Often restaurant owners search online for finding a single or multi-chain restaurant online food delivery app or software. I have generally seen a lot of queries on Quora and Google that directly ask for a link for a software that can be used for their upcoming concept of food delivery service in India or USA. The fact is that to have a single or multi-restaurant online food delivery application, you must consult with a food delivery app development company like iCoderz Solutions.
What is a restaurant online food delivery app?
An online food delivery application is a software that is designed and developed for multiple smartphone platforms for making food ordering easy and simple via a mobile application. We all are familiar with the famous food delivery apps like Zomato and Swiggy. These are the perfect examples of mobile app development that defines food delivery service.
A food delivery application company makes sure that your food delivery business gets sore after developing the app. Let us talk in detail about the same.
Difference between Single/Multi-chain food delivery application
A single and multi-chain food delivery application is a little different from each other. We can best define the difference in this way. A single restaurant online food delivery application serves for a single food outlet or restaurant. Hence the restaurant app is designed for the use of a single food outlet owner.
Likewise, a multi-restaurant online food delivery app is designed for a single restaurant with multiple food outlets. It can be food outlets in a single city or multiple cities. But the application is designed once for various outlets. The functions and technical features of the application remain the same. Depending upon the locations, the driver-partners are assigned for multiple restaurant food delivery applications.
Features of Single Restaurant Food Delivery App
Well, a single food delivery outlet requires three essential apps for making the food delivery process successful. The application functions effectively with the help of these three apps.
- Customer App
- Single Food Outlet App
- Driver App
At iCoderz Solutions, we also design a unique web dashboard for food delivery outlet owner that makes managing the customers, drivers and offers comfortable and simple. You must inquire about the same by logging on to our official website.
Features of Multi Restaurant Food Delivery App
Well, a multi-restaurant food delivery outlet also requires three essential apps for making the food delivery process successful. The application functions effectively with the help of these three apps.
- Customer App
- Single Food Outlet App
- Driver App
As mentioned earlier, at iCoderz Solutions, we also design a unique web dashboard for food delivery outlet owners that makes managing the customers, drivers and offers comfortable and simple. For a multi-restaurant or chain of restaurants- the web menu is the best thing that any outlet owner can ask for.
All the different restaurant orders can be tracked and supervised via a single dashboard screen. Though the restaurant app of your other restaurants is managed by a restaurant manager, the entire business can be controlled by you via a web dashboard screen.
Isn’t that incredible? Well, this is one of the best reasons for investing in an online food delivery app.
Why Food Delivery Business?
Well, food delivery is one of the profitable businesses in 2020. Let us not wholly depend on the pandemic necessities and focus on the food delivery business. Yes, it is right that during the pandemic the dine-in restaurant business has got severely affected. It is just the online food delivery app that is helping the restaurants and food outlets to survive. Though the restaurants have started operating like before still the footfall of the customers are less than the standard footfall by 70%.
Currently, the food delivery business promises to grow at 31.7% CAGR (2017-2026). While you approach a food delivery app development company or a mobile app development company for developing a single or multi restaurant online food delivery app, you are helping your business to survive the worst. Yes, food delivery is one of the ways to help your business survive the worst. If it can survive the pandemic, it can survive anything- what do you think?
The increasing number of smartphone users is one of the significant reasons that food delivery businesses can quickly help you lift your online sales. Today food delivery apps are downloaded as an essential app because people often order food online as they need a change and are super excited to order food from their favourite restaurants.
Types of Food Delivery Apps
Single restaurant online food delivery apps have two choices to get themselves registered for the food delivery service. The first choice is via the third-party apps like Zomato and Swiggy, and the second choice is by designing and developing their food delivery application like Dominos and La Pino’z.
No wonder, the La Pino’z outlet has earned maximum business in India, especially Gujarat during the lockdown period and even now because of their multi restaurant online food delivery app that is solely designed for themselves. Though La Pino’z and Domino’s are registered with third-party food delivery apps like Swiggy and Zomato for delivering food, they accept more home delivery orders only via their independent food delivery application.
If the customers order their food via the restaurant’s online food delivery app, then they are entitled with many benefits which they do not get while ordering with third-party food delivery apps like Zomato.
Benefits of Investing in an Online Food Delivery App
So, here is why we help you explain investing in an independent single or multi restaurant online food delivery app. I agree that your restaurant can start the food delivery service by registering with the third-party services but do you know that approx. 45% of restaurant professionals have found out that third-party food delivery apps interfere between the customer and the food delivery outlet owner. This ultimately does not help to grow your customers in the long run.
Let us focus on the significant benefits of investing in an iOS apps development or Android apps development or mobile apps development that is for your online food delivery outlet.
1. Customer retention
A survey that was recently done in the USA, the food delivery joints found out that 52% of the customers feel flexible and comfortable to order from the branded restaurant delivery app than third-party apps. Customers share that there are more offers to grab on an independent app than a third-party food delivery application.
This is quite true. Restaurant outlet owners generally try to invest in their food delivery application because they find it easy to modify and publish offers. The online food delivery app owners make exclusive offers for customers who order from their branded mobile app.
2. More Revenue Generation
There is no commission system when you have your food delivery application designed for your single or multi-chain outlet. Customers also find it more flexible to pay without having worried about any extra cost charged by the third-party apps.
When you hire a food delivery app development company for designing and developing a food delivery application like Dominos and La Pino’z, you must invest in the development cost. But on the same page, you are saving a lot of money that is generally spent on the commission part.
Also, if you think that you could not invest in the design and development of a food delivery application, then you can select the monthly subscription model that sounds extremely reasonable than the food delivery app. Investing in the monthly subscription food delivery solution is highly cost-efficient as well as time-efficient. It is best for the outlets that wish to switch to an online food delivery app service without having to invest more time or money.
3. Branding & Awareness
An independent restaurant delivery application can get more branding and awareness amongst their niche or targeted customer market than the third-party apps. While your customers have downloaded your complete food delivery application, then you can remind customers about your new dishes, new offers and comprehensive new services via push notifications.
For all these exclusive services, the third-party food delivery apps often charge a lot of fees from the restaurant outlets. They charge a different marketing subscription fee for helping your outlet to appear in the top searches on their app. Hence, if you do not pay the marketing fees, then it is likely or possible that your outlet does not appear in the search result quickly.
