How Jimmy John's Increased Procurement Speed and Accuracy by 100%

February 28, 2018

Without an efficient procurement system in place, it was very difficult for Jimmy John’s to monitor orders coming in for 3 different locations. After signing up for BlueCart, Jimmy John’s now knows exactly what their locations are ordering, when they’re ordering it, and how frequently they’re ordering. This allows Ben, Owner and Operator at Jimmy John’s, to spend more time addressing other kitchen processes and less time worrying about inventory levels.

“BlueCart is great because it allows me to monitor and place orders from all three of my franchise locations. I get email notifications every time an order is placed by one of my managers and can quickly check my BlueCart account to view order histories. The ability to remotely monitor and manage ordering allows me to support my managers, making their jobs much easier. This is a mobile solution that definitely improves my life as a multi-unit franchisee!”

Not only that, BlueCart also helps Jimmy John's streamline their procurement process by decreasing the likelihood of errors. Managers are empowered to focus on increasing each location’s revenue stream, and they can rest assured knowing their business is receiving exactly what they ordered, on time, without error. 

"BlueCart has streamlined my ordering process, saving me time and allowing me to more efficiently scale my business and open new restaurants.” 

Training and developing managers is one of the biggest challenges Ben faces as an owner of fast casual restaurants. By streamlining simple and time-consuming tasks, restaurant technology solutions can help managers expedite the training process. Since using BlueCart, Ben has been able to lower labor costs and increase employee satisfaction.
