When do customers make the most reservations for your restaurant?

To organize the daily running of your restaurant and manage your staff, your opening hours, and your reservations in the smartest possible way, it is essential to get to know and understand your customers’ habits.

What are customers’ preferred times for booking restaurant tables?

Reservations are at the center of the life of a restaurant. But time spent on the telephone handling those reservations represents less time in the kitchen and front of house.

There are many advantages to online bookings: easier management, optimization of time, winning new customers, meeting expectations of younger generations, welcoming tourists, limiting no-shows…
