Apps could save event food industry post Covid

July 17, 2020 Apps No Comments Email Email

The true impact of Covid-19 has been deep and diverse, with the event industry, in particular, taking a significant blow.

Restrictions, social distancing and the overheads that accompany this industry have brought a cloud of uncertainty, but there is new hope on the other end of this pandemic. Let’s review the app that is driving the future of the event food industry, and why these models support the new world that we are moving towards.

Introducing Snackr

Snackr entered the event food industry without warning, crafted by mobile app developer Dreamwalk. Both simple and revolutionary, Snackr has left food retailers and customers wondering why this hasn’t happened sooner and how this game-changer will get the event food industry back in action before too long. Food delivery is no new innovation, sure. Although where Snackr differentiates from those food delivery services is that it exists solely within a venue environment. Missing a quarter of the game or an opening act is a painful pastime for anyone who attends an event, but now it doesn’t need to be endured with users ordering through the Snackr app and having the participating food outlets bringing their meal and refreshments to their exact seat number. No lines, no missing out, and no unnecessary contact.

Benefits to the consumer

The unfortunate spread of Covid-19 can largely be attributed to consumers going about their business and not abiding by social distancing either by negligence or no other option available to them. Beyond the obvious benefit of convenience and practicality, consumers will be able to avoid contact from queuing up for drinks and food, and can actually stay stationed at their dedicated seating area which will be planned in such a way that groups sit together and not shoulder to shoulder with other consumers they don’t know. Queensland stadiums have opened up again to consumers by establishing strict protocols, restrictions and capped crowds, proving that the right planning and technology can get us back to doing what we love without breaking the rules.

Another consideration is the ease and filtering process that Snackr provides, saving consumers from walking from one outlet to another to see what’s on offer and having social contact that could have been avoided. Instead, consumers can now peruse, choose and place an order from their assigned seat.

Benefits to food retailers

Events and venues have not been able to press on as they draw a large number of people and social distancing cannot always be respected under these circumstances. When countries and cities start to return to a new normal, these venues will start to operate again and apps like Snackr and smart operations will be the driving force that makes this possible. Just like consumers, the food outlets themselves are also benefiting from social distancing and need to be protected in these event environments. 

With apps like Snackr, food outlets can essentially become a kitchen with limited to no service contact, so that they are only in the company of their colleagues and able to retain a safe working environment. When the order is prepared, there is only one individual delivering this order and can be equipped with the right protective equipment and procedures that are not possible when serving one customer one after another. Another consideration is that Snackr is a cashless system, and Covid-19 has certainly signalled a future that is moving away from cash.

The event industry is not over, but Covid-19 has forced it to adapt to a more measured and practical operation. Vaccine or not, it’s safe to say that consumers and food retailers will operate differently from this point forward, and smart event food apps are going to get venues open quicker.
