Who?

Meican’s digital dining experience

Meican is a Beijing-based venture offering digital food solutions to corporate clients across the country. This is Sodexo Ventures’s second investment in China, after Aeye-Go in November 2018. This new partnership represents a unique opportunity for Sodexo to re-invent its food offer and accelerate growth in the APAC region, and for Meican to access international markets.

Meican offers:

  • A streamlined consumer experience: a digital Self Ordering platform that makes it easy for consumers to order from on-site as well as off-site restaurants; and a Smart Waiter solution that keeps orders warm for more convenient pick-up while minimizing delivery traffic and wait times.
  • An enriched on-site offer: the Meican Zone is a physical food court that diversifies the on-site food offer while giving partner restaurants close proximity to the employee consumer base. Partner restaurants also have the option of producing orders for deliveries to off-site consumers.
  • Access to a large network of off-site restaurants: the same Self Ordering platform give consumers access to a network of over 10,000 off-site restaurants via delivery. Wherever consumers choose to enjoy their meal – on-site in the Meican Zone or via delivery from an offsite restaurant – the consumer benefits from their employee subsidy.

Why?

“Meican’s team has impressed us by their level of innovation, consumer-centric approach and speed of deployment.”

The Asian-Pacific region is one of Sodexo’s key markets. It’s an epicenter for innovation, driven by continuously changing consumer habits, and featuring a dynamic ecosystem of food-industry startups. Sodexo-Ventures has chosen to partner with Meican because it understands the great potential for the delivery market in the region.

What?

A truly differentiating food offer

By partnering with Meican, Sodexo-Ventures is helping Sodexo build a new and truly differentiating food offer that complements its current business model and enriches the consumer experience. Meican’s proprietary technology and large network of affiliated brands mean that it’s in a unique position to offer on-site as well as off-site digital dining and delivery solutions.

“Meican welcomes this partnership with Sodexo. We’re convinced we’ll be able to leverage the synergies between our complementarity business models.”
