“All we knew when we got into this business was that people wanted a better option for food at their office. That’s what we knew. We didn’t exactly know how we were going to solve for that. We had a general idea, and that’s where the innovation of the LeanBox itself came out of, which is a smart refrigerator, a hi-tech kiosk, whatever you want to call it… in the end, it’s the ability to have a retail that brings interesting, unique, local, fresh food to people where they need it the most, which is Monday through Friday, 9-5.”
The Clean Food Club spent the day with Lean Box, one of Boston’s most innovative new startups, and got an inside look at how they’re changing office food culture.
