EAT Club Expands Leadership Team to Pioneer Sustainable Food Delivery
Focusing on sustainability at scale, EAT Club adds industry veteran Eric Quick to executive bench as VP of Culinary Operations
January 14, 2015 - EAT Club, the company that is rapidly transforming the way small to medium sized businesses approach office meal benefits, announces the hire of Eric Quick as Vice President of Culinary Operations, to strengthen the company’s already powerful team. Quick is a food industry expert who brings a focus on sustainability to every level of EAT Club’s culinary development, from meal design to green packaging initiatives. In an industry notorious for waste, EAT Club and Quick are tackling scalable sustainability by improving food planning, development and logistics to make lunch - and life - better at work.
With over twenty five years of experience in operations management in the industries of food service, e-commerce and other related industries, Quick most recently held the role of President & CEO of Froovie Organics, an organic lifestyle brand that integrates food, technology and wellness. Prior to Froovie, Quick held senior leadership positions with start-up ventures and notable Fortune 50 companies such as Disney, Revolution Foods, and Safeway. Quick has also been honored with several retail, operational and design awards, and even has a unique patent for design and manufacturing process for the first “Seatbelt Ready Takeout Bag” from the US Patent and Trade Office.
“Eric brings a unique passion and expertise to our team, and I’m confident that his addition will buoy our ultimate goal of making life at work better for as many people as possible,” said EAT Club CEO, Frank Han. “Our executive team is focused on accelerating EAT Club’s growth while thoughtfully employing sustainable practices that we hope will support the long term health of our consumers, our business and the planet.”
At EAT Club, Quick will help the company continue to redefine the office lunch experience. By giving employees the ability to personally select their meal, EAT Club already takes the hassle out of lunch. With the addition of Quick as VP of Culinary Operations, sustainability will also be at the forefront - including locally sourced ingredients, and minimal and compostable packaging. With EAT Club, employees can feel good about lunch in more ways than one, by choosing filling and delicious meals that encourage afternoon productivity, and that are eco-friendly as well.
“Office lunches in Silicon Valley are known for being extravagant, and that often results in significant waste,” said Quick. “My long-standing passion for sustainability perfectly aligns with EAT Club’s mission to make lunch at work better - not only for individuals, but for the community at large - and I’m excited to make a real impact by implementing more environmentally-friendly practices for the company.”
Founded in 2010, EAT Club delivers meals to thousands of companies. EAT Club is dedicated to enhancing the workplace lunch experience for employees, office managers and executives alike by building easy-to-order menus that cater to every type of eater and foster a positive and collaborative work environment.
