5 Things to Grow Revenue in your F&B Business

And how you can do all all these 5 things in one go

1. Introduce a Mobile App
Mobile ordering apps have built a reputation for increasing revenue for the businesses that have introduced them. Starbucks's claim up to 30% of their revenue now comes via their Mobile App. Since launching their app Weatherspoons's revenue has grown over £50m. Both of these results are significant. Starbuck's app has been downloaded by over 20m people. Weatherspoon's app has been downloaded by over 2m people.

The evidence is clear. If you want to attract customers to your business, introducing a mobile app will attract more customers.

2. Introduce a loyalty scheme
Nearly every major food chain such as Costa and McDonalds now have some form of loyalty scheme. The reason why is clear. Offering the right discounts makes customers want to return further increasing revenues.

3. Offer Pre-Ordering
Lets face it nobody likes to queue. Allow your customers to pre-order from you, such as the ability to place an order before arriving at your store means they can save time queuing. Do that and you will et more customers.

4. Offer At-Table Ordering. 
Your customers want immediate service. Let your customers order from their tables. The minute they want that coke, let them order it. The second they want that second latte, let them order it. 

5. Offer A Delivery Service
If your customers like your product, but can't get to you, get your product to them, with a delivery service.

How A Mobile Ordering App Will Keep Your Restaurant From Closing

In 2018, for the first time in years, more restaurants closed than opened. The reason? Cost. Too many restaurants are finding it hard to keep costs down.  

With more competition out there than ever before, its getting harder to attract more customers.

So the focus is now on maximising profits. 

Which is where your own Table Mobile Ordering App comes in.

Now before we get into Mobile Apps, lets do a simple "Thought Experiment".

How many trips to a table does a waiter need to make for a single course meal? Well the waiter first has to take the menu, they then return to take the order, one more trip to take the food, another to clear the table, yet another when called over to be asked to pay the bill, another trip when they take the bill and finally many waiters make a final trip to take payment when the customer has indicated they are ready to pay. That is a staggering 7 trips per table! 

Now let us think about this same waiter and how he would operate if his customer placed the ord…

The Future Of Taking Food and Drink Orders

Imagine the scene, there you are, in your shop and a customer walks in. She looks like she is in a rush. As she approaches, you take a quick glance across your shop, it's busy. There is a hum, the hum that comes from when you are over 75% full, it's the sound of customers chattering, the sound reverberates gently over your ears.

Your waitresses and waiters chat with your customers, orders are taken, but your waitresses continue to talk to your customers, why wouldn't they, the orders are beamed from the table, digital packets of light, direct to the kitchen, where the chef sees them, printed effortlessly at the pass and he instantly prepares them.

A split second later, you hear the sound from your kitchen as your chef calls "Service" and Sally your head waitress diverts, collects and takes the order, a dish that is made from the freshest of ingredients, delighting your senses as it waves in Sally's hands on it's approach to your customer at Table-10 who …
