Are You Prepared for the Takeout / Delivery Economy?

While your current POS may be fine for dine-in (keep it for that), it will destroy any chance you have at becoming a player in the take-out / delivery economy.

Dateline: March 2020

Restaurants Must Adapt

Restaurants are operating as they always have. Some relying on table service, others already embracing Off-Premise Service.

March 15, 2020

Global pandemic strikes. Every restaurant in the country is forced to close its dining rooms. For some restaurants, table service is their only lifeblood.

Takeout/delivery is the name of the game. Restaurants who traditionally operate off-premise are now thriving.

Now

The future is uncertain. Even when dining rooms open, there will be restrictive capacity limits. The economy will slowly re-open, and those equipped to service off-premise will continue to dominate.

Why?

The Takeout / Delivery economy is Right Now and here to stay

Pick-up and delivery is no longer a side-hustle for restaurants, it is now the price of admission to stay in the game at all. In the Takeout/Delivery Economy there will be winners. And there will be losers.

The Winners

Restaurants whos operational DNA is off-premise have been booming. Why? They were prepared. Pick-up and delivery are in their DNA. They are growing market share as you read this. (Just look at Domino’s stock price).

The Losers

Dine-in restaurants. Those who think what got them to January 2020, will take them into the future... will be skinned alive in the coming months.

The Pivot

Pizzerias have relied on Off-Premise-Stations (OPS) for decades. This is the technology that determines:

• When specific items should go in the oven
• What side-items and utensils NEED to be included
• The most efficient delivery route

In short… how to get a fresh, tasty meal to your customer when they’re dining at home. Screw this up and they won’t order again.

Your Business Is Under Attack From All Angles

The Pandemic Isn't Your Only Enemy

Processing Fees

Processing Fees Are Bleeding Your Business Dry

Merchants like you have become unwilling participants in the processing wars. Nearly all cards compete to attract consumers with the “Highest Return Rewards Cards.” Consumers are gobbling them up. After all, everyone wants 4% cash-back, free vacations, free concerts, and free airline travel. Guess what. YOU are footing the bill. YOU are paying the 4% cash-back. YOU are paying for all the vacations and perks. Your fees are entirely out of your control and they are only going higher.

Third-Party Ordering

Third-Party Ordering Companies Are Taking Your Customers To Your Competition

In a burning theater, why do people instinctively follow everyone to the front door when there is an exit only 3 feet to their right? When under extreme stress, humans assume the crowd knows best and follow without really giving it any thought. This is the dynamic in play right now as restaurants jump on GrubHub, DoorDash, and other 3rd party ordering systems.
