Calculating the actual cost of all the food that’s brought into the office is a tricky business. It’s like navigating around an iceberg. The invoice amount – that nice round number that totals the menu prices of the food – is the easy-to-see chunk of ice that sticks out of the water. And just like an iceberg, there’s always something deeper, hidden just below the surface. In this case, it’s the real cost of feeding your office. Whether it’s catered meetings, celebratory employee events, or dinner for individuals working late, the hidden costs of these food purchases can drive up the true cost by nearly 30 percent – and most companies are unaware of the impact it has on the bottom line. This paper will help you identify the most common hidden costs – from employee abuse to time-wasting procedures – and most importantly, explain how online food ordering and billing services can help eliminate them.
