The results are in, JD Wetherspoon's profits jump 36%


So JD Weatherspoons recently implemented their mobile app in 2017. As they did the industry waited with baited breath. Would it work? Would it be a gimmick. Would customers really use it.

Well, 2 years later here we are.

  • £2m downloads
  • 36% jump in profits
  • Over £30m increase in sales
Emphatically it worked! 

Mobile Ordering Apps are here, and they are here to stay. So what has the Weatherspoons mobile app shown us.

  1. Customers prefer to avoid queues and will use the app in-stead
  2. The app in itself is a great way to attract new customers
  3. Table Service ordering is very popular
  4. The app saves money, serving customers can be upto 80% faster when a customer orders via an app than when they walk up to the bar and order direct
  5. Customers using a mobile app are more likely o return

But, implementing a custom made mobile app is surely too expensive for most businesses?

Actually, at ORDRWare we specialise in implementing Custom Mobile Ordering Apps, with all the features you will need without the typically associated high cost. With ORDRWarewe make it really easy.

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 …
