  • What are the advantages of increasing order pickups vs increasing order deliveries?
    We don't claim superiority; instead, we offer distinct advantages that can significantly boost restaurant profitability. Consider this: when restaurants serve meals in-store, their profit margins can soar up to 69% of the total check, but plummet to 39% for the same order via third-party apps. Typically, restaurants shell out 10 to 25% of each order to third-party delivery apps, all while relinquishing control over valuable customer data. Enter The Yummy Box, crafted to liberate restaurant operators from outdated staffing models and empower them with technology to revamp their digital strategies. Our innovative technology not only streamlines takeout processes but also enhances customer satisfaction by providing a consistent and convenient experience for busy patrons. Moreover, The Yummy Box simplifies the process for delivery giants like Uber Eats, DoorDash, and GrubHub to collect orders from restaurants, further optimizing operational efficiency. It's not about being better; it's about offering tailored solutions that cater to the unique needs of restaurants, ultimately driving profitability and customer satisfaction.
  • What is the userflow for my customer with The Yummy Box?
    1. Customers place an order on your website, app, or third-party service. The page will display Yummy Box pickup instructions. 2. Customers receive an SMS message when their order is ready for pickup. 3. Upon receiving the SMS, customers reply with 'OMW,' triggering a box status update for your front-of-house (FOH) staff. Simultaneously, customers receive a one-time verification code. 4. Customers input their one-time verification code at the kiosk when arriving at the restaurant. 5. The kiosk displays the corresponding box number and PIN code. 6. Customers input the provided code, unlock the box, retrieve their order, and depart in 20 seconds or less. This streamlined process ensures efficient order pickup while communicating clearly between customers and restaurant staff.
  • Do you allow Bluetooth unlocking of your lockers?
    Our KitLock smart locks offer a unique advantage: they don't rely on Bluetooth for unlocking. Instead, customers can conveniently access their orders by entering a randomly generated code on the Smart Locks displayed at the kiosk during pickup. What sets our systems apart is our bilateral communication approach. Utilizing patented technology, customers can seamlessly interact with restaurants via text messages, while simultaneously updating order statuses on our web app. This enables restaurant front-of-house staff to efficiently monitor all box statuses on a single screen, enhancing operational efficiency and customer satisfaction.
  • Why do we use Smart Locks vs. Bluetooth, Enable Locks, or Automated Electric Strike Cylindrical Locksets?
    When comparing options, the advantages of retaining our electronic smart locks far outweigh any potential drawbacks of switching to automated Electric Strike Cylindrical Locksets with bluetooth capabilities. Removing smart locks necessitates a complete hardware redesign to accommodate electric strike locksets, introducing wiring and additional technological components. This contradicts our sustainability focus by increasing energy usage. We've opted for electronic smart locks due to their offline capabilities and seamless upgradability with new releases, guaranteeing our customers always have access to the latest hardware. Even during power outages or Wi-Fi disruptions, The Yummy Box remains accessible, ensuring no orders get trapped. The last thing anyone wants is a customer's order stuck in a box, inaccessible. With easily replaceable parts, we can effortlessly upgrade The Yummy Box with the latest technological advancements, all while maintaining a technician-free system for hassle-free maintenance.
  • Does the Yummy Box have heating and cooling capabilities?
    Yes, The Yummy Box features well-insulated compartments similar to a pizza bag, with Plymouth foam insulation used by companies like Hello Fresh, ensuring food stays fresh. Additionally, our software includes a feature called "Freshness Alert." This valuable data is stored on your administrative account to track how long orders remain inside The Yummy Box. It's also accessible on your FOH Dashboard for a complete view of your takeout operation. If an order exceeds the Freshness zone, your FOH staff can choose to remove it from The Yummy Box, ensuring quality control and customer satisfaction. Important Note: Our design better caters to a wide range of food & beverage temperatures; we substituted heating and cooling controls with high-quality insulation. Orders placed inside The Yummy Box will remain fresher than if left on a counter or shelved in ambient temperatures and receive better temperature accommodations than if placed in a hot compartment with hot and cold food/beverages or vice-versa.
  • What locker sizes are available?
  • What type of to-go packaging should I use?
    When considering takeout orders and packaging, it's essential to prioritize food safety and quality. Our data indicates that customers typically pick up their orders within 12 minutes. Many restaurants are adopting newer technologies and packaging solutions to better insulate their to-go orders for off-premises consumption. Some use triple-layer packaging, including black to-go containers, foil wrapping, and plastic bags, to keep food warm or cold during transit. Combining this advanced packaging with our insulated boxes ensures food remains fresh upon delivery. Given the success of these strategies, we advise restaurants to invest in to-go containers designed to preserve food temperatures and facilitate safe transport for takeout and delivery orders. By prioritizing quality packaging, restaurants can uphold food safety standards and enhance the overall customer experience. Side Note: To accommodate mixed temperatures in one compartment, we recommend Temperature Isolation techniques, such as securely packaging items and positioning them strategically within the container

  • Does the doors of your Simplifed Smart Lock open and close automatically?
    Having doors that automatically open is something we favor and have communicated to our smart lock partner. Since COVID-19, they've developed new NFC enabled smart locks similar to Apple Pay; the challenge is that it requires the use of smart cards for access, which doesn't complement The Yummy Box technology or process. The Yummy Box doors can be quickly closed with a single finger, elbow, or even a hip bump. On Version 3, we removed the soft-close latches to make this happen. The closing of the doors sounds like a refrigerator closing.
  • Stripe Mobile Payments
    The Yummy Box application uses Stripe Connect Standard to process your customer’s mobile payments. Stripe charges 2.9% + 30¢ per successful card charge. Regular ACH deposits take 2 business days. Stipe charges $0.25 per payout (deposit). Instant payouts arrive in minutes and cost 1.5% (minimum of $0.50). clevtech charges $0.00 to process payments or payout. When you start processing live payments from your customers with Stripe, you will not receive your first payout until 7–10 days after your first successful payment is received. The first payout usually takes a little longer in order to establish the Stripe account. Subsequent payouts are then processed according to your account’s payout schedule. By default, Stripe automatically creates payouts of your available account balance based on the schedule specified in the Dashboard. The schedule used is dependent on your country and whether your business operates in a higher-risk industry.
