Digital ordering provider Preoday, a QikServe company, is proud to supply the vital online ordering service which will allow fans to successfully order from a specially tailored menu made up of 22 TGI Fridays favourite dishes.
With safety a priority and social distancing measures fully in place on site, the newest feature on the platform allows TGI Fridays guests to pay in advance for their order and pick from a limited number of time slots, enhancing safety of both its teams and its guests. Furthermore, during the ordering process, guests will also be asked to input their vehicle number plate and colour. Following safe arrival, guests can open their boots, return to their vehicles and safely await delivery of their food from the TGI Fridays team member who will be able to identify them with the information provided, ensuring no physical contact.
Nick Hucker, Chief Revenue Officer at QikServe, comments: “We’re delighted to be working with TGI Fridays, helping it in its journey towards reopening to the public. Our pre-order and pay platforms are ideal for businesses seeking an avenue to serve audiences while minimising risk and maintaining safe social distancing practices. We’ve worked with hundreds of restaurants and shops in recent weeks and have seen first-hand the difference online ordering is making for businesses and the communities that love them.”
Speaking about the launch of Click & Collect, Robert B. Cook, CEO at TGI Fridays said: “We can’t wait to re-fire the grills in preparation for the launch of our new Click & Collect service in 24 selected locations. These initial sites have been chosen as we either own and can control the car park or the landlord has given us dedicated access. We will also be restoring delivery services at the same locations via Just Eat and Deliveroo, as applicable. We will continue to monitor UK Government advice but after an initial trial we aim to extend the rollout as soon as it is safe to do so.
We’re delighted to be working with QikServe as we look to technology to ensure the safety of our teams and our guests.”
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.
