Sharebite, a mission-driven food ordering platform built for workplaces, announced a partnership with Vornado Realty Trust, New York City’s leading office landlord. Through this deal, Sharebite will become the exclusive office meal solution providing group orders for Vornado’s buildings, which cover 20.6 million square feet of Manhattan office space in 33 properties.
Employees in these properties can now order without any delivery fees from a diverse selection of restaurants such as Sweetgreen, Cava and Dig which are contactlessly delivered to designated drop-off points known as Sharebite Stations in their company lobbies.
In Vornado buildings, Sharebite will bring batched deliveries to Stations on tenant floors, reducing the flow of traffic in the buildings and helping to ease the transition back to in-person work. Tenants will also be able to use Vornado’s proprietary LIVE. WORK. DO. app, to place Sharebite orders.
With Vornado’s significant real estate footprint in New York City, this partnership will help drive accelerated growth for Sharebite by increasing exposure to and adoption by businesses within their properties.
“The addition of Sharebite’s concierge food delivery program will further expand Vornado’s rich amenity offering for our tenants,” said Glen Weiss, Vornado Realty Trust’s EVP and co-head of real estate. “Sharebite’s platform streamlines group food orders and contactless delivery while also contributing to a great cause—City Harvest. We are pleased to partner with Sharebite as part of our best-in-class tenant services.”
Each order placed with Sharebite results in a donation made to City Harvest, New York City’s largest food rescue organization that helps feed the more than 1.5 million New Yorkers, specifically to help alleviate childhood hunger in local communities.
“Sharebite’s goal is simple and it’s to provide workplaces with an easy solution for food ordering,” says Mohsin Memon, president & COO of Sharebite. “However, we’d like to take that a step further and find solutions for not only food ordering but for getting companies up and running, getting employees back in the office and providing local restaurants with more opportunities as they continue to heal. We’re honored to be Vornado’s office meal solution moving forward and we’re excited to continue to expand and help where we can in the ever-changing workplace.”
As companies re-imagine the workplace and bring people back to the office, Sharebite has seen a significant increase in demand for their products in recent months with order volume being up 30X in 2021 and 13X above pre-pandemic levels.
Sharebite is headquartered in New York City, with operations in Chicago, the Bay Area, Austin, Charlotte, Irvine, and Washington, DC.
