Snapfinger Inc. has added more than 3,000 independent restaurants to its online and mobile ordering database in the past year. The nationwide restaurant ordering application earned the approval of many major national brands, successfully carrying out more than one million orders a month, and it believes every restaurant owner should maximize these channels if they are operationally sound. As reported by NRA, more than two out of five consumers say they are not dining out or using takeout as often as they would like, but with the industry hopeful about the next 12 months, Snapfinger wants to help independent restaurants be more aggressive with online and mobile marketing.
E-commerce solution provider Kudzu Interactive for the
