Journey & Impact

TDK faced challenges with their previous meal delivery service, such as missed deliveries, lack of variety, and complex setup needs.

They required a solution that could cater to two departments in San Jose and one in Berkeley, with special arrangements for executives including different subsidy amounts and exclusive menus.

Handling these complexities was overwhelming for their office management team. Since partnering with Chowmill in April 2022, TDK has successfully automated their meal delivery process, incorporating specific features to meet their unique needs, leading to a streamlined operation and a satisfied client.
