The Buona Companies Sees 300% Increase in Curbside Pickups After Implementing the Platform

Logistics Platform Curbsid Reports Results of 3-Month Restaurant Case Study

Online PR News – 14-April-2021 – Atlanta, GA – All-in-one curbside pickup platform Curbsid today announced the results of a three-month long case study of its restaurant partner, the Buona Companies. The midwestern restaurant chain saw a 300% increase in curbside pickup orders (totaling over 24,000) over the course of the case study period.

After replacing its existing curbside pickup program, Buona customers who pre-ordered online opted for curbside pickup via the Curbsid platform more often. Whenever there was a busy drive-thru, curbside pickups also increased, thus allowing Buona to keep its drive-thru focus on new sales, and lowering wait times for its drive-thru and curbside operations.

We saw that area of our business grow, and we want to grow it even further”, said Joseph Buonavolanto III, Director of People at The Buona Companies. “Curbsid is improving the overall curbside experience; we’re getting a lot more repeat guests.”
