5 Reasons You Need The Food Corridor to Operate Your Shared Kitchen in 2019

It’s a new year and that means a new opportunity to revamp your shared-kitchen operations. Why should you be wasting your time fumbling with paper invoices or manually scheduling (and rescheduling) clients when The Food Corridor can do it for you? Get back to doing what you do best and leave the rest to us! Check out the 5 reasons you need The Food Corridor to operate your shared kitchen in 2019.

  1. Streamlined Scheduling

Stop answering all those phone calls, texts, and emails late into the night just so your food business clients can get on the calendar. With The Food Corridor, your clients are in control of booking time themselves. No more playing Tetris with your kitchen’s calendar.

  • New feature – The Daily View calendar is accessible without needing to be logged in to The Food Corridor. This allows you to easily display the Daily View calendar on a big screen in your kitchen and/or link the calendar on your website.
  1. Effortless Billing

The Food Corridor integrates scheduling and billing so that getting paid doesn’t have to be a pain. We generate your clients’ invoices and process their payments with auto-pay, so you don’t have to chase people down all month long. Get on top of your cash flows in the new year!

  • New feature – You can add auto recurring fees for your timeframe, such as monthly, yearly, and quarterly fees. That’s one more reminder you can scratch from your busy calendar.
  1. Powerful Client Management

We know you care about your food businesses. That’s why we empower you to support your clients while also fueling your cash flow. Necessary documents like Food Handler Cards and Liability Insurance are stored and notifications are sent to your clients when they are set to expire, keeping you in good graces with the Health Department. All the information you need regarding your clients is in one spot, including in-app messaging.

  • New feature – Kitchen managers can view a client’s past space bookings from the client’s profile page. This means you can quickly answer their questions about time in the kitchen, verify their bookings and monthly totals, and generally have faster insight into a client’s happenings in the kitchen.
  1. Performance Tracking

The Food Corridor software can help your kitchen track key performance indicators like revenue, revenue streams, space utilization, member numbers, storage utilization, and more, with just a few clicks.

  • New feature – To help kitchen managers have greater insight into revenue streams, we have added more detailed data in the available reports. This helps you make more informed decisions around pricing and planning for your storage rental offerings.
