Charlotte, N.C. (Sept. 14, 2022) — Firebirds Wood Fired Grill, an award-winning scratch kitchen restaurant and steakhouse offering exceptional wood-grilled dishes, has launched Flybuy Pickup to power its growing curbside delivery business and guests are eating it up. The restaurant chose Flybuy to create a curbside solution that makes it quick and easy for guests and delivery operators to pick up their orders without leaving their vehicles. Early reports show the program is already making an impact with high guest adoption, wait times as low as 30 seconds and an increase in repeat visits.
“Whether you have a car full of kids or are headed home after a long day at work, we’ve created an approach that makes it more convenient to pick up your order and enjoy a delicious meal on the go or at home,” said Firebirds Wood Fired Grill COO Charles Blankenship.
“We are thrilled to work with Firebirds as they launch their new curbside pick-up and delivery platform,” said Amanda Wilson, Senior Strategic Account Executive with Radius Networks, a leading enterprise location technology company and developer of Flybuy’s technology platform. “Whether it be pickup or delivery, off-premise orders continue to be a large part of Firebirds’ business and we are helping the restaurant provide its guests with a smooth experience, no matter how they choose to dine.”
Curbside pick-up and delivery orders are made online at firebirdsrestaurants.com or by calling Firebirds Wood Fired Grill. The polished casual restaurant, known for its bold flavors, hand-cut steaks and fresh seafood grilled over locally sourced hardwoods, has also prioritized its sustainability efforts to lessen the impact on the environment. With the addition of Flybuy’s location-based technology, Firebirds is driving down carbon emissions from cars idling in the parking lot. In fact, since the launch of Flybuy, Firebirds has reduced its carbon emissions by 11,857g each month. And Flybuy has directly impacted Firebirds’ reductions in throwaways and food spoilage.
