This technology firm has developed a fully-integrated and online and mobile food-ordering solution for restaurant chains. This seamless and fully customized and branded 3rd party ordering solution processes ~ 7,000 orders per day for an estimated 500 restaurant locations owned by 100 different brands, 72% of which are POS integrated (others may use ticket printers or even facsimile). They have 1.4 million active users and 5 million unique customers have placed 10 million orders through the service. While only on monthly contracts, customers typically remain with the firm for 5 years largely due to their satisfaction with the solution whose customized development and integration includes: conversion to work with POS software and merchant processing, menu option and coupon programming, delivery service set-up and web page branding development (all of which may take up to 6 months). While the POS system had been bundled with inventory management, online ordering functionality now impacts the POS purchase decision.
This efficient organization is managed out of a small 1,000 square foot office that leases for $1,300 per month. As the business could be operated virtually it could readily be relocated.
