It is a boon for the working woman. For bachelors it offers the luxury of timely lunch in the comfort of their office dining hall instead of a crowded restaurant. The Green’s Lunch Box is being launched on April 25. The modern Dabbawala will service the meal in a hot pack with four compartments for Rs 75. The contents are standard — three phulkas (or two chappatis), curry, flavoured rice and curd rice.

Woman entrepreneur Srilakshmi Yadvalli who is launching the service said ‘The Lunch Box’ was meant for executives who do not have the time and the elderly and others who do not relish hotel food.

“The Lunch Box with homely hot lunch will be delivered at your office table at 1 p.m. and the empty hot pack will be collected at around 3 p.m.,” she said. The curry and flavoured rice would be changed from time to time.

Those interested in taking the lunch box will have to order in advance. The marketing staff say as an introductory offer lunch would be served even if the order was given the same morning (before 10 a.m.).

But gradually the customers will be given coupons for a minimum of 15 days. If for some reason the person does not attend office on a day the service provider should be informed in advance.

Those taking The Lunch Box regularly can order for their friends. “The friends of those who are getting Lunch Box regularly can use these coupons and enjoy the service,” explained Sarat Chandra, partner and husband of Ms Srilakshmi.

The meals will be served only against coupons purchased in advance. This kind of service was being provided for the first time in the Telugu states, he claimed.

LIC employee N Y V Vijayalakhmi says Lunch Box will be particularly convenient for working women. “Preparing lunch in the morning, carrying the box and then carrying the box back can be avoided if we order The Lunch Box,” she says.

Those interested can also place an order on email –greenslunchbox@gmail.comor by calling 7382256666.
