Our team are proud to share that we won the FWD Gold Medal Award for Digital Innovation at the annual awards evening, which took place at Old Billingsgate last night.
JJ were recognised for supporting restaurants and takeaways to move online during the pandemic with it’s restaurant website businesses, FOODit.
“Moving from a restaurant concept to an online takeaway or delivery is a significant transition and not an easy one to make in the middle of a global pandemic,” said our Chief Technology Officer, Mick Dudley. “Our team had the technology and know-how to help,” he added.
Operators were up and running in as little as 24-hours with their own independent, online ordering websites.
Education and Support
In addition to offering the software, our team used their 33-years’ experience in the takeaway market to go the extra mile to ensure that restaurants were fully supported.
E-Guides were developed and shared by email and social media to help businesses to learn everything from marketing food online to high-margin dishes that travel well.
We also developed a ‘Navigating the Lockdown’ YouTube series, to highlight the businesses that were successfully making the transition.
The judges from the awards commented “JJ used it’s tech company FOODit to help restaurants launch their own websites in the early weeks of lockdown. With it’s fixed commission FOODit helped hospitality customers operate profitably and sustainably online.
It enabled restaurants to print their own QR codes to use on tables and menus so customers could order and pay online, contact free.”
By investing in promoting and developing FOODit, we were able to offer the total support package for independent restaurants and takeaways at a critical time.
A huge thank you to Mick and the FOODit team for providing our customers with this technology, and working so hard throughout the pandemic. This award goes to you.
