Co-working is all the rage amongst freelancers and start-ups. Not only does it feel good to get out of the house, the support and camaraderie of co-working spaces is always a huge morale boost.
Due to their soaring popularity (there’s estimated to be 3.8 million users worldwide this year!), co-working spaces are continuously expanding their perks and offerings.
While your co-working space may have a breakroom like a regular office, it’s most likely lacking in food options.
Here are three ways to incorporate food into your co-working spaces.
Have a beverage station.
The office coffee maker is a thing even for co-working spaces. Consider investing in a single serve machine and having a few flavors available. And always be sure to have options for tea drinkers.
Stock the station with sweeteners, assorted creamers and milks, and bonus points if you display branded coffee mugs.
Work with local corporate lunch caterers.
Looking to offer lunch? It’s much easier and more cost effective to place one large order with a restaurant. Try offering catering once a week from a corporate lunch caterer who serves family style with allergens on the side. This allows participants to grab only what they’d like.
Psst! You can even charge participants. They’ll appreciate the convenience.
Stock healthy snacks.
Eating well has become more than a trend, and many offices are adopting healthy snack options in their breakroom. In fact, not only do nutrient-dense meals improve health, they boost productivity by as much as 150%!
Fill your pantry with granola, nuts, dried fruit, and fresh fruit and include some yogurt in the fridge.
With co-working spaces thriving, it’s essential to incorporate perks and benefits that will keep your co-workers coming back. Food is always a great place to start!
