US-based corporate catering firm Alchemista has expanded its portfolio with the launch of an individualised, online food ordering service in Boston and further afield.
Known as Alchemista One, the model will expand the presence of the company’s corporate catering offerings to several smaller organisations.
Customers can visit the company’s online platform to use the service and place orders from a range of restaurants offering various menus. All they need to do is submit an online form to start ordering from the website.
In addition, the catering allows customers to choose ‘drop off’ or ‘spoil me’ options. If these are selected, a client attendant will be assigned to visit the orderer’s location to deliver food.
Alchemista founder and CEO Christine Marcus said: “Ordering food for an office has always been a challenge, from quantity to reliability, budgeting to presentation.
“With Alchemista, we solved those pain points for larger companies mainly in tech, pharma, and healthcare who, through our service, can order hassle-free, out-of-the-box weekly lunches for their staff at the cost of approximately $750/person/year.
“Using our new proprietary algorithm, I’m thrilled to have figured out a way to bring our highly curated services to an even bigger audience through Alchemista One.”
In addition, the catering firm is planning to launch the service in the Washington DC market, which will be followed by a nationwide expansion.
Founded in 2012 by MIT Sloan graduate Christine Marcus, Alchemista offers corporate catering services through a recurring model that enables clients to place orders for daily, weekly or monthly meals.
