Takeaway season, winter, regional lockdowns? What does the rest of 2020 look like?
Throughout the spring and summer of 2020, the lockdown was especially challenging for the restaurant and takeaway industry. In many cases there was a sudden rush for businesses to quickly change their services to suit the new restrictions.
As a restaurant you became an important part of your local community and the need to expand beyond the traditional dine-in and takeout offering for your customers was never more obvious.
As we draw closer to winter, and localised restrictions are implemented, we want to know….Is your business ready?
Here are 4 ways we recommend to increase your business in a potential future lockdown:
- Delivery: Make sure your customers know that you are open for business and can deliver to their door safely.
- Contactless service: Establish a sense of security for your customers by offering them a contactless service with online payments and doorstep drop-offs.
- Communication: Let your customers know that you’re open for business and are taking the necessary precautions.
- Increase direct business: Many businesses remain heavily reliant on food portals. Having your own online ordering platform is critical in being able to know your customers and communicate directly with them.
At OrderYOYO we understand the importance of restaurants and takeaway partners providing their valuable customers with easy, convenient and safe ways to order direct and during lockdown we supported over 2,500 restaurants partners in the UK and Ireland.
