 San Francisco wants to end technology companys free lunch: let programmers come out to eat.


NetEase news on August 7th, according to foreign media reports, many local restaurants in San Francisco are worried that the free lunch provided by employers will not allow technical workers to eat in local restaurants. In response, two San Francisco regulators proposed that companies entering the citys new office space should not provide employees with free lunches.

There is no free lunch in the world.

In San Francisco, free internal meals have become one of the most attractive benefits provided by some technology companies for their employees, but may have damaged the interests of local restaurants.

Some catering companies and city regulators argue that the buffet provided by the company stays in the office during the meal time, making it very rare for them to visit local restaurants. This trend has prompted two San Francisco regulators, Asa Safai (AhshaSafai) and Aaron Piskiy (AaronPeskin), to propose a ban on free catering companies moving into the citys new office space.

Safai told CNBC, we are planning to build another 550 thousand square meter office space in the center of the city near the center of the city. So at this particular moment, one of the things we think about is the tax cut in the middle end market. I decided to put forward a policy to limit or completely prohibit these companies from providing free food for their employees - and, of course, I dont want to take anyones lunch. We want to encourage people to get rid of their isolated islands, leave their offices, interact extensively, and contribute to healthy cities.

Thousands of wealthy tech workers do not eat in local restaurants, but stay in their jobs for lunch, which is not the result of San Franciscos large tax concessions in the middle part of the city. However, companies offering free meals did not expect to lose some of their competitive edge in retaining top talent.

So, when you have thousands of people occupying all the real estate, and they will never leave, the office space, the number of employees, and their mode of operation are a very strange dynamic combination of the other businesses in the region. RyanCole, partner of HiNeighborGroup, said that the company owns and operates four restaurants and cafes in San Francisco. But these technology companies are very smart, and because of their own advantages, they destroy the normal business models.

It is said that the proposed ban on providing free internal food to employees in the future is insufficient, because it does not have traceability, which means that companies that have provided free lunch will not have to stop this practice.

Others believe that the act is beyond the scope of supervision and will affect technology companies to continue to enter the San Francisco area.

I appreciate this law because it wants to support local restaurants, I think its great, said the city staff Vanessa Brown (VanessaBrown), but I think its a bit too much to tell people that they cant eat in the workplace.

The solution to the controversy about free lunch has begun to emerge. For example, Twitter sometimes invites and cooks and cooks meals in its own kitchen so that employees can contact other catering businesses. In order to encourage workers to eat outside the office, Square closes the cafeteria on two Friday every month.

Catherine Jo (KatherineChiao) is the owner of a Japanese restaurant called Kagawa-YaUdon in Central China. Cole said they saw a marked improvement in business on Friday.

Its like day and night, Joe said. Friday was pretty busy, but by the time Square closed its free meal, we saw a 20% increase in our sales. San Francisco will join the ranks of the main headquarters of Alphabet, the second largest city in the bay area, and will prohibit the opening of a new duty-free office cafeteria if the proposed bill passes. I think technology companies are an extraordinary contributor to San Francisco, said Mr. But this does not mean that we cant reflect on how to strengthen some aspects of our economy and society, and encourage those who watch their business models say, maybe this is effective in Silicon Valley, but it does not work in the urban environment.
