FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Charlotte, N.C. (Oct. 4, 2017) – To enhance its personalized ToGo service and digital hospitality, Firebirds Wood Fired Grill has established an online ordering platform for all of its locations. Powered by Olo, Firebirds’ easy-to-use online ordering platform provides guests with a straightforward way to order their favorite Firebirds cuisine from the comfort of their smartphone, tablet or desktop, just by visiting firebirdsrestaurants.com.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer ToGo ordering online, making Firebirds more accessible for our guests and giving them the ability to customize their meals, easily order for large groups and even schedule a later time for pick up, all online,” said Firebirds CEO Mark Eason. “As our guest base increases and technology continues to evolve, we plan to grow with them. This new addition to our website pays homage to our longstanding tradition of providing exemplary hospitality, no matter the platform.”
With 60 million users and 200 restaurant brands using their technology, Olo has helped revolutionize the online ordering facet of the restaurant industry. For example, not only does Olo allow Firebirds’ guests to personalize their meals and schedule their preferred time for pick up, but Firebirds now provides a handy group order feature. Boardroom group lunches will no longer require a sign-up sheet or email chain asking for everyone’s food order that inevitably gets misread when the food is ordered. Now, a link will be sent to everyone in the lunch group, which will direct users to select their personal order from Firebirds’ extensive online menu. Each order will automatically be added to the group order, and, within a matter of minutes, the order is ready to be sent.
“Simplifying the process of convenience for guests is the key to success, and Firebirds does a tremendous job of doing just that. We are proud to partner with this fast-growing company and look forward to working together to drive off-premise offerings in a variety of ways,” said Olo Founder & CEO Noah Glass.
