Where Public & Product Meet
It’s About Time
The food service industry faces a number of unique challenges. For example, fast food franchises, high-end restaurants and grocery stores must generally take deliveries in the same parking lot that services their customer base, and space is often constricted.
And when it comes to deliveries, timing can be everything. You don’t want to draw restaurant staff off the floor during peak hours, and you want deliveries to be in and out as quickly as possible and to arrive as infrequently as possible. That means optimizing deliveries to carry everything the store orders at the same time, in highly precise quantities. Additionally, national scope and integrated processes are a must when serving franchises spread across the country.
