Is restaurant business suffering with technology? Delivery services are booming nowadays. And together with economy customers are starting to use more and more of the delivery system. Leaving restaurants as a second plan. Supermarkets are “stealing” a lot of the restaurant customers, the reason for that is the fact that a lot of supermarkets now sell take-and-bake food. You just need to heat it up at home and you will have a meal.
Customers are not too concerned about the place they are going to eat. The only thing the consumers are concerned with is if they are getting what they want and when they want it.
2016 has been the year food delivery services took over the world. Of course, we are mostly talking about urban areas. However, this kind of services has grown a lot which could become a terrible thing for the restaurant industry. If you don’t play the cards right, people will start going to the restaurant less and less.
Here are three things you should do to prevent that to happen:
# 1 The Restaurant Experience
Sure people can order food and eat it at home or wherever they are. However, the experience to go to a restaurant, to eat out, to have a date, to meet friends, is a unique experience. Restaurants have to make sure their customers remember that.
# 2 Less Personal
Restaurants are the perfect place for meetings and gatherings. Especially when the topic to be discussed is very professional, or the people who are having the meetings or gatherings don’t know each other. Restaurants can be very cozy and give you that home feeling, but at the same time, you know it is not. And it is not always that you want to bring strangers to your house or office.
# 3 The Convenience
Sometimes all you want is to sit and have people doing things for you. Customers can only get that when they go to a restaurant. The only thing they need to do is choose whatever they want and wait for their food to be ready. Make sure your clients remember that.
