Why Your Ordering App Should Mirror Your In-Store Experience

Published on May 1, 2024

In a landscape oversaturated with look-alike apps, differentiation becomes the golden ticket. A quick stroll through your competitors’ apps reveals a striking similarity – a generic user interface devoid of any brand personality. So why should your ordering app blend in when your brand stands out?

A staggering 70% of all digital orders are placed through a restaurant’s branded app or website. This indicates customers strongly prefer ordering directly from the restaurant’s own app rather than a third-party app. Bridging the gap between your app and your restaurants unlocks a treasure trove of benefits, including:

Your Ordering App as an Extension of Your Brand

Your ordering app is more than just a tool for placing orders – it’s a window into your brand’s world. From the moment customers open your app, they should be greeted with visuals and messaging that evoke the same emotions and associations as stepping into your physical store. Whether it’s through custom graphics, branded colours or tailored messaging, your app should serve as an extension of your brand identity, fostering familiarity and loyalty among customers.

The Power of Visual Captivation

In today’s visually-driven society, aesthetics reigns supreme. An ordering app that is captivating to the eye enhances the overall user experience. From mouth-watering food photography to sleek interface design, every visual element plays a role in shaping the customer’s perception of your brand.

The Promise of Immediate ROI

But differentiation isn’t just about aesthetics – it’s also about delivering tangible results for your business. A well-designed and user-friendly app leads to increased order volume, higher customer satisfaction, and ultimately, greater revenue for your business.
