Different types of Food Delivery Applications.

Restaurant Management​

If the owner possesses more than one restaurant in the same city then they can deliver the food and share the menu of all their restaurants through this single application. The end to end management of the system is done by restaurant owners. They can create their everyday food menu , food offers , they are responsible for all the modifications in their order, they can fix the payment, service charges and all the orders placed by themselves. Delivery of the product can be easily managed by them. Any offers in the products or any increase in cost can be customised by them.

In this system, it supports both cash on payment and online payment even though there would be no commission charges for the third party. The amount spent on app management would be few. This application cannot be used for the comparison or the competition among nearby other restaurants. Food customisation , menu customisation, order handling can be done independently. A single app is required for the multiple restaurants in multiple cities

The major disadvantages are the promotion of this application is very few. Visitors and tourists would be unknown about this app and gradually the order placed through this application will reduces. There is a need of separate team to manage the software side of this application so it would be a difficulty.
