Hospitality Technology – Teriyaki Madness Launches Digital Ordering Solution

Hospitality Technology – Teriyaki Madness Launches Digital Ordering Solution

Teriyaki Madness was featured in Hospitality Technology about the new digital ordering system with Olo & Punchh. Read what author, Anna Wolfe, had to say!

Hospitality Technology – Teriyaki Madness Launches Digital Ordering Solution

Hospitality TechnologyAsian fast casual franchise Teriyaki Madness recently launched a digital ordering solution that is integrated into its point-of-sale (POS) system.The fresh Asian fast casual franchise worked with Olo and Punchh to create a digital ordering solution that includes an order-ahead app and started rolling out the solution in June to its 45 locations.

Guests can now order online with the Teriyaki Madness app for in-store pickup. The platform saves the users’ favorite orders and credit card information to simplify reordering. Guests can also order online, but for incentive for them to download the app, they receive a coupon to receive a free regular size bowl with the purchase of another regular size bowl and two fountain drinks.

The app also offers “redeemables” that load into each user’s app that can be used towards mobile or in-store purchases.

Jodi Boyce, vice president of marketing at Teriyaki Madness, says it’s the brand’s first foray into digital ordering.

Before the online ordering and mobile app launched, “The only way for people to order in advance was to call,” explains Boyce. “And the phone ringing is a pain point for franchisees … You have a line of customers, and you can’t answer the phone.”

The new digital solution has “alleviated the amount of calls already,” she adds. Plus when a guest orders online or via the app, there’s increased order accuracy and labor savings.

Teriyaki Madness is known for its bowls that are made-to-order with fresh ingredients. Customers can choose three sizes of bowls, select their protein, vegetables, noodles, rice and select from house-made sauces. With so many options, orders can get complicated.

“Part of our brand are bowls that are made-to-order,” she says. “Every order is different. Now guests can go online themselves and customize their order, what they want and what they don’t want. It’s a great, convenient experience.”

Olo created a seamless ordering process by integrating Teriyaki Madness’ menu into the app, website and the company’s POS provider, Revel.

The Denver-based franchise also works with several third-party delivery services; all of the orders placed through a third-party delivery integrate directly into the POS.

“There’s not one national one that hits all the markets,” says Boyce. “We’ve allowed our shops to work with quite a few. DoorDash, Postmates and Amazon are all integrated with Punchh and Olo, so we’ve alleviated having that extra device (to approve the order and send it to the POS).”

Loyalty Awaits

Punchh developed and designed the app, which also includes a full loyalty program for its users that will launch in early 2019.

“We chose to launch our app in two parts,” Boyce said. The goal was to get employees trained and familiar with the new system before adding on loyalty, which Boyce describes as “more complicated from a training perspective.”

Less than three months after its launch, the preliminary results are impressive. Sales are up 8% year over year and 20% of sales are being place online, Boyce said.

FastCasual: How can a summer salad keep your brand relevant?

FastCasual: How can a summer salad keep your brand relevant?

Summer SaladTeriyaki Madness was featured in FastCasual for our LTO Sesame Asian Yakisoba Salad. Michael Haith discusses customer experience and how TMAD incorporated a summer salad into the mix! Read the full story below!

How can a summer salad keep your brand relevant?

Most people tend to think of (or define) a traditional salad as a bowl of leafy greens and veggies like tomatoes and cucumbers with their favorite bottled dressing drizzled on top. From leafy green garden salads, to toasted croutons in Caesar salad and juicy olives in a Mediterranean Greek salad, to creamy potato and macaroni salad; from healthy to not so healthy, salads can come in all different shapes and sizes and over the years have become a whole trend on their own.

Constructing a salad allows for creativity to run wild in any kitchen, and that’s exactly how the summer LTO Yakisoba Salad at Teriyaki Madness was created. Summer salads provide refreshing and healthy choices at all types of restaurants, whether they’re five-star sit downs or fast casual concepts, during a season that has great opportunity to add to and switch up items on the menu.

Contrary to a typical crunchy, leafy green summer salad, our summer LTO provides yakisoba noodles as the base element, yet similar to a typical salad, it’s packed with all kinds of fresh veggies. The Yakisoba noodle salad gives customers a new healthy option that fits right in with what they’re already familiar with at our shops. Just like the big Teriyaki bowls that have kept customers coming back time and time again, the Yakisoba salad is a large, protein packed bowl with a signature house-made Asian Sesame Dressing mixed in.

While the Yakisoba Salad is a brand-new item with a brand-new sauce, we strategically crafted the menu item so franchisees don’t have to order or stock their stores with any new ingredients. They already have everything in their kitchens, meaning employees and owners already have a basic familiarity with the ingredients in the salad. The Yakisoba Salad is a lower food cost option that is also profitable as an LTO item.

We also recognize that customer experience is just as important as what’s being served and how it tastes. In addition to the summer LTO, the company also launched an app and online ordering system. Technology has become a crucial part of any business or service in today’s market; bringing brands and putting products directly into the consumer’s hands is necessary to engage with customers outside of the store.

The app allows customers to order food for pickup (or delivery in available markets) and save their favorite orders and purchasing information, which makes future mobile orders super easy. The app also has a map and location information for all its restaurants, news about products, offers and promotions, a customer referral program, a link to jobs at Teriyaki Madness and even a link to buy a franchise.

Throughout the summer, customers will have access to exclusive offers and redeemables that can be used on the app and in-store. Incentives to download and use the app will be available to customers who place their first orders and refer others to the app, as well.

It’s important to try new things, such as adding a Yakisoba Salad to your menu, and stay relevant with trends and competition by launching an app, but it’s crucial to recognize your brand and maintain efforts that align with it. Part of this involves honest evaluation of what is and isn’t working, adapting to new trends and customer feedback and staying relevant.

A strong brand is succinct, memorable and consistent. It represents who you are, what you believe in and how you want to be perceived. Teriyaki Madness values bold flavors, big portions and trying new things. Summer 2018 is all about new adventures and honoring what makes the brand so unique.

Mobile AppOn June 6, 2018, TMAD Teriyaki Madness released a mobile app which is available for download nationwide on iTunes or Google Play. The new app allows users to order ahead with their mobile devices for in store pickup (or delivery in applicable markets).

Since the launch of the new app, TMAD has seen a huge increase in sales in the Teriyaki shops across the board. The app has caused an increase in the brand’s Club Mad database by over 10% and over 4000 people have downloaded the app since the launch date on June 6th. The average ticket in shops has increased significantly and sales from the app continue to trend up as awareness increases.

“Our App will add happiness to your life. You can order food, save your favorite orders, redeem great offers (that are only sent to App members!), find location information, learn about new products & news, apply for a job at Teriyaki Madness and more!”
