GoTab Delivers news
GoTab, a leading restaurant commerce platform, today announced new capabilities that enable multi-operator locations such as food halls, festivals, stadiums and others, to automate vendor payouts while enabling a streamlined ordering and payment experience for guests. With GoTab for Multi-Operator Locations, vendors receive individualized control of menu management and reporting, as well as direct payouts, including taxes and tips, on a daily basis.

Ideal for food halls, entertainment venues, stadiums and more, GoTab creates a unified QR code ordering experience for all active vendors within a parent location, simplifying payment for guests and providing vendors with increased visibility, customization and sales transparency. Based on an analysis of existing operators that use QR ordering, GoTab has proven to make a direct impact resulting in 20% higher tips, 35-50% higher check averages, 25% faster table turns, and 30-50% increased labor efficiency.

"As guests flood back to food halls, stadiums and other entertainment venues, they've come to expect the convenience of digital – fast, easy-to-use mobile ordering, one-touch payment and more. GoTab for Multi-Operator Locations empowers vendors to deliver that integrated ordering experience for guests, while reaping the benefits of increased visibility within the parent location, daily payouts, seamless menu management, and ultimately, increased sales." 

-Tim McLaughlin, CEO and Co-Founder GoTab.

How Multi-Operator Works 
Individual vendors within a food hall, entertainment venue, stadium, or other multi-merchant location will have access to their own dashboard and create their personalized menu featuring available food offerings or retail products, which is then shared with the parent location. Guests can scan and order from a single QR code showcasing all of the vendors and their customized menus. Orders are then routed to the respective vendors' Kitchen Display System and/or printer for fulfilment. Once guests pay their tab, tips are allocated to each vendor by percentage of sales.

A Unifying Experience for Guests with Individualized Control and Reporting for Vendors

Purpose-built to streamline the vendor and guest experience, GoTab for Multi-Operator Locations provides the simplest way for guests to order across vendors – without having to download an app – and the easiest way for vendors to optimize order efficiency, receive payout and gain visibility.

This new solution prioritizes transparency in sales, providing real-time access to sales and tab data and transferring payouts, including taxes and tips, directly to each vendor on a daily basis. For multi-vendor transactions, tips are automatically allocated by percentage of sales, which can be automated to the parent location. In addition, despite living on the same QR code, each vendor has the ability to create their own menus, products and messages that align best with their brand, showcasing consistency and easing communication with their guests. Further, since guests view all uploaded menus from a single QR code, each venue has more visibility across the parent location, increasing the likelihood of individual sales.

GoTab for Multi-Operator Locations is revolutionizing the vendor experience at participating venues through first-of-its kind technology designed to simplify the guest ordering experience while empowering vendors with complete menu control, quicker payouts, real-time sales reports and more.

Picnic Works™ and Minnow Technologies Create Partnership to Bring Enhanced Automation Solutions to Foodservice Industry

Picnic Works | August 20, 2022

Picnic Works, a Seattle-based developer of kitchen automation technology, today announced a partnership with Minnow Technologies, a neighboring Seattle IoT startup that has developed the Pickup Pod™, a self-service pickup solution for foodservice operators. The partnership leverages the expertise of both companies to help commercial kitchens, stadiums, large franchises, universities, and commercial food service providers envision and enable end-to-end food automation services. This includes a focus on mobile and kiosk ordering, automated food assembly, and secure contactless pickup solutions. "Both companies share a desire to create automation solutions for the foodservice industry,"Minnow's cloud-connected pickup solutions are an excellent complement to Picnic kitchen automation technology. From mobile ordering to secure pickup, together we offer a complete modern automation solution." Clayton Wood, CEO of Picnic The partnership will build customized solutions using the two companies' technology. Examples include building out new concession concepts at theme parks, stadiums, or schools. A customer can place a mobile or kiosk order that is made automatically by the Picnic station and then put in a heated or insulated Pickup Pod for the customer to retrieve at their convenience. At universities, students can place mobile pizza orders which are assembled by the Picnic Pizza Station and then picked up from a Pickup Pod. End-to-end automation solutions like these can help increase the efficiency of a kitchen at peak times, reduce food waste through efficient just-in-time ordering and production, and increase customer satisfaction with ordering and pickup. "We're thrilled to be partnering with Picnic to bring leading-edge automation solutions to foodservice operators," said Steven Sperry, CEO and co-founder of Minnow. "Our goal is to create solutions that delight diners while improving the efficiency and profitability of kitchens. By leveraging Picnic kitchen automation technology and Minnow's pickup offering, we have an opportunity to bring best-in-class automation solutions to our customers." The Picnic Pizza Station is autonomous and completely customizable for each order – after loading the dough, the Picnic station takes care of applying the sauce, cheese, fresh-cut pepperoni, and additional toppings. The finished pizzas are then loaded into the kitchen's ovens for cooking. Each hour, the Picnic station can assemble up to 100 pizzas. The Picnic technology also allows for integration with a kitchen's point-of-sale (POS) equipment and mobile ordering platforms. The customer roster for the Picnic Pizza Station includes managed foodservice providers Compass, Chartwells, and Sodexo Live!, Texas A&M University, The Ohio State University, SeaWorld, and numerous regional pizzerias with new customers coming online weekly. The Minnow Pickup Pod is an IoT-enabled, smart food locker that provides restaurants, ghost kitchens, cafeterias, and other foodservice operators with a self-service order pickup solution. Instead of leaving delivery and takeout orders on an unattended shelf, which inevitably leads to pick up errors and shrinkage, orders are kept in secure, insulated cubbies. To help ensure food safety and freshness, the Pickup Pod monitors every pickup, alerting the foodservice operator when food isn't picked up within a specified time. Minnow Pickup Pods are proudly made in the USA by Hatco Corporation, a world-class foodservice equipment manufacturer. Today, Pickup Pods can be found in more than 15 states and most major cities including Atlanta, Boston, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Miami, Houston, Dallas, Washington D.C, and Chicago with new installations happening weekly. The Picnic Pizza Station and the Minnow Pickup Pods are NSF and ETL/UL certified, feature online connectivity, support integration with popular point-of-sale (POS) services like Toast and Square, and are supported with cloud-based software and over-the-air firmware updates. With a strong foundation of shared technological capabilities and an understanding of how to create customer-focused automation technology, the partnership between Picnic and Minnow sets the standard for food automation solutions. About Picnic: Founded in 2016, Picnic Works (hellopicnic.com) has collected an experienced team of food and technology industry veterans to develop and provide specialized intelligent technology and exclusive solutions for the food service and hospitality industries. Restaurants, convenient and grocery stores, university and corporate campuses, casinos, hotels, cruise lines, sports venues, catering groups, healthcare cafeterias, small kiosks, ghost kitchen operators, mobile food operations, food trucks, delivery, and military sites are among the many segments poised to benefit from the company's automated food assembly platform integrating RaaS, software, cloud, and deep learning technology. About Minnow Founded in 2017, Minnow's smart food lockers (called "Pickup Pods") provide a better way to manage order pickups. With a modern design and a small footprint, Pickup Pods are perfect for restaurants, ghost kitchens, cafeterias, and other places where food is picked up. They can also streamline food deliveries to office buildings, multifamily properties, universities, and hospitals.
