Roses have their merits, but when it comes to your employees, food is a far better way to show your love and appreciation this Valentine’s Day.
Here at Seamless, food is a huge part of everyday life – so when we were looking at perks for our team, a food program seemed like the obvious choice.
We introduced a food program that gives employees a weekly lunch “credit” for their Seamless food ordering account, which can be used any day of the week. Not only can our people order whatever they fancy, but they also get a 10% discount off every order they place while at work.

Thankfully for you, awesome Seamless food programs aren’t just restricted to Seamless HQ! We’re able to implement easy-to-manage programs in any business – and they’re not only super easy to use, they’re gentle on the bottom line, too.
