Management can be a time consuming and stressful endeavor, and bakeries are no exception. Between labor, software, hardware, customer service, inventory, and more, the time and cost of running a bakery quickly adds up. But worry not—we have a solution.
At Local Express, we can provide you with the tools and technology necessary to streamline management and save money, all while helping you increase sales. So keep reading to find out more about how we can help you increase efficiency and profits.
Save Time and Boost Revenue with Software and Hardware
Software and hardware are seen as expenses, something you might try to cutback on to save money. However, the right hardware and software can actually help you save money—plus boost revenue.
We are proud to provide an assortment of robust, intuitive, and powerful tools for your bakery. These tools are some of the most effective in the industry, and they’re sure to help you save time and increase sales.
For example, our AI merchandising feature can be incredibly beneficial for your time and bottom-line. Instead of spending hours merchandising your baked goods, our powerful AI will make the best decisions possible, saving time and increasing sales.
Another example is our new kitchen display system (KDS). With this system, you can quickly and efficiently process prepared food orders. The system allows for pre-orders, omnichannel sales, and customization options too, ensuring customers get their baked goods exactly how they want while also making life easier for you.
Local Express also includes all the features you’d expect, such as a delivery app with plenty of options like BOPIS and curbside, packaging options like dry ice, loyalty programs, coupons, inventory management software, and much more.
And that’s just the beginning. Our next technology is incredibly powerful and has the potential to help you drastically increase your revenue—kiosks.
How Kiosks Can Drastically Increase Sales
Our kiosks are a remarkably useful and impactful tool for bakeries. Though they can do everything you’d expect like processing orders and accessing information, they can also be a huge boon for sales.
We looked at how our kiosks performed in a few stores, and it’s clear that kiosks help boost sales. Let’s focus on three key areas—sales, order, and average revenue per user (ARPU).
For sales, both stores we looked at had noticeable growth. Store one had a 24% increase in sales over four months, while store two had a whopping 173% over eight months.
Similarly, kiosks had a big impact on orders as well. Store one reported a 24% increase in order value, indicating customers are purchasing more per transaction. Store two experienced a 155% boost in the number of orders over eight months, suggesting kiosks encourage bigger purchases and drive transactions.
Finally, ARPU also saw a smaller but still significant impact. Store one had a 87% increase in only fourth months, and store two had a 39% increase over 14 months.
Based on the compelling results observed in both stores, it’s evident that kiosk implementation magnifies sales, order values, and the average revenue per user. As a bakery owner, that’s an opportunity you don’t want to pass up.
