Want To Build An On-Demand Delivery Application? Learn How

Published 4 months ago


Got a restaurant and want to start a food delivery business? Then you must check out this blog. Here we have discussed how you can develop an app like UberEats.


During the past lockdown, food delivery businesses made millions. Yes, they were operating before the pandemic happened, but the business growth was impeccable during the lockdown.

Here are some statistics to back it up: 



So, if you are running a restaurant or a food business, you can try this business model. Of course, you need to have an app for that to offer maximum convenience to users. If we see Australia's market scenario alone, we will see that UberEats is the most popular app out there than others. It's a fairly competitive market, so your app must stand out. 

If you ask an app development company in Australia for this app, you will get four panels:

  • Consumer
  • Restaurant
  • Delivery 
  • Admin


Consumer :

It is the panel that the consumers will see and use. Consumers will select a nearby restaurant, go through the menu, proceed to order, and pay. The restaurant will receive the order and start preparing it. Consumers will know how long it will take and when the courier will take the order from the restaurant.

The courier will receive the order and go to the customer's residence with it, and the customer finally receives the order. 



Here are the features this panel should have:



Registration/ Log In :

Users will have to create an account using personal details, address, and email id. Or they can use their social media login for the same. An OTP will be sent to verify the account, and then the user can start using the app.

Restaurant List :

Now, consumers will search for nearby restaurants that are listed on the app. From the list, he will pick one and then check out the menu.

Search Bar :

This search bar allows users to search for a particular restaurant or dish. In short, it will reduce the search time of the consumer.

Place An Order :

After choosing a restaurant and a menu, the consumer is now ready to place an order. He can either choose to pay online or offline.

Order Tracking :

This facility allows consumers to track what's going on with the order. Is it being prepared, or is it on its way? How long will it take to receive the destination? Users can track all this information using this feature.

Payment Options :

Consumers will choose an appropriate payment option and use it to pay for the order.

Notifications :

Notifications are a clever way to inform consumers about the order. If the restaurant accepts or rejects the order, the consumer receives notification immediately. 
It's an important feature; that's why an app development agency stresses its importance on all interfaces.

Discounts And Offers/ Promo Code :

These apps usually offer discounts to users, like "first-time user bonus," festival offers, etc. If the consumers have a code, they can apply it to get a discount.

Reviews And Ratings :

The feature allows consumers to posts reviews and ratings on the application about the app, delivery service, the restaurant, and food quality.

Rewards And Gamification :

This section offers referral rewards to users. Do you think it's getting complicated? Being one of the affordable app developers, we assure you that it's not.


Restaurant :


User Registration/ Login :

Restaurant owners create an account on the platform to list their business.

Listing :

Then they list the restaurant by providing all the details, images, etc.

Menu Management :

Restaurant owners can decide what to include in a menu. Also, they can decide if they are running any special menus.

Order Management :

This feature allows them to take control of the order from start to end.

Offer Management :

It lets restaurateurs decide which offers to run.

Notifications :

Managers receive notifications regarding the order, and payment received, and when customers receive the order.

Order Tracking :

It lets them check how far the order is from the original destination.

Payment Tracking :

It helps managers to keep track of the payments, both paid and pending ones.

Support :

It allows restaurant managers to assist consumers.

Reviews And Ratings :

The manager can go through the ratings received and strategize to improve operations.


Delivery :


Login/ Registration :

It's the same as other panels.

Notifications :

The delivery personnel receives notifications about the order, address, and payment.

Tracking :

This option assists the delivery company in keeping track of the guys and work accordingly if something happens.

Delivery Management (Multiple Order Management) :

The delivery company will use this feature to keep track of multiple orders.


Admin :


Restaurant Management :

The admin can manage the restaurant listing process and remove one if it consistently gets bad reviews.

Order Management :

The admin can cancel an order, much like the restaurant.

Consumer Management :

Same as restaurant management, the admin can delete a consumer's account.

Notifications :

Admin can decide when to send notifications to concerned parties.

Multi-Store Management :

The feature assists the admin in the management of multiple restaurants.

Multiple Payment Management  :

The admin can manage the payment gateways available on the app.
