Building up a business can be hard, but the Covid-19 pandemic made it even more challenging. With restaurants shut across the country and online ordering tailing off, Atul’s Restaurant business suffered a setback during the lockdown. The dine-ins stopped, take-aways ceased. The online orders he used to get were next to nothing. Amidst this chaos, the only income he earned from hardly any orders was either given as commission to delivery partners or as a refund to customers.
But then he stumbled upon the Bikry app, which grew his business 2x even during the pandemic with an online store!
Let’s see how Bikry app helped him do that.
1. No commission sharing
Earlier, Atul used to share about 25-30% of his income with the aggregators. Due to the order crunch, paying the commission seemed even heavier to him. Bikry app allowed him to deliver his food without paying any commission to the aggregators. Moreover, setting up his online store through the Bikry app cost him nothing. Now, Atul has a full-fledged online restaurant. He gets more orders, inquiries, and earns more money.
2. Own your customers
Before associating with the Bikry app, Atul’s online orders were through an intermediary. People ordering the food did not deal with him directly. Rather, they dealt with the middle person. Through the Bikry app, he set up his online restaurant and sold his product through Whatsapp and Social media. Thus, not relying on any middle person. People started knowing him for his restaurant. Now, he gets a chance to interact with his customers, which is unlikely with cloud kitchen owners. And, he is the point of contact for all orders, leaving no room for confusion.
3. Delivery support
All the cloud kitchen owners depend upon some kind of delivery support. Atul’s support system was weak during the pandemic. He could not reach his entire targeted audience. With over 40+ delivery platforms pan India, the Bikry app provided Atul the kind of delivery support he needed. He is now able to sell everywhere without worrying about delivery.
4. Scannable Menu
Atul never liked adding every product to the apps he was using before. The Bikry app gave him the freedom to scan his physical menu and add the products in bulk. The uploading and scanning product catalog from the digital library takes only 30 seconds. However, if you are starting a new restaurant or cloud kitchen and you don’t have a menu yet, you can also upload the menu from an excel sheet. Automation saves you a lot of time and effort.
5. Secure payments
The app features quick online payments which can be settled within 4 minutes to your own account. Same-day settlements make it convenient and suitable for business owners. By generating his own payment link, Atul can collect his payments securely and instantly now. He no longer needs to wait for the agents to settle his payments.
“This app has all the features that can make an online restaurant successful. And now even I can proudly say, I own a Cloud Kitchen,” says Atul, whose business and confidence both increased 2x during the pandemic.
If the pandemic couldn’t stop Atul to scale his business by 2x, just imagine the kind of growth Bikry can get to you as the market starts to unlock!
