7 Office Kitchens Guaranteed To Make You Jealous

0

How many hours do you work a week? Whether it’s 30 or 70, we can all agree that having a fresh, inspiring, and nurturing environment makes all the difference. Especially a clean, bright, and stocked kitchen! At the small girls empowerment nonprofit where I work, we definitely don’t have unlimited free snacks, candy bars, or beers in our office fridge like the workplaces below, but our walls are painted pink and lavender and we try our best to pitch in to keep the kitchen tidy and dishes washed. Having a great workplace kitchen also fosters a sense of community and if you’re lucky enough to have a cafeteria in yours, it makes for an excellent gathering place to break bread and develop ideas. A fro-yo machine is brain food, right?

Google first sparked attention to the office perks scene and is still a leader today in the amazing employee experience and benefits, including food, it offers. Below, find seven offices with creative, motivating, and beautiful kitchens.
