Newk's Eatery encouraging use of technology for ordering

The next time you are thinking of going out for lunch or dinner, how likely would you place your order through an app? One casual fast food dining chain is making it easy to do just that.

With around 120 locations around the country, Newk's Eatery is making a strong statement when it comes to healthy and fresh eating out or on the go options, thanks to technology.

If you aren't familiar with Newk's, it's fast casual with its culinary-driven menu prepared in an open-view kitchen. The menu includes made-from-scratch soups, fresh tossed salads, hand-crafted pizzas, hot toasted sandwiches and a variety of desserts.

While food is the centerpiece of any restaurant, Newk's delivers an excellent customer experience and technology is one of the enablers.

“Our founder Chris Newcomb, who develops our dishes, is a true foodie, and his passion for big flavors and generous portions is brought to life in every dish," said Stewart Slocum, CMO of Newk’s Eatery. "We source the finest seasonal ingredients, cooking with premium meats, seasonal vegetables, house-roasted garlic and house-infused olive oils. We take a hands-on approach to every meal, going the extra mile with our ingredients – even if that means importing from Europe. We house-make all of our own dressings, we hand-chop our vegetables, we slice our own meats, and we hand-roll our pizza dough – every morning, every day.”

For Newk's patrons in a hurry, the restaurant offers online ordering, mobile app/skip the line options, and an Express Market cooler section filled with Newk’s’ most popular fresh-made sandwiches, salads, soups, desserts and beverages.

There is both an Android and iOS app. Ordering can be completed in a matter of just a few screen taps.
