MADISON, Wis. – EatStreet has eschewed cubicle farms in favor of workspaces that foster collaboration and connections. The online and mobile food ordering service provider recently unveiled its new headquarters in Madison.
Key features of the company’s new offices include a rooftop terrace, bike lockers, showers, a game room with ping-pong tables, shuffleboard, a kitchen, three beer taps, a 30-ft. bar — and interconnected work spaces.
“The game room and terrace are where people are going to come together, create friendships and work together,” Matt Howard, EatStreet co-founder and CEO said in a news release. “Collaboration has led us through three successful rounds of investor funding and national growth, and it doesn’t happen in cubicles.”
Howard added that the company has grown from three founders to more than 100 employees serving diners at 15,000 restaurants in more than 250 cities throughout the United States. “We ask our team to work hard, so we needed to create a space where they can play, too. We had to retain the culture and energy that's pushed us to where we are.”
The two-story headquarters, which covers nearly 20,000 sq. ft., is scheduled to open this month.
