The NetWaiter website tells us that having online ordering is a good way to increase sales. They say that
- Average ticket amounts are 10-30% higher than in-restaurant amounts.
- You’re able to grow sales & profits without growing your staff or expanding your restaurant.
- 95% of people who order food online will actually go to that restaurant later.
- So, you can increase customer loyalty without initially bringing people into your restaurant.
A company called GloriaFood has created an amazing FREE app that allows people to
- Order food online for delivery or else
- Reserve a table for eating inside your restaurant.
It is free because GloriaFood would like you to buy some additional features. However, it is not necessary to buy the paid features.
Look at the list of FREE features. They include
- Website ordering
- Mobile ordering
- Table reservation
- Menu item pictures for web page
- Detailed reports
- See Menu & Order button for Facebook page
- Order food when making a table reservation
- Order now & pickup later
- Promo & coupon deals.

Adding online ordering to your restaurant is a good way to improve the bottom line of your income statement. While you’re working on your profitability, you might also want to consider teaching your serving staff about that often overlooked demographic — customers with disabilities.
