Launch Your Restaurant Online with Store Pickup + Delivery and Express for Shopify

Jonathan Roque

Over 1,000 restaurants right now are using Store Pickup + Delivery to offer curbside pickup and delivery, which is now more important than ever. Getting orders out of the door, avoiding customer disappointment and making the most of busy times are problems solved using the Store Pickup + Delivery app. 

Last week, Shopify ran its annual conference Reunite, remotely for the first time ever. You can find the Zapiet team at Unite every year (with our awesome swag) and while we were bummed we all couldn't be there in person, we were excited to see all of the new features unveiled.

One of the major announcements the Shopify team at Reunite revealed regarding the online store, was the new theme Express. “We built it thinking specifically of businesses like restaurants and cafes, who want to keep their online experience simple, but any business that needs to get online quickly can benefit from Express,” announced Shopify.

More brick and mortar stores have been increasing their online presence and Express is a great theme for getting started. “Express is a theme designed for merchants who want to get online quickly. It provides a polished look for stores with limited product photography, and is best suited for stores with small or medium inventories.” The demand for an online store has increased significantly in the last 2 months due to the global pandemic. With that comes the demand of offering curbside pickup and delivery, that Zapiet has been able to provide to over 8,500 Shopify stores, some found in your own neighbourhood.

Store Pickup + Delivery works perfectly with this new theme by quickly allowing you to provide curbside pickup and local delivery to your set areas from your brick and mortar store and the customization to offer same day delivery or offer free delivery over specific order values. All contributing to running your store more efficiently. With Store Pickup + Delivery restaurants and cafes can:

  • Mark individual products as only available for pickup, delivery or shipping
  • Set specific product availability windows, such as 10-14th February
  • Offer free delivery over specific order values
  • Restrict deliveries to specific zip codes or distances from your store and so much more

Zapiet streamlined business for DBakers, a corner bakery in the Midtown neighbourhood of Miami we visited in December. DBakers relies on Store Pickup + Delivery from installing the app to getting up and running with our service and highly rely on it for more than half of their orders in such a short period of time.
