Preoday expands into Germany with Metropol Theater, its first theatre client
The Metropol Theater Bremen, is the first German theatre to embrace digital ordering through Preoday, and its partner Ticketmaster. Now, theatre patrons no longer have to wait in line for drinks and food at the theatre before, at the interval or after shows.
Metropol is the largest theatre in Bremen and caters not only to the city’s theatre lovers, but also those from the surrounding area, showing a variety of musical and dance theatre. Under new ownership since January 2018, the theatre’s programme will now include not only theatre, musicals, magic shows and classical music concerts, but also rock concerts, corporate events and job fairs.
The theatre’s new app is now available to download from Google Play and the App Store, as well as through the theatre website. Patrons can also order refreshments through the Ticketmaster Experience app, when they buy tickets.
The service will be available for food and drink for before the show, at the interval and after the show. The theatre will be launching its new service at the performance of Shen Yun on 13th and 14th April.
Jörn Meyer, owner of the Metropol Theater, says, “My ambition is to transform the Metropol Theater into an all-singing, all-dancing multi-event venue. We want to give theatregoers the best experience possible and when it comes to food, now our patrons will be able to order their refreshments in advance at leisure and pick them up without having to stand in the line. We’re delighted to be able to give theatregoers access to this service online, on their mobile phones and through our partner Ticketmaster.”
Nick Hucker, CEO of Preoday, says, “For theatregoers in a hurry, pre-ordering food and drink just takes away a layer of stress and enables them to focus on what’s important – the performance. This latest theatre is particularly exciting because it represents our first client in Germany. We look forward to other German theatres adopting this service and giving their patrons an unparalleled food and drink experience.”
It’s not as catchy as: ‘When is a door not a door?’ (answer, when it’s a jar) but it speaks to the idea that in-car collection, and the technologies that support it, are flexible enough to bend to the needs of a business and its guests.
Delivery can be daunting to the uninitiated, and it might be tempting to sign up with a third-party ordering aggregator that offers the service, such as UberEats, but other options could suit your business and brand better. Here we present three different ‘levels’ of delivery, starting with the most basic – and cheapest method: doing it yourself.
