Why Garden Centres love Zonal

Haskins Logo
“The reporting we can access is making a huge difference to the way we manage our business and our menus.  We can now see what dishes are popular and giving us the best margins and those that either need refining or taking off the menu.”
Ben Harrison, Group Catering Manager, Haskins Garden Centres

Why Haskins Garden Centres choose to work with Zonal

With a not fit-for-purpose retail system controlling their F&B function, Haskins Garden Centres were facing inaccuracies with stock, a lack of visibility on product performance and operational inefficiencies within their restaurants; and with plans to expand their estate to further sites, the team knew they needed a suite of specialist hospitality technology to better manage their thriving F&B division.

The Haskins team chose to implement a suite of Zonal technology that would scale with them as the business continued to grow, including our EPoS and handheld ordering devices, extensive reporting platform, and kitchen management system. Since implementing our technology across their restaurant operations, Haskins have benefitted from speedier service, detailed reporting across their restaurants to help them maximise margins, and frictionless service that delights customers.

A superior suite of garden centre hospitality technology solutions

Improve efficiency with our best-in-class EPoS

Zonal’s POS sits at the heart of your garden centre restaurant’s tech stack, connecting your front and back-of-house to deliver complete operational control. It can help increase speed of service, reduce waste and improve stock control, provide vital business insights, increase operational efficiency and boost your customers’ loyalty. All the tools you need to improve your restaurant and entice more customers in when they visit your garden centre, in one place. Data from Zonal’s EPoS can be easily exported to allow you to collate data from both your retail and restaurant POS systems.

Manage suppliers and stock to weed out wastage

Manage your stock levels, suppliers, purchasing and recipes all in one place. Increase ordering efficiency with our end-to-end Purchase to Pay solution, allowing you to cut costs from over-ordering, and reduce waste sent to the compost heap.

Menu and allergen management

Our menu management technology allows you to centrally create and curate your recipes, maintaining consistency of ingredients, costs and preparation across your entire estate. Easily maintain allergen information to stay up to date with legislative changes.

Increase reservations and maximise yield in your restaurant with Zonal Bookings

Drive more traffic into your garden centre restaurant by offering easy, convenient table bookings for your customers, and gain full control over your floorplan with our reservations and table management system. Effectively manage your busiest trading days, such as during the Christmas period and Mother’s Day, with our events booking module and enable customers to pre-order, allowing you to prepare well in advance.

Zonal’s booking system shares real-time data with your EPoS, updating table availability as soon as a bill is paid, allowing other potential customers to book as soon as a table is free, and allowing you to more effectively manage your waitlists to make sure you’re always optimising your capacity.

Speed up service with order and pay at table

Increase the average spend in your garden centre restaurant by making it easy for customers to order with the click of a button whilst sat at their table. Zonal’s online ordering system is a safe, secure and contactless way for your customers to order and pay for food and drink via their mobile device. As items are ordered, either front of house or through our digital ordering system stock levels are updated in real-time, helping you reduce wastage and inevitably control costs.

Open up new revenue streams with Toggle ecommerce and gift cards

Toggle allows you to access a whole new potential set of guests, as well as access new revenue streams, through a branded ecommerce webstore. Offer gift cards to enable guests who regularly visit to share the experience with friends and family, increasing footfall and driving sales. Toggle integrates fully with Zonal’s EPoS, as well as a huge number of other tech providers, allowing for easy redemption and reconciliation during the customer’s visit.

Airship will help you to get to know your customers better, enabling you to stay connected, drive engagement, and boost loyalty to encourage those all-important repeat visits to your restaurant, as well as encouraging guests to spend more when they do visit.
