Tookan’s revolutionary delivery management solution links up with this free online ordering alternative to help your restaurant provide seamless delivery, allowing you to just cook and your customers to just eat.
If you’re in the restaurant business, online ordering is probably going to be your major source of revenues. But with the big food delivery apps eating into your profits with their high commissions, margins are slender as ever. All that is going to change as Tookan collaborates with this online ordering system to ensure restaurant owners can set up their online experience in a matter of minutes with no setup fees, commissions, or binding contracts.
Tookan’s expertise at operational efficiency helps streamline the entire process of online ordering and food delivery, centralizing the tasks of scheduling deliveries, while collating data in one place for easy analysis. Furthermore, Tookan allows restaurants to inform drivers of new deliveries in real time and allows restaurant owners to use a branded app rather than having to develop their own app from scratch.

Now, let’s order
Your business is now ready to start taking online orders from customers. All orders coming online are added automatically to your Tookan account.
The customer selects their order from the online menu available on the website, Facebook page, or app of your restaurant. You can create your online menu on the restaurant web admin area -> “tab setup” -> “menu setup”..
After entering their details name, address, contact details, and payment method, the customer finalizes their order in the checkout counter.
Accept the order
As soon as the customer places their order, a quick notification with the order details is sent to the business manager of your restaurant, awaiting their confirmation.
As soon as you accept the order, it is added instantly to your Tookan account, where it’s automatically assigned to an agent, whose progress you can track to ensure its delivery. With auto-assignment, the entire process, from ordering to delivery, is completely automated. This way, you can rest assured that all your orders are sent to the agent who can deliver them the quickest. Alternatively, you can also use your Tookan dashboard to assign an agent to execute a particular order. You can also access the order details anytime in the future by clicking on Details option under your order number.
Just like that, you can get the best out of both businesses simultaneously to help your restaurant grow without the fear of paying expensive commissions to food apps. With the partnership between Tookan and GloriaFood, the future of food delivery is yours.
