What We Do

FOODWORKS builds community. Restaurants and the properties hosting them as pop-ups benefit by partnering with us. Guests enjoy a top-notch meal every time they visit a FOODWORKS restaurant, which keeps them coming back for more.

The FOODWORKS Difference

We connect your workplace with an inspired collection of rotating menus from your neighborhood restaurants. With a focus on women- and minority-owned businesses, we bring your favorite local foods into the workplace. Great food builds great communities, and you’re invited to join ours.



Employees want delicious and convenient dining options. FOODWORKS makes it easy to feature local restaurants onsite. All scheduling, contracts, logistics, and COMPASS standards –including QA and insurance – are vetted, approved, and managed by the FOODWORKS team.

Whether it’s a daily station takeover, pop-up event, or food truck activation, the FOODWORKS team works with you to meet any unique needs. At FOODWORKS, we always find a way to say – Yes!


Based on your need, the FOODWORKS team coordinates directly with local restaurant partners. Restaurant partners bring the food and labor to serve during peak times, and the onsite operator and restaurant partner split the revenue.


You don’t need the operational costs of a full-service café. Let us customize a full-service solution sure to fit your needs from one of our many suites of services.


Food is our foundation. It’s what we do. We are chef-driven, innovative leaders in the industry when it comes to our partnerships and capabilities. We only partner with local restaurants and businesses that share our high standards of customer service and culinary excellence.

Onboarding Process


    We customize every solution based on our clients' objectives, needs, and expectations. We do this by leveraging the resources of Compass Group while still applying a small-scale mindset with expertise, precision, and attention to detail.


    Our passion for food, people, and the communities we serve drives us to develop close partnerships and longstanding relationships with all our stakeholders while creating customized solutions to fit your needs.


    Each FOODWORKS market is supported by Experience Managers who identify, meet, evaluate, and qualify all potential partners. Our support teams are on hand to provide marketing, technology, social media, and operational support, ensuring personal customer service throughout the process.
