Are you in the food service industry? Is your till ready for the Valentines day crowds?
When a diner walks into your cafe or restaurant on any given day, they only have an idea about what they are likely to spend on their meal. Unless they are a regular customer and always order the same meal, they do not know the exact amount of cash to carry around.
Now picture your restaurant on Valentines day. As well as the uncertainty on how much cash will be sufficient, there is the added pressure of not knowing what their date is going to order. It is a special meal, the music and ambience is set up to achieve a celebratory feel. The drinks will be flowing, it’s your opportunity to offer special treats and desserts. Let the payment experience follow the same seamless pattern.

Benald, a waiter at the Nakawa restaurant speaks enthusiastically about the increased level of service the Yo! Payments solution has afforded them.
“Someone doesn’t have to worry about not having enough cash to pay for their food or drinks.”
Emma Mugabi, the manager at the branch reiterates this and emphasizes the advantage of having several payment options.
“Sometimes one’s card may fail for one reason or another. It’s good to be able to offer an alternative payment method,” he says.
The Nakawa business park restaurant serves the hundreds of businesses that operate in the park and surrounding areas.
