helping restaurants survive covid

The current lockdown may end on December 2nd, but for the foreseable future, the way you do business and consumer habits are going to be affected.

In March we helped a restaurant in Kent add a takeaway service to their restaurant as Boris announced the first COVID lockdown.

Since then, they’ve done phenomenally well with it

how a takeaway service on your website will help you

People still don’t want to cook. They still want the choice. They still want to support YOU!

Why not let them, and make it easy in the process?

Easy to Access and Use

Simple & Secure Payment Process

Happy Customers, Happy Restaurant

There is nothing more frustrating when trying to order food than a busy phone line. This solves that. Your site will be able to process as many orders as you can handle.

With less time spent answering the phones and a smoother collection process due to the payments already taken, your staff can focus on things that actually require their attention – whether that’s cooking the meals or preparing for the collection to keep customers satisfied.

Customers will be able to view your menu, adding their choices to the basket.

Once they’ve finalised their selections, they’ll go to checkout where they will select a date and time that you’ve confirmed you’ll be open and able to accept the order.

No need to worry about a customer ordering and then not showing up. They will have paid for the order in advance online.

Once they’ve paid for their order, both you and the customer will receive an emailed order confirmation.

You’ll be able to specify the collection times available to suit your schedule, the number of orders that can occur in that time slot and you’ll be able to set a minimum time period for orders to be fulfilled.

So if you know orders generally take you 30 minutes to fulfil, and a customer orders at 5:55pm, the first available slot for them will be 6:25pm.

Your customer can just turn up, be handed their food and leave. No hanging around waiting for a card reader to become available.

Marketing Opportunities 

Keep them coming back. With each order, you can collect email addresses and order data to personally retarget customers with timely emails encouraging them to return – whether that’s in person (once allowed) or for another takeaway.

If you wanted to go further and explore social media ads, previous site visitors (or further narrowed down to actual customers) can be retargeted in their social feeds.

The Offer

We are still putting the full package together and determining the price, which we’ll communicate to you as quickly as possible, but we expect it to be in the region of £40-50 per month for the software and hosting of the website. The more restaurants that sign up the cheaper the software licensing becomes which we can pass on to you.

We are also prepared to waive a significant chunk of our own time costs in actually getting the site set-up, including loading all of your data onto the site.

We will be working on a first-come, first-serve basis so please do register your interest below. This is not a commitment to purchase anything, it is just letting us know you’re interested. We are aware of the timing and would look to turn this around as soon as possible (within a week or two) if the interest is there.

  • Only if you already have a website or domain name.
