Pizza is such a great and versatile food, and many pizza restaurants flourish. Of course, pizza is not the sole reason they do well. Pizzeria owners must be effective leaders and make smart decisions. One key decision is about the type of POS system to use, and there are so many on the market. Researching them may get overwhelming, but one leader in the space is Clover 2. In many ways, this cloud-based system should a good fit for your pizza restaurant. Read on to find out why.
Handles Complicated Pizza Orders
Download the Pizza Builder app for a monthly fee to enable your new clover station to handle complex pizza orders. Need pickup or delivery options? Triple toppings? Half and half with double toppings on one half? The app can do all that. It even handles quarters in addition to halves. It’s great for quick service pizzerias.
Accepts Various Payment Methods
The Clover 2 has fast payment processing, and its display swivels around. Customers can add tips and sign their names onscreen. Perhaps more importantly, the Clover 2 accepts mobile payments and EMV chip cards.
Handles Employee and Administrative Functions
Employees can clock in and out of work with the Clover 2. Plus, the station offers raw ingredient tracking and can work offline.
Helps You Build an Effective Rewards/Loyalty Program
A rewards or loyalty program for your customers comes with multiple benefits. For instance, you can offer discounts or freebies to keep customers coming back to your pizzeria. One freebie example could be a free personal pizza on the customer’s birthday. You can also track customer orders, where they live and other information. This information is a huge boon in your marketing efforts, allowing you to promote your rewards program. Also, by knowing what customers like to order, you’re able to customize their offers and deepen their loyalty to your restaurant.
Receive Insights on Your Sales
Clover 2 uses data from each transaction to boost your sales. For instance, you can track the busiest times for your restaurant and identify the slowest times. To get more revenue during these slow times, you could start a program where customers get 50% off appetizers or save money in some other way. Moreover, you identify your customers’ spending patterns. That helps you bring more customers similar to them into your restaurant. You can also compare how similar restaurants are doing.
Even the weather gets a nod. Are people more likely to visit your restaurant (or less likely) when temperatures are at a certain level? How about when it’s rainy or snowy? Clover Insights helps you figure all that out.
Purchase at Reasonable Prices
The Clover 2 is powerful, no doubt, but is it crazily expensive? Fortunately, no. The hardware retails for about $1,000. (That’s a better bargain in the big picture than leasing the hardware.) Retailers such as merchant solutions even offer specials such as $500 to your business if the retailer can’t show how its offerings would save you money compared to what you currently pay. Take the time to chat with the various retailers to see what advantages they offer, but be confident in the fact that the Clover 2 should work very well for your pizzeria.
