Duck Donuts Testing Online Ordering Ahead of National Launch
Duck Donuts, one of the nation’s fastest growing donut franchises, announced it is testing online ordering through its website for convenient in-store pickup at select locations. Through a partnership with Olo, the leading online food ordering solution for the restaurant industry, the online ordering experience is seamlessly integrated into the Company’s website and available in Allentown, King of Prussia and Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania; Newark, Delaware; Estero and Kissimmee, Florida; Savannah, Georgia; and Dublin, Ohio. The goal for the made-to-order donut shop is to roll out nationwide by the end of 2018.
“Technology has allowed Duck Donuts to align with rapidly advancing trends among consumers, letting our digital savvy customers conveniently fit time for donuts into their busy lives,” says Russ DiGilio, founder and CEO of Duck Donuts Franchising Company. “Part of the Duck Donuts experience is watching your donuts being made right in front of you, but now through online ordering, our customers who are on-the-go have the opportunity to enjoy our warm, delicious and made-to-order donuts without the wait.”
There is no minimum to each order and customers can access the online ordering feature on a computer or mobile device by visiting www.duckdonuts.com. The easy-to-navigate platform allows customers to select the nearest participating location, the desired pickup time and customize their donut order. Customers can conveniently claim their order at the designated pickup area, which was designed to avoid disrupting service or increasing wait times for customers ordering in store. In addition, first-time users will receive $2 off each dozen purchased.
Through online ordering, guests can order menu items including custom donuts, seasonal assortments, OBX Donut Breakfast Sandwich, hot and iced coffee, tea, iced tea and bottled beverages. Orders can be placed and paid for same day pickup or future orders, up to 30 days in advance. Users have the ability to create a login profile to save past orders and easily repeat.
