Post About Your Take-Out Services on Social Media with a Link to Order
Social media helps increase awareness of your business and drive restaurant sales.
Construct Your Restaurant Menu Carefully
Your menu should include all food choices that can be transported safely and easily. Check with your food supplier/distributor for ideas on how to create customized menu solutions specific to take-out.
Make Sure Your Staff is Paying Attention to Take-Out Details and Accuracy
Check for accuracy during and after order production to ensure the food is what the customer wanted. Verify that every item the customer expects is present and, whenever possible, go over the order with the customer at the point of pick-up.
Set Up a Take-Out and/or Curbside Pickup Area
Consider having a separate counter or parking area for take-out customers. If there’s not enough space for a separate area, you might use the end of the bar.
Emphasize Your Food Safety Process for Customers
Make sure that your staff is following proper food safety guidelines when assembling orders for pick-up or delivery. Also, ensure you’re using containers that will keep food warm and presentable.
