The Solution: Bite
Bite emerged as the ideal solution for these challenges, meeting the specific requirements Chopt had in mind. The partnership began in 2021, and since then, they have continuously worked together to refine the user experience and strengthen integrations. Currently, Chopt has Bite kiosks deployed in 13 restaurants across five states.
The implementation of Bite kiosks at Chopt locations spanned approximately three months from project kickoff to deployment at the first location. This process involved standard menu setup, sharing brand assets, and planning equipment. Additionally, it involved custom feature enhancements such as substitution pricing and item-specific modifier group customizations.
Given Chopt’s menu complexity, comprising over 80 individual ingredients across more than 30 items with intricate pricing rules, Bite's menu management tool was put to the test. At each stage of implementation, Bite provided robust solutions, ensuring a seamless and efficient transition.
