What is Lunchbox Essential?

Lunchbox Essential is our not-so-secret sauce for the fastest way restaurants can build their online presence. Lunchbox Essential is specifically for single-location, mom-and-pop, or hole-in-the-wall restaurants. It’s a do-it-yourself online ordering webpage that can be set up in about 30 minutes — with no charge to the restaurant.

These aren’t just the tools – it’s the whole toolbox – to help you grow your online revenue and protect your profit margins. Never pay a third-party fee to DoorDash, GrubHub, or UberEats again with your own digital storefront. 

How does it benefit you?

Restaurants pay nothing because we believe that’s how it always should be. There are no fixed monthly costs, no sign-up fees, or hidden commission fees. It’s the customers who pay a small convenience fee per order. 

Go live in under 30 minutes

It’s so quick and easy to set up – we swear. You’ll be up and running in under 30 minutes. It’s a simple setup with easy-to-use functions. If you get stuck at any point, we have an entire help center that guides you step-by-step on each feature. Build your entire menu, payment system, promotions, and more. 

Full web ordering

Once your website is set up, it’s that easy. You are officially live and customers order directly through your restaurant's website. Everything happens through you – not a third party (aka no fees). 

Manage your menu by creating categories, adding availability for different items, the time of day for which they’re available, and of course adding your own yummy images. For example, create a menu category called ‘Breakfast’ and make it available only between 08:00 AM to 11:30 AM. It will automatically hide after 11:30 AM – no need to do anything manually. 

Discount and coupon codes

Offer discounts to your customers to create brand loyalty. When one customer benefits well from your discounts, they’re likely to refer your restaurant to others. You have the ability to offer a customizable loyalty program and special offerings like coupons and promotions to keep them coming back for more. We also offer the ability for you to cross-sell and upsell items to your guests when they check out. 

On-brand ordering experience

The website is your digital storefront! It’s also optimized for quick checkout and your customers can order in under 5 taps/clicks.
