A mobile application - a MUST for your restaurant
As we can all see, technology is advancing extremely fast. That's why many business areas have changed the way they operate. Many started using a mobile application feature to meet the needs of customers and the restaurant industry is no exception.
How using one will increase the number of customers of your restaurant?
Here are the benefits a mobile app can bring to your restaurant business:
#Keep Your Clients Informed
Before deciding which restaurant to eat at, people do their research. Before choosing a restaurant, they check the menu, customer reviews, prices and so on. With the help of a mobile application, you can give your potential customers all the information they need. Menu, prices, location, reviews, all at the touch of a screen.
#Push Notifications directly to their screen
How many times have you received a notification with a discounted product, seen the notification, entered the product and purchased it? Probably many times. Well, you can do the same with your restaurant products. For example, you can choose one day a week when you can offer a discount for a certain product, let’s say pasta. Thus, every time you have a new discounted product, customers who have downloaded the restaurant mobile application will receive a push notification on their phone, informing them about the discount.
#Mobile Ordering and Payment
We all know how valuable time is today. Because of this, if you have a restaurant and you have not implemented yet the mobile order and payment method, you should hurry to introduce it as soon as possible. It’s definitely a “must-have”. Mobile Order makes it possible to order and pay quicker and easier, customers having the opportunity to order their favorite products directly from the restaurant application.
More than the time you save, using mobile ordering you will avoid human error. This improves order accuracy and guest satisfaction. Plus, restaurant staff will spend less time taking orders over the phone, so they can focus on preparing orders or giving attention to customers who are dining in the restaurant.
Whether you want to increase your restaurant's visibility, the number of customers or you simply want to boost your digital profile, a restaurant mobile application is what you need. Even though it feels like app marketing and app development is being preached to small businesses and restaurants like crazy, 95% of restaurants didn’t have an app a year ago.
So this means if you do decide to make one now, you’ve got the potential to be one of the top 5% of restaurants in your area. Which is a pretty big deal, if you think about it.
