December 9, 2020 – Quick communication with customers via smartphone could save the restaurant industry. The winter months will continue to see more COVID-19 cases, and with mass vaccination at least a few months away, restaurants, coffee shops, and food joints must switch to digital channels to survive and flourish. What’s needed is a quick and personal connection with customers who are mostly online, such as the service offered by the Mobile Smart Connect Service.
The harsh reality of the COVID-19 pandemic has hit the restaurant Industry, but there is hope on the horizon! The stats are indeed worrisome, with 60% of restaurants considered to be permanently closed, and 40% of operators not sure of survival in the next six months. With long and cold winter approaching, a solution like the Mobile Smart Connect service could be the difference between thriving and shutting down.
92% of restaurant traffic is now reported to be off-premise. 82% of diners reported having searched for a restaurant on their smartphone. This is indeed good news and could be the saving grace for those who switch to a service like the Mobile Smart Connect Service.
