How We’re Keeping You Safe

Office life is changing. As a business leader, there’s more for you to navigate than ever before.

We’re here to help. We believe providing food for your workforce is a key move towards keeping offices safe in this new era of social distancing.

Rather than leaving for lunch and bringing new germs back to the office, you may want employees to stay put by providing them meals and snacks – more than a perk, providing food is prudent office management.

Over the last 35 years, Blue Plate has become Chicago’s most trusted caterer, with significant expertise around providing workplace meals and snacks for companies ranging from small businesses to the Fortune 500.

Our food safety standards are unmatched due to the state-of-the-art 20,000 sq. ft kitchen facility we created in 2017. Frankly, at the time it was more than we needed in terms of size and food safety technology – who knew our customers would need it now more than ever.

Leveraging our unmatched facility and deep experience in workplace dining, Blue Plate is uniquely positioned to provide healthy and delicious meals and snacks for your employees with unparalleled food safety standards.

We’re wishing you and your colleagues nothing but the best as we all navigate this new shared future together.
