Owning a restaurant is the same as owning any other business. You have to be smart and pay attention to trends to keep up with the competition.
Today, the secret of owning a successful restaurant business depends on having a web presence, and one of the best ways to showcase your brand online is by using Restaurant for WooCommerce – a smart and intuitive way to present your restaurant, bar, or cafe menu to online users.
Here is a complete list of the amazing features you can use as part of Restaurant for WooCommerce’s slick design:
Restaurant for WooCommerce gives you the power to create a unique online ordering system for your WooCommerce website. Customize your menu and ordering system’s options to give your customers an experience unlike any other.
The simple and clean user interface of the extension allows you to display your restaurant’s name, logo, and description on the front-end menu. Menu product data is automatically fetched from your WooCommerce inventory.
Restaurant for WooCommerce converts your shop into a food menu with just a few steps. Now, you don’t have to worry about adding categories and products every time you create a new menu.
Add a minimum order total to let the customers know what order amount they need to check out. If the requirements are not met, users will see an error message on the checkout page.
Modifiers allow you to add additional options (add-ons) to any product or category. These modifiers can be viewed and selected on the front-end menu.
Instant checkout with the Fast Cart option will enable customers to book their order without being redirected to the cart or checkout page. The customer can enter a promo code for their order and instantly checkout with payment options like PayPal, etc.
You can cross-sell your best-selling products by displaying them in the customer’s cart. The suggestion box will allow customers to directly add these items to their cart.
You can set a maximum order limit for each time slot so that you are not overwhelmed by orders. This is optional and is set as empty on default settings.
You can enable the tip option and allow customers to add a tip to their orders. Admin can add labels and set predefined amounts for customers to select. You can also enable the option to enter custom values.
You can add properties or details to any product on the menu (e.g., Cheese – 5g). Food properties will show up on the restaurant menu’s product popup.
You can add new delivery options to your restaurant’s menu – Takeaway and Dine-in. The Takeaway option will allow the customer to book a prepared meal, while Dine-in will enable the customer to book a dining seat at your restaurant.
Rearrange or shuffle products on your menu as per your requirement. This functionality allows you to bring the newest or best-selling food item to the top of the defined category.
Mini-Carts allow customers to track their orders without leaving the shopping process. They can also increase or decrease the number of items in the cart.
Restaurant for WooCommerce gives you the option to exclude (hide) any product from your food menu by entering their product ID in the exclude tab of the menu’s customization options. You can hide products when they’re unavailable and unhide them at your convenience.
You can create different menus with different products and categories (Chinese, fast food, etc.) and display them using their unique shortcode. The shortcode can display the menu on any page or post.
Selecting the standard mini-cart style allows you to display a simple and elegant small box on the right side of your website. The mini-cart shows the order summary of the user. The Sliding mini-cart style allows you to display the user’s items in a slider that will extend from the right side of the screen.
Enabling the “Delivery” option gives you access to add delivery options and their respective prices (e.g., free delivery, express delivery, etc.) on the front-end mini-cart widget and checkout. These options will be available only after the user adds an item to their cart.
Set the daily opening and closing time for your restaurant so that your customers can see the restaurant’s status (open or closed) before ordering.
You can add holiday dates and messages to your restaurant’s schedule. You can select multiple dates through the date range picker.
Adding multiple time slots for each day enables you to limit or divide your hours of operation into numerous shifts.
You can change the view of the products and categories with two style options: List view or grid view.
You can choose to display your menu filters on the top or left side of the menu. These customization options allow you to provide a unique look that can consequently increase your website’s conversion rate.
