Zuppler Launches Menu Anywhere On-Premise Contactless Ordering Solution for the Food Service Industry

Integrated Technology Platform Powers Restaurants, Hotels, Hospitals, Schools, Cafeterias and Entertainment Venues - Everywhere Menus are Provided - to Serve Food Safely

CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. - May 26, 2020 - (Newswire.com)

​​​​​Zuppler, a global software and services company focused on empowering solutions for the food services industry, today launched Menu Anywhere On-Premise Contactless Ordering on the Zuppler “Menu Anywhere” Platform, offering an on-premises contactless ordering solution for the $900 billion US food service industry. With applications for restaurants, hotels, hospitals, educational institutions, live events – everywhere menus are provided – this new offering limits contacts between guests, wait-staff and the kitchen, allowing customers to use their mobile device to engage with digitally-enabled, dynamic menus that send orders directly to the kitchen, as well as pay their bills, bringing a much-desired, heightened level of safety to guests and staff.

Menu Anywhere On-Premise enables a personalized and highly interactive experience allowing customers to track the status of their orders, see prior orders and favorite items; while providing dining establishments the ability to serve guests with limited staff, update menus and specials in real-time, capture order history, encourage guests to enroll in loyalty programs, and allow for more efficient operations.

“As restaurants, hotels, schools, live events and workplaces return in stages across the country, we know that the reimagined dine-in experience for millions of consumers will require significant change. We are excited to add this new on-premise innovation to Zuppler’s “Menu Anywhere” offerings to power food service operators with a safe, secure, personalized and innovative menu tool that gives consumers what they desperately want: a return to good food with the experience of eating outside the home in a safe manner,” said Shiva Srinivasan, Founder and CEO.

Mr. Srinivasan continued, “Menu Anywhere On Premise is scalable, can be adapted to different vertical markets and can operate in many environments. We customize the ordering process in a number of exciting ways that enhance the experience for consumers and give greater control and valuable information to food service providers. Today’s launch is a natural extension of our current offerings, and is entirely driven by the needs of our clients.” 

“As our business starts to open post Covid-19, we were comfortable to manage our ‘to-go’ orders but were getting concerned about dine-in orders. The contactless dine-in product from Zuppler will solve this concern and help us manage the expectations of our customers around safety,” said Keith Pascal, partner at Act III Holdings and investor in Boston-based Life Alive Organic Café

Gordon Food Service, the largest family-managed broadline foodservice distribution company in North America, works closely with Zuppler to identify emerging needs within the foodservice industry. As foodservice operators began to reopen, the need to replace physical menus with digital, contactless alternatives quickly emerged.  “Zuppler has been an extraordinary partner. Their food ordering system has provided our customers with immediate solutions to support their business in a rapidly changing environment,” said Bill Balke, Director of Customer Marketing, Gordon Food Service.

In addition to serving 15,000 restaurants and food services clients across the globe, Zuppler enjoys important partnerships with leading transactions processor Worldpay (acquired by FIS in 2019) and Rewards Network, a provider of loyalty-based marketing and financing services to the restaurant industry.

“We think that in addition to delivering safety, Menu Anywhere On-Premise establishes the baseline for the next phase in dining hospitality, with more options, more flexibility, more control and more engagement with customers. In this way we help deepen the relationship and trust between guests and food service provider,” said Srinivasan.

Zuppler is a global software and services company focused on empowering solutions for the food services industry, offering Menu Anywhere, a complete online ordering platform for restaurants, caterers, groceries, universities, hospitals, hotels, sports stadiums and delivery services. Headquartered in Conshohocken, PA, Zuppler has additional offices in Romania and India. The Zuppler team has launched thousands of dynamic online ordering menus for brands across the US, Canada, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Zuppler also integrates with Google, and the leading delivery, POS, loyalty and payment providers.

China says US has 'weaponized' visas to target exchanges

Jul 15, 2020

BEIJING — China on Wednesday accused the U.S. of having "weaponized" the issuance of visas following the reported inability of a top Chinese space program official to obtain permission to travel to a key conference in Washington.

HONG KONG — A homemade, remote-controlled bomb intended to "kill or to harm" riot control officers was detonated as they deployed against renewed violence in Hong Kong over the weekend, police said Monday, in a further escalation of destructive street battles gripping the business hub. The "loud thud" Sunday night close to riot officers who had been clearing away a protester-built road block marked the first known use of an explosive device during protests that started in June over a contested extradition bill and have snowballed into an anti-government, anti-police and anti-China movement. "It exploded less than 2 meters (yards)...

Jul 15, 2020

BEIJING — Asian stock markets have risen after Washington and Beijing announced a truce on tariff hikes in a trade war. Benchmarks in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Seoul advanced. Japanese markets were closed for a holiday. President Donald Trump agreed Friday to put off planned tariff hikes this week on Chinese goods in a fight over Beijing's trade surplus and technology plans. In exchange, he said China would buy American farm goods. But the two sides reported no progress on basic disputes that sparked the 15-month-old fight that threatens global economic growth. Friday's truce "has simply temporarily halted the escalation...

Jul 15, 2020

HONG KONG — Apple became the latest company targeted for Chinese pressure over protests in Hong Kong after the ruling Communist Party's main newspaper criticized the tech giant Wednesday for a smartphone app that allows activists to report police movements. HKmap.live, designed by an outside supplier and available on Apple Inc.'s online store, "facilitates illegal behavior," the People's Daily said in a commentary. "Is Apple guiding Hong Kong thugs?" the newspaper said. Beijing has pressed companies including Hong Kong's Cathay Pacific Airways to take the government's side against the protests, which are in their fourth month. Apple didn't immediately respond...
