Every coffee shop knows how bad a morning coffee rush can be. You try to take orders quickly while still attending to each customer and there's still a long wait. We've found a great way to simplify this: coffee order forms!
What is a Coffee Order Form?
A coffee order form is a small sheet of paper printed with your menu and available options. Your customers can easily circle exactly what they want! It's a great way to prevent order screw-ups and disappointed customers.
How to Use Coffee Order Forms
Coffee order forms are simple for you and your customers. To use them, just follow these three easy steps!
1. Consolidate Your Menu
A coffee order form is just a simplified version of your menu. Put all your menu items into categories and decide what best fits your order form. Then all that's left is formatting it to fit a half or quarter-sized piece of paper.
2. Print Your Forms
Once you have your menu typed out and formatted, it's time to print it. There are a few ways to do this: you can print and cut your order forms yourself or you can bring your file to your local print shop where they can do that for you. If you choose to print and cut them yourself, you'll need to dedicate enough time so you always have order forms.
3. Implement Your Process
After you've printed your coffee order forms, it's time to put them to good use! Keep them accessible to the people at the end of your typical line next to a cup of pens or pencils. Teach your employees to make orders from the order forms so it's streamlined throughout your coffee shop.
