How Trybooking are helping food and catering businesses solve the fewer tables / less covers problem is a national online booking, registration and ticketing platform was launched in the Lake District in July 2014 by Lake District based entrepreneur, Joan Lind.

Under normal circumstances they successfully help Chambers of Commerce, Schools, Charities, Theatres, Musical organisations with their easy to use and extremely versatile booking and ticketing platform for events – Indeed the ticketing requirements for both FDMB Live events last year were handled through the Trybooking platform. 

However, like most businesses things have changed a bit since 23 March.

During this time of lockdown organisations are benefiting from Trybooking’s simple online booking system in new ways and this includes the food, catering and hospitality sectors. 

This includes: 

1. Food boxes for the local community, being organised by schools, charities and farm shops.


This example has a mix of meat, fresh fruit and vegetables or a grocery box with flour and milk:


2. Pubs, Cafes and Delis using us effectively to showcase online menus and take online bookings for deliveries.


Helping them supplement table service with take-away and delivery services, and when they re-open help them take more covers with fewer tables.

The benefits:

Control orders eg 5 per hour or 10 per hour.

Control time slots for deliveries.

Never too many orders for the chef.

Have a clear record of all details inc allergies.

Immediate payment before delivery. No cash handling

Set delivery parameters eg 1mile v 15miles.

Alter menus as frequently as required.

Trybooking support organisations across the North West and the UK.  If they can help you more easily organise online bookings for food and meal deliveries, please do get in touch.
