A Slice of Efficiency.
With Doshii’s help, Glorietta is saving valuable time serving hungry Sydneysiders.
All-day Italian eatery Glorietta is a place where you come for a drink and stay for a meal. Designed for long lunches, afterwork drinks and everything in between, the North Sydney spot is designed to adapt to pretty much any scenario.
After swinging open the doors in late spring 2019, that adaptability was quickly put to the test with the arrival of Covid-19. Instead of serving up their six types of negroni or their famous spicy vodka paccheri, the venue had to shift entirely to online sales and a wood-fired pizza delivery service.
“We’d already started to offer takeaway services in 2020 so luckily we were somehow prepared for that first lockdown. We could really put our wood-fired pizza oven to work after building up a good reputation in the very early days,” says Glorietta’s Operations, Food and Beverage Manager, Freddie Slater.
“Between lockdowns, online sales have actually ended up representing around 10-12% of our weekly revenue – pretty substantial for a 180 cover restaurant. But importantly, they’ve been our sole source of revenue during lockdown with orders coming in via Uber Eats and more recently, HungryHungry,” he adds.
