People are returning to offices, and students are back in school. Activities outside the house have driven the return of the lunch rush for restaurants. And not just lunch, sales during breakfast and morning snack dayparts have also been growing.
This trend can be a great thing for restaurants that are prepared to take advantage of these consumers-on-the-go that are looking for convenience. According to The NPD Group, lunch visitors will grow by double-digits from 2021-2024.
First, restaurants need to have an affordable solution for delivery. Bloomberg research shows that 50% of American consumers have ordered delivery. Most restaurants have embraced the need for delivery but aren’t happy with dealing with a 3rd party delivery company because of the cost + giving up valuable customer data + sacrificing their online brand.
Second, it’s time to implement a seamless curbside experience so it’s easy for staff to meet the needs of these in-a-rush customers. Customers want to have more choices than sitting in a too-long drive-thru line just to settle for fast food. They also don’t have time to pull into a parking space and call the restaurant to say they’ve arrived just so they can sit and wait for their food.
There is an affordable, easy to implement solution with an attractive UI that can meet these two important needs. SWIPEBY has built our restaurant platform with operators’ needs in mind for seamless curbside and no-commission delivery. And, our implementation is quick.
