Great Food Apps to Value Add to Your Business

Technology is changing lots of things about our daily lives, and ordering takeaway is no more immune to disruption than anything else! Food ordering trends have changed hugely since the days of picking up the phone to call the local fish and chip shop.

Now, new food delivery apps are popping up on the market all the time, and partnering with one of them can help you value-add your food business and boost your bottom line.

Here is an outline of five popular apps.

Skip and Hey You

Skip and Hey You are both phone apps that enable a user to check into their favourite coffee outlet – perhaps while enroute to the office – to pre-order and pay for a takeaway coffee that is ready for them to collect as they go past. The attraction for the customer is that there’s no waiting in a busy queue. As the owner of the coffee outlet, you don’t lose a customer who might see a queue and go elsewhere for their morning brew.

Menulog

Menulog has been around for a little while. It allows customers to order meals for home delivery from local restaurants, prepaid by credit card. It also offers food outlets marketing support, and customer data to help you grow your takeaway business.

Uber Eats

Uber Eats is a newcomer to the food app scene, an extension of the highly successful Uber taxi alternative. It allows customers to order and prepay for food from participating outlets. The order is linked to an available Uber driver in the area who picks up from the food outlet and delivers to the customer. You can track the driver via the Uber app, so you know how far away the food is at any time and when it’s been delivered to your customer.

Delivery Hero

Delivery Hero is an app that offers a range of fairly typical popular lunch and dinner food options – the local gourmet pizza, or a nearby Chinese restaurant.

The main difference between Delivery Hero and most other food delivery apps is that customers can pay with cash at the door on delivery, which they may find more secure and convenient than using a credit card.

If you’re looking to increase your trade, a relevant app might be the way to go. Apps can offer you a much greater pool of potential customers, and take the headache out of managing the delivery process.

Just remember, value adding with an app takeaway service will mean making sure you have the right food packaging supplies on hand! Your takeaway food packaging will need to present your food well, and be appropriate for delivery.
