In the age of technology, businesses are revamping their websites and equipping their presence on social networking sites with unique content and options to attract customers.
In Arizona, a new trend has been added to the list of digital business tactics. A few restaurants in Phoenix are now offering online reservation option in form of a ticket.
Dr. Samantha Wu reserved her table for two at Tuck Shop by visiting the restaurantâ€™s website, tuckinphx.com, and she paid $30 online which was then used to cover her food bill.
â€œBy putting money down, itâ€™s almost like a contract,â€ Wu told The Republic. â€œYouâ€™re showing up at this time to eat, and the restaurant makes (a table) available to eat at that time. Youâ€™ve put a deposit down, and both sides are honoring it.â€
Tuck Shop among many other restaurants are adopting to the Web-based ticketing system. The main goal said to be behind the online reservation system is to make it easy for guests to book a table at a full-service restaurant.
This option is great for those who dislike waiting in long lines after landing at their favorite diner and itâ€™s a great way for restaurant owners to manage the rush of foodies.
Only time will tell how the ticket-to-dine trend fairs as an up and coming online business strategy.
