Pizza Lovers Rejoice: The Ultimate Solution for Online Ordering is Here!
Every Pizzeria Needs Appfront
May 20, 2020
Ever since the first pizza was made way back in 1889 by baker Raffaele Esposito from Naples, making and selling pizza has never been an easy task.
From street vendors to big chains, selling pizzas, fast and tasty, is a challenging art form.
Hot ovens, demanding customers, and complicated deliveries are part of the reason.
If “Why is my pizza still not here?! I ordered it 20 minutes ago?!” sounds familiar, then you know what we mean. Today, in the digital era, we believe that a good pizzaiolo needs to concentrate on making amazing pizzas, and technology companies should take care of the rest.
Here are the top reasons why every pizzeria needs Appfront in its arsenal:

If one of these parameters falls short (or falls slow for that matter), the final product suffers. This is the main reasons that our emphasizes speed when it comes to online ordering. We won’t go through all the ins-and-outs of the technologies we use to make it happen, but the bottom line is that our customers' online ordering experience speaks for itself: order.pequodspizza.com.
