    Streamline Your Ordering Process

    Ordering Optimized for Catering

    Using a restaurant system for catering makes things clumsy for clients and requires too many workarounds. HoneyCart fixes this.

    Set Delivery & Pickup Times

    Set days and times clients can choose to order for. Block off specific dates & times when you’re unavailable.

    Delivery Fees

    Charge a standard delivery fee or customize your fees based on zip code.

    Menus

    Easily upload menus without contacting support. Set minimum quantities, option choices & prevent special requests as needed.

    Lead Times

    Prevent last-minute orders by setting the lead time you need for each order (i.e 2 hours, 48 hours, day before by 5PM).

    Block Orders Outside Delivery Area

    Enter the zip codes you deliver to, and block orders that are outside your delivery area.

    Date Specific Menus

    Set specific dates or days of the week when a menu is available (i.e Mother’s Day, Thanksgiving, Taco Tuesday’s).

    Automated Catering Policies

    Automate your catering policies to prevent last-minute changes and enforce late-cancellation fees.

    Multiple Order Types

    Set different policies, delivery/pickup times and fees for each type of order you offer (i.e delivery, pickup, holiday).

    "If we weren’t open, customers couldn’t order... Without a doubt, I feel like we definitely lost business.

    There are people that I don’t even have to talk to now. They just place their order... Now I wake up in the morning, I check my emails and there are usually three or four new orders."

    • Streamline operations from front to back of the house.

    "[Once the pandemic hit] I had less staff having to do way MORE things, and entering orders by hand didn’t make sense when the customer could do it themselves.

    The system lets the client drive and do all of the work. We simply review and approve. This was one hourly person’s entire job."
