Build Food Pickup And Delivery App For Your Restaurant

Updated: Dec 2, 2020

In the era of lockdowns and social distancing, restaurants are increasingly exploring ways to optimize their on-premise pickups and online food ordering and delivery processes. According to our latest survey, the demand for pickup and delivery software shot up by 60% post the first lockdown phase. There are two ways to build food pickup and delivery app for your restaurant-

1. QR code- Your guests can scan the QR code, view the menu on their phone, order food from the digital menu, and select the option of pickup or delivery. All this is done on the guests’ phone and there is absolutely no need for them to download any mobile applications. This is a much simpler way of introducing online pickup and delivery to your guests. Investment required is often minimal. Companies such as PlumQR are providing the QR code-based pickup and delivery software for as low as $17.99 yearly.
