Tableservice (full-service) restaurants can take advantage of POS, ordering, and back-office technology to help increase sales as well as to reduce labor and food costs.
What influences family, casual, and fine dining restaurant sales? The NRA reports that having an easily accessible menu with the right items such as a consumer’s favorite food, new items, and items they can’t make at home is important but so is take-out and delivery options. In fact, 61 percent of adults said they would likely use delivery from a tableservice restaurant to their home or office and 54 percent would use curbside takeout.
Petrosoft solutions help family, casual, and fine dining restaurants to get their menu in the hands of potential diners and enables ordering, preparation, delivery, and cost management. Tableservice restaurants can also manage tables, tips, and tabs with the technology. These solutions help to create sales and cost-savings opportunities throughout the entire cycle of an order.
Kiosk/ordering stations are also popular in sit-down restaurants with 28 percent of adults having used this technology in 2015. These kiosks provide many of the same customization, ordering, and payment advantages as online ordering. These kiosks are also key in reducing labor costs in the front-of-the-house while integration with kitchen ordering management stations help to reduce back-of-the-house labor costs.
Petrosoft also offers a few additional features that are of importance to family, casual, and fine dining restaurants. These include a delivery driver management solution, coupon and promotions, a prep station for step-by-step order preparation instructions, and reports to track recipe costs and sales.
Although restaurants are gravitating toward technology to optimize their labor expenses, they are also feeling pressures from their customers with, according to the NRA, 23 percent selecting a tableservice restaurant based on the restaurant’s technology.
