Treatmo Puts Power in The Hands of Food Makers
Ship, deliver, or offer pick-up? Treatmo mobile order and pay app makes it easy to do business.
The demand for better for you food and greater access to it has created many opportunities for innovative food makers to make delicious food and beverages with healthful ingredients and sell it by whatever method makes sense. This can be shipping, local delivery, pick-up, and/or from a physical store or retail outlet. Making a product available through one or many access points helps more people get to it faster.
With so many talented seasoned and new chefs bringing great products to market and shaking up the status quo, the benefit to consumers is great. Healthier food, made more locally, which is in many cases more nutritious when from local farms, is a huge benefit to consumers who may be tired of the limited and stale options on the shelf at the grocery store.
Treatmo's new app helps customers reach this new food from rising and established makers and helps food makers sell by any method they wish to employ. The user-friendly mobile app lets customers place an order and then select how their preferred method of receiving the product. Shipping and delivery fees and details are available up front in a tap. This gives food makers a platform to take orders conveniently, creates faster access for customers, and makes repeat orders as easy as pie. Here are four ways food makers can sell on Treatmo.
Pop Up Markets and Events
Many food makers like to attend pop-up markets, events and festivals to get the word out about their new product. Treatmo creates greater visibility of these events for customers. Viewable as "Nearby" in the app and attached to the store front of products, customers can see locations and shop for pick up or get location details to visit and explore. The app displays event, times, and map for customers to get to your food faster.
Food and Beverage Delivery
If you prepare fresh food for delivery in your local area, Treatmo makes it easy to take orders and set delivery range. For small businesses starting out that want to manage their own delivery instead of using a service like Postmates, Favor or Uber, Treatmo makes controlling costs associated with delivery more manageable and makes it a branded event with your company details.
Shipping Across the U.S.
Do you make an amazing packaged food product (CPG) such a barbecue sauce, sauerkraut, or chocolate? Taking orders for shipment on Treatmo is easy and efficient. Setting up your selling page or digital store front takes less than ten minutes from registration to the addition of the first few products.
When you receive an order, you get an email with the items purchased, shipping charges applied, and mailing address. From the portal, you can check off completed orders and modify charges if needed. If setting up shipping on a website store has been difficult, Treatmo will become your best friend. There are no apps or plug-ins to install and payment is direct to you instead of to a PayPal account or third-party digital wallet service.
If you've moved into your own physical store-front, give customers ordering convenience and short lines to order and pay at a register with Treatmo. Customers see the full menu and can place an order and pay in store or remotely with the app. This eliminates, card swipe, punch cards (through digital loyalty) and the exchange of change. Your staff can instead have a more authentic conversation with customers that does not revolve around the exchange of money. A more seamless interaction removes subtle friction that will never be missed and improves customer satisfaction and business process.
