Fast Casual Ordering Kiosks

The TouchBistro Kiosk Increases Average Check Size

— February 5, 2018 — Lifestyle
Fast casual restaurants need to find different ways to distinguish themselves from quick service competitors, and with TouchBistro Kiosks, that differentiation is a little easier. The customer-facing, tablet-based systems let customers order from a digital menu quickly and efficiently, giving them a different interface with the typical menu and helping to increase average check sizes significantly.

Fast casual establishments toe a tricky line. On the one hand, they aim to serve thoughtfully crafted dishes that stand out from the more productionized fare of a QSR. However, they still need to be able to serve up those meals more quickly than a full-service restaurant. TouchBistro Kiosks are a great way to walk that tightrope. They eliminate contact with staff, thus speeding up the ordering process without worsening the dining experience.
Trend Themes
1. Tablet-based Ordering - Restaurants can implement tablet-based ordering systems like TouchBistro Kiosks to give customers a faster and more efficient way of ordering.
2. Increased Average Check Sizes - Using digital menus, restaurants can offer promotions and recommended add-ons to increase the average check size of their customers.
3. Contactless Dining Experience - TouchBistro Kiosks eliminate the need for customer-staff contacts, providing a safe and convenient way to order food amid pandemic.
Industry Implications
1. Restaurant Industry - Restaurants can adopt TouchBistro Kiosks to improve their ordering process and increase sales while providing a contactless dining experience.
2. Technology Industry - The demand for tablet-based ordering systems can potentially increase the demand for the production and development of related technologies.
3. Hospitality Industry - TouchBistro Kiosks can improve the efficiency and convenience of ordering for hotels, resorts, and other dining establishments in the hospitality industry.
