Clarity and Control: Introducing the Picnic Hub

Hands up, who feels rushed off their feet at the moment?

With seemingly never-ending supply chain concerns and staffing issues, it’s no surprise that many pizza restaurant owners are feeling the heat in more ways than one.

And that’s why Picnic exists—to help make your life a little easier. We give you support when you need it most, so you can spend more time focusing on the areas of your business that drive results.

To run a successful business and keep your head above water, you need to be operationally effective and efficient. That starts with a solid grasp of your operations to enable better decision making–not easy things to keep track of when you’re focusing on solving a million other problems. This is why we built the Picnic Hub, now available to current Picnic customers.

Clarity and control

You’re already used to the Picnic Pizza Station giving you consistency, and now we’re adding clarity and control into the mix.

While the station ensures that you can save money and time by automating the most labor-intensive parts of your business, the Picnic Hub surfaces must-know data from your Picnic Pizza Station to give you a birds-eye view of how your kitchen operations are actually going.

Use the Picnic Hub to make informed decisions about purchasing and scheduling.

By accessing your own analytics and insights that show how many pizzas your store made, what types of pizza were made, and when they were made were completed, you can start to make informed, data-driven decisions about the future of your business. And that’s not all. The Picnic Hub comes with additional features, including:

Improve quality control

Order history list enables you to verify that orders were entered into the station correctly when they entered the system and how long they took to prep.

Refine operations

Data from your pizza-making operations enables you to make informed decisions. Export data and run reports to get a detailed look at how effective your kitchen is—whether you’re remote or on the go.

See how quickly your pizzas are getting to customers and how many pizzas you’ve made in a given timeframe.

Estimate ingredient usage

Based on your recipe, Picnic Hub estimates the volume of ingredients used in a specified period, giving you a better sense of when to reorder, and reducing ingredient outages or waste due to overordering.

Data-informed decision-making

Making business decisions based on a hunch won’t get you anywhere fast. By using the Picnic Hub, you’ll access the data points you need to get an operational advantage that sets you apart from the competition.

It’s time to stop the guesswork and make business decisions about your kitchen operations using data.
