Keeping Orders Secure at the University of South Carolina

When mobile orders are left on a counter for pickup, they can easily get picked up by the wrong person. See how the University of South Carolina made order pickup secure, contactless and fast when they added Apex Smart Food Lockers.

Expanding Pickup Beyond Dining Halls

Watch how this innovative campus dining program uses Apex Smart Food Lockers to offer on-the-go dining choices outside its usual dining venues.


Limited floor space? We got you!

These OrderHQ™ Front-Load lockers let employees load orders at the front, so all you need is open wall space to provide fast, self-serve order pickup.

Why our food lockers are ambient

ApexIQ software helps you optimize order pickup and reduce dwell times, so OrderHQ lockers don’t need the complexity or expense of heat or refrigeration. When integrated with your tech stack, you gain end-to-end data insights that help you improve order create-to-load times, while increasing throughput and minimizing wait times for guests. In fact, the average order spends less than 6 minutes in the locker, which means fresher food, and better guest experiences.
