This year has been a trophy-laden year for Preoday and its clients.
Preoday has been shortlisted alongside its client, fishnchickn, for the award, the winner of which will be announced later this month. The entry shows how digital ordering has helped increase revenue per customer for the fish and chip brand, as well improve the customer experience. This award will go to the eating or drinking out brand that is able to demonstrate the best use of technology in enhancing the guest journey or better promoting a brand/venue.
In October The Aviva Stadium in Dublin won the “Best Use of Technology” category at this year’s Foodservice Cateys for its use of digital ordering technology with Preoday. Described by judges of the Foodservice Cateys as “one of the most simple but effective uses of technology”, the RapidQ mobile ordering service, powered by Preoday, has been making service easier for Aviva Stadium for over five years.
Pak Wai Hung and the team at 288 Bar & Wok were proud to receive a 2019 Observer Food Monthly Award. In October 2019 Cheltenham restauranteur Pak Wai Hung collected the OFM award for “Best Cheap Eats” at a ceremony hosted by Nigella Lawson and Jay Rayner at the Freemasons Hall in Covent Garden, London.
First UK digital-only fish and chip shop
Winner of Fish and Chip Shop of the Year 2019, Krispies is an Exmouth fixture. With one store already beloved by locals, Krispies fish and chips has now opened a second site, which is wholly digital. Powered by Preoday, the Krispies mobile and online ordering service enables customers to get their favourite fish and chips delivered to them or pick them up from the store.
45 theatres working with us
Summer 2019 saw the Preoday platform play host to audiences at its 45th theatre. The Aotea Centre in Auckland, New Zealand joined The National Theatre, the Royal Albert Hall and 42 others, in offering customers the opportunity to pre-order refreshments either online and/or via a mobile app.
We’re expanding around the world
In November we launched our first African client when an Angolan sushi restaurant used Preoday to launch its business. Luanda-based sushi restaurant, Bonsai, is using Preoday’s digital ordering platform to offer mobile ordering with food available for collection or delivery to its new location.
This spring we held a webinar for QSRs and takeaway restaurants taking them through the benefits of digital ordering and giving advice on how to make a success of it. You can watch the full webinar here.

Everyone’s taking bets on what the big trends and 2020 predictions will be. Read our latest report to find out which ones we have picked out.
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.
