Mercer to Launch Mobile Ordering App for Retail Dining Locations

Panda Express

MACON – Mercer University Auxiliary Services and Mercer Dining will introduce a new mobile ordering app this August that will give students the option to order ahead of time and skip the line at the University’s retail dining locations.

The third-party app, Transact Mobile Ordering, allows students to place orders at Chick-Fil-A, Panda Express, Which Wich, Brewed Awakenings, Einstein Bros. Bagels or the Side Bar Café.

“In today’s environment, health and safety is paramount. Everyone is looking for efficient and safe ways to serve our customers,” said Ken Boyer, associate vice president for auxiliary services. “We are confident that the app will be a viable way of providing our community safe, contactless and convenient access to the dining options that work for their individual needs.”

Students can download the app from the App Store or Google Play by searching “Transact Mobile Ordering” and log in with their Mercer credentials. The app will also be available on the University’s website this fall.

Once logged in, students can add their credit or debit card or pay with Dining Dollars or Bear Bucks. Following initial setup, the app will keep users logged in for convenient future use.

By using the app, students practically skip the line altogether. The app sends them a notification when their food is ready.

Users may also take advantage of a loyalty rewards program to be offered later in the year.
