HqO and Curbside Kitchen Partnership Provides Contactless Food Solutions for CRE
Mobile Offerings Curate Cuisine, Community, and Convenience for Tenants
BOSTON – November 9, 2020 – HqO, the end-to-end tenant experience operating system for commercial office buildings, has partnered with Curbside Kitchen, a company that has reimagined the food truck experience for employees adapting to the “new normal.” Through the HqO app, Curbside Kitchen will provide tenants with a contactless solution for ordering fresh and delectable food. As companies develop their back-to-workplace strategies, access to affordable, reliable, and safe amenities for tenants has become critical to the success of the tenant experience.
“With so much uncertainty surrounding the return to the workplace, our clients are looking at ways to leverage mobile offerings to supplement their on-site amenities,” said Reid Snyder, Director of Platform Solutions at HqO. “Partners like Curbside Kitchen allow property teams to easily book food trucks for their buildings, accessing more diverse food options for their tenants.”
Through their easy-to-use app, Curbside Kitchen’s food truck management platform allows building owners to offer full breakfast, lunch, or dinner services to their tenants. The all-in-one platform provides building managers with tools for scheduling food trucks, circulating menus with tenants, entering orders, marketing their customized programs directly to the individual users in their buildings, and feedback loops on how trucks are performing at properties. Though there’s no replacing the tried-and-true appeal of tenants walking up to their favorite food truck and waiting for their lunch or dinner to come out ready to eat, COVID-19 has changed many rituals we’ve all grown accustomed to — including the way your tenants want to order and receive their food.
“Curbside Kitchen is an essential part of the back-to-workplace strategy for commercial building owners,” said Amy Katz, CEO and Co-Founder of Curbside Kitchen. “Being part of HqO’s suite of offerings is an incredible opportunity to provide more options for the tenants in the commercial buildings that they serve. COVID-19 has changed the way people eat at home and at their workplace. The world was not prepared for the volume of delivery, and we believe that Curbside Kitchen can play a vital role today and in the future. Our integration with HqO will facilitate contactless ordering that provides tenants the ability to order and dine on delicious and diverse cuisine, all from the comfort of their desk.”
Curbside Kitchen is a valued partner in HqO’s Marketplace, which allows customers to browse, procure, and manage a curated catalogue of best-in-class developers and vendors that can add value to their portfolio. From one single tool, customers can navigate the proptech landscape and identify partners that fit their specific needs. HqO customers are now able to save time procuring service providers, accelerate innovation within their existing technology stack, and deliver better tenant outcomes.
