Organizing team meals may sound fun, but we know it’s stressful. While DoorDash is a great option at home when you’re ordering for yourself without any meetings scheduled, it’s harder in the office. Everyday, you look through the same search results within the delivery range, only to pick the same 5 restaurants that meet your budget. When you send out the lunch link with an 11am deadline, folks complain about the restaurant, you’ll have to work with last-minute stragglers, and you’ll also have to keep in mind extras for guests. When your order is placed, it can come anytime between 12pm or 2pm (assuming the restaurant doesn’t cancel it), making it very difficult for those with a busy calendar. When the food arrives, you’ll have to sort through each individual item so people get what they ordered. There has to be a better solution!

Customers switch over to CaterCow from DoorDash

We felt the immediate change once we switched from DoorDash to CaterCow as our primary platform for lunch orders. The customer service is outstanding, and they worked closely with me to make sure our lunches stay within budget while also providing a delicious array of diverse cuisines. This was particularly difficult to do with DoorDash, as the price of the meal rarely equated to the price/person upon payment, giving us a small handful of options at the end of the day. The timeliness and accuracy of the order is a luxury you simply don't have when you order with DoorDash, where some lunches would be over an hour late! Overall, a wonderful service, highly recommend.
