There are some of  Problems Customers Face while ordering food :

Where to order/what to order?—?Zomato solves this to a point, however figuring out what to consume is still a massive trouble.

Paradox of choice/Decision paralysis?—?All restaurants tend to have an extended listing of fifty options that you can choose from. They assume it’s range, we think it’s confusion.

Ordering meals?—?All eating places have an À l.  A. Carte menu, meaning you need to order individual dishes. Now those dishes are crafted for two–three people in terms of amount. Which approach, in case you are alone you may’t order for yourself. You pay greater and for this reason waste extra.

Minimum order cost?—?This is the largest irritant in meals transport. Restaurants say, “You HAVE to reserve for Rs. 500, and handiest then will I supply the meals.” Why does it ought to be like that?

The nature of meals?—?Restaurants intentionally spike up the meals with oil and spices to make it greater indulgent. This is not a sustainable way of life option.

Order monitoring?—?More often than now not, you turn out to be calling the eating place to check “Khaana kab aayega?” Doesn’t this annoy you?

Order, meals layout food, each day changing menu, app based ordering, healthful & clean food, unique concept) for customers that no restaurant can provide. Our energy lies in era and constructing lovely products, and we can retain to outperform all people else like we’ve achieved to this point.

Our Take

The particular idea that Bite Club brings onto the Food-Tech desk appears promising, in particular in light of dynamic menu that it gives coupled with an array of functions like app-primarily based ordering and no minimal order. However, with an excessively flooded food-tech marketplace in India, it might have a difficult time dealing with the opposite upcoming startups. Zomato, with massive financial firepower has already determined to up the ante by finding out to make investments $ 50 Mn to enter the meals shipping market.

The figures and statistics showcase the big recognition that Bite Club is gathering through the day. In the arena of startups, though, you can still in no way be too positive. When endless competition are watching with an eagle eye, a single mistake can spell one’s doom. Lets wait and watch!!
