25 Thank-note Examples to Thank Your Boss for Team Lunch

Below are 25 thank you note examples will help inspire you to write your boss a thank-you note for taking your team to lunch!

For more information on the when and why to thank your boss for lunch check out this post (there are tips too!).

If your lunch was with only the boss check out these examples.

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 writing your thank-you note, you will need to include an opening and closing.

I encourage you to customize them as appropriate so that they sound like they come from you!
