Restaurant executives are overlooking a simple way to increase their off premise sales while improving their guest experience.
Restaurants these days have so much going on that they can die a death of a thousand cuts. One way for restaurants to avoid this is by focusing on their core competencies and outsourcing the things that are not their strength.
Restaurants should focus on providing an exceptional customer experience and making amazing food. One function that has been hurting restaurants is phone “to go” orders. What is happening is restaurants try to handle this function internally and they end up loosing a great deal of money in the process.
Restaurants experience spikes in call volume during lunch and dinner and in result the phone starts to ring off the hook. Every missed phone order is a missed business opportunity or missed sales. Some restaurants have thousands of missed phone orders per year and have no idea about it.
On top of that even if a restaurant answers the phone, often the customer experience is terrible. The in house employee’s are multi tasking and can be in a unfriendly mood. Those employees also don’t have skin in the game and aren’t financially incentivized to up-sell on phone orders.
So besides missed phone orders the average takeout order size isn’t living up to its full potential.
One way restaurant chains are increasing their profits and improving their guest experience is by partnering with a centralized restaurant call center.
The question always remains, how do restaurant executives keep up with the evolving market— off premise and dining-in guest experience?
