Brand characteristic

“Pizza taxi” refers to a New York-based corporation, Taxi Checker, with its name and the entire brand, creating a one-of-a-kind atmosphere. The American pizza that they serve is based on fresh ingredients - this is the restaurant’s speciality! Ordered meals are delivered by cars that look like New York taxis. There are two restaurants in this chain, both located in Poznan.

Problem

This restaurant provides delivery services and was looking for a method that would help in organising their ownonline orders. Launching the UpMenu system turned out to be the perfect response to this problem and generated outstanding results.

Solution

1. Own online orders

Due to the fact that “Pizza Taxi” had already been offering its own online orders for three years, they could easily observe any increase in the number of orders and profit each year. The results are really impressive. Launching a new sales channel and obtaining access to comprehensive marketing tools also contributed to increased conversion, i.e. greater numbers of people visiting the restaurant website and placing orders.

3. Promotions and discounts online

“Pizza Taxi” knows how important it is to create various promotions and offer discounts to their customers. They are also aware that information about the above should be announced on all their sales channels, both on social media and on the restaurant website with online orders - after all, restaurant online marketing is very important for a restaurant. One of the bonuses that “Pizza Taxi” offers to students is 10% off each order. The promotion is available both at the restaurant and for delivery.

It’s important to note that each discount can be generated in the UpMenu system, so that restaurant customers can enter the discount code in the order form, and their cart will be updated automatically.

4. Restaurant offline marketing

While undertaking a variety of marketing activities, “Pizza Taxi” keeps in mind the importance of promoting their restaurant offline. The restaurant features branded packaging for pizzas with their logo, telephone number as well as the website address that can be used by the customers to place orders. Additionally, the packaging features information about the delivery time to the customers. “Pizza Taxi” also features cars for delivering pizza that are yellow and look like New York taxi cabs.
