At Proper Food, we make it a cinch to eat well on the run.  We craft our fare by hand fresh every morning the only way we know how – with fresh, whole ingredients sliced, chopped and seasoned with care.  Nothing phony or factory-made. Just good, proper fare that’s packed and ready to go.

We opened the doors to our first store in San Francisco in 2014, and have quickly grown to nine locations in SF. Now, we are bringing our fresh, honest fare to NYC. We’ve got big plans to bring Proper Food to people everywhere.  Join us on our mission to reinvent fast food.

Our Values

Our values shape everything we do, from how we source our ingredients to the ways we care for customers, communities and one another.

Eat well & good
Our food is real food – all natural, sustainably sourced and full of flavor. We follow seasons, not trends. We keep things fresh by regularly introducing new items and saying so long (for now) to others.
Focus on the details, consistently
Every Proper Food experience is made up of dozens of tiny impressions. We’re fanatical about making sure everything tastes, looks and works the way it should. Every. Single. Time.
Trust the Chef
Our Chef perfects each entrée for you by carefully selecting each and every ingredient for the perfect balance of flavors.
Own our humanness
Mistakes happen. When we goof, we own it, fix it and grow from it.
Delight in delighting
A smile goes a long way. We know personal connections — even the briefest interaction — can make a positive difference in someone’s day.
Keep it real
We are open, honest and straightforward — a team that works together with trust and respect. We each do our part. If we see something that needs doing, we roll up our sleeves and get it done. Our passion is authentic. We get joy out of what we do and it s
Do everything with care
Our food, our community, our people. We put great care into everything we do.
