Here are the best food delivery apps. With a couple of taps on your smartphone your dishes are delivered to your home in no time, to do so you just need to use the apps that I have listed especially for you in this guide.
The decision to order lunch online or dinner online, also called food delivery, is increasingly taking hold in the modern era. With food delivery you can free yourself from the chore of cooking and from the stress of crowded places. All you have to do is choose the type of dish and order it through one of the many apps that offer this service.
The system works according to your location and relies on restaurants, m also on pizzerias and various local types that have two ways to adopt the home delivery service via app or website.
- The first system involves affiliation to a service, such as Deliveroo o Foodora, in order to rely on a logistic network.
- The second system is called instead Network of restaurants. In the latter case, the restaurateur obtains the presence on a dedicated website and the relative visibility by those who place the order, an example of this method is Just Eat.
The difference lies in the fact that with Deliveroo you will have logistical support, while with Just Eat the restaurateur will have to have staff for deliveries and related means of transport.
