Office Cafeteria Mobile Ordering

The pandemic has changed many of our daily interactions, including our workplaces. As many people work from home, office cafeteria mobile ordering is a consideration for a safe return to the workplace.

With Hangry’s platform, office mobile ordering can offer multiple solutions to maintain safety measures as employees return to the workplace. There are three main ways to facilitate office cafeteria mobile ordering. Firstly, regular order and pickup can be offered to guests. Secondly, staff can deliver to employee desks. Finally, facilitate a scheduled dining experience using reservations.

Office Cafeteria Mobile Ordering – Regular Pickup

Regular order and pickup will allow employees to place their order via mobile app, and come to a pickup station to get their food. This pickup area can be by your usually cashier area, or it can be set up as a separate space. The benefits of a separate pickup area would be to maintain distance between staff and customers; as well as to centralize pickup for less touch points. With the order process, it’s similar to in-person ordering. Essentially the employee will place their order and a receipt will print to the kitchen. The employee sees a countdown on their device, and once their order is ready they are notified. There’s also an optional feature is to include a barcode scanner for pickup confirmation.

If you’re able to facilitate delivery, our platform offers the capability. Upon placing their order, employees would input their desk or room number in a special instructions box. This information would print off on their receipt, and once the order is ready staff can do their delivery rounds. As a result, this allows for employees to stay in their designated space, with minimal staff circulating to complete deliveries. Separate time estimates can be added to ensure staff have enough time to complete deliveries.

Another option would be delivery to pick up spots. In this case, you can create drop off points for the food. Then, employees could come and pick their food up at the designated locations once staff make the drop.

Some facilities may have enough space to accommodate for sit-down meals. In this case, it’s likely that distancing measures and capacity management will be important. Our office cafeteria mobile ordering app can help by facilitating scheduled time slots and capacity for your location. With the entry, you can either include a cost in case of all you can eat locations, or simply make the reservation free for capacity management purposes. Employees can make reservations via mobile app, or staff can take walk-in reservations based on capacity.
