Pre-order services are now being touted as ‘essential’ services for the commercial success of hospitality, food and events management businesses. Proponents argue that by allowing customers to book, order and pay in advance, both customers and businesses benefit.

Businesses benefit from the increased efficiency of their operations (customers are not standing in queues) and from the additional sales opportunities this creates.
