For years OrdersIn franchisees have provided online ordering services to local restaurants and retailers in their local area. We have a database of proven sales best practices gathered from our seasoned successful licensees. We also provide marketing and contract materials, scripts and custom tailored sales training, technical training and best practices training. No experience is needed to get started.
The takeout and delivery market is a $70 billion market, of which only $9 billion (13%) is online.
70% of customers order everything from food to retail products online. This number will continue to grow in the future.
In most areas nearly 65% of small to medium sized businesses (restaurants and retailers) do not have online ordering for their business and desperately need this service to stay competitive for the future.
For example, most local areas have hundreds of small restaurants which handle high volumes of pickup orders via phone daily. These include Asian, Mexican, Mediterranean, Burger and Pizza restaurants to name a few. These are excellent businesses for your target market.
Most small businesses do not have the budget or technical know-how to get online ordering for their business. They need someone in their area to help them get setup and make it cost efficient to accept orders online. This is where you come in.
The direction the market is heading clear, and industry experts agree that online orders are expected to surpass offline orders. Now more than ever local businesses need to be online.
This is one of the easiest scenarios to sign up a business. These restaurants and retailers already know the benefits of having online ordering so there’s not much convincing to sign them up. They also know the disadvantages of online ordering which include high percentage costs on orders and constant technical issues which are common for most large online ordering companies. These are issues they won’t have with your online ordering service business.
In any given area the main competition is GrubHub.com and Yelp’s Eat24.com. Our licensees are easily able to steal restaurants from the competition for the following reasons:
To find local businesses that don’t have online ordering do a quick Google Maps and Yelp search for “restaurants”. This will show you nearby restaurants and their websites. An email with your business’s information and demo links followed by a phone call introducing yourself to a decision maker is enough to get the interest going. Don’t worry we even provide the scripts. You can also schedule a live demo to go over the features and benefits with the local business owner or manager in person.
To find local businesses that have online ordering, a quick search through grubhub.com or eat24.com will show restaurants that currently have online ordering in place. Knowing the percentages they are paying (13% – 18%) and offering them a much lower percentage is an easy way to get the discussion started leading to an eventual sign up.
Chinese restaurants have statistically shown to do the largest volume of pick up orders in the world. 90% of their business consists of take out. We have an extensive sales and best practices training which goes over these strategies in more detail.
Once an order is placed and the customer’s credit card information is entered, the funds are instantly deposited to the local businesses’ bank account for each transaction. The process is the same if the customer was to swipe their credit card at the physical business location. All financial transactions are handled by our integrated partners Stripe and Paypal credit card processing services.
Your Admin Panel has an automated Invoicing system. When you are ready to bill a local business you will simply go to the ‘Invoicing’ area in your Panel and select the local business and time frame to bill them. An email with a ‘Pay Now’ link will be generated which connects to a Stripe invoice page which details the amount, services, the service dates, etc. The local business fills in their credit card information and submits the payment. Payments are instantly deposited to your bank account.
Licensees generally provide two payment options for restaurants and retailers to choose from:
(1) Percentage Per Order (ex. 3% – 12%)
(2) Flat Monthly Fee (ex. $50 – $150)
Licensees average anywhere from $500-5,000/mo to a high end of $12,000-$18,000/mo depending on their effort.

An online ordering search site for local restaurants in your area. This multi-site restaurant ordering platform allows customers to search for restaurant menus near them by using their location. All customer orders are placed from within your site and domain. You can even charge restaurants to be featured on the front page for additional exposure for them and additional revenue for you.
Restaurant’s customers will be able to order for pickup, make reservations and use coupon codes.
Existing Business Website – Embed or link an online ordering menu in any restaurant or retailer’s existing website. All customer orders are placed from the local business’ website.
Facebook Fan Site – Embed the online ordering menu in any restaurant or retailer’s existing Facebook site. Even if the business does not have a website they can easily create a Facebook fan site. Also, when a customer does a Google search for any local business, the first result is usually the businesses’ Facebook site. So having this feature is a big plus.
The website’s look and feels are customizable for your needs through your Admin Panel. Local businesses can be issued their own login and password to manage their own menus. Everything from order minimums, delivery fees, promotional discount codes and even delivery and pickup zones can be setup from the local businesses’ Business Panel.
Don’t worry about paying to get your own website created to advertise your business. We include that with your package. Everything from information on your business services, slide shows, pricing, contact form and even an interactive demo.
Once an order is placed the restaurant or retailer receives it immediately. Local businesses can receive orders via email, the Orders Dashboard from their business panel, HP e-printer, or fax. They can also receive order notifications from text messages and automated phone calls.
No, some licensees have hired commissioned sales people in their area. Ideally, a setup fee or percentage of the income can be given to the sales person.
