Lunch-goers in San Francisco now have the chance to order dishes to their offices from local restaurants through a mobile app. EAT Club, a company that delivers lunch to offices every afternoon, did a private beta launch in San Francisco yesterday, Tech Crunch reported. Using a new method of delivery, EAT Club will bring the orders to different neighborhoods with a food truck. App users will be notified to pick up their lunch (without waiting in line) when the vehicle arrives in the area.
“The bus will be alternating daily locations between the Financial District and SOMA,” a representative from EAT Club told The Daily Meal. “We plan to expand our services to locations in the city where we are expecting high demand.” A current challenge they face is meeting the demands of thousands of people waiting to use their service. “We can only serve one particular location at a time, but this is something that will be addressed as we get more vehicles,” he says.
To try this service, customers must request for an invitation on the EAT Club San Francisco website. We recommend that you message them on their Twitter page as well to get a faster invite. You can then choose from a daily menu that offers a variety of lunches from several popular local eateries.
The food truck may not show up near your workplace just yet, but when it does, expect a line-free and hassle-free experience, which is a nice change of pace.
