FutureStarrMcDonald's, PepsiCo, GM Flex Their - The Future of Fast Food
Since contactless ordering, drive-thru options and online ordering make ordering fast food convenient, brands have scrambled to update their locations to accommodate these new habits. Chipotle recently unveiled its 3,000th location with an automated drive-thru pickup lane for digital orders; Del Taco has followed suit by creating similar concepts at their locations. Digital Ordering Even as fast food chains increasingly prioritize automation and digital ordering, customers still prefer ordering in person. According to a survey, 51% of customers identified in-person ordering as the single most significant change they experienced at fast food restaurants over the last year. Technology doesn't need to take over industries - rather, companies will invest in solutions designed to enhance customer experiences and streamline operations. Mobile ordering through branded apps has become an increasingly popular solution, reducing errors and saving time while building brand loyalty and improving customer service. Some brands are using digital platforms to encourage tipping. This can increase profitability and customer satisfaction as it makes leaving tips easier. Consider kiosk-style self-ordering machines, which can quickly deliver orders to patrons while also cutting labor costs and retail location expenses. Subway, McDonald's and Taco Bell have all adopted kiosks into their operations; Taco Bell even has an innovative drive-thru drive-thru which doubles up as a kiosk! These machines can serve up sandwiches, fries, pizza and other items on demand as well as drinks, desserts and snacks on-the-go. Restaurant operatorss who want to reduce labor costs while improving customer experience while making meal preparation faster for employees have an exciting option available to them: food carts. While still relatively young, this technology could become mainstream by 2023 and could revolutionize the fast food industry.
