Aldelo Express Helps Reduce Food Waste in Restaurants with Cloud Back-Office Management and Customizable Digital Menus
3-minute read ---
In 2018, the United States spent over $200 billion growing, processing, transporting, and disposing uneaten food. Millions of tons of food are wasted each year: tons are left unharvested on farms and even more are thrown into landfills. Unfortunately, due to food being left on plates and excess inventory, the restaurant industry generates 11.4 million tons of food waste each year, costing billions of dollars in potential profit for food service owners and operators.*
The good news is, owners can take steps to reduce food waste in their restaurants using preventative solutions such as donating excess items to nonprofits, selling unused items to their customers, or getting creative with excess ingredients. In fact, the restaurant industry has potential to garner $620 million in profit potential.
Aldelo Express offers cloud point-of-sale solutions and features that include natively integrated digital menus and a cloud back-office platform that equips restaurant owners to reduce food waste via inventory oversight, item sales reports, and operational analysis. In addition, Aldelo Express users customize an ecosystem of merchant- and customer-facing solutions to meet growing needs of their customers and their business both on and off restaurant premises.
