Story

Tired of packing your lunch?

Or fed up with the pizza smell in the office?

You are what you eat… so don’t be cheap or fake with your food!

Boost your team’s energy with our bowls and lunchboxes. Our virtual caterer is winning over the great Quebec companies through their stomachs.

At the end of October 2016, Christian Genest, with his ADHD and obsession with box lunches, was constantly wondering what to eat after his daily workouts. After selling the Sushi Taxi group several months prior, and through his studies at MIT, he had learned:

– that technology was essential to starting a new company,
– that the food business model needed a total overhaul,
– and that healthy food should be super delicious or die!

Based on those thaughts, Buddha-Station was born.Since 2017, he has entrusted his project with a geek, circus-lover and foodie friend whom he met at the Beauce School of Entrepreneurship. Eric-Olivier Brousseau joined the project, bringing his strong tech experience with Outbox Media, along with his boundless curiosity.

Their mission: simplify food for business needs ..like a meeting or with our virtual cafeteria as a staff perk, in the most performing entreprises of Quebec province. 

The Buddha-Station virtual cafeteria relies on a well-defined business culture: daily rituals and the deep-seated values of its “bowlers.”Exciting: The work should be, but also our marketing, our food, our interactions with customers, suppliers, etc.Rebellious: Because we’re different and we take responsibility. We do more with less. We achieve the impossible.Elite: Everyone should be the world champion in their job, stay up-to-date and innovate. Then, fight to stay on top.GYSD (Get your shit done): Everyone must fulfill their responsibilities at all times.

Vision To be in 30 cities in North America within september 2023.
