What We're Building

Cater2.me simplifies the entire group catering experience. We make it easy to add variety to daily group meals, track ordering preferences and past ordering history, centralize feedback from group members, and maintain budget constraints. We streamline a process that takes over 40 hours per month for an organization to less than 1 hour per month (inclusive of month-end invoicing and feedback responses), with no increase in the client's costs or budget.
