An Artisanal Food Delivery App for Health Enthusiasts
Industry - On-Demand Food Delivery
The past few years have brought a health wave across the globe. Not only have people started
following dedicated exercise routines, but they are also paying attention to what they eat
every day. The consumption of processed food has taken a backseat everywhere and the
adoption of artisanal food has grown exponentially. Unfortunately, finding authentic
artisanal food is nothing short of a tough row to hoe. In many situations, consumers have to
browse through the shelves of different departmental stores or go through different online
platforms to find organic artisanal food, which can be quite nerve-wracking.
APIU, now a successful artisan food delivery service provider, wanted to overcome this
challenge by developing a mobile application where consumers can find artisanal food
prepared using traditional recipes and get it delivered at their doorstep within a few
clicks. The goal was to develop an all-in-one food delivery solution that primarily targeted
people who are fond of artisanal food.
APIU got in touch with RV Technologies with the vision and wanted us to build a custom food
delivery application for artisan food fanatics. Having already worked on multiple food
delivery solutions, we were well-familiar with the market, which made us the most reliable
development partner for APIU.
Our team jumped on board and turned a regular idea into a cross-platform mobile application
that would go on to be an integral part of the daily life of many health-conscious
As per the client’s vision, the goal was to develop a platform where customers could easily
find their favorite artisan cuisines from different countries and order a flavored cuisine
for any occasion. So, like any other on-demand delivery platform, our team had to build
three separate application modules for customers, drivers, and artisan restaurants.
APIU also wanted to provide customers with the ability to schedule their order in advance
for the coming week, events, or regular get-togethers, and get it delivered to their
doorstep on time. To do this, our team had to come up with a design approach that would keep
the application clutter-free and allow users to access all the features easily.
Developing an All-in-One Artisan-Themed Food Delivery Application from the
Like many popular food delivery applications, APIU also wanted to follow the famous
aggregator model where multiple Artisan-themed restaurants could set up their business
profile, upload the menu, and start receiving orders from different customers.
Now, to build a successful aggregator model, it was necessary to develop three separate
modules for drivers, customers, and artisan restaurants respectively. All these three app
modules were designed with varying features to provide users with the necessary
Some of the basic features of Artisan Food Delivery included:
In-App Payment Support
Real-time navigation for drivers
The Customer App
1 User Login
Having a personal dashboard is a prerequisite for any food delivery application as it allows
customers to manage their orders, payments, and addresses in one place. To access this
dashboard, we integrated multiple sign-up/log-in options to keep user-friendliness intact. With
Artisan Food Delivery, users have the liberty to set up their profile using a phone number or
their Gmail account.
While browsing through the food menu to place an order, the customers can choose between doorstep
delivery or a pickup. Based on the selection, the app automatically decides whether to assign a
food delivery agent for the order or not. In case of pickup, the customers will get regular
alerts via Push Notification regarding the status of their order.
3 Schedule Orders
One of the major USPs of Artisan Food Delivery is its “Advanced Scheduling” option. Basically,
customers can schedule their meals for the coming week in advance and get them delivered to
their doorstep on time. Customers can also schedule orders for particular events and decide the
entire catering menu right on their smartphones.
4 Food Categories
In addition to restaurant-wise search results, customers can also customize the results based on
specific food categories. Our team integrated a dedicated “Category” module that displayed a
list of all the artisan food categories, allowing customers to find restaurants that specialize
in particular cuisines.
5 Multiple Payment Methods
For any on-demand food delivery application, it’s essential to provide customers with a secure
payment environment so that they can pay online without worrying about monetary fraud. Our team
integrated a secure and fully-functional payment gateway that ensures 100% secure transitions
and allowed customers to process their payments using different methods.
The Driver’s App
1 Order Alerts
As soon as a customer places an order, all the nearby delivery agents receive a notification
alert on their phones. The drivers have the liberty to decide whether they would like to accept
the order or not. Once the driver confirms an order, he automatically receives the customer
details and turn-by-turn navigation to the restaurant.
2 Real-Time Route Optimization
By integrating Google Maps API and Apple’s MapKit, we optimized route calculation to achieve
maximum accuracy. Once the driver picks an order from the restaurant, the app automatically
calculates the shortest route to reach the customer’s doorstep on time and ensure they can enjoy
a warm meal.
3 Online- Offline Status
With a single tap on their screen, the drivers can switch between the online and offline modes.
When a customer is online, he automatically starts receiving order alerts via Push
Notifications. But, as soon as one goes online, the app would take him off the radar
4 Payout- Commissions
At the end of the day, the drivers can go to their in-app wallets and transfer their earnings,
commissions, and tips to their personal bank accounts. With separate modules for earnings, tips,
and restaurant commissions, it becomes quite easier for the drivers to manage their monthly
payouts and keep a track of their income.
The Restaurant App
1 Menu Management
Restaurant owners and managers can sign into their personal modules and update their menus using
easy-to-use drop-down tabs. They can also update pricing, availability, and customization
options for each dish individually so that customers always have access to an up-to-date
2 Promos & Exclusive Deals
To boost the overall customer acquisition rate, restaurant owners can also set up and run special
discounts and offers. With a detailed restaurant dashboard, they can also track the progress of
these promotional campaigns and evaluate the monthly customer acquisition rate easily.
3 Payment Management
Restaurant owners can also process their daily payments and transfer them to their personal
accounts within a few taps. They can also configure auto-payout to automatically transfer the
entire earnings to the bank account.
