Lunch Break 2.0 – Catering in Bavaria meets Israeli technology

The Israeli IT company Blue Chilli's decision to come to Bavaria brings a healthy change of pace to the sometimes monotonous lunch break.

The Munich-based Israeli start-up in particular provides SMEs with the opportunity of offering their employees inexpensive and healthy lunchtime meals in restaurants thanks to legally regulated subsidies. In turn, this creates tax savings for the companies while improving the performance of their employees through balanced nutrition. Blue Chilli makes it possible to choose from a large number of hand-picked restaurants and offers in close proximity every day. This is of particular interest to companies which do not have any public or company-run cafeterias close by.

The handling for the employees is very quick and easy thanks to an app developed specifically for Blue Chilli. With the launch of the new app in early October, Blue Chilli will be fully up and running and also on the look-out for other interested companies and restaurants. Thanks to an interactive map, the app allows users to find the closest partner restaurant in a matter of seconds. The app also contains information on the restaurant, the lunch menu and opening hours. Blue Chilli customers also benefit from exclusive offers. And, of course, in the age of digitization, payment transactions are handled completely cashless. Furthermore, the app makes it possible to track all account details at any time.

As the first international location of this company, Munich can be proud of being part of this innovative service. Invest in Bavaria is very pleased that Blue Chilli chose Munich as its company location. According to Mr. Shai Ron, CEO and co-founder of Blue Chilli, Munich is not only ready for an innovation of this kind, but it also provides the right infrastructure for such a product.
