Leading Better-For-You Restaurant Brands Offer Interactive Digital Technology to Support Dietary Needs
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Sept. 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — WOWorks, the parent company behind a collection of better-for-you restaurant brands, including Saladworks, Frutta Bowls, Garbanzo Mediterranean Fresh, The Simple Greek, Barberitos Southwestern Grille and Cantina, and Zoup! Eatery, announced its partnership with BigZpoon, a renowned provider of innovative food-ingredient based analysis technology solutions for the restaurant and hospitality industries. This strategic alliance aims to assist guests in navigating any WOWorks restaurant menu, enabling them to make informed meal choices that align with their dietary preferences and restrictions.
With approximately one-fourth of American consumers implementing dietary and nutrition guidelines for their meals, as per Statista’s Global Consumer Survey, WOWorks recognizes the growing demand for personalized dining options. Through its collaboration with BigZpoon, WOWorks is introducing a personalized and interactive allergen and nutrition menu technology tool empowering guests to select menu items that meet their nutritional needs and preferences. Furthermore, the integration includes a real-time nutrition calculator that accurately tracks the dietary details of chosen meals and alerts guests when their nutrition goals are exceeded.
“As awareness about the impact of food on our lives continues to grow, a larger percentage of our guests are mindful of what they choose to consume,” said Kelly Roddy, CEO of WOWorks. “Whether it’s reducing meat intake for environmental reasons or minimizing carbs for personal health, diners are increasingly seeking nutritional information from restaurants. We always encourage our guests to customize our signature menu items or create their personalized meals to suit their lifestyle preferences. It brings us great pleasure to provide a digital tool that significantly enhances the accessibility of allergen and nutrition information in a convenient digital format.”
Unlike many restaurants offering static PDF formats for nutrition information, BigZpoon’s innovative technology leverages guests’ individual preferences and filters the entire menu of each WOWorks restaurant. This ensures guests are presented with food options aligning with their specific criteria. The AI-driven software not only guides guests through a personalized menu experience, but it also removes items containing allergens or do not meet their desired preferences, creating a stress-free dining experience. BigZpoon’s menu system seamlessly integrates with the existing ordering systems at all WOWorks restaurants, allowing guests to efficiently place online orders and take advantage of third-party delivery services.
WOWorks franchise owners come from different backgrounds, including multi-brand franchisees; varied business ownership backgrounds, such as construction, hotels, and fitness; former professional athletes; and military veterans. The company has franchising opportunities available in 49 states (all states excluding Hawaii) and offers 25 percent off franchise fees for veterans and first responders.
