What companies order for lunch
To find out what employees in Moscow companies usually eat, The Village turned to one of the office lunch suppliers and asked about typical orders.
Vladimir Orlov, General Director of the food ordering service Obed.ru: “We work with more than 7,000 companies in Moscow and St. Petersburg. 15% of the total number of orders of employees falls on complex lunches. About 10 thousand “complexes” are ordered from us every day, which consist of two or three items. This includes salad, first and second courses from traditional Russian cuisine. 53% of orders are for individual dishes, such as borscht, fish soup, Russian salad, vinaigrette, cabbage soup, pancakes, etc. We call them "understandable". For comparison: according to our statistics, on average, a person orders 15 pizzas per year, while borscht and Russian salad order 136 and 165 plates, respectively. The remaining 32% experiment and try to diversify their diet with “incomprehensible” foods. These are dishes with such names as Teschiny Tears, where the main ingredient is pickled tomatoes and garlic, or, for example, Govorun salad made from beef, fried mushrooms and bell peppers. But in the Eugene salad, the main component is Chinese cabbage.
According to our observations, set meals are preferred by sales and customer service professionals. Due to limited time to choose from and the lunch itself. Creative workers, such as designers, PR managers, marketers, are more likely to take separate dishes: they order sushi, Chinese food, and sometimes hamburgers and kebabs. IT employees also love dishes from Chinese chefs; from Russian cuisine, they often ask to bring pies and pies to the office. True, set meals are also present in their diet. Top managers order expensive meals. That is, it can be cabbage soup, but from the Cafe Pushkin restaurant. The percentage of orders for complex solutions from the "tops" is close to zero.
There are no special preferences for the days of the week for office workers. However, we notice that our clients periodically arrange themed days among colleagues: Italian, Mexican, Chinese. Such stories occur at the end of the week - mostly Fridays, less often - Thursdays. And for birthdays, employees are “affixed” with pizza or pies.
