What do you mean Ghost Restaurant!

Menu247 - Online Ordering System

There is a new form of restaurants in town, restaurants that have no doors, no service staff, seating or name boards. Technology seems to have taken over everything, we love it because it seems to make our lives easier. With a click of a button, you now can get everything at your doorstep within a short period of time.

order online and stop the queue

order online and stop the queue

Well, the food industry has not been left behind, the world has welcomed virtual restaurants that only exist online, where customers order online and get them delivered to them wherever they are. While this is obviously comfortable for the buyers, as they do not have to go out in search of what to eat, the food vendors also enjoy a great number of advantages.

Running a ghost restaurant means low rent and establishment costs for the sellers. They do not have to get big stores fronts where they must pay so much rent and furnish it to taste just to keep it appealing to the public. The virtual restaurant can be run anywhere and is sustainable as long as your service is top notch and your food is great and hygienic. Ghost restaurants also attract lots of customers, especially from the younger generation. They love when they can get things done fast, and especially food which is s super essential part of existence. Most of the meals sold online are relatively cheaper and larger because the restaurant owners can avoid certain cost, because of not having a physical store.

These ghost restaurant owners make use of delivery services to help them deliver orders to customers homes and offices faster. This is probably one of the few major costs they accrue, but sometimes, customers even pay for the delivery of their orders. The commitment comes from employing service staff table service and everything in between is also eliminated. At the same time, customers do not have to watch pain dry waiting for meals sitting on a table. Yes, they have to wait for their online order to be delivered, but in the comfort of wherever they are. Plus, they do not need to order when they are super hungry, they can predict when it will arrive and order ahead of time. To be honest, the evolution of the ghost restaurant is a win-win situation for both the sellers and the buyers.

Ghost restaurants have taken a plunge further to make their own mobile apps for easy accessibility to customers. Now customers can download the app and place orders with one click. Payment is done online and a waiting time is stipulated. Within this period, the delivery service brings the orders straight down to whatever location the customer inputted while placing the order. One thing that ghost restaurant owners cannot afford to compromise the quality. Customers will not hesitate to search for another online option if you do not meet their culinary needs. Feedback help these online restaurants keep track of how well they are doing too, and to identify areas where they need to improve. One thing is certain, these restaurants that have no doors have come to stay.

Menu247 is one of the new service provider in the market offering restaurant specific app with an online ordering platform. There is no middle man collecting the money. Customers pay directly to the restaurant. Not like the major food ordering apps in the market, restaurants are not competing. Serve your customer your way on your terms. Visit our website for more details about Menu247.

Is it time to replace POS System?

Are you still using an old school cash register?
Are you not happy with your current POS system or the limited features? It’s time to replace POS system.

Let’s have a look at some signs that your Retail Shop, Cafe or Restaurant telling you that it needs a new POS system.

If your POS hardware has unstable equipment such as receipt printers, kitchen printers, POS Terminals always needs attention like restarting is an indication of a possible imminent system wide failure in the near future. Or, maybe the POS system simply doesn’t seem to be running as well as it once did. Last thing you want it a screen that does not turn ON on a Saturday night and 10 people standing on the counter to settle bills. Components of your POS system can be fixed, but the cost of onsite emergency repairs and loss of business will eventually exceed the price of buying a new POS system with a peace of mind.

Reliable POS Hardware and Reliable POS Software - Replace POS System

Reliable POS Hardware and Reliable POS Software – Replace POS System

If you endure these glitches instead of investing in a new smooth POS technology, your customers continue to experience delays and difficulty in settling their bills and sees that you make lot of mistakes. You may lose their confident in your business to the establishment down the street.

May be you need additional functionality or you have outgrown your current POS system’s feature list. Today’s hospitality industry is fraught with increased competition as well as with rising labor and running costs. This makes it vital for average business to have a help-full POS system working 100% for the business. By then only it will enable you to improve per head spend, enhance customer/staff satisfaction, manage floor staff efficiently, streamlined kitchen food output and on top, accepting orders online, via mobile devices, and/or through self-service systems.

