As droves of workers settle into the new normal of hybrid work — partly remote, partly in-person — more companies are looking for solutions to keep employees’ snack cravings at bay, whether at home or in the office.
Why do office snacks matter?
Studies show that not only do free snacks at work boost employee morale and productivity, they also have a low impact on bottom-line expenses compared to health insurance or 401(k) matches.
Now that many workers are returning to offices at least part-time after being remote during the pandemic, the lure of the snack is strong.
How to keep it healthy
One company, HUNGRY, which offers a tech-enabled platform to provide exceptional food and events solutions for corporate America, has recently acquired the healthy and clean snack foods company NatureBox.
The California-based NatureBox, which had previously raised close to $60 million in funding, offers better-for-you snacks like sugar-free Stryve Beef Biltong and Peanut Butter Maca Cookies delivered direct to homes and offices.
Its popular SnackPass provides customized snacking favorites for employees in large or small offices, both on-site and remote, and its private-label bulk snacks are vastly more exciting and cleaner than what’s in most office pantries.
The HUNGRY x NatureBox advantage
“Adding NatureBox to the HUNGRY platform enables us to provide our clients with exclusive access to NatureBox-branded snacks,” said HUNGRY co-founder and CEO Jeff Grass.
“NatureBox’s healthy snacks will be an outstanding complement to HUNGRY’s business-catering solutions, creating a game-changing combination of exceptional quality and service. Companies right now are looking for one partner to handle all of their in-office food, snacking, and beverage needs, and now more than ever, HUNGRY is that complete partner for them.”
HUNGRY, founded in 2017 by entrepreneurs Eman Pahlavani, Shy Pahlevani, and Grass, includes notable investors such as Jay-Z’s Marcy Venture Partners, Kevin Hart, Usher, Ndamukong Suh, Tom Colicchio, and Ming Tsai. The company is headquartered in Washington, D.C., and has rapidly growing operations in Philadelphia, Atlanta, Boston, New York City, Austin, Dallas, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.
