The Business Benefits of Food Delivery Apps

Main / Blog / The Business Benefits of Food Delivery Apps

Technological progress has transformed every aspect of modern life. We bank online. We learn online. When we're hungry and busy, often our first instinct is to load up a food delivery app. Calling a pizza place is so old-school!

It's no wonder why. These apps are fast, convenient, and their popularity grows every day. People use them for everything from an easy after-work dinner to catered events like parties and weddings.

A survey conducted in the US shows just how popular meal delivery is. 26% of respondents use food delivery services once a week, while 24% order food 2-3 times per week. Some have meals delivered even more often, with 8% ordering 6 times per week. Only 2% report they never order meal delivery, balanced out by the same number ordering every day.

You can draw numerous conclusions from this study, but it's indisputable that the food delivery industry is growing fast.

Food delivery apps and services have other benefits, too. Restaurant and café owners have the opportunity not only to offer a valuable new service to their customers but also to harness the benefits of modern e-commerce. Loyalty programs, social sharing, and even marketing tools like food constructors can all be built into the apps.

Restaurants that embrace these technologies have noted an average of a 15% increase in sales, just over the space of a few months.

At Dinarys, we have plenty of experience in developing apps for food delivery, and we wanted to share some of what we've learned.

Essential Functions of a Food Delivery App

Bells and whistles aside, there are a few things every app should include to provide a good experience to hungry users.

They hired Dinarys to develop and redesign their existing website, including mobile-optimizing it for phones and tablets.

There were also some special requirements, particularly the integration of different systems using third-party APIs.

In all, the project extended far beyond a basic web redesign, including features such as:
