Simplified online platform improves customer experience and increases order frequency
VANCOUVER, Wash., March 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Papa Murphy’s Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:FRSH) today announces the launch of its newly redesigned website and digital ordering platform. The updated and easy-to-navigate papamurphys.com was developed in partnership with Fuzz LLC—a digital creative agency—and features a simpler, cleaner design that better reflects Papa Murphy’s brand offering. The website highlights the freshness of the Company’s scratch-made dough, freshly shredded cheese, hand chopped veggies and high-quality toppings. The rollout of the new ecommerce platform by Olo, the leading provider of online and mobile ordering capabilities, marks the Company’s first phase of its digital evolution.
“We’re thrilled that our new website showcases the uniqueness of the Papa Murphy’s brand and better educates visitors on the unmatched quality of our pizza,” said Weldon Spangler, CEO of Papa Murphy’s Holdings. “In addition to revamping our website, we are working to address the changing needs of customers with our new online ordering system powered by Olo. It is now easier than ever for Papa Murphy’s customers to customize their order, find promotions and value deals, and save their order for easy, future ordering.”
The new ordering platform improves the online and mobile ordering experience, sends customers a text when their order is ready for pick-up, and soon will allow customers the ability to order a “half-and-half” pizza that combines two of their favorite pizzas in one. In addition to enhanced customer convenience, Papa Murphy’s franchisees now have access to a streamlined payment system with added payment options in participating stores, and franchisees may notice improved sales conversion rates for promotional menu items due to the ability to highlight promotional products. The newly designed papamurphys.com allows franchisees to receive augmented local hiring support through an easier application process for in-store opportunities.
“We’re proud to partner with Papa Murphy’s to help take the company’s digital experience to the next level,” said Noah Glass, Founder and CEO of Olo. “With its focus on fresh ingredients and hand-crafted, personalized tastes, Papa Murphy’s is tapped into what today’s consumers really want. Utilization of the Olo platform sets up Papa Murphy’s for exploring additional options to expand convenience, such as delivery, to continue making this incredible bake-at-home pizza more accessible than ever.”
