         BB Foodservice launches

         full service app

          BB Foodservice, the delivered foodservice arm of Bestway Wholesale, has
          launched its first full service app and a refreshed website to make ordering
          quicker and easier for customers.
          New app
          The new app will allow delivered catering customers to:
          ●   Start their order on a phone, tablet or computer and finish it on another device,
            anywhere, at any time
          ●   Create lists of their favourite products based on recipes and meal types and
            order faster from these lists at the touch of a button
          ●   When using the website, find out where their order is, and get live
            delivery updates
          ●   Get live updates if any of the products they ordered are unavailable when the
            order is picked, and see recommended substitutions.
          Salih Sheikh, head of marketing, Bestway Wholesale said: “Catering is an area of our
          business we have a strategy to expand, and we know that a chef wants to spend his
          time in the kitchen, not on the computer placing orders. That’s why this new app
          has been designed to enable caterers to place their order on the phone, to save lists
          based on recipes for easy re-ordering and to browse our full product range.
            “All a customer has to do now is download the app, sign up online with their existing
          customer number and they will be ready to order.”
            Website refresh
            The website refresh has been completed by The Creative Team, Dorking, Surrey and is designed to provide a
          significantly improved user experience and seamless integration across the Bestway Wholesale digital landscape.
          The site refresh is intended to be the first step on a journey focused on raising the quality of digital channels across the
          wholesale sector, with Bestway Wholesale driving improvements as the industry leader.
