Online Ordering must-have for competitive grow
Online ordering services exciting new revenue opportunities for us. However, with increased competition in online ordering for restaurants, consumers now have more options for placing orders.
Many restaurant operators are opening virtual kitchens, leveraging existing staff and equipment, to grow revenue without adding substantially more costs. We very carefully select locations for the development of our project.
The Secret Sauce
Grits in DC saw an opportunity to leverage existing kitchen space and labor by adding a Virtual Kitchen but it lacked the data it needed to design a profitable menu, as well as the technology to aggregate and streamline orders from major online ordering services.
KitchenHub helped Grits identify top-selling menu items that perform well for online ordering. By leveraging KitchenHub's online ordering aggregation technology, Grits was able to cost-efficiently reach new customers with a differentiated online menu, without increasing its staff, kitchen space, or marketing budget.
Grits aims to match the quality of the food with exceptional delivery operations. And the virtual kitchen needs tech that can handle the complexities of its unique business model.
