Whether you’re operating small takeaway on the local high street or a big restaurant in the middle of the city, there have been many circumstances over the last few months that have required business owners, like yourself, to adapt to. From being forced to closed, opening with restrictions and limited hours there are so many things we have to be cautious of now when operating in food establishments.

If you’re looking for a new system that makes managing orders easier for you and more efficient for customers take a look at what XE Eats has to offer. One of the best things this system has to offer that will help you operate safely during these times is contactless tableside ordering!


How it works?
1. You’ll set up your new digital menu which can be adapted, changed and updated at any time giving you the flexibility that puts you back in control. You’ll be able to operate safely under the government restrictions and no matter what new rules/restrictions arrive your digital platform can be adjusted to suit.

2. Once your menu is ready, your customers will be able to access a free QR code that can be printed and used on individual tables or around the restaurant. The reason QR codes are so great for table ordering is that customers can access them easily from their phone. Whether they are using an IOS or Android device, they’ll be able to scan the QR code using just their usual camera (or Google Lens).

3. After the customer has scanned the QR code it’ll open the digital menu in a web browser. They’ll be able to scroll through, see the ingredients and, since you can update regularly, you can mark items as out of stock so there is no disappointment when it comes to ordering. Customers can add items to their basket, input their table number and pay all from their phone minimising contact between your staff and customers and limiting the resources you need in order to facilitate orders.

4. Orders placed by customers will come through to your kitchen staff and since customers can input their table numbers your waiters will have no trouble taking prepared food and drink over.

Operating a takeaway?
QR code menus still have a place in your establishment. Rather than ordering to a table customer orders can go straight through for takeaway (either collection or delivery). This gives you a uniformed approach to taking orders which increases staff/customer safety by minimising contact and eliminates the need for cash handling.
