Food delivery services have been growing in popularity for many years, so much so that it’s now become a huge part of many food businesses' revenue streams.
There’s a huge market of customers who want the convenience of ordering food from their favourite restaurants straight to their front door and, if you want to have a successful food business, you should think about offering this too.
Here’s the best way to home deliver your takeaway burgers.
The first thing you need to think about is whether you want to hire your own delivery drivers and vehicles or outsource this task to one of the many food delivery services – like Uber Eats or Deliveroo.
By organising the delivery by yourself, you can have more control over how quickly food gets delivered and the drivers who are delivering your food. However, by choosing to deliver through Uber Eats or Deliveroo, you only need to worry about paying their fees and nothing else.
You should also consider the fact that by being on Uber Eats or Deliveroo, you will have the chance to be viewed by the thousands of people already signed up to the apps in your area who could be potential new customers.
It can be stressful when you’re trying to manage a restaurant full of diners plus all the online orders that come in throughout the day.
Many businesses choose to streamline their menus, especially the menu that they offer online customers. You might not want to offer the whole menu and instead focus on dishes that are quick and easy to prepare, package, and transport.
When you’re trying to balance physical and online customers, you can’t just accept an unlimited amount of orders as it will put too much pressure on your chefs and delivery drivers.
Organise a cut-off point that will come into action when you’ve reached a certain amount of orders. This way you give your staff enough time to prepare everything without having to rush and avoid long delays for customers.
Finally, when you’re delivering food you want to make sure that everything is stored correctly. Choose packaging that is leak-proof and sturdy. We have a number of different burger box options for home delivery and takeaway:
A great option if you have prep or down time to make up from flat. Our flat pack burger clams take up minimal space and start from as little as 1000 units. Fully printed in CMYK with full coverage branding.
Another great option is our flatpack burger boxes ideal for home delivery. Custom printed from as little as 1000 boxes, delivered in 2 - 3 weeks.
If you are looking for burger packaging that is super quick then our pre glued burger clams are the ticket. MOQs are a little higher at 25,000 units.
Greaseproof paper is a good option to wrap your burgers for maximum heat retention. You may also want to include tamper-evident stickers to show customers that food hasn’t been tampered with during delivery.
