Snacking. Whether it is to tide you over between back to back meetings, or give you the push you need to get past the 2:30 slump, everyone needs a little something to get through the work day. Snacking has never been more prevalent, with 44% of workers ages 25-34 choosing to forgo the traditional three square meals a day for periodic snacking. With this in mind, Aramark created Snack Boxes. Expertly curated selections offering delicious snacks – for every type of snacker. In a time where the “office” can be just about anywhere, your favorite snacks should be there too.
At Aramark, we are serious about our snacking. After several months of offices working remote, it is easy to wonder what the future holds for snacking in the workplace. How have things changed? How have they stayed the same? One thing is for certain, snacking will look different.

Post drinking tea do you ever feel like your mood is oh so much brighter? Many folks who drink tea testify to the relaxing and invigorating feeling it brings.
