Restaurants flock to QR

Almost half of restaurant and takeaway owners have adopted new technologies since the start of the pandemic, according to new research by Irish food ordering softwareqr1121 developer Flipdish.

44% of those businesses invested over €1,500 to do so.

The most popular technology adaptations were website ordering and QR code table ordering technology.
The research reveals that consumers are also in favour of restaurants and bars continuing to use such technologies after the pandemic.
70% of Irish adults surveyed said they would like pubs and restaurants to continue to offer QR code table ordering technology when Covid-19 restrictions are fully lifted.
Interestingly, 78% of females would prefer this technology remains, opposed to 60% of males.

 

"After a turbulent few months, the future of the sector is bright and the technology that Flipdish offers will allow restaurant owners to thrive in a post pandemic world," said James McCarthy, co-founder of Flipdish.
 
"We are thrilled to see restaurant and takeaway owners implementing QR code table ordering technology which will help combat staff shortages and increase operational efficiency and consumer convenience," he added.
 
The vast majority of restaurant owners surveyed said they will continue to invest in new technologies in the future.
