People want more takeout and they're ordering online

People want more takeout and they're ordering online | SocialMediaRestaurants.com | Scoop.it
The Wall Street Journal reports that the online takeout and delivery company has filed a confidential S-1 and could make an initial public offering sometime in the first half of this year. A recent look at the economics of the restaurant industry have all signs pointing to more online ordering in the near future. Following the past three recessions, the restaurant industry has grown at a real rate of more than 2 percent over a three-year span of economic recovery. [...] people should begin fulfilling these desires if the recovery continues, according to the report, which describes customers as "primed to burn off their accumulated pent-up demand for restaurants when they are more confident in their personal financial situation." Fine dining was the only category where fewer than half of the establishments surveyed expected to see an increase in online ordering, and even 48 percent of those fancy restaurants anticipate a jump in online takeout.

Tableside Ordering: What's Next?

Tableside Ordering: What's Next? | SocialMediaRestaurants.com | Scoop.it
By the end of 2014, more than 4,000 well-known restaurant chain locations
will feature tableside ordering via a tablet device. And it’s only the
beginning. 

Now, we’re talking about mostly utility value here to begin with – guests
will be able to order appetizers, drinks, and desserts, with a few games
and news headlines available. Some are worried about how this will derail
the dining experience, and only further turn consumers away from the casual
dining segment. On the other hand, casual dining has been scorched by the 
speed and convenience of fast casuals for some time now. Something had to
give so the segment can forge a new identity.
