Room Service (or In-Room Dining as it is often called) has been a mainstay at hotels for decades. The premise is simple: call down and place an order and your meal will be delivered to your room. It’s aimed at providing the ultimate convenience to the busy traveler that doesn’t have the time to figure out where or what to eat.
But new data suggests that room service may be headed to the check-out desk. Room service is often operated at a loss to the hotel leaving many large hotel chains to slowly eliminate it entirely. Even worse, consumers often face a steep charge for the service: $4 delivery fee, $7 service charge, and 22% gratuity on top of already inflated meal prices. There has to be a better way!
Hotel operators and guests alike can rejoice at the rise of SueChef, an automated kitchen appliance that will do the cooking for you. With a SueChef in your hotel room, guests can have Sue do the cooking for them, all without having to leave the room. What could be more convenient than that?
Furthermore, hotels can eliminate labor and costly kitchen operation costs and pass the savings onto the consumer. With SueChef, guests can have a high-quality meal prepared in-room for less than the price of just the additional fees of traditional room service. Now you don’t have to break the bank for the convenience of in-room dining.
So as room service heads for the exit, SueChef is checking in to provide convenient, affordable, and high-quality meals directly in your hotel room. For more information, sign up for SueChef updates or follow us if you think we’re awesome.
