Marketing

got2go2

www.got2go2.com

Because of COVID-19, got2go2 is offering help to restaurants to be found for the new services customers are looking for. In April, it was crucial to be found for offering contactless curbside pickup and delivery. In May, as restaurants offered dine-in service again, it was crucial to also be found for offering extra spacing between tables with occupancy limits, disposable menus, and rigorous sanitation procedures. Customers' interests will continue to evolve as COVID-19 executive orders are updated and that market forces change. 

got2go2 enables you to be found immediately for the changes you make to your restaurant, messaging your keywords, special offers, and even your hours, or whether you are open, or temp shut. You can point your new customers on got2go2 to other online sites you have, e.g. your website, your social media sites, your online ordering page, and just the review site(s) that has your best reviews.

Quikstone Capital Solutions

https://www.QuikstoneCapital.com

Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, Quikstone Capital Solutions has continued to support hardworking merchants across the country with easy, fast, and flexible working capital. Now that many restaurants are reopening, and may need support, they want customers to know that they are here and ready to help.

For the past 15 years, more than 10,000 merchants have grown their businesses with funding from Quikstone. With a short application, no hidden fees, approval in 24 hours, and cash in the bank in 2-5 business days, they can get your merchants the working capital they need quickly and easily. With an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau, nearly 80 percent of their merchants are repeat customers because of their outstanding service and support.

With Quikstone’s QuikStart program, there are no application fees or hidden costs. The process is simple. Funding amounts range from $5,000 to $250,000. Payment is automatic and flexible. It's a small portion of daily credit card sales, and it adjusts with card volume.

Restaurants can use Quikstone's working capital for just about any business need. They can create a new marketing campaign, update their menu, increase inventory, develop an online ordering and delivery system, buy, replace or repair equipment, or expand outside seating to allow for social distancing.

Quikstone is not a bank, so they can provide direct funding even if a merchant has been turned down in the past by traditional sources. While a commercial loan requires a fixed monthly payment, Quikstone payment amounts are flexible, they fluctuate with card sales volume, and that’s so important for restaurants during these uncertain times.

At Quikstone, they know that in these challenging times, we're all in this together.

Sanitation & Disinfection

Alsco Linen and Uniform Service 

www.alsco.com

Alsco has always strived to meet the emerging needs of our Texas customers during difficult times whether that be a natural disaster or a worldwide pandemic. Today is no different. Alsco is proud to continually provide the necessary products and services available for our customers to ensure a clean and safe environment for dining guests.

As restaurants begin to reopen, it is important to consider that tablecloth surfaces are five times cleaner than bare tables and are touched only at the corners by the server laying the cloth and by the immediate patrons. Bare tables can be a breeding ground for all types of microscopic germs. NSF- certified hygienically clean table linens or placemats from Alsco can minimize bacteria and prevent the spread of illness.

In addition, NSF-certified hygienically clean tablecloths and placemats can also help identify the tables to be used for social distancing in a restaurant. Placemats can be used to seat guests farther apart at the same table or counter while providing a welcoming and clean table setting.

Alsco offers several specialized services for all industries that can help you with your recovery strategy by creating a clean, safe environment for your guests:

  • Reusable Alsco Masks and gloves that meet CDC guidelines.
  • Sanitizing wipes that can be safely used by your staff on all surfaces and touch points.
  • Floor care that includes mops and mopping solutions to keep your floors clean and safe.
  • Specialty floor mats that have social distancing markings on them.
  • Hand care products like soap, sanitizer and paper towels.
  • Commercial cleaning solutions, including broad-spectrum disinfectant, food-service degreaser and glass cleaner.
  • Hygienically clean uniforms such as MIMIX chef coats, cook shirts and aprons.

As America gets back to work and businesses reopen, providing your employees and guests with a cleaner and safer establishment will be a key part of an economic recovery. Let Alsco help you with that.

Applova Inc. offers order-ahead technologies used by top national restaurant chains available for restaurants of any size. In response to the new normal, they have modified and innovated new touch-free technologies so restaurants can rebound faster and safely, recouping the loss of income.
Since restaurants re-opening, restaurants had to restructure their layout with lesser tables than they used to have, which means severing only 50% than they used to. Their off-premise solutions include curbside pickup services and integrated delivery services for restaurants. They have also introduced a new touch-free dine-in solution for restaurants to provide an excellent guest experience. Dine-in guests can scan the QR menu/digital menu to order with their phone in a few simple clicks.
