35 Thank You Messages for Team Lunch to Boss

Following a team lunch outing, you may want to express your gratitude to your boss with a thank you message. 

There are many examples below to give you wording ideas for saying thank you for the team lunch. 

Check out the Thank You For Lunch Messages to Boss if your lunch was with only the boss.

How To Use the Examples:

Items in brackets, such as [restaurant name], should be replaced with the actual restaurant name or whatever is indicated within the bracket.

The examples include only the body of the thank-you note. When you write your handwritten thank-you note or a thank-you email, you will need to include an opening (Dear, Hello, etc.) and a closing (Sincerely, Thanks Again, Best Regards, etc.)

I encourage you to customize the message as appropriate so that it sounds like you wrote it.
