FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Below are answers to common questions, organized by Customers, Restaurant Owners and Restaurant Employees:)

CUSTOMER QUESTIONS

1.  WHAT ARE THE QUALITY OF YOUR MATERIALS?

We work with a renown manufacturer who has a lot to say about quality.  Visit their page on production & materials quality here.

2.  HOW DO WE RECEIVE OUR PURCHASES?

Simple, at checkout, you will see the delivery options available.  All will be shipped directly to any US address you choose.

3.  HOW DO I KNOW WHO IS THE BENEFICIARY OF MY PURCHASE?

At the top of any page on our site, you will see the name of the restaurant or employee who will receive anywhere from $3.50 to $11 per item purchased.  Another $1.50 is shared among restaurants and co-workers they collaborate with to build income.

4.  HOW DO I KNOW MY INFORMATION IS SAFE?

We work with www.shopify.com, which serves as the e-commerce platform of choice for over 1M stores around the world.  For payment processing, we work with www.stripe.com, which handles billions of US dollars every year in transactions.  We receive zero access to your credit card data.

5.  WHAT IS YOUR BUSINESS MODEL?

There is no marketplace in the world that is dedicated to helping independent restaurants and their employees to develop and sell branded merchandise and their own retail products.  That is where we are headed, but with a unique approach that is designed to maximize the earnings that restaurants and their employees can generate for themselves.  This industry needs everyone's support, and we dream of helping thousands of restaurants and tens of thousands of employees, one at a time:)

RESTAURANT OWNER QUESTIONS

 1.  HOW WILL THIS WORK FOR OUR RESTAURANT(S)?

Here are your challenges and how we solve them:

Your merchandise sales are low (if any), and it still takes work.  We do everything for you.  We set up your branded Collection of merchandise, help you build a motivated, commission-based sales force, manufacture everything, and send every product to the door of your customers.  All you do is create a market (which we teach you how to do).

Your employees live pay check to pay check.  You feel awful about this, but with competition so tough, you can't afford to pay more.  We provide you with tools that turn your staff into high-commission earners and business builders so that there is a virtuous cycle of mutual financial growth.  It really is a beautiful thing.

2.  HOW CAN WE GET STARTED?

Email us at love@iloverestaurants.org and let's have a one-on-one "Quick Start Call".  We will take you through 3 different start-up options (depending on your goals), none of which cost you a penny.  Or, you can also join our Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/iloverestaurants/.  We will announce less personal Group Orientation Calls there occasionally.

3.  HOW DO WE ADD OUR OWN COLLECTION?

Let's have that "Quick Start Call".  Adding a Collection is one of the three options, so let's dig into what best meets your needs.

4.  HOW MUCH CAN MY RESTAURANT MAKE?

Sky is the limit.  We have systems to help you scale to levels you might not have considered, but it will depend on your efforts, your reputation and using our approach and systems to make that happen effectively.

RESTAURANT EMPLOYEE QUESTIONS

 1.  HOW WILL THIS WORK FOR ME?

This is an opportunity for you to earn in 3 ways: a) Help your employer to create more sales, meaning they have more resources for hiring and wages; b) Make strong commissions on sales to your own social media, friends and loved ones; and c) Build your network of new commissioned restaurant employees whose sales can generate income for you.  This combined set of incomes is potentially a real business opportunity for you. 

2.  HOW CAN I LEARN MORE?
