With social distancing rules and restrictions on eating out to stop COVID-19, food retailers are now forced to change their business model to maintain a living. Restaurants turning into market stalls and bakeries and bars have turned to home delivery of food, drink packs and cocktails. They are turning to online ordering apps to increase their cash flow. This will now be the future trend to survive COVID-19 to keep up with your customer’s demands.
It’s important to stay tuned to your customer’s needs and wants from an online ordering service. The number one priority for food retailers should be to create a takeaway and delivery model that is user friendly for everyone. Customers would love to have your branded app in their pocket to make ordering easy. You can offer them a loyalty reward system for supporting your business for food and drink orders and push notifications with any changes you make. Your customers get to create their own personal accounts with you and your business and you can then use them for future marketing.
It’s a whole new world we are living in and we need to innovate with it. The benefits for any Food Retailer to have an online app ordering system in place are many, but because of COVID -19, an online ordering app is more important than ever. It’s what’s going to make your business cash flow stabilise and improve during these times, so you can provide for yourself and your family. Thinking outside the box now will also set you up for the future.
Flexibility is one of the more significant benefits of having a mobile app and that is very important to everyone and especially now with COVID-19. Because with a mobile app, the ordering experience is easier for customers and for you as a business owner.
There are a few of the benefits that your own branded app can give you. We think, doing an app for home delivery and pick up will save you money. No overheads like Uber Eat or Deliveroo to take all your profits and the costly monthly fee for their delivery services. You will put all your money back into your business, you are in control.
