Build Your Best Food Delivery App Like UberEats

Food is not just a necessity but an emotion. (Probably) Everyone in this world needs food to survive and to celebrate the beauty of life itself.

Sorry for the highly philosophical summary on the blog, if you are a real foodie you will understand the reverence I give to food. Anyways, we are here to help you develop a business in this ever growing and never failing industry.

The only reason why Uber (the already successful No.1 taxi app business in the world) decided to venture into an on-demand food delivery business was the endless possibilities in this business model.

How is Uber Eats different from Uber?

The core working of the business is quite similar. While Uber picks and drops you from one place to another. Similarly, the Uber Eats services is like a cab service for your food. You order your favorite dish from your preferred restaurant using the Uber Eats app, and you get the food delivered to you.

So in essence both the app work quite similar with sharing features like the live location of the vehicle (for a cab or food delivery) and multiple payment options. On a large scale, the business is quite different and probably more profitable than the taxi app business.

Benefits Of Starting An UberEats Like Food Delivery Startup

Uber Eats is not the only one rolling in dough (Pun intended) with on-demand food delivery app development approach. Many startups have gone on to become a global hit with this business approach.

You too can benefit from developing a food delivery app like UberEats just like Seamless, GrubHub, DoorDash, Foodpanda, and Postmates.

Benefits of Food Delivery App for Business Owners:

  • Increase customer base manifolds with a new avenue

Models of food delivery startups:

If you choose to go on with the food delivery business like Uber Eats then below are the options of business models that you can follow.

1. The Aggregator Model

If you don’t want to be too involved in the whole business process and make a simple commission off of every order, then the aggregator model is the right choice for you. In this food delivery business model you will own a digital website and app portal where the restaurant owners and customers register and deal with the orders.

The customer will order from the app, and the restaurant owner will get the order detail. Once the food is prepared, a delivery boy from the restaurant will deliver the parcel to the drop location. The portal owner will make a commission over the order.

2. Food order platform with logistics

Though the aggregator model seems safe, remember safe won’t be much profitable. If you wish to make good money, then you need to raise the stake of the business. This business model has the logistics part of the process pinned to you.

Once the food is prepared, your employee will pick up the parcel and drop it off to the customer. This way you get a larger chunk of profit as you will be doing the delivery. So the restaurant owner will only get the amount for the food item and the amount left will be your profit entirely.

How is UberEats Clone Script a better option?

Developing a complete food delivery app from scratch will need a high budget and a lot of time as every aspect of the app will be built from the ground up. An estimated amount of developing an app could go anywhere from $50,000 to $1,50,000 or even more according to your design and app feature needs.

On the other hand, if you go with an UberEats clone script food delivery app development, the time to market will reduce from 8 or 9 months to 48 hours. Also, the project cost drops to 1/10th of the app development from scratch approach.

How does this next to impossible change occur? Due to the way clone script app development works.

The clone script has the toughest part of app development cracked down for you. The most time and money consuming part of app development is the front-end and back-end coding of the app. Coding is 80% of the project timeline.

With the app clone script, you get a pre-set app source code that is built from UberEats or any other top food delivery app. That way you get the best app features that are the most trending. The clone app’s UI/UX design is completely customizable to your vision.

Factors to consider while choosing a food delivery app clone script

Check the Number of Applications that will be built for Desktop (Web App) and mobile versions.

The number of Payment Systems are supported by the clone script like Debi-Credit card, Net Banking, UPI, and App Wallets.

Whether the app support Push Notifications and SMS integration to update about order status and payment.

The App must have a feature of Ratings and Reviews for the customers to rate the food as well as the delivery experience.
