New kiosk offering helps grocery retailers capitalize on changing consumer preferences by offering in-store customers a convenient way to place catering and prepared food orders
Los Angeles, CA /PRNewswire/ - FoodStorm, the world's leading catering software provider, today announced the launch of its FoodStorm Kiosk, a physical, self-serve kiosk for in-store customers to place orders for catering, prepared food, deli and bakery items with one managed backend.
As the environment for grocery businesses continues to evolve and has forever changed amid the pandemic, large companies like Amazon and Walmart are disrupting the way people grocery shop, focusing on customer convenience. The FoodStorm Kiosk can help both large chain and independent grocery retailers compete by entering new service lines and offerings via catering and prepared foods, attracting new customers, and retaining existing ones. By implementing FoodStorm's kiosk technology, brick-and-mortar retailers can provide in-store customers the ability to place, edit and pay for their orders autonomously.
"We are thrilled to announce the launch of our FoodStorm Kiosk. Our mission has always been to provide technology solutions for caterers to grow and manage their operation efficiently," said Rob Hill, CEO of FoodStorm. "The FoodStorm Kiosk allows grocery retailers of every size to bring extreme convenience and a frictionless purchasing experience to their customers for in-person catering and prepared food orders. Customers that have already implemented the FoodStorm Kiosk are seeing an increase in the number of orders and basket size, signaling a trend toward self-service technology, and a continued economic recovery in the United States. We want to help caterers and retail grocers capitalize on this trend with our industry-leading technology."
