Corporate meetings just got a whole lot healthier thanks to KitcheNet, a Chicago-based company delivering fresh produce to corporate clients to promote employee wellness.

Founded in 2017 by Trista Li, KitcheNet offers services for corporate offices, meetings, snack breaks, retreats and more, allowing clients the option of healthy eating during the work day. 

“Fruit in offices is often ugly and sad. Eating should be healthy and fun, so we bring in options for people who want to eat healthier while also providing an educational opportunity,” Li says.

In addition to providing fresh fruit, KitcheNet offers the option of hiring an assistant to help cut fruit and teach attendees about the more exotic fruits on the menu. KitcheNet donates a portion of its proceeds to underserved communities in the area, making fresh produce more accessible in Chicago food deserts.

Prices are typically $1.25-$3 per person, and a booking fee is dependent on group size and the type of event with an hourly fee for use of an assistant. KitcheNet also offers subscriptions for offices that want to restock monthly. 

“Corporate clients can promote wellness and sustainability with KitcheNet’s services while also giving back to the community,” Li says. “You can do good just by eating well.” 

Perhaps your attendees have hopped on those electric bikes and e-scooters that are scattered all over metropolitan areas throughout California. That’s old news, no question. Yet it’s a sure bet they’ve never been on a Vintage Electric Cruz Bike, because only 250 of them ever have been made. Mad Dogs & Englishmen Bike Shop in Carmel has a fleet of these smile generators, as well as a fleet of knowledgeable guides to lead scenic group tours. 

 

 

Put yourself in the middle of the action next time you visit British Columbia. All three of the movies in the “Descendants” global franchise were filmed in Vancouver and Vancouver Island. Fans can snap selfies with popular characters, unlock clips from “Descendants 3” played against the back-drop of where they were actually filmed, and complete exciting missions.

 

British Columbia’s JW Marriott Parq Vancouver and the DOUGLAS located in Parq Vancouver are making it easier for event planners to manage their events at the venues with the Marriott Meeting Services App, managed by the JW Event Concierge. The app allows planners to request, respond and connect in real-time with hotel event staff on any web-enabled device.
