Foodhub is owned and operated by Touch2Success whose primary business are providing EPOS systems to takeaways across the country.  Foodhub is a secondary product and as such isn’t the main focus of the business and as such they don’t actively advertise the product and rely on merchants spreading the word, as well as a few adverts scattered on the app store.

Takeaway Revolutions invests 80% of our fees back into advertising and as such we can help businesses grow.

Fees and Setup

Foodhub is similar to Takeaway Revolution as they don’t charge commission, however the cost of their platform, which at the point of this publication, is £100 per month with a £150 setup fee, in comparison to Takeaway Revolution’s standard plan at £75 per month with a £150 setup fee.  For users of Foodhub, merchants are expected to use their own devices as no hardware is provided, unlike Takeaway Revolution which can be purchased if required.

The platform

Both Takeaway Revolution and FoodHub offer the ability to edit the menu live, however Takeaway Revolution offers a host of features not found on other platforms such as;

  • The ability to receive orders in your native language, meaning no more need for translators as receipts are also printed in your language. Takeaway Revolution is the first and only provider that offers this unique functionality.

  • Complete menu control;
    • Set menus for certain days

Conclusion

Takeaway Revolution’s platforms gives customers full control over their listing and has more functionality than FoodHub.  Features such as our ability to translate orders, as well as the ability to seamlessly send orders to your drivers at a click of a button.

In terms of price, Takeaway Revolution is half the price of Foodhub and gives you real value for money. Foodhub like Takeaway Revolution, do not charge commission and are the only food ordering platforms on the market.

Finally, if you are looking for a food ordering platform, without the heavy sale of an EPOS system, then Takeaway Revolution is the company for you.  Our business is to provide customers cutting edge technology at a low cost, and with no focus on any other product you can be sure that we aim to provide you the very best service.

Local Eats Group is a franchise product offered at a cost of £6000 to potential entrepreneurs looking to monetise the food ordering industry.  Many franchisees have little experience within the industry and see it as a quick get rich scheme.

Fees and Setup

LocalEats cost you, the merchant, £150 to set up which comes with a hired device that you do not own.  In addition to the set up fees their are other costs that you will find such as their commission of 7.5% which is a lot lower than other platforms but is still a commission charge.  In addition to this merchants are encouraged to invest in their marketing and as such expectations of merchants to advertise the product (invest £1 for every 2-3 orders into social marketing) and badly managed marketing plans leads to a slower uptake in customers moving to the platform.  Takeaway Revolution, does not charge commission and the only fees that you will get are the setup fee of £150 (or £299 if hardware required), and the low monthly cost of £75 which works out at just over £11 per week.  In return, Takeaway Revolution invests 80% of your monthly fees back into advertising the platform and therefore gaining you new customers with no expectations on you advertising the product itself.

The platform

Local Eats has many restrictions, one of which is the area that it is built in, meaning if your customer base is across multiple towns, then you would be required to join up on multiple apps.  This means that the additional fees, ordering machines and menus becomes very hard and unfeasible to manage.  The additional restrictions within the platform is that each app is unique and as such does not communicate with any of the other Local Eats apps, this means that you would need your menu entered onto multiple platforms, different customers on different apps and very time consuming to manage.  You customers also share the same frustrations on these apps as if they move town, or are in a different area would be required to download a different app related to the town and to register again.

In terms of the main platform both Takeaway Revolution and Local Eats offer the ability to edit the menu live, however Takeaway Revolution offers a host of features not found on other platforms such as;

  • The ability to receive orders in your native language, meaning no more need for translators as receipts are also printed in your language. Takeaway Revolution is the first and only provider that offers this unique functionality.
  • Full control of your listing, set headers with offers, load your logo, set your menu style and more
  • Complete menu control;
    • Set menus for certain days
    • Have different offerings throughout the day.  The ability to have a breakfast menu in the morning, lunch menu in the afternoon and dinner for the evening.
    • Change prices/add new food lines plus loads more.
  • No more quiet times;

    • Cutting edge technology allowing you to reduce your quiet times and maximise your sales.

Conclusion

Takeaway Revolution comes out as the best choice if you are a takeaway that operate across multiple towns.  Unlike Local Eats, we live and breath the industry and as such understand the potential issues that you may come across.  We have not bought into an app as the ability to get rich, but are a company that wants to change the industry for good and to provide takeaways a platform that is not only affordable but gives you more features then any other.

Takeaway Revolution’s platforms gives customers full control over their listing and has more functionality than LocalEats.  Features such as our ability to translate orders, as well as the ability to seamlessly send orders to your drivers at a click of a button.

In terms of price, Takeaway Revolution saves your hundreds of pound in fees as we don’t charge commission, or tell you to invest in marketing, as this is all included in the price, along with saving you on average over £600 per month.

Just Eat is the UKs largest food ordering platform and has been the longest standing business within the industry.  The platform itself has grown significantly over the years, and have recently moved into food delivery to compete with the likes of Uber Eats and Deliveroo. As a company, they have a large marketing plan, however this is usually at the cost of local businesses who have been unhappy with the charging structure as well as the loss of control over their business.

