Top 10 Hubster features for small restaurants and independent restaurants

Hubster offers restaurant management and optimization solutions for restaurants of all sizes and types. Our delivery tech solutions every type of restaurant: from mom & pop restaurants, to small, independent restaurants, to midsize restaurant groups, to national chains. We work with restaurants across all types: from casual dining to family style, fine dining to fast casual to fast food. And while we offer a solution for every type of restaurant, not every type of restaurant requires the same solution. Today, we are going to focus on which features within Hubster's product suite can help small restaurants and independent restaurants succeed in food delivery.

Beloved small restaurants and independent restaurants choose Hubster to support their food delivery business

We work with small restaurants and independent restaurants across the globe including Floridino’s Pizza & Pasta, Brazilian Bowl, B-Unos and many others. We often hear a few of the same needs from small restaurants and independent restaurants. Small restaurants and independent restaurants are looking for a way to simplify their business. With fewer staff members, having a means of consolidating all of the delivery orders from Deliveroo, Uber Eats, Grubhub and others is critical. Having a way to then look at performance data that’s not overly complicated or time consuming is another key focus for small restaurants and independent restaurants. On the other hand, we work with plenty of small restaurants and independent restaurants who need advice on how to break into the delivery space and increase their sales in spite of commissions. When the team at Hubster begins working with a small restaurant or an independent restaurant, we take the time to understand their business needs: what’s working and what isn’t, where they want to increase efficiency and where they want to grow. From there, we create a solution that’s designed to deliver on exactly their key focus areas.

Tablet chaos is, well, chaos, for all types of restaurants, but particularly for small restaurants & independent restaurants who have smaller teams.

When this is the case, we provide support and partnership to create a delivery strategy that will deliver on exactly your restaurant’s needs. For small and independent restaurants who are signed up for multiple delivery platforms and seeing all those orders in one place, Hubster provides the ability to view performance data across all delivery platforms in a user-friendly dashboard that automatically exports to a single spreadsheet. This makes gaining insight and optimizing performance easier to navigate.
