How Chewse Works

About Chewse

Chewse is a corporate catering service that partners with local restaurants to provide delicious, family style meals for your office.

We are a diverse, culture-first corporate catering company that cares deeply about our clients and about each other. We partner with local restaurants to provide delicious, family-style meals for your office while giving back to the community through our Chewse to Give food donation program.

Meals we serve

Chewse serves all meals! Breakfast, lunch, dinner, happy hour, treats – you name it, we can do it!

What comes with each meal

This isn’t our first rodeo, we’ve got you all taken care of! With each meal you can expect the food (served in disposable catering packaging), a printed menu board, and labels with descriptions and dietary restriction information. If you’d like, we can also include compostable serving utensils and place settings at no additional cost.

Offices using our Meal Hosting service can receive elevated presentation including sternos, reusable serviceware, and table linens and/or decoration all based on your preferences.

Dietary Restrictions and Food Allergies

Everyone deserves a seat at our table, so accommodating for your team’s needs and preferences is our main focus. We can ensure that diners with certain dietary restrictions and allergens have complete meals. While we cannot guarantee a complete meal for every dietary restriction or preference, we include dietary restriction and allergen information on labels. When you start working with Chewse, we’ll collect information about your team’s dietary restrictions (vegetarian, vegan, gluten free) and allergens (dairy, soy, nuts, shellfish, eggs). These we be displayed on our your Meal Calendar and the labels provided with your meals.

You can update your team’s dietary restriction information anytime by contacting the Help Desk at love@chewse.com.

Choosing your orders

Serving you the tastiest foods from local restaurants is our priority! When you begin with Chewse, our Meal Planning Team will gather your team’s food preferences and dietary restrictions, and they’ll ensure that the package you’ve selected serves your meal program’s needs.

From there, our platform selects delicious foods that align with your needs and go together best. If for any reason you’re unhappy with a meal, you can request a change to a different restaurant directly on the website. At this time, we are not able to accommodate specific item requests.

Self-Serve Service

Chewse meals are served family-style, which means they will arrive in large disposable trays and set up buffet style so your team can line up and serve themselves. Your table will be set up with a printed menu board, and labels with descriptions and dietary restriction information. If you’d like, we can also include compostable serving utensils and place settings at no additional cost.

Hosted Service

If you have our Hosted Service you’ll receive an elevated presentation including sternos, reusable serviceware, and table linens and/or decoration all based on your preferences. Your meal host will serve the items upon request and make sure that the buffet table remains clean throughout the meal. After your meal is over our meal host will clean up the buffet table and package up your leftovers, with the option of us handling the donation of your leftovers if you chose to do so.

How ordering by headcount works

There will be no empty bellies on our watch! Our platform and Meal Planning Team will identify the correct amount of food for your team from the beginning.

We order on a per person basis, so ordering for your office’s headcount should suffice. If your team tends to take heartier portions, we recommend adding the Big Eater Package, where we’ll include 50% more of the main dishes. You can also increase your guest count to receive a little more of everything.

Chewse Packages

If you are serving 15 or more diners we will have a package that works for your team! Chewse Packages ensure your meal program is consistent. A Package includes meal composition, portion and service expectations.

Leftovers

As a part of our Chewse to Give program, our hosts will package up your leftovers and take them back to the Chewse office, where our donation partner will pick them up and deliver them to a local non-profits.

Order Minimum

We’d love to serve you, but like any other business, we do have a minimum price needed to operate. Our order minimum is $225 and the smallest order we can fulfill is a 15 person order at $15 per person.

If you’re currently considering a meal program for your office, give us a try, you won’t be disappointed! We even offer a paid two week trial with no commitment needed.

Chewse Business Hours

Vegetarian, vegan, or allergen labels

Chewse labels will note all vegan or vegetarian dishes, as well as the following common FDA allergens that may be present: gluten, nuts, dairy, soy, eggs, shellfish. Additionally, this information will be surfaced on labels that will be set up with your meal.

As with any restaurant-prepared meal, cross contamination is possible. If this is a concern for your team, please chat directly with us about it.

You can update your team’s dietary restriction information anytime by contacting the Help Desk at love@chewse.com.

Ordering enough food for your team

There will be no empty bellies on our watch! Our platform and Meal Planning Team will identify the correct amount of food for your team from the beginning.

We order on a per person basis, so ordering for your office’s headcount should suffice.
