Covid-19 Effects on the Restaurant Customer Experience

The restaurant industry has never seen a shock like the one that has shaken the service industry during the Covid-19 global pandemic. Government shutdowns and social distancing measures have strangled restaurants and service-oriented businesses.

Your staff needs to maintain the Covid-19 mitigation protocols while continuing to take care of the customer’s every need. But how do you know if your team is wearing their masks at all times like required? How do you know if they are keeping your patrons safe?

All of these mandates have made providing exceptional customer service even more difficult. At the same time, they have made customer service that much more important.

To make sure your staff is properly adhering to Covid-19 regulations and making the extra efforts to keep customers happy, turn to restaurant mystery shopping with RBG.

Our team has created Covid-19 strategies to improve the restaurant experience during these unprecedented times.

Online Ordering, Delivery, and Pick-Up Customer Experience

Over the past few years, online ordering has gained popularity. And with the Covid-19 pandemic, restaurants across the country have witnessed a spike in online ordering, delivery, and pick-up.

Once an afterthought, customer service regarding online ordering, delivery, and pick-up has become just as essential as your restaurant’s dine-in service.

Ensuring that the food you’re delivering looks and tastes just like it would for a guest sitting in your restaurant’s dining room is important. And greeting every pick-up customer with a smile builds loyalty.

But how do you know if your staff is maintaining the highest food and customer service standards at all times?

Just like with dine-in scenarios, RBG has created restaurant mystery shopping strategies so you can view the customer experience from their eyes during delivery and pick-up.

Using this information and data, the team creates a plan and strategy to improve your delivery, online ordering, and pick-up procedures.

RBG is the leader in helping restaurants quantify and improve their customer experience both in-person and online.
