Connecting with Guests




Guests are able to give real time feedback through a proprietary tool called zSurvey™. Over 30% of guests opt-in to zSurvey without incentive where traditional printed receipt methods yield less than 1%.

Through another proprietary tool, zData™, Ziosk® provides daily, weekly and monthly reports on sales, server performance and guest satisfaction to help you run your business.

But what does it cost? The Ziosk platform is a revenue center, not a cost center for the restaurant and our offering is “less than free.”

*Ziosk offers several PPA increasing features for restaurants to offer their guests including the ability to order drinks, appetizers, entrees and desserts as well as the option to purchase premium content. Restaurants that enable all these features can see PPA increases of up to 10% for guests who utilize the functionality.

While Ziosk is revolutionizing dining, there is also a company-wide commitment to give back to those around us. Our restaurant Clients feed hundreds of thousands of people each day, so at Ziosk, we wanted to help feed those less fortunate. The North Texas Food Bank prepares 130,000 meals a day; however, the need is 300,000 a day in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. In March, the team from Ziosk spent a day volunteering at the North Texas Food Bank Headquarters and sorted 26,400 pounds of food to provide 22,000 meals to those in need.
