PHOENIX, AZ -- "Lunch should be amazing," according to Peach, a five-year-old Seattle-based company that combines the best of text-based technology with the finest food in a local market. It launched in Phoenix at the beginning of October.

Workers and companies who sign up for Peach get a complete menu at the beginning of the week and then, each morning, they receive a shortlist of lunch options via SMS text featuring highly rated local restaurants. "We curate the best food from the best restaurants and bring healthy, filling meals to people who can't leave their desks or work in places where they have limited food choices," said Peach chief executive Nishant Singh.

Peach's Seattle clients include companies such as Amazon, GoDaddy and Deloitte. Some of these companies subsidize (or even cover the cost of) employees’ lunches, making it a win-win for companies who want to build a strong community culture and for employees who save money and time. The average lunch cost is around $10, with delivery, tax and tip included.

"Peach has given us some phenomenal exposure. We're now able to reach an audience sitting behind a desk that may be unable, because of distance or time constraints, to get out and try us," said Paseo, a Seattle restaurant partner,

Among the restaurants Peach currently works with in Phoenix are Fired Pie, Yogi's Grill, Planet Sub and The Bodhi to name a few. The company is seeking additional restaurant partners as it expands.

Peach is offering companies a free trial week upon sign-up, delivering free lunches to the entire staff.

Peach currently serves Phoenix, Greater Seattle, Boston, San Diego, and Orange County. It was named by GeekWire as one of the "Seattle 10" Innovative Companies and raised $8 million in 2015 for its expansion. Peach says it differs from other food-delivery services because of its text-based model, high-quality and affordable food choices, and appeal to companies that want to offer food-related benefits while minimizing choice and complexity.
