different teams
- Your Offer – We’ll decide quickly and let you know the outcome. If making an offer, we’ll call to share discuss salary, equity, benefits, potential start dates, etc. then email you a summary. We always make everyone our best offer first, and don’t negotiate salaries
