Restaurant Service Re-Imagined - Walk Ups

As we learn the lessons of our environment, restrictions placed upon us by unseen and the unanticipated consequences of the unseen, we are forced to adapt. And change isn’t always bad. Sometimes it gives us the chance to make things better (reimagined).

In the case of restaurants in our age the emphasis is on the word and the process of the verb “make”.

Stage (0ption) I:

To secure the loyalty of your customers. You can make it easier (and safer) for them to purchase items from your menu with an
O-P-P process: Order - Pay (on line)  and Pickup.

One option is to have them order it delivered - Grubhub, DoorDash, Uber Eats.

The problem with that is the discount required to secure their services eats into your profit.

Another, more long term solution (and less costly to you) the owner, is to have your customers pick their orders up at your Walk Up Station.

A Walk Up Station can be as simple as borrowing some space from your lobby and have a pass through window installed:

                                      Before                                                                          After



  • Walk up/skate board or bicycle convenience that does not interfere with your lobby entrance
  • Pick up convenience for vehicle passengers that does not require a cash register or cashier attendant ie. Ordered and Paid for on line
  • A one time expense that will continue after/when a vaccine is no longer an issue
  • A  permanent invitation to your customers to enjoy your menu conveniently with an option that secures their safety
