Things to consider while developing a food delivery app 

Many things have to be kept in mind while building a food delivery app such as:

1. Types of start-up models 

There are two kinds of start-up models: Aggregator model and Food delivery with logistic support. The aggregator model is very basic and includes the traditional way of ordering food from the menu. This model needs customer-side and restaurant-side apps to give and receive orders. 

Under the second model, the restaurant will join hands with the company and offers logistic support. It is a more advanced option than the basic aggregator model.

2. Online payment mode 

These days, people prefer making payments through online modes. You must add online payment options to your food delivery app like PayPal, e-wallet, and UPI for the comfort of customers. 

3. Access to information 

Customers must find all the data related to hotels, food items, dishes, and ingredients on the app. Apart from that, the app must also show live tracking of food with other data such as calorie count and ingredients used in the dish. 

3. Reviews and feedback 

Ratings and feedback help the customers to choose the best restaurant. Your food delivery app must show the correct ratings and reviews to the customers so that they can order food anytime from the best restaurants. 

4. Delivery time 

Your app must show how long is the distance of the restaurant from your home and the time it will take to deliver the food to your home. In this way, the customers will know how long to wait for their food. 

5. GPS tracking 

Through GPS tracking, one can know where the food delivery guy has reached. It also helps a delivery person to track your home address.
