In 2023, the food service industry is projected to touch $997B in sales. If you've always wanted to break into the restaurant industry, this is the perfect time to capitalize on the opportunity.
But wait, isn’t building a business from scratch a huge financial burden?
The answer is yes. But we are not asking you to start a restaurant or build a restaurant tech product. What we are saying is, make the most of reseller partner programs — where you can make profits from the industry's rapid growth rate, without assuming the risks typically associated with entrepreneurship. Becoming a reseller partner is an attractive prospect for restaurant consultants, suppliers, POS companies, and anyone passionate about the industry.
As a reseller, you will generate a lucrative income stream, build a reputation by partnering with a trusted brand, and benefit from the knowledge and expertise of the company you partner with.
In this article, we'll delve into the benefits of reseller partner programs, and give you some valuable insights on how to navigate this growing market.
Whether you think of Microsoft, Oracle, or Hubspot, 57% of organizations rely on partners to acquire new customers. Strategic partnerships allow tech businesses to expand their reach around the world, improve marketing campaigns, and generate more qualified leads.
In the same way, as a reseller, you too can tap into a new industry even with limited prior knowledge and experience. There is already a market available and the company has its own ideal customer profile, so it will be easier for you to gauge the market.
When you become a reseller partner, you unlock a host of benefits that help increase your revenue. One such perk is getting access to competitive pricing—which means you can afford to offer an attractive discount to your customers. If two companies offer a similar set of solutions, pricing often becomes the key deciding factor.
As a reseller in the restaurant tech industry, you can stay ahead of your competitors by offering lucrative pricing and onboarding a bigger number of customers. Restolabs White Label Program allows you to set your own pricing that’s aligned with your business strategy.
63% of customers prefer ordering online from the restaurant over ordering from a third-party source, so restaurants with a dedicated ordering system have an upper hand. But creating a mobile app or a food ordering system is a big investment that not all food joints may be ready for.
Keeping this in mind, POS providers these days are going a step ahead and offering an online ordering system integrated with the POS. If you offer POS services to restaurants, you can easily address your client’s pain points and meet your revenue KPIs by partnering with Restolabs.
While it’s common to confuse the two, reseller programs and affiliate programs are quite different from each other. Reseller partners are fully invested in the customer relationship from the beginning till the end. They buy the product at a discounted rate and sell it with a markup, often under their own brand name. Affiliates, on the other hand, are involved only at the beginning of the buyer’s journey. Their income comes from commissions.
In the restaurant tech industry or the B2B space in general, reselling is more popular. Only 18.6% of all affiliate marketers are working in B2B, and the rest are in B2C.
Instead of shopping from multiple service providers, customers look for a one-stop solution to their problems. A HubSpot survey states that 72% of sales reps who upsell say that it increases revenue by 30%.
You can take advantage of this by upselling the product or service of the company whose reseller program you have joined. For instance, if you’re a developer, web designer, growth/marketing consultant, or a supplier in the restaurant business, you can add an online ordering system to your list of offerings. As you already have a relationship with the customer, you know their requirements, so pitching and onboarding would be less complicated.
