The article focuses on the decline in number of U.S. employees who are having their lunches due to the increasing pressure of work life. Based on a survey conducted by the Society for Foodservice Management, 41% of employees participate in lunches. Less employees are dining in office cafeterias despite the emergence of wireless technology that would allow them to work anywhere. Corporate dining operators should add services such as delivery and acceptance of debit card payment to attract employees.
