TLB Office Consulting: helping you manage daily catered meal programs

For those of you out there who are fortunate enough to be employed at a company who still offers daily catered breakfasts/lunches, I'm not only green with envy for obvious reasons (we have water fountains at my office...does that count?), but for the fact that, at one point in time, feeding hungry professionals was to be my 'day job.'

Most people cringe at the thought, the sheer gravity of handling and being responsible for feeding upwards of 100 hungry employees on a daily basis.  It's no small task!  And to successfully choose unanimously-pleasing, semi-balanced meals, day in and day out?  Well, that's not simple, either.  But here's something that is: I get it. 

So, for any receptionists/administrative assistants out there who have been assigned the laborious task of managing your company's catered meals program - whether it's traditional or via Seamless Web - and are completely overwhelmed ... Or, if you're a disgruntled employee who's unhappy with the catering at your place of work, I am here to help.  For 2+ years, I used to manage the daily catered lunch program at a prominent hedge fund for approximately 100 employees.  This experience is actually what planted the seed for starting The Lunch Belle in 2007...hence the name of my website.

Shoot me an email with a brief description of what you've been delegated or are up against: Lindsay@TheLunchBelle.com.  I will respond to your inquiry within 24-hours, guaranteed.

TLB Restaurant Consulting: help me help you

Help me help you see the obese, hot-pink elephant in the room.  After all, isn't the eminent death of a restaurant/lounge almost too obvious?  Apparently not. 

But to me, it is. 

Picture it: gorgeous space - awkward location - impossibly difficult menu, both in terms of price and ingredient comprehension - aloof staff, who care more about staring at their own reflection in the decorative mirror located behind their guest's heads, while explaining the evening's specials, than they do about earning a sense of rapport or that highly coveted return visit especially in NYC, when most people don't eat at the same place twice. 

It's a shame how many of these tainted venues and menus I've seen come and go.  What's worse, at least in my opinion, is being me, the outsider, vs. you, the insider, who can see exactly what went wrong.  My point?  I'd like to offer my services - free, for the time being - to any chefs, restaurateurs, bakeries, food trucks, etc. who are looking for some good, old-fashioned, honest feedback on their product, menu, or venue. 

Are you ready to "hear it?"  Because I'm ready to share it.  Email me and let's schedule something: Lindsay@TheLunchBelle.com


Until we eat again,

The Lunch Belle