Make use of loyalty programs, Gift Vouchers will increasing diner frequency and customer retention. Not having these features when the customers wanting them will tend customer to walk to a different venue that has these features.

A good POS gives you analytical information using your sales history to reduce food costs through portion controls and inventory tracking, while minimizing labor expenditures through employee scheduling and overtime restrictions. Opting to run POS software that does not include these features and capabilities could have a negative impact on your bottom line. You don’t want to drive a car by only looking at the rear mirror, would you?

If the POS system is out of warranty, and your current POS provider is lack of responding for support, it’s time to look for a service provider who cares or comes to an agreement with a support plan. You might have developed terms with your existing POS system over the years. It is extremely difficult to handle major issues on your own when that hits the fan.

It’s always wise to practice your emergency scenarios. What would you do if the POS system goes offline on a busy Saturday night. You do your practice of emergency procedures to be used in case of fire. The feeling is mutual in both events. Have some manual order books ready and have your floor staff informed, in my opinion is not a waste of time.

Not all POS systems were made equal!

THE 5 MOST IMPORTANT THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN BUYING A POS SYSTEM (POINT OF SALE SYSTEM) in POS System Buyers Guide.

Setting up a professional Point of Sale (POS) System is one of the most important steps in creating a successful retail or hospitality business. The right system will increase your efficiency, productivity and profits. When making such an important investment for your business, it is important to take the time to carefully compare all systems available to you.In this POS System Buyers Guide, it may take a bit of extra effort now, it will be worth your while in the long run.

Why bother?
Customers appreciate prompt and accurate service, so it goes without saying that an efficient POS system will vastly increase your customers’ satisfaction and bring them back again. Not only will the right system increase business capacity, it will also make managing your business far simpler.

POS System Buyers Guide

POS System Buyers Guide

The 5 most important things to consider…
When buying your POS system, there are many factors which you need to consider. You need to discuss your individual needs with the company before making a decision, but there are some considerations that are essential, whatever your industry.

1. Price

First point of the POS System Buyers Guide is – Needless to say, price is the most obvious consideration businesses take into account when seeking a new POS system. Costs are often varied, depending on the quality and quantity of the hardware, software and support you receive. However, price should not be your main consideration when comparing POS systems. Whatever system you go with, it will easily pay for itself through decreased expenses and increased business. On the other hand, a cheap system will often drive business away, not to mention the complete lack of knowledge and support provided by discount suppliers.

Also, avoid buying second-hand systems, whatever the discount may be. Second-hand machines are already personalized for the previous owner. The equipment could be not under warranty, and it can be difficult to make it work for your own business. They also often lack the licenses, warranty and support that you receive with new registers.

In saying that, price is obviously an issue for everyone, particularly for small businesses. Purchase directly from a software developer that sells POS Hardware. Most suppliers are simply resellers and distributors, who have themselves reselling the POS software at a jacked-up price. Software developers like EzyPOS (ExSET Holdings Pty Ltd) are in the industry supplying Hardware and Software under one business. EzyPOS even is capable to customize the POS software if you have a unique requirement, which resellers can not do.

2. Quality

Second point of the POS System Buyers Guide is – At first glance, it may appear that all POS systems are more or less the same, however nothing could be further from the truth! Like anything on the market, quality varies significantly across the board. It is important that you carefully examine the company and the products before you purchase anything. Though they may be easier on the pocket now, cheaper models will only end up costing you more time and money down the track.

Of course, not every business needs a “top-of-the-line” POS System, but it is vital that you consider the quality of the products and software. For example, the cash drawers of cheaper brands can often be opened without a key, or by applying a little pressure, which … Read the rest ...

5 tips to increase venue sales

Every business wants to increase venue sale, its profit margins. After all, more profit means more money in your pocket. This is especially true for the restaurant industry where even though profit margins can be high on most items, it would not take more than a few bad days to put your company in the red. Obviously, you could always increase your prices to make more profit.

MiPOS Customer - One Fine Day

MiPOS Customer – One Fine Day

We have a feeling that this would put many people off coming through your doors, however. This could have the opposite effect to what you intended. So, we are going to share a few ways in which you can boost your sales instead.

