Whip Your Restaurant Loyalty Program Into Shape

restaurant loyalty program

Restaurants come in many shapes and sizes: full-serve, quick-serve, bar, fast food, pizzeria, cafe, bakery... But one thing they all have in common is a hunger for repeat guests and loyal customers.

Even before restaurant technology software became available, restaurants have been deploying creative restaurant loyalty programs. Punch cards? You bet. Chalkboard specials for members? You got it.

But now, when your restaurant loyalty program can integrate with your restaurant POS system, there are so many more opportunities to attract and retain loyal customers. Guests can opt in during the payment process. They can track upcoming rewards and points online and through their mobile phone. And as your restaurant loyalty program grows, you can track loyalty sales right in your POS reporting.

Whip your restaurant loyalty into shape. Check out these statistics below on how a good restaurant loyalty program can make your restaurant great.
