Part 4 of 9: Improving Customer Loyalty
Updated: Jun 22
In this 9-part Blog post series, we'll cover how restaurants can not only survive but thrive in today’s changing environment where dine in is only one revenue stream, while take-out and delivery are becoming increasingly more important.
Send a survey after every take-out order. Get your customers opinion of the quality of food, delivery service (delivery time, package condition, food temperature, personnel professionalism, etc.)
Here are some strategic ways your restaurant can adopt new ways of doing business that will make big difference to customer loyalty:
Assign your staff, which you likely had to let go, that are great servers to deliver your take-out. After all, who is better than your own wait staff to build customer loyalty.
If you don’t have a branded restaurant app, it's easy to build one very inexpensively, that securely takes food orders, reservations, takes immediate payments, offers promotions and can even deliver a customer satisfaction survey.
Have your staff, follow up with phone calls, emails, or messages to your customers proactively, to ensure they are happy or address those that are not.
Have your staff review the survey reports that the mobile app or web provides.
Communicate frequent reminders regarding promotions, birthday, anniversary, holidays, etc.
Send “We missed you” reminder promotions – that recognize you haven’t ordered recently and offer incentives to order take-out.
