FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Statistics Prove Restaurant Online Ordering is a Crucial Source of Revenue
Restaurant online ordering is here to stay and with good reason. Restaurants that offer online ordering are seeing an increase in both ticket size and customer base.
So which types of restaurants do better with online ordering? It is what you would expect. Restaurants typically associated with takeout such as Pizzerias, Delis and Chinese do the best. However, any food establishment that offers a takeout menu does almost equally as well.
The key is demographics. The old adage about location, location, location, certainly holds true when it comes to online ordering. Corporate parks lead the pack with lunchtime orders far exceeding all other forms of ordering. Other great revenue sources are dinner time in residential areas and anytime in college campus surroundings.
So how many orders does the typical restaurant get? The range is 2 to 50 orders per day with the average being 5 to 15 orders per day.
Renewal rates are near 100%.
These numbers demonstrate that online ordering for restaurants has become an essential sales tool in the Internet era that pays for itself very quickly. The day has arrived whereby taking online orders is equally important as taking phone orders.
BigHoller provides restaurants with the capability of offering online ordering from their own website. BigHoller restaurants are growing their customer base and increasing their takeout revenue by offering customers the convenience of online ordering.
