Food delivery and carry-out services are two rapidly growing segments of the current restaurant industry. Here in the United States, consumers order takeout or delivery at least one time a week. A growing reliance on convenience and quick service has created a new boom in food delivery services like curbside pickup and now no-contact delivery. The pandemic is starting to wind down here in the United States, but delivery services for restaurants are still a valuable supplement revenue stream. If you’re interested in improving your delivery services, read on to learn more!
Designate an Area for Delivery
By designating an area for your delivery drivers to pick up new orders, you help them bypass a long line of waiting customers and increase their overall efficiency. This space could also be used as a carry-out space for customers picking up their food. If you would like to be even more efficient than that, create a space for employees to package delivery and takeout orders. Create a takeout station checkout station for customers who didn’t pay over the phone or on your website.
Stock Up on Delivery Supplies
Make sure to stock up heavily on takeout containers, napkins, utensils, smallware, cups, lids, pizza boxes, condiments, food delivery bags, and sauce packets so your staff will never run out of the items they need to complete an order. All of these food supplies are available in bulk at H.C. Walterhoefer, so come in today to ensure you never run out!
Make a New Delivery Menu
Creating a separate delivery menu can help simplify preparation and packaging for your entire staff. Start off by picking from some of your most adored menu items. Avoid any foods that get too soggy or melt after they’re placed in sealed carry-out containers. Also, ask your entire staff which meals or sides they think would be solid additions to the delivery menu.
Make Updates to Restaurant Technology
Online ordering makes it a lot easier for guests to view your menu, place orders, and pay for services. This eliminates the need for taking orders by phone, which can be time-consuming and lead to careless mistakes in the food ordering process. Try updating your food ordering technology. It will save you plenty of time and money in the long run!
