Restaurant Hacks this Winter! How to Capitalise on the Lead into Christmas!

Shorter days and longer nights, day to day interactions with your customers are changing– especially with the COVID-19 crisis making indoor dining all that much harder.

Restaurants and fast food outlets have started to digitize their service by offering contactless delivery, mobile ordering and click and collect. But, how will small businesses that don’t have the budget for big agencies and app development capitalise on digitizing their customer experience during winter?

Good News! Online ordering from restaurants is increasing and it’s never been easier to start accepting online orders and to start serving your customers directly at their home. Third-Party apps like Just Eat and Deliveroo make delivery easy but tend to cut into your profits. So, what’s a restaurant to do?

Here are some ways restaurants can serve more customers and increase their margins:

  1. Get Your Brand on Front of People

Maybe throw in a free item or give extra points for someone who calls your premises directly to place an order and pays you directly! Your customer is happy with the extra reward, you increase your margins and everyone is happy!

  1. Increase Repeat Orders