Know your menu

It is important that your staff know your menu inside out. Train them about the products on your menu. If the customers have a question, then your team will be able to answer it for them. If the customers want a recommendation, then your team will be able to give it to them. Your waiting team should be acting like a person in any other sales job.

Enthusiasm

You need to choose staff that are enthusiastic. You need to opt for ones which are a joy to listen to. This is because they are going to be talking about the food that you have on the menu. If they can inject some excitement into their voice when they discuss it, then they are more likely to convince the customer to pick up some of the more expensive items on the menu!

Upsell

You should always be looking to upsell. Obviously, you should be doing this with drinks and the like (this is where a lot of your profit will be coming from), but you should also be doing it on your food too. For example; if a customer has decided that they want a good steak, then recommend the most expensive steak on the list. If you have a cafe-type establishment, or maybe a takeaway, then you may wish to encourage your customer to go large on their meal. The extra cost to you should not be that much here, but when you start to get a few of those people increasing the size of their meal, the extra cash coming in should start to add up quickly.

Encourage Splitting of Desserts and Starters

There is a chance that your customers will not be considering ordering either of these. If they are not, then encourage them to split the starter or dessert. After all, it is going to be better for your company’s cash-flow if you sell one rather than zero, right? It also ensures that the customer stays at your place longer. This may increase the amount of drinks that they are ordering.

Always be there for your customers

Finally; always make sure that you are there for your customers. Learn what their needs are. Have a loyalty scheme in place. Give them an incentive to keep coming back to you. It really will help when it comes to increasing your sales.

Top 5 restaurant loyalty ideas – let’s get creative

If you own a business and want to get people through the door, then a restaurant loyalty ideas is a fantastic way to do that. Of course, there are several different ways in which you can run your restaurant loyalty scheme. This is not a complete list by any stretch of the imagination, but it should get those ideas flowing.

Price-Cost-Value2 for 1 Meal Offers

If you run a restaurant or a cafe, then it is likely that you will have days of the week where you really do not have enough people coming through your doors. For example; a Tuesday night. Perhaps one of the best ways in which you can combat this is by having some 2 for 1 deals in place. You are selling a meal (obviously), but you also have 2 people coming in for some drinks where you can make some profit on it. If people were planning to go out that evening, then they are more likely to head to you than one of your competitors.

Since this is a ‘loyalty scheme’, then hand out the vouchers for this offer to patrons as they are leaving your establishment on one of the busier nights of the week (unless they have complained about your service, then maybe not)

Facebook Like or Check In

This is one of our favourite loyalty bonuses. Give people something free should they tell their social media that they are at your place. It is one of the cheapest forms of advertising you can invest in. People are more than happy to do it too (obviously, make sure that they have no complaints about your service before you encourage them to share stuff!)

MiPOS loyalty programs cards

Loyalty Cards

This is something which works well for cafes or any place where people will pick up their lunch. Have a loyalty card. The best route to go down is to pick up a POS which allows the loyalty card to be swiped through. Makes everything quick and easy. It also allows you to keep a more detailed record of customer spending. Alternatively, you can have a ‘stamp’ card in place. It is a bit more primitive, but could save you money.

One of our favourite routes to go down here is the idea of offering double loyalty points on your less busier days of the week. Again, a great way to get people coming through the door.

The loyalty points your customer receives can be used to ‘pay’ for items.

Coffee and Cake

Ideal if you run a cafe. If you have a regular person come in, then give them a voucher for coffee and cake. Easy. Chances are that when they come back in to use that voucher, they will buy some extra stuff at the same time. Hopefully coffee and cake is not going to be breaking the bank for your business!

Happy Hour

Not for alcohol! (well, you can do that if you wish). We are talking more a ‘personal happy hour’. If a customer spends a certain amount in an evening, then everything they get after that is discounted. It is a great way to encourage people to spend more with you.

Spend and Win

Not the most popular loyalty scheme in the world, but it could work. With this, spend a certain amount in the restaurant and you are entered in a prize draw to win something amazing. Simple stuff.
