Partnerships matter when it comes to meeting or beating customer demand according to Tacoma, WA based Foodservice Solutions®, Grocerant Guru® Steven Johnson. In 2018 you will see more and more restaurant brands drive incremental sales through qualitative partnerships edifying the brand with customers.
Portillo’s, launched a delivery service that is now available at 94 percent of its locations nationwide in a partnership with DoorDash, the on-demand restaurant delivery platform. Through the partnership, drivers on the DoorDash platform will fulfill delivery orders placed through both Portillo’s and DoorDash’s respective websites and mobile apps. Customers can visit portillos.com to find the delivery location nearest to them.
Portillo’s CEO Keith Kinsey stated “From our unique ordering system, to our double drive-thru lanes staffed with outside employees, Portillo’s has consistently innovated our systems to provide our guests with convenient ways to enjoy our iconic menu items. It was important that we partner with a company that could support Portillo’s high-volume restaurants, especially through our lunch and dinner service. DoorDash gives us flexibility and reliability to give our customers the convenience they want and the quality they have come to expect from Portillo’s. We are thrilled to roll out this service at locations nationwide.”
Portillo’s partnership with DoorDash continues its long history of using innovative technology to make it quick and easy for customers to order their food. It was just last year that Portillo’s partnered with Olo to launch online ordering via website and mobile app. The Portillo’s app is available for download online via iTunes or Android. All orders incur a $5 delivery fee. Where are you customers are you reaching them?
