As the lockdown in Britain continues, and many restaurants, bars, pubs and cafes remain closed, we are committed to supporting our clients, partners, colleagues and the wider industry. As part of this, we will be recording and releasing regular QikTalk: Bite-sized Business Advice videos. Each will offer fresh ideas and inspiration, and all will be created with food, retail and hospitality operators in mind.
In the coming weeks we will tackle topics from digital engagement and marketing to ‘giving back and paying it forward’. We will talk about hitting the ground running once restrictions are eased and how to re-gain the confidence of nervous customers.
Our YouTube channel is where you can learn how to successfully take digital ordering (online ordering and mobile ordering) for the first time, and even grow your brand. To watch and subscribe to our QikTalk videos, click here now.

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.
