Best Online Ordering for Restaurants

Takeout Rocket provides what it feels is the best online ordering for restaurants based on its low monthly cost and the exceptional features. Some online software companies charge a low monthly price, but offer very few features or charge extra for each feature a restaurant needs to properly offer online ordering for its customers. We have seen some of our other competitors offer premium features similar to ours, but they charge 15 to 30% of each order, essentially becoming a silent partner. Some of our competitors don’t even assist restaurants with marketing or promotion, and some that do, charge extra for those services or only promote discount deals, costing the restaurant even more in lost revenue. OUCH ! ! !

Ordering food from a restaurant online

Takeout Rocket understands not all restaurants are the same when it comes to takeout ordering. Each restaurant has specific needs, but they all share a few basic characteristics that we learned from listening to our existing and potential restaurant clients. We know that in order to offer the best online ordering for restaurants, we needed to provide software solutions that provided superior service at an affordable price. After all the most successful restaurants do just that, they have great food at affordable prices.

Takeout Rocket provides the best pricing and service possible to restaurants large and small. Most small business owners have seen their fair share of ups and downs, and by providing them options and solutions, it makes their job easier and less stressful. We take the mystery out of the whole process and keep it simple.

Here’s our key to the best online ordering for restaurants:

►           Cost savings to the Restaurant using a flat monthly rate ($49.99 or $29.99 plan)

►           Ease of use for the Restaurant and Customer (Android/Apple/Desktop/Laptop/Tablet)

►           Free social media to help increase takeout orders and even dining in orders from new and existing Customers of your Restaurant 

Cost Savings

Restaurants Save Money with Takeout Rocket

Some of our competitors charge restaurants a percentage of the order, which is quite expensive when you consider some restaurants work with very low profit margins of 20 to 30%. Our competitors that charge based on a percentage are taking a big bite out of the profits of restaurants. The service they are providing really isn’t worth a 15 to 30% cut?  We know of other competitors that are charging a flat rate of $200 or more per month to be on desktop, Android and Apple platforms, and they offer no marketing or social media promotion for the restaurant. Not only does Takeout Rocket offer similar if not better features than most of its competitors, but it offers those features at a fraction of what most of our competitors are charging. We will go that extra mile to convince restaurants that Takeout Rocket is the best online ordering for restaurants.

Takeout Rocket Decreases a Restaurant’s Costs for Takeout Ordering

Once we saw how much our competitors were charging restaurants we saw a tremendous opportunity to provide the best online ordering for restaurants and significantly reduce their monthly takeout ordering costs. There is no need to charge 15% to 30% like some of our competitors. We decided to charge a flat rate of $49.99 per month which requires the restaurant to have their takeout credit card processing go through our designated processor. We also offer an even lower rate of $29.99 per month if the restaurant agrees to put all their credit card processing through our designated processor. Our two bundled pricing plans apply to all restaurants whether they are cafes, bistros, diners, fine dining, full-service restaurants (FSRs), fast casual or quick-service restaurants (QSRs). If you are one location, or multi-location, no problem, give us a call. If you want to integrate our software with your POS system, no problem either, we’re happy to help.

Our Numbers Speak for Themselves

With great features and huge costs savings, Takeout Rocket is the best online ordering for restaurants.

Example 1 If a restaurant is paying 15% per order and doing $4,000 per month in takeout ordering, they are paying $600 per month (plus credit card processing costs), so with the $49.95 Standard Plan, Takeout Rocket would be saving the restaurant $550 per month or close to $6,600 per year, which is a huge savings.

Example 2: Obviously, the more takeout volume a restaurant does the more they are saving. If a restaurant is paying 15% per order and doing $12,000 per month in takeout ordering they are paying $1,800 per month (plus credit card processing costs), so with the $49.95 plan Takeout Rocket would be saving the restaurant $1,750 per month or over $21,000 per year, which is a tremendous cost saving benefit and improvement to net profit.

Easy to Use Software and Mobile Apps

We keep it simple, that’s what we do. Keeping not only the restaurant in mind, but also the restaurant’s customers, we made sure our online ordering system for restaurants was easy to use and could be used by customers whether they were at work on their desktop, at home on their laptop or tablet, or even if they were on the go and needed to place an order on their iPhone or Android smart phone.

Free Social Media and Promotional Materials to Help Increase Takeout Orders

Many of our restaurant clients just don’t have the time or skills to effectively use social media effectively.  Well we do, and not only that, but we provide social media marketing efforts as well as in-store promotional materials, at no additional cost as part of our two monthly plans. Does your current online ordering provider give you hundreds of social media posts with pictures of your food and restaurant, well we do, and we do it monthly. That’s just one other reason why Takeout Rocket provides the best online ordering for restaurants.

Our team works closely with restaurants to give them the personal attention they need.  We want every restaurant we work with, large or small, not only to succeed and grow their business, but also to reduce their online takeout ordering costs. Takeout Rocket’s goal is to help restaurants decrease their costs for takeout ordering and help them to increase the number of takeout orders they do each month. The Takeout Rocket team works hard to ensure its takeout ordering software for restaurants is the best in its class.

Running a restaurant is not easy and roughly 60 percent of new restaurants fail within three years or less. Applying strong business principles can help a restaurant succeed. Securing a good location at reasonable rates; hiring, training and motivating staff; and effective marketing are all part of a successful restaurant strategy. Ultimately, the key factor in success is maintaining an average-or-better profit margin year after year. Full-service restaurants spend about 32 percent of each dollar on the cost of food and beverages, 33 percent on salaries and wages, and from 5 percent to 6 percent on restaurant occupancy costs. Profit margins, however, varied according to the cost of the average check per person. Restaurants that pay 10% or more to an online service like GrubHub or Seamless are giving up a significant amount of their net profit margin, basically taking on a silent partner that doesn’t take on the daily risks and responsibilities of running a restaurant. 

Increase the Number of Takeout Orders

While we can’t guarantee a restaurant will increase the number of its takeout orders, we do include social media marketing at no additional cost. In order to be viewed as the best online ordering for restaurants, we felt we had to include marketing to help restaurants get more orders. Fortunately, we helped develop a proprietary social media tool with some colleagues to promote businesses on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.  

Just give us a little inspiration on what you would like the posts to say or what you would like to promote and the Takeout Rocket team will do the rest. No need for the restaurant to lift a finger for social media marketing, but you should still check social media to thank customers who provide glowing comments about your restaurant, and also you should promptly and professional respond to customer complaints. Great service is what makes us the best online ordering for restaurants.
