The restaurant and fast food business is a place that is never going to be out of demand because every person on earth has to eat. This is why existing businesses keep experimenting with new approaches and startups jump in with new ideas every day. With the help of the Internet, food ordering and delivery business solutions started rising online. When the smartphone created a storm in the world, food ordering and delivery apps were bound to follow and they did in various forms. Now monthly subscription-based food ordering and delivery solutions are the latest trends.
Till now, there were only two famous food ordering and delivery models.
The former is an aggregator type model. A company like Doordash or Grubhub or Uber Eats will develop a complete food ordering and distribution solution. They will have a website, Android apps, and iOS apps for customers, drivers, and business owners. They would then publicize it to customers and lure restaurant owners to join it. The only problem with this model is that business owners have to pay a large reduction of the total revenue to the aggregators. It will be as large as 40%. In addition, business owners do not have a mobile app with their branding. It would be like a mall where they have a shop, a lot like selling goods on Amazon.
This is the business model in which owners of restaurants or food outlets hire a mobile app development company and get them to develop their mobile apps for iOS and Android. They also have a website for the same purpose. The good thing about this model is that they do not have to give even a percentage of their revenue to anyone. Also, they can let other owners use their software. In other words, they can become aggregators because they own the software. The only drawback to this model is the large capital that they will have to invest in mobile app development and web development.
To solve the problems of these models and both are the best in the world, the third model exists monthly subscription-based food ordering and delivery solutions (SaaS). In this model, all business owners are required to subscribe to a plan that fits their needs and pocket. The SaaS-based solution provider company has already developed all the necessary mobile applications and websites. Therefore, business owners or startups will have their iOS apps and Android apps for customers, drivers, and owners. Apart from this, they will also have a website for customers and owners, through which they can easily manage the entire business. They will have their app and will not have to invest a huge amount.
This is why monthly subscription-based fast food business and delivery solutions are in demand.
