Foodee - Great Food Delivered to Your Office!

Foodee, the Vancouver-based corporate food concierge program has launched in Toronto! The curated corporate meal company has partnered with Toronto's leading chefs and restaurants to deliver Toronto's best in class cuisine directly to the company lunchroom, boardroom or cubicle. 

Foodee has made it their mission to solve the biggest problems facing corporate lunch hour: a lack of variety, meals too early or too late, and excessive package waste. Through Foodee's easy-to-use ordering system, offices now have access to easy group ordering and quality cuisine from carefully curated menus from the city's best-in-class restaurants. Paying close attention to its impact on the environment, Foodee uses biodegradable packaging, low emission delivery methods and has partnered with in-office composting programs to lower the carbon "footprint" around the corporate lunch.

"Our goal is to change the corporate lunch hour," says Ryan Spong, CEO of Foodee. "Eating great food together is the ultimate team-building exercise and we want to make that happen with the best food the city has to offer in the easiest way possible."

How it works: Tell the Foodee team how many people you need to feed, what type of food you're craving, dietary restrictions, your price point and Foodee will take care of the rest, ensuring that your food arrives on time, every time. With a low minimum order, customers can order online, by phone or email.

What a neat service - don't you agree? Delicious food being delivered right to your office! Definitely worth mentioning to your workplace and become your officer hero. I guess working through lunch may not be that bad now : )

I was invited to the Foodee launch party last week (pics below), which took place at Brassaii on King St. in Toronto. It was nice meeting CEO, Ryan Spong along with the Foodee team. We also got to enjoy a selection of delicious food and drinks from Foodee's local restaurant partners. Thanks for having me!

Timberland Fall/Winter 2014 Collection

I attended a preview event for Timberland's Fall collection a few weeks back. It was at Toronto's Bellwoods Brewery. Who knew that boots and beers goes together?  With over 40 years, Timberland is known for quality and craftsmanship. Well, same goes with Bellwoods Brewery, a locale that holds craftsmanship in the same high regard. I got to mingle with Toronto's tastemakers and experienced a rugged to refined beer tasting curated by Timberland's Josh McKellar and Bellwood's Brewmasters.

What a nice idea - A rugged to refined style & tasting collaboration! I had a great time and included some pics from the event below.




Now, back to Timberland's Fall/Winter 2014. The collection delivers style that's rugged and refined with performance that's weather-ready, all crafted with the environment in mind. Whether you're trekking to the office or cruising the city streets, the collection focuses on the versatility you need every day to be ready for anything. 

As mentioned before, Timberland has over 40 years of true quality and craftsmanship under its belt and continues to be an industry leader in shoe innovation. This year with the introduction of their new Sensorflex technology, Timberland is giving comfort a whole new feel. With a three layer suspension system that flexes with every step, you are guaranteed a smooth ride no matter the terrain.

Timberland continues to deliver the style and performance that the elements demand and Canadians trust. The collection is in stores now at select stores across Canada including Town Shoes, Foot Locker and Little Burgundy. For more details, you can always check out their website here.
