Refurbish your Menu for Delivery services

  • Published on : 21/05/2021

Food needs to be relished in its true essence. Unfortunately, sometimes while delivering, certain food items do not travel well. This, in turn, can hamper your brand image, and your customers might not want to order in the future. With the second lockdown, delivery services are in demand and the only resort for both restaurants and the customers. Restaurants rely on delivery services to keep the revenue flowing while customers can still enjoy their favourite cuisines at the comfort of their homes. What can go wrong are the menu items that cannot be delivered in their proper form. 

Therefore, it is important that restaurants should refurbish their delivery menu.

Instead of this

Dosa with heavy filling can make it soggy. Dosa is enjoyed when crispy and hot, and its fillings are intact.

Keep the filling light; else other South Indian dishes can be offered to your customers like Uttappam, Idli, Fried Idli, Sambhar Vada, among others. 

Instead of this

Multi-layered burgers that can fall out.

Promote this

Single or two-layered burgers with less sauce so that it doesn’t fall out and remains fresh.

Instead of this

Chole Bhature is one of the nation’s favourite dishes. But oil spilling from the chole is a big turn-off for a foodie. Plus, no one likes to eat a bhatura that has gone soggy and cold.

Chole Kulche is a better option for delivery, and chole made with kulchas are non-oily. Also, kulchas can keep soft if delivered within 30 mins. 

Instead of this

French fries or Chilli Potatoes. There is no better alternative for french fries but reheating cold fries is like going back to your ex.

The beauty of potatoes is that they are versatile. You can offer your customers some healthier options like mashed potatoes or baked potatoes. Peanut masala is an equally more nutritious and good alternative side dish.

Instead of this

Veg or non-veg salad. Salad, if not delivered within an appropriate time, can spoil the leafy vegetables, spill the sauce and turn soggy.

Promote this

An easier delivery item like a sandwich or a sub. All the veg and non-veg salad ingredients can be clubbed into a delicious sandwich and a sub that can be easily delivered. 

These are few food items that can be spearheaded easily across the town, can be reheated, but above all can be enjoyed at the comfort of one’s home. Though, packaging plays a significant role in how food can be delivered in its best form. Packaging has also evolved through the years and there are many eco-friendly options available in the market. Make the best choice with the kind of food items and how you want to deliver them so that your customers keep on ordering again.
