What makes food delivery apps the most on-demand?
The fact that going into this app will bring us home our favourite food in our own desired time is the attractive part about this app. Nowadays many people are far from their hometown for work and studies and they do not have the time or space to enjoy home-cooked food. And waiting in line to get a table or getting their ordered food after a long tiresome day is something everyone will detest. This app demolishes the need to stand in a queue or find a table to dine at. This helped to gain popularity among users across the nation.
The restaurant owners have also gained more customers by serving them online. Small restaurant owners and entrepreneurs are getting their recognition through these by coming on the ‘suggested restaurant’ list in the nearby area to their customers.
There is a huge increase in employment opportunities when the online food delivery industry started to bloom. There were job roles for food delivering personnel, there were jobs for maintaining the app at the backend developing new updates and features.
These are some of the reasons for the online food delivery industry to have gained such welcome by all. Even during pandemic times when the whole restaurant was shut, the online food delivery system was still operating and serving millions of customers across the globe. This shows the importance of this app and it can be assured that it is a business that cannot be downgraded at any cost.
How does the online food delivery system work?
Each online food delivery system comprises three apps like UberEats Clone, one for the users, one for the business owner, and one for the delivery person. Now let us look at how the food delivery app like UberEats works:
The user first needs to install the app and then sign up to avail of this service. Signing up is free and it can be done by entering one’s email id and name and other details or they can use their Gmail or Facebook account to sign in.
Once the user has signed in he/she can use all the features available in the app and order food. Customers can select the type of cuisine they prefer, restaurants, vegetarian or non-vegetarian dishes from the variety of options available.
Once the customer has selected the restaurant to take the food from and choose the food to eat then they are directed to the payment process available within the app. Customers can choose their convenient form of payment like debit/credit cards/ internet banking, e-wallet, and cash on delivery options are available. A number of gateways are available for easy operation.
Take customers order
Once the customer has placed the order, the restaurant owner accepts the order request from the customer. Then the owner passes the order to the kitchen to prepare the food.
Assign a delivery person
The owner then assigns a nearby food delivery personnel to collect the food from the restaurant and deliver it to the particular customer.
Accepting to deliver
When the restaurant owner assigns a task to deliver the food to the address, the delivery person can accept or deny the request. Once the request is accepted the delivery person goes to the restaurant to collect the food to be delivered.
Delivering to customer
After collecting food from the restaurant the delivery person uses the routing map to drive to the customer location and deliver the food. For this service, the person is rewarded with ratings and reviews by the customer.
Things to consider before creating an app
While building an UberEats clone app, one fact to consider before creating one is that there involves a set of 3 apps for the system to work. It will be efficient if an all-in-one app is created.
For users, apps make sure the registration process is user-friendly. Also, the search and filter option must be very effective to help with the customer choosing according to their preference.
For delivery partners apps, there must be an option to toggle between online and offline options. They must be able to accept the food or reject it by providing valid reasons. They must also be able to see their daily and monthly earning, performance chart, etc. to validate their performance. They must also keep updating their status like food picked up, out for delivery, and delivered for easy tracking.
The restaurant app must also be user-friendly for registration. The restaurant features must be enhanced in their profile in the app to attract more customers. Also when a customer makes a payment in the app it should be transferred to the restaurant immediately.
Huge demand in the market leads to increasing in pollution and heavy traffic. This issue cannot be left unnoticed as it is our responsibility to render a peaceful environment. Constant research is going on to replace the delivery vehicles with electric-based cars/bikes, drones, and robots. In the coming years, it is certain to see the approach taking a change.
