Canadian maker of Mediterranean-inspired filled pita breads, Pita Pit, is using Preoday technology to launch a new quick collect and office catering delivery service in the UK. Customers in Manchester are able to use the new app and the website to place and pay for their orders.
With over 600 restaurants, across 13 countries, Pita Pit is launching its pre-ordering service at two of its three UK outlets at Deansgate and Piccadilly Place in Manchester. Regulars to the sandwich bars will be able to skip the lunchtime rush and pre-order and pay for their customised sandwiches, to be picked up immediately. Pita Pit is also offering its popular Catering Delivery service for business lunches across Manchester.
The app is available online at http://pitapituk.com/ and on the App Store and Google Play from today, 11th January. The pre-ordering service is available at Pita Pit Deansgate from 11th January and the Piccadilly Place app and the Catering Delivery service will be available from 16th January.
Dylan Powell, the Director of Strategic Development for Pita Pit International explained, “Pita Pit always strives to be innovators in hospitality. So partnering with Preoday to launch our pre-ordering service was an obvious choice. The flexibility of the platform and its ability to capture rich customer data was perfectly in line with our goals for app and online ordering. Its multi-lingual capabilities and white-label features fit well with our international presence. Now that we have launched in the UK, we are already thinking about which other markets we will be introducing this service to next.”
Andrew White, CEO of Preoday, said, “Pita Pit’s new pre-ordering service will help customers quickly get the food they want, when they want it, rather than waiting in queues. As customers come to expect the same digital experience and level of service across all areas of their lives, hospitality businesses need to adapt quickly. We are proud to help our clients meet and exceed their customers’ expectations.”
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.
