Feature Spotlight: Item Availability

Only make muffins on a Monday? No canapes before midday? FoodStorm’s Item Availability feature gives caterers the power to make specific items available only on certain days and/or certain times of day.

What is Item Availability?

Item Availability is a feature for your online shopping cart/e-commerce site that allows you to restrict online ordering of specific products you offer to selected days of the week and/or times of day. So if you have specific weekend menus or weekday morning offerings, customers visiting your online shopping cart will only see those items available to them for their selected pickup or delivery date and time.

How Can Item Availability Benefit My Catering Business?

Item Availability can benefit your catering business by allowing you and your team to be more creative with your various catering offerings, but not overextend yourself. For example, you can offer boxed lunches and coffee supplies only during weekday afternoons to capture more corporate customers, but then on weekends offer more lavish breakfast items to capitalize on social brunch gatherings.

The Item Availability function is also perfect to Bakeries, allowing online orders to be restricted according to your baking schedule.
