Delivery time: Customers are preferring fast deliveries with maximum efficiency. So, you should deliver the dishes in the estimated time given in the application so that they can get an estimate of the delivery of their order.

Real-time tracking: Even though this feature is mostly used by taxi applications but nowadays, it is being adopted by food delivery apps which gives convenience to customers to easily track their order. Pizza hut, Zomato, Postmates and every other food delivery app is adopting a similar method.

Review and ratings: This feature should be there in every application so that customers can easily give reviews and ratings at the end of receiving the services. It also helps organizations to analyze what customers think about their business and take necessary actions thereafter.

Not every entrepreneur has much experience in building an application perfectly. Some of the challenges are also there. If there are challenges, there are solutions attached to them you just have to conquer the challenges coming in your way:

Target audience: One of the major questions after starting an application is how to find the right audience for the business. The end-user is the customer so, you have to be a little more specific than just delivering orders to the customer’s locations. You need to target that part of the population that doesn’t care about the diet and just want to grab a bite and hang out with friends. Try to create a small customer base and then think of expanding after establishing your business in a particular area.

Competitors: Every business whether small scale or large has competitors in the market that they have to face every now and then. Before actually starting your business and launching your app in the market, you should do detailed market research to find out what exactly is missing upon which you can work to make your business model better than theirs. Just a little bit of more attention and you will shine among your competitors.

The UI/UX: The interface of the application should be attractive and easily understandable so that the customers can easily access the nearest restaurant with great ease, right from the navigation. Not just the food delivery app, but every application has to have great UI/UX, especially for the customers.
