Business Models

Types of Food Delivery Platforms We Deliver

Order-only (aggregator apps) solution

The most widespread type of restaurant delivery software, aggregator platforms act as middlemen between buyers and catering establishments (local cafes and restaurants).
Order-only apps don’t deal with food preparation and delivery. Rather, their goal is to facilitate transactions between the two parties and act as a meeting point for each side.

Order and delivery

This business model lets aggregators handle order management and delivery when restaurant owners don’t have the possibility to use food delivery logistics software on their side.
Order and delivery apps introduce the functionality for couriers and facilitate their interactions with consumers and restaurants.

Vertically integrated solution

This model entails that the food delivery system software manages every aspect of the service in one place.
Vertically integrated apps and websites bring together cooking, ordering, and delivery and let their owners control the efficiency of each service tier and surpass customer expectations.
