You have better things to do than worry about whether or not you have enough food prepared and merchandised. With Hot Stuff Pizza’s patent-pending technology, iGnG or Intelligent Grab n Go, people in the foodservice industry can be confident their foodservice program is running smoothly, their data is accurate, employees are productive and profits are maximized.
Leaving dollars on the table no longer exists with iGnG scanner and printer capabilities. Because foodservice staff scans each item as it is produced or wasted, time stamping each item, dissecting what products to have available at what time is solved. Are there customers in your store when those items are being made? iGnG solves that too, by revealing the number of consumers coming through your doors with Hot Stuff’s Wi-Fi enabled traffic counters. By using the comprehensive data iGnG provides on a daily basis, store employees are learning the right products to put out at the right time, which helps manage waste.
Not sure your employees will be able to use this valuable information? That’s where Hot Stuff’s extraordinary and unmatched support comes into play. In Idaho Falls, ID, the Franchisee and the company’s CFO sat down with National Franchisee Trainer Chad Hall to learn how to use My Orion Foods Dashboards. “We loved seeing the conversion dashboard, where the availability is overlaid on the traffic data,” says Jess Berry, Sunnyside Travel Plaza. iGnG’s Store Scorecard tool is the perfect way to see an overall view of your store’s performance. Thanks to color coding, you’ll know immediately what’s being effective and what needs more focus.
Managing waste is what helps increase profits. Learning to digest the information iGnG reveals is how each location will turn waste into revenue. By taking a closer look at this technology, you’ll see how it is already reducing waste. In Roseau, MN at the Holiday Stationstore, waste was at 11% in February. For three weeks in a row, Franchise Business Consultant Scott Heilman visited this location to review the data iGnG was supplying the Store Manager and uncovered where waste was out of sync. After deciding to focus on a particular day-part and adjusting accordingly, waste dropped to 7%. Proof that awareness of waste – and at what times it was occurring – made making adjustments to match traffic a cinch.
However, each store is different. While the Holiday Stationstore in Roseau, MN is an existing location, new to iGnG, there are many new locations where a fear of initial waste is on a Store Owner’s mind. That was the case in Hazard, KY, so Franchise Business Consultant Gordon King used iGnG to combat that fear and help Campbell’s BP Store Owner, Eddie Campbell devise a strategy for dealing with initial waste. “With the iGnG scanner, and Wi-Fi traffic counters, we were able to isolate our location’s peaks and valleys and set up an accurate, realistic plan for controlling waste from the start,” says Campbell. He went on to say, “I was able to make intelligent decisions about hours of operation and staffing levels, and the evidence to back those decisions up. I wish my other vendors would support my business the way Hot Stuff Pizza has supported me so far.”
