Being a very strong and technology-oriented software development service company in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, Emstell have always prioritized the quality and delivery of projects when preparing the initial plan and managing the project till its closure.
The project should be well documented from the very beginning and the documentation should be used to clearly draw and design each page of the page. Using interactive design prototyping tools, the entire flow of the website or the app have to be laid out. Both parties must review this in detail to confirm the complete pages before starting the project.
Once the project development starts, each module and sub module are spitted to multiple components and assigned to developers, QA and business teams to go through the development, testing and validation cycles. Whenever a testable portion of the application is complete, those are handed over to the clients for testing.

Kuwait offers a wide variety of restaurants serving various cuisines from across the globe, making it a key food destination in Middle East. Surveys says that by 2020 – all international restaurant chains will have a branch in Kuwait. Alongside the fine dining experience offered, food delivery is a main stream of revenue for the restaurants and food joints. The food ordering and delivery apps have marked a great change in the way people interact with restaurants and are a big advancement in the restaurant business all over the world. They provide convenience and accessibility to the modern foodie who has no time for the trek to his favourite restaurant.
The growth in the market is so high that major worldwide acquisitions are being conducted on apps like these. The reason for the growth of apps is the convenience at which your favourite food is delivered on time to your doorstep. Hence, to grow in a market that is competitive, it is necessary to understand what ticks all the boxes.
The fundamentals and basics of all food delivery apps are the same. The app is created for the end user; the foodie and hence, a simple and clean design, minimalistic UI/UX with no unnecessary clutter, visual enhancement, and local restaurants data integration is what the mobile application needs.
The following are a few functions and features that need to be present in your mobile food ordering app.
When the registration process is simple and easy, it enables the consumer to start ordering or using the app more quickly. Having Social Media integration for logging in helps.
ACCESS TO DATA
Data is King. Here, the data refers to the information like the number, name of the restaurant, menus, cuisine, description of the dishes etc. All of this information can be accessed through the API used in the mobile apps.
Before going to the payment page, the consumer must have access to the total bill for the order and have the option to reduce or add new items to the order at the time.
Online payment for the sale and introducing offers for online payment helps improve customer relations and reduce losses due to customer issues.
TRACKING & DELIVERY TIME
Inbuilt tracking information for the mobile app enables the tracking of the order. An estimate of delivery time can be calculated using a complex algorithm that takes into account information and reduces the stress levels of the end user.
Allowing the customer to rate and review the service and the food separately helps understand who was at fault for the poor rating. This empowers the business to work on improvements.
For a good food ordering mobile app to function, it has to have 3 variants present- one for the end user- one for the restaurateur- one for the delivery peopleThey have to have certain functions specialised for them.
For example, the end user has to have a collection of new menus and restaurants to choose from. This feature is not necessary for both the restaurateur and the delivery executive. For the delivery executive, tracking and direction feature is a must and for the restaurateur, order taking capability is a must.
Having these features and having them run smoothly is what makes a food ordering app perfect. A good mobile app development team is a great boon to the strong growth curve for food ordering apps similar to Talabat or Carriage.
