BentoBox, a hospitality platform that empowers restaurants to own their presence, profits and relationships, has launched a COVID Relief Fund feature for online ordering customers. The checkbox enables guests to instantly contribute $1.99 to their takeout or delivery order as part of a relief fund that goes directly to the restaurant. BentoBox does not take any commission or fees from these contributions.
The feature aligns with BentoBox’s core mission of creating an effortless experience for restaurants while driving high-margin revenue and elevating every interaction between the restaurant and its guests. Restaurants can add this function to online ordering in under one minute, and it is instantly reflected within the guest experience.
At a time when restaurants are almost entirely reliant on online ordering to bring in revenue, it is vital that they keep every penny from pickup and delivery orders. Third-party services often charge commissions, taking away nearly the entire profit of an online order and making it much more difficult for restaurants to survive.
Restaurants.Love provides an easy-to-use directory that enables diners to order directly from thousands restaurants. By ordering directly, diners both save money on hidden third-party fees, which can make orders 91% more expensive, and ensure that restaurants keep the whole check.
At a time when restaurants are almost entirely reliant on online ordering to bring in revenue, it is vital that they keep every penny from pickup and delivery orders. Third-party services like Grubhub, Caviar, and UberEats often charge commissions as high as 35%, taking away nearly the entire profit of an online order and making it much more difficult for restaurants to survive.
Participating restaurants include neighborhood staples, such as Cheesetique in Alexandria, Va., Mucci’s Italian in St. Paul, Minn., and Union Square Hospitality Group in New York City. Many Restaurants.Love locations also offer a simple checkbox that gives diners the ability to contribute $1.99 to a COVID Relief Fund for the restaurant at checkout.
