June 2021 Ruminations & Ronnifications

So there I sat at a manager’s meeting in 2005, listening to one General Manager after another talk about online ordering. I kept thinking about what online ordering meant and if it would be a viable ordering system for our customers, especially our older patrons. I imagined they would say… what line? online where? where is the line? So, I resisted.

Eventually my younger management team forced me to relent. And now, so many years later, I have watched online ordering grow and transcend into the fastest, smoothest, and most efficient way to execute a food order. If you have been ordering online, please continue… and tell two friends. If you have never tried it, try it, you will like it!

Our new and improved online ordering system lets you add points to your Ben’s loyalty card and redeem any monies or coupons earned. You can select, pick-up, curbside, or delivery. You also have the option to prepay before you enter the store or pay when you get here. Who knew this could be possible?  What a world we now live in!

I want to wish a Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and Congratulations to all the graduates. It has been a tough year and a time for pause and celebration. We look forward and are ready to celebrate with you in our stores and serving all your backyard BBQ and catering needs.

Again, thank you. However you’ve been patronizing us….in our dining rooms, our makeshift outdoor dining set ups,   in person at our deli counter, phone orders, or online,  we really do appreciate your business and loyalty.

See ya at the Deli.
