With the current situation of the world, many gelaterias and ice cream shops have been forced to close due to the COVID-19 pandemic, leaving delivery or takeout as options. That’s why store owners are shifting into takeout to keep the business going and to continue serving their loyal customers.
Here are the top five advantages of having a food delivery service.
- Increased check sizes.
Gelaterias and ice cream shops are seeing a 20% increase in check sizes from online and delivery orders versus dine-in orders.
- Make up for reduced foot traffic.
While most cities and states have started reopening gelaterias and ice cream shops, they are still facing a pretty strict set of restrictions that limit the number of guests allowed to dine-in at any time. You can still increase your foot traffic by offering delivery to your customers who are at home or still uncomfortable going out, even if the restrictions are being removed.
- More business opportunities.
There are customers who want to make food pairing in the comfort of their own home. By offering delivery, you will be able to serve a wider range of customers.
- Less overhead costs.
If you opt to make delivery be the bulk of your business or if you shift to a ghost kitchen model, you can look at downsizing your space to save on rent or staff labor.
- Exposure to new customers.
A delivery service can help you reach new customers outside your geographic location. It can be an advantage for urban locations, where potential customers may not have access to a car. Third-party apps can help amplify this reach since they double as marketing platforms. Try to look for third-party apps that you like and navigate around.
But before you can start your delivery service, you need to be able to prepare your product in a way that the packaging is delivery-ready, meaning it can withstand the travel from your store to your customers.
