Mobile messaging for takeaways

How to increase orders with text messaging

Text messaging has really found its place in the fast food industry, proving it’s a quick, targeted and powerful tool to generate repeat orders at takeaways and fast food outlets.

On the most basic level, targeted SMS messaging allows takeaway and fast food businesses to distribute their most up to date menus to eager customers, through the use of SMS attachment functionality. Following from that, it’s also extremely easy for businesses to design and distribute special offers and promotions through SMS messaging specific to business needs.

The high open rate of SMS messages allows businesses to be confident of high uptake, while the ease with which personalised promotional codes can be included within SMS messages makes these deals very easy for consumers to redeem.

In this way text communication can strengthen a takeaway’s brand, by rewarding loyal customers and keeping the public at large informed of their services in an affordable and effective manner.
