When I spoke with Christine Marcus (Sloan Fellow ’12) a year ago, she asked me about my experience with organizing catering for the SWIM conference.  As it turns out, she was serious about making it easier for MIT students to do business with local caterers.

This vision led Christine to start Phoodeez with her Sloan classmate, Sal Lupoli, who is in the restaurant industry. Phoodeez is an online catering company that streamlines large food orders reducing time and stress for customers including students like me and the SWIM conference organizers.

Christine’s idea caught on like wild fire.  She had scores of emails from friends around campus placing orders before she’d even launched the website!  It was instantly popular among the student body but there is more to it.  Phoodeez also strives to help local restuarants and caterers grow their catering business.  Its a win-win for customers and businesses.  Early feedback from Phoodeez clients was very positive.  Customers reported hassle-free ordering, great food within budget and best of all – Phoodeez helps customers to never over order!

Phoodeez has an ambitious mission to reinvent the way large organizations across America manage their catering orders. Phoodeez is currently serving several locations in the Boston area with more locations coming soon.

Armed with her MIT Sloan MBA, Christine applies her skills and business judgement everyday as CEO of Phoodeez.  Among her many accomplishments as CEO is her commitment to a green mission at Phoodeez, where every restaurant she does business with is sustainable.  Christine is committed to delivering only the best service to her customers from ordering to delivery and account management.  She takes a personal interest in ensuring that only the top rated caterers are chosen suppliers on the company website.
