There are a number of choices when looking for an online ordering system for restaurants. Unfortunately, most either charge the restaurant a high percentage of each order or they quote a low rate that provides very little unless you upgrade and pay additional fees for features that should have been included in the first place.
That’s why at Takeout Rocket we provide a very simple pricing model with no gimmicks. In addition, we feel we have what is the best online ordering system for restaurants available. Our two pricing plans include web, Apple and Android ordering. This gives your existing and new customers the ability to not only order from home on their desktop or laptop, but they can also order from iPhone or Android smart phones if they are out on the go or working late.
Our team works closely with our restaurant clients to give them the personal attention they need. We want them to succeed and grow their business. One way to do that is we decrease their costs for takeout ordering and help them to increase the number of takeout orders they do each month.
Decrease Costs for Takeout Ordering
This was easy. Once we saw how much our competitors were charging restaurants we saw a tremendous opportunity to help restaurants save money. 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.
Increase the Number of Takeout Orders
While we can’t guarantee a restaurant will increase the number of its takeout orders, we do include in our two monthly plans social media marketing. We helped develop a social media tool to promote businesses on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram. So our monthly plans include at least 100 social media posts to promote your restaurant using one or more of these social media platforms. No need for the restaurant to lift a finger to post. With our online ordering system for restaurants, we do all the posting for you. 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.
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 maximize the success of our online ordering system for restaurants, we needed to shape our solutions in a way that provides a superior service at an affordable price.
Our main focus is on providing 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 work day a bit easier. We take the mystery out of the whole process and keep it simple.
Our key to the best online ordering system 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
We knew there was a real need for a better online ordering system for restaurants at a reasonable price so we came up with a simple pricing plan.
Takeout Rocket standard plan costs $49.99 per month, plus credit card processing fees on takeout orders. We also have a premium plan which costs $29.99 per month plan for restaurants if they put all their credit card processing (takeout and dine-in) through Takeout Rocket’s designated processor. The savings to a restaurant are very significant, as you can see in the examples below.
Saving Money with our Online Ordering System for Restaurants
These two plans apply to all restaurants whether they are 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.
Example 1: If a restaurant is paying 15% per order and doing $3,000 per month in takeout ordering, they are paying $450 per month (plus credit card processing costs), so with the $49.95 plan Takeout Rocket would be saving the restaurant $400 per month or close to $5,000 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 $10,000 per month in takeout ordering they are paying $1,500 per month (plus credit card processing costs), so with the $49.95 plan Takeout Rocket would be saving the restaurant $1,450 per month or over $17,000 per year, which is a tremendous cost saving benefit and improvement to net profit.
Easy to Use Online Ordering System for Restaurants
Keeping not only the restaurant in mind, but also the customer, we made sure our online ordering system for restaurants was easy to use and could be used by customers whether they were at home on their desktop, laptop or tablet, as well as on their iPhone or Android smart phone.
Free social media to help increase takeout orders
Last, but not least, we know the importance of exposure and how that can increase a restaurant’s business. Having been part of a social media development team with colleagues in Ireland and the UK, we decided to integrate that social media software into our model as well as a few other ideas we felt would help restaurants with increased order flow. With the right tools at our finger tips we realized we could provide a valuable service to the restaurant industry.
It was very important for us to be able to offer social media marketing as part of our online ordering system for restaurants, at no additional charge. 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 ! ! !
Restaurant owners and their staff are busy running the restaurant. They barely have time to monitor social media let alone come up with a marketing plan posting 100 or more relevant social media posts per month to promote their restaurant, specials, holiday events and new menu items. That’s why we include over 100 social media posts in our $49.99 silver plan and over 200 social media posts in our $29.99 gold plan. We want to spread the word and help increase your business.
It is difficult to be a restaurant and ignore social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and especially Instagram. We not only see the importance of these channels, but understand most restaurants just don’t have the time or skills to effectively use them. Well we do, and not only that, but we provide marketing efforts for no additional charge as part of our two monthly plans. It’s all included in the monthly plan.
