The restaurant industry is not the same anymore – thanks to technology!
The 21st century has been all about technology and its miraculous impact on our lives. A lot has been talked, documented and discussed, but things are still changing at a rapid pace and every day brings news of new innovation. In short, our lives are in a state of a stir – why? Well, all due to technological revolutions. And we can’t be thankful anymore!
We have seen how AirBnB changed the hospitality industry, WhatsApp shook the way we communicate, and Uber revolutionized traveling. These fields have long been under the radar of changes, but some industries took long to get influenced by technology, like the restaurant industry. But over the past few years, the restaurant industry has also undergone major changes. No, we are not talking about how pizza is delivered right at your footstep. We are talking about the big game, things that are shaping the restaurant industry in a big way.
Here are given some ways how technology is changing the landscape of the restaurant industry on both consumer and business end:
Food Delivery Apps:
Remember the excitement of the days when you came to know that you can satisfy your pizza craving without going anywhere on a snowy night. Yes, I am talking initiation of home delivery services. Now those exciting days have come quite far with food delivery apps.
You can order any food from any restaurant on a single spot to get it delivered at your doorstep. From smoothies, burgers, and sushi to roasted chicken, there is something to satisfy taste buds of everyone on these apps.
Previously, you had to enter a restaurant to grab its menu card and find out what it has to offer. And sometimes, when you didn’t find the menu worth giving a try, you also had to undergo the struggle of sneaking out of the restaurants without getting noticed. But now these restaurants and cafes have an online presence in the form of a website or social media account.
Their menu cards are uploaded on their online platforms, and you can see them from anywhere and anytime. You can browse websites of different restaurants to find out the one which offers the food that suits your taste. So, now you don’t have to hop from one restaurant to another to find out you pick because you can do it while sitting on your living room’s sofa.
Technology has also facilitated restaurant businesses. And one such example is Cheetah! It is a website that delivers restaurants’ ingredients right on their door. Obviously, restaurants have to keep their ingredients on shelves ready to deliver the customers’ order within time. They can’t run to grab spices when the order is due to be delivered within the next 15 minutes. And platforms like Cheetah have facilitated restaurants from this struggle. You can visit Cheetah’s website to know more about this amazing service, which is facilitating restaurants to save their neck from visiting different shops to find spices. You can find every spice on one spot, within the range of your click.
Technology has proven to be a magical wand for various industries as it has transformed their landscape like never before, including the restaurant industry. It is just 2019; let’s wait and watch how technology is going to shape it further. Fingers crossed!
