The delicious invention of food ordering applications
The home meal delivery market is not a recent invention, but it is currently experiencing spectacular growth. Many independent pizzerias and fast-food outlets have been delivering meals in their geographical area for years, if not decades. Today, the largest delivery platforms connect with as many restaurateurs as possible to offer the best possible service.
More and more people are using restaurant delivery applications. The majority of them lack the time to cook. Thanks to these applications, you can have your food delivered any day, anywhere and usually in no time, as restaurants learn new algorithms to prepare food in advance.
All you have to do is download one of the best meal delivery apps, make your choice among the restaurants around you and order with your smartphone. An example of such an application is Ordering Stack.
Let’s see together what the best applications are for having food delivered at home, work or even in a park!
Uber Eats is one of the best applications for home restaurant deliveries, due to the phenomenal success of the UBER application, which connects you with a driver.
Uber Eats works in partnership with a wide variety of restaurants. From international chains such as McDonald’s to local restaurants, just about any customer’s desires and tastes can be satisfied.
With UberEat, it is possible to search for restaurants by their cuisine type and order food quickly. You can then follow the progress of the order and the delivery through the application.
For UberEat’s users, there are special offers, only available in the application, to get discounts or 2 dishes for the price of one.
Deliveroo offers home restaurant delivery services in several hundred cities around the world. This application has become one of the most popular in Europe.
Thanks to this service, it is possible to order food in all kinds of restaurants, from fast food to gourmet restaurants. The fast meal delivery and discount vouchers appeal to customers who want the best food delivered to their home.
Glovo is a new meal delivery application that comes straight from Barcelona. It has quickly established itself in its market in Spain and South America. Glovo is currently making its debut in many European countries.
Glovo goes further than its competitors, who focus on the food service sector. The couriers in this application can deliver ready meals, but also groceries from the supermarket, medicine from the pharmacy, or even something to prepare a last minute aperitif.
Glovo doesn’t see its agents as just deliverypeople, but as couriers who can be entrusted with an item of clothing to be taken to the dry cleaners, or an important document that needs to be delivered quickly.
Just Eat is one of the first home delivery services for ready meals. It was founded in 1998 under the name Allo Resto before becoming Just Eat, following a takeover by a British company. Unlike its more recent competitors, Just Eat does not use a fleet of independent couriers. Instead, the application references restaurants that already have their own delivery service. The customer using Just Eat therefore ensures that it uses salaried couriers.
Just Eat collaborates with thousands of restaurants that offer home meal delivery services in thousands of cities throughout Europe. Just Eat offers a wide variety of cuisines such as pizza, sushi, vegetarian, organic, Italian, Indian, Thai, Chinese, and many others. In sum, the application offers a choice of around 50 different culinary specialties, depending on the order area.
Since 2014, Ordering Stack has been serving as the main software house for AmRest, a European group which owns KFC, Burger King and Pizza Hut. Ordering Stack created an operating system for stand-alone kiosks in restaurants and also built applications for ordering food from AmRest restaurants. Their main advantage is much faster delivery than on other platforms and, what’s more, the fact that it’s free in most cases. People from all over central Europe choose applications from Ordering Stack, knowing that they ensure fast delivery of their favourite food.
