Recently app usage for restaurants has exploded with a high percentage of orders for delivery coming through apps on iPhones and iPads. Younger users prefer the no fuss interface of ordering through an app allowing for quick efficient orders with no mistakes commonly occurring with orders over the phone. iPhone/
Smart phone usage stats are up and widely used for ordering. Here are some amazing stats: In the age group of 18 to 34 (prime for delivery orders) 74% of smart phone users used their phone to order takeout or delivery, 85% of people in the USA have a mobile phone and take them everywhere, iPhone users spend 4 times as much as Android users, 95% of smart phone users use their phones to look for local information and 88% take action the same day. As a huge marketing note Smart Phones are always with the customer, always on and always connected.
Many restaurants now are using large online/app companies offering menus and ordering services such as GrubHub. These are excellent services to locate a restaurant and bring in new customers. But after the initial interaction customers keep returning, using these services to order and customers don’t even know how GrubHub makes money. Restaurants are required to pay high transactions fees in many cases ranging from 10% to 15%. Creating a custom app for online orders allows restaurant to keep the business in their system offering many benefits including: ordering in their system, more customer interaction, saving on transaction fees, enabling push notifications to keep customers coming back often, customer convenience, real menu pictures that inspire larger orders, reservations, maps and locations all on one app.
Push Notifications are one of the best ways to directly interact with customers quickly and efficiently. Push Notifications are read by their users an amazing 97% of the time. This is the most effective way for small restaurants to capture the attention of their customers.
