Take Catering Orders Online: 3 Easy Steps

1. Place your Private Store link on your website. Learn how here. Your Private Store looks just like your regular ezCater menu, but there’s no ezCater branding or connection to the ezCater marketplace. Click here to see your Private Store.

2. Promote your new online ordering feature. Let your customers and social media followers know that you offer online ordering for catering. Get started with our templates below.

3. Watch the catering orders roll in. As usual, we’ll handle customer service and order processing on Private Store orders you accept. We charge 7% + a 2.75% credit card processing fee on those orders. We’ll share contact info for Private Store customers in your ezManage account.

 

YOUR PRIVATE STORE LINK

Clear order routing

Route catering orders just like you do now. If you operate more than one location, we create a centralized page for your brand that automatically routes your order to the right location.

Easy setup

Our tech team can help place the link on your website, free of charge. We’ll use your current ezCater menu—no need to send us a new one. Set controls for order minimums, advance notice, and more.