Fees and Setup

Just Eat charge £295 plus vat to setup and an ongoing fee of 14% + 50p commission on every order placed through the platform.  Additional charges are placed on the merchant for sponsorship (charged on a Pay-Per-Click model), plus additional costs for delivery.  Takeaway Revolution charges £150 to setup and £75 per month with no additional fees.  Like Just Eat we do offer sponsorship but do not charge on a Pay-Per-Click basis as we believe you shouldn’t have to pay for someone who clicks on your advert and changes their mind.  Our sponsorship fees start from just £50, and increase your conversion ratio without being hit by the Pay-Per-Click Model.  Also from recent research, it is common in the Pay-Per-Click world that competitors will often click on these to increase your cost and to remove you from the top of the list.  Our model, is clean and guarantees that you aren’t going to be hit by high Pay-Per-Click bills.

Just Eat does have a large marketing budget, and power within the market, but at the cost of small businesses.  As such moving from this platform is a big step, and many have tried to move and have reverted back, but Takeaway Revolution can help you finally cut those ties and move onto a better platform without it affecting your business financially.

Takeaway Revolutions costs just £150 to setup, and £75 per month with no commission.  We believe in our product, if we didn’t we would have to tie you into a lengthy contract, so we don’t tie you into a contract.  So no contracts, low monthly fees, no commission, and with over 80% of our fees going back into advertising you can’t go wrong.

The platform

The Just-Eat platform is quite extensive, however it still has a lot of limitations which requires a call into support to manage.  Such as the ability to completely control your listing that Takeaway Revolution offers but is lacked on the Just Eat Platform. Takeaway Revolution also offers a host of features not found on other platforms such as;

  • The ability to receive orders in your native language, meaning no more need for translators as receipts are also printed in your language. Takeaway Revolution is the first and only provider that offers this unique functionality.
  • Full control of your listing, set headers with offers, load your logo, set your menu style and more
  • Complete menu control;
    • Set menus for certain days
    • Have different offerings throughout the day.  The ability to have a breakfast menu in the morning, lunch menu in the afternoon and dinner for the evening.
    • Change prices/add new food lines plus loads more.
  • No more quiet times;
    • Drive new customers during your quiet times with offers and discounts that go live instantly
    • Send push notifications to your customers for free (similar to SMS but though the app) to notify them of your latest offers.
    • Cutting edge technology allowing you to reduce your quiet times and maximise your sales.
    • Reduce food waste, by promoting that tray of chicken that expires by the end of the week, and sending a free push notification.

Conclusion

Takeaway Revolution can literally save you thousands in commission fees whilst putting over 80% of our fees back into advertising your business.  We can help you to grow your business and save money whilst providing you cutting edge technology that can really transform your business. If you have tried to move away from Just Eat, and have failed with a load of new contracts and fees from other suppliers, we can help you to make that move for good. Takeaway Revolution objective is to transform the industry, remove commission once and for all, but also grow your business.

Uber Eats and Deliveroo are new competitors to the market and have come into the industry to help businesses that didn’t have their own delivery drivers and therefore couldn’t use Just Eat.

Fees and Setup

Both Deliveroo and Uber Eats charge a massive 30% commission as well as charging your customers large fees to utilise your service. With the average spend on these platforms being over £3000 a month, it can become quite a burden for your business.  With setup fees range from £200-£350 and lengthly contracts, joining up can often lead to businesses regretting it later.  These companies use a lot fo tactics to bring in customers, and will offer merchants massive savings to join up, but with all the hidden fees that are discovered later down the line leave merchants frustrated.

Takeaway Revolutions costs just £150 to setup, and £75 per month with no commission.  We believe in our product, if we didn’t we would have to tie you into a lengthy contract, so we don’t tie you into a contract.  So no contracts, low monthly fees, no commission, and with over 80% of our fees going back into advertising you can’t go wrong.

In addition to this, our app, Takeaway Drivers, does exactly what Deliveroo and Uber Eats does, but is provided for free to our customers.  Please note: at present we are focussing on getting restaurants saving thousands, as such this app is for your own delivery drivers, but we will be looking to offer the same service as Deliveroo and Uber Eats over the coming months so stay tuned.

The platform

These platforms are geared up to delivery and as such they do this very well, but at the same time lack alot of other functionality that Takeaway Revolution Offers such as;

  • The ability to receive orders in your native language, meaning no more need for translators as receipts are also printed in your language. Takeaway Revolution is the first and only provider that offers this unique functionality.
  • Full control of your listing, set headers with offers, load your logo, set your menu style and more
  • Complete menu control;
    • Set menus for certain days
    • Have different offerings throughout the day.  The ability to have a breakfast menu in the morning, lunch menu in the afternoon and dinner for the evening.

    • Reduce food waste, by promoting that tray of chicken that expires by the end of the week, and sending a free push notification.

Conclusion

Takeaway Revolution can literally save you thousands in commission fees whilst putting over 80% of our fees back into advertising your business.  We can help you to grow your business and save money whilst providing you cutting edge technology that can really transform your business.
