Everyone is looking forward to COVID restrictions finally being lifted. However, as a hospitality owner, tensions are understandably high with massive to-do lists. Get a helping hand with these 5 platforms and get the most out of your re-opening!

Everyone is looking forward to COVID restrictions finally being lifted, and hospitality venues re-opening for dine in so that people can gather together once more.

However, as a hospitality owner, tensions are understandably high with massive to-do lists that need to be checked off prior to re-opening — and no doubt operational matters are the main concern. 

Get a helping hand with these 5 platforms and get the most out of your re-opening!

1. Mr Yum 

With strict density limits on indoor dining and the recent release of new outdoor seating permits, hospitality owners are trying to maximise their outdoor dining areas. 

However, managing a new service area can be tough! It requires more staff to serve customers and can be difficult to maintain the same level of amazing customer service across the floor. 

Luckily, you can now make this process heaps easier with Mr Yum’s QR code mobile ordering system! 

Using Mr Yum, customers can order and pay straight from their seat using your beautifully curated visual menu - helping you manage new table areas and create service efficiencies whilst still providing an awesome customer experience (plus, orders through Mr Yum see up to a 40% higher spend). 


2. PaTH Business Placement Program

Restaurant & Catering Association is partnering up with the Australian government to help young people gain skills and work experience in the field.

If you are looking for some extra helping hands for your re-opening, you can always apply to be a member of the program and hire new staff/trainees, as well as receive additional financial incentives for your business.

You and the trainee are financially supported by the government during the internship period — that’s a win-win! ⭐

3. Now Book It

Gone are the days of taking bookings with pen & paper. You can now do it with just a tap of a finger with platforms like Now Book It.

With all hospitality venues opening at the same time, it’s best to get your customers to commit to dine with you. Now Book It’s platform can help you seamlessly take bookings and allow you to maximise revenue by ensuring smooth cover turnovers and no double bookings. 

But what makes Now Book It different from the rest of the competition? By eliminating commissions per booking, it provides software at a low monthly subscription fee, costing you less for more! It also empowers restaurants to take bookings directly via their own website, doing away with the third parties who try to take a cut of your business.

Time to fill up those tables!
