From the Paper:

"Many people are becoming aware of the fact that local/natural/organic foods are better for you, better for the environment and yet are often hard to come by especially in the work environment. This business would cater to other businesses and seek partnerships with both small and large businesses to feed employees with self serve options that qualify as local/natural and or organic specifically for events, rather than small ala cart daily options. All orders would be placed 24 hours prior to need and one week for larger events including more than 20 participants. The development of local/natural/organic food alternative businesses has been on the rise despite the downturn in the economy. People seem to care more and more about such issues as sustainability and local logistics and have environmental goals and standards as aspects of their business models. This business would allow the business world the opportunity to stand by this practice by reducing waste produced from food options at work as well as allowing individuals exposure to healthier regional and local offerings of products that are made by like minded companies who also have sustainable business models. The product would also be offered at comparable prices to medium range cost catered options that do not offer the sustainability model and be only slightly more expensive that cheep unhealthy options currently available on demand. Currently the options for sustainable food are limited for catered events in this region and such an offering would likely engender a great deal of response from consumers."
