Restaurants Can Thrive with Boonli for Smarter Food Program Management in Challenging COVID-19 Era

Sponsored by Businesswire

Restaurants struggling to adjust to the COVID-19 pandemic have a new, more cost-effective option for managing their online menu offerings, payment and distribution. Boonli, a nationwide meal order management and payment services platform, is expanding its services so restaurants can provide meals, groceries, and more to their communities.

Boonli’s platform powers food programs at more than 1,000 schools and workplaces nationwide helping restaurants & caterers efficiently manage kitchen operations for thousands of pre-orders, meal prep & distribution. During the COVID-19 crisis, Boonli’s food providers have used the platform to expand their offerings including meals & grocery staples, to-go, or delivered. Boonli is now expanding the program to restaurants nationwide.

Boonli’s Senior VP of Operations Jae Kusmaul said, “Independent restaurants are challenged by the current shift to 100% takeout and delivery business. They simply don’t have the tools to manage online menu ordering, pre-payments, and delivery. Popular online meal delivery services have huge commissions, decimating profits, that cannot be offset with higher-margin, traditional dining. Boonli can offer fees much lower than other platforms that include delivery, taking the cost and hassle out of pivoting their business online.”

More Food Management Options, Less Headaches

Boonli creates custom-branded, portals for each restaurant, enabling them to accept pre-paid online orders for either takeout or delivery. Restaurants can offer family-style meals or grocery items, so customers can plan meals or delivery for specific days of the week.

Boonli enables restaurants to:

  • Offer grab-and-go pick-up at their location for no-delivery fee
  • Accept order pre-payments to enable contactless pickup
  • Utilize staff for delivery to save costs and preserve jobs
  • Organize meal, food and pantry item preparation, pick-up and deliveries
  • Benefit from no setup costs, low transaction fees, and Boonli’s world class support
