Frequently asked questions
How can I be sure not to cannibalize my existing sales?
Unlike a normal sale where all customers are exposed to it and it is on a range of items, Feedback sales are set for a limited amount of quantity, they DO NOT occur at the point-of-sale, and they will be on different items each day. Due to the unpredictable nature of the promotion normal customers cannot rely on it to get the items they want, when they want them.
I do not have any waste (or it is VERY little)
At Feedback, we believe that EVERY bit counts. 1 muffin a week or pounds of food a day - we do not care - we want to help everyone become a zero-waste food vendor.
What if we don't know how much leftover food we'll have?
The greatest part of our platform is the flexibility it provides. We have some partners who are able to set a baseline amount of food they throw out each day, and add and subtract from there. But we also have partners who keep their baseline at 0 meals / day, and only adjust when they have a better idea of how much leftover they may have. When an update is made and leftover food becomes available, we then notify our users so that they can come by and collect that food before closing. We give you the control, and there are no commitments or set-up fees to deter you from signing up and trying it out.
Who are your customers?
Feedback’s user base is built up of mostly 16-35 year old’s, with a heavier distribution of University students and young professionals. They are the ones who care most about the environment and love supporting our brand for more than just the discount and convenience we can offer them. Remember, everyone who uses Feedback has a smartphone and credit card, and thus you do not need to worry about having a very different consumer walk in your door.
How much work is involved on the restaurant end to complete an order?
Nothing! All you have to do is ask to view the customer's mobile receipt, and then prepare the food that they ordered, or allow them to select from a pre-prepared item.
Will someone help me determine how to calculate what I can afford to offer at a discount?
Yes! We use a tried and tested calculation to ensure that we are optimizing your bottom line and increasing your profit while still offering food at a price-point that will drive the most customer traffic and incremental revenue.
How do I keep track of orders purchased through the app?
As orders are placed you will get a notification. In addition to the notification you will be able to see orders using your end of the app - the menu item(s), name of the customer, and pickup window will all be discplayed!
