From the gastronomy for the gastronomy The Swiss Lunch-Check cooperative was founded in 1961 by Zurich restaurateurs. The idea behind it is to increase turnover in the catering trade at the lowest possible cost to cardholders.
Employee appreciation made easy Bontique strives to make employee appreciation easier for businesses with its core product – the Bontique-Check. Bontique-Checks serve as vouchers, which can be redeemed by the recipient at a wide selection of partners throughout Switzerland.
Inexpensive alternative to staff restaurants The Lunch-Check gift card works on the same principle. The gift card offers the recipient a choice of over 8000 Swiss restaurants. This offers companies in particular the opportunity to provide their employees with a monthly budget for lunch and business lunches via Lunch-Check, which can be redeemed at almost any restaurant.
Quick help in times of crisis Since the beginning of the corona pandemic, Lunch-Check has constantly endeavoured to support the Swiss gastronomic landscape in various ways. Restaurants have therefore been able to make donations via Lunch-Check. In order to support local gastronomy, virtual meals were held where participants could organise local meals using Lunch-Check credit, and local gift cards were developed in cooperation with various cantonal gastronomy associations.
Joint growth „We have a very cooperative relationship with Bontique. Although Bontique is in the same segment as us in the area of employee gifts, we do not see ourselves as competitors, but rather try to grow together and further develop our offering,“ says Manuela Gehrig, CMO at Lunch-Check. For 2022, Lunch-Check has also decided to give employees Bontique Checks as birthday gifts. „This way, employees have the opportunity to decide for themselves what they want to give as a gift.“
Lunch with just a few clicks If employees receive a Bontique-Check from their company for various events, this can be quickly and easily converted online into a Lunch-Check credit. „With Bontique, we can offer our existing customers a convenient way to top up their Lunch-Check card and at the same time raise our own profi le with new customers.“
