A recent survey from ezCater found that 67 percent of workers believe that skipping breakfast negatively affects their productivity in the workplace. Still, 60 percent of them skip breakfast two or more days per week, creating a big opportunity for employers to improve productivity by providing breakfast. With ezCater, Wawa can now reach these valuable business customers investing in food for work, the company stated.

"Our customers count on us to provide a variety of reliable caterers for all of their food for work needs, whether that's for breakfast meetings, daily employee lunches or anything in between," said Mike O'Hanlon, chief partnership officer for ezCater. "Wawa's iconic lunch staples and breakfast options like the Sizzli make them fan-favorites. We're so excited to now be able to offer Wawa Catering to ezCater customers."

The Wawa Catering menu includes a variety of breakfast, coffee and lunch items, which come individually packaged or in trays, depending on the workplace's needs.

Boston-based ezCater has more than 100,000 restaurants and caterers on its platform, from local independent restaurants to national chains. With its extensive expertise in corporate food solutions, ezCater helps its restaurant partners manage, analyze and grow their catering businesses.
