Questions and Answers
Once you are registered to supply a school(s), we will help you with uploading your menu and pricing. You set up your labelwriter (or printer) and we have an online call to show you through the system. We will provide the school with advertising. Families at the school will see your lunch menu online, place orders and pay online. You can download your production list and packing labels at 9am every morning, then make, package and deliver lunches to the school. No distributing menus and forms, counting coins or tallying orders – ezlunch will do that for you online! You will be paid in one lump sum into your account each week.
Get in touch through our contact form. You can tell us if there are any local schools that you would like to serve, and that are within a reasonable distance of your kitchen for delivery. There’s a contract to sign ensuring we’re both clear on responsibilities. It's that simple!
Absolutely! If the school is interested, let us know. We’ll then be in touch with the school to get the final set up completed.
1. A computer with internet access
2. A printer (for printing the Production List on A4 paper)
3. Dymo Labelwriter 450 or Label Sheets (these will be specified by ezlunch, and you will be given details that will allow you to re-order).
We have looked at all costs carefully, to ensure this service is as cheap for you to run as we can make it. The Dymo Labelwriter 450 is small, reliable, inexpensive but best of all... they never need ink... saving you a lot of money.
Ezlunch will retain 12% of the revenue earned from the sale of food. You will need to ensure that your prices will cover this percentage, and your other costs, including the costs of the labels (these are approximately 9c each).
Unlike other online school lunch platforms, we offer highly commended helpdesk support, marketing material to schools to promote your service, regular promotions, reminder emails to schools and families and we’ll liaise with the schools so you can focus on your core business of making great school lunches!
If your school does not order enough lunches, despite your best efforts, you may ask to cease the agreement with that school. You will be expected to finish out the term or give four weeks’ notice per the contract.
Give us a call and we'll get your account and the school account set up for you. We will also contact you if we have other local schools wanting ezlunch to see if you are available to supply to them.
When your account is set up, we will give you a login and password and you can choose to either set up your menu yourself or we’ll do this for you!
It is up to you to manage your own stock levels. You can set “stock” levels for your menu items if stock is getting low. This will automatically close off orders for that item when the stock level is reached. Set stock to zero if none of the item is available.
By 2023 all ezlunch suppliers will need to ensure their packaging is environmentally friendly and/or meets the requirements of the Enviroschools you supply to.
You will be paid directly into your bank account for deliveries made the week prior. On Friday you will receive an invoice detailing this. This will include all earnings from the sale of food, less our percentage and any fundraising percentage to go to the school.
