Video Chat Takeout Ordering for Restaurants

“How can I, as a restaurant, video chat with my customers to take their order?”

This is a proof-of-concept, using freely available technology, to create a solution which allows foodservice operators to engage customers face-to-face… virtually.

In this video Dennis CMO Luke LaBree, shows how Zoom could be used as a platform for taking customer orders by video chatting with them.

How does it work? Aside from all the technical things that could complicate real-world use, it’s actually quite simple…

    1. Sign up for Zoom and create a Personal Meeting ID (PMI) which your restaurant would use consistently – like a phone number.
    2. Start a Zoom “meeting” and leave it running everyday while your restaurant is open.
    3. Customers use the free Zoom app on their device to “call” your PMI and place an order.
If you’re ready to try something completely outside of the norm for foodservice, but inline with public sentiment during the coronavirus outbreak, this is it!
