Do you order take out at your place whether it could be your home, your office or anywhere you want? Everyone does that right. When 99% of you will agree with us for the first sentence; 90% of you will agree that they use Ubereats for almost every takeout. How do we know that? Well, stats speak to us.

According to the report, with nearly six million downloads, UberEats was the most popular food delivery app in the United Kingdom (UK) in 2021. This is one of the top food delivery mobile apps in UK.

But do you know why people love Uber Eats? To be honest, there is not just one reason that we are sure about. It could be their quick delivery time, the higher number of restaurants, or amazing mobile app features or it could be there are not many amazing apps exist that can give tough competition to UberEats. By the way, you can create a food delivery app that can give tough competition to UberEats. We will help you with that.

How To Develop On-Demand Food Delivery Mobile App

There is no pressure on you to an exact same food delivery mobile app just as UberEats. But there are various things that should be as same as the Ubereats. Let's Explore them.

Consider Food Delivery Industry Trends

Just as in every other industry, the food delivery mobile app does not stick to one single trend. So, to keep your mobile application keep trending for your target audience. Let's explore some of the trends that can help you get started with the food delivery mobile app.

Social Media Integration

Do you think, social media is just for communication and friends to have fun? Well, not anymore. Social media presence and integration is one of the important factors for every brand out there. It will help you stay connected with your target audience, and deliver a customized user experience based on their suggestion.

Virtual Assistant

Even though we are familiar with the entire working of the mobile application, we need help sometimes. Whether it could be to inform the food delivery partner about the location or some extra suggestion to the restaurant partner. Assisting the users in every way might not be possible for you so you can provide virtual assistance through your mobile application. It will enhance the trust factor for your users by offering them quick assistance services.

Smart Device Integration

Should mobile apps work only through mobiles? of course not!!! As the websites should be mobile friendly, the mobile apps should be accessible through the web, smart devices and many more. More and more people like to stay updated with their order updates through their smartwatches. So, even if you don't start by allowing them to order through their smartwatches, you can at least send the push notification about their order updates and other marketing offers that can lure them to browse through your food delivery mobile app and get it delivered.

Finalize The Features And Functionalities

Of course, it's a food delivery mobile application, you can not change the features and functionalities your mobile app is going to offer. But the thing you can do is make it more user-friendly. Hire app developers that can make your mobile application more browseable and user-friendly Let's figure out the way how you can make some of the basic features unique for your mobile app.

Sign up & log in Functionality

Your food delivery mobile app will have login functionality without a doubt. But rather than asking for login id passwords every single time they open your mobile app; ask them to integrate the mobile app with social networks like Google, Meta and so on.

The lengthy signup process can tire out the users and eventually turn them away from your app. But social network interaction will help you get all the required details without asking them to enter.


Being a food delivery mobile application, users will search for different dishes, restaurants or just food specifications. You can offer sort or filter functionality that can make their search process easy and manageable.

Along with that, You can take advantage of Artificial Intelligence technology that can offer them the suggestion of dishes and restaurants based on their previous order or search history, their preferences, their location or even city weather.

Order Placement

How long do the users are allowed to change their orders? Well, you can allow users to change their orders till the last moment of the order placement. Along with that, you can suggest a few other dishes based on their food products added to the cart. Once again the usage of artificial intelligence can come in handy here.

Order Checkout Process

The normal checkout process just includes the number of food items users have ordered and the final payable price. When you offer the final checkout process, you should allow users to add discount offers on their final payable amount, and choose the delivery location along with an amount breakdown that describes the payable tax amount, product amount, discounted amount, and delivery charge as well. The more transparency you can offer the better.

Payment Options

Along with offering them a wide range of food products and restaurants, there is one other thing that users want options to choose from payment method. A food delivery mobile app will have a huge target audience group. It will include high school students to elderly people and everyone in between. So, offering them a wide range of payment options including COD, debit/ credit card, online payments and other modes of payments will enhance the chance of covering a large audience. As it will give them a chance to choose the payment mode they prefer rather than sticking to the one you offer.

Push Notifications

Every other food delivery mobile application including UberEats shares the order status through push notifications. But apart from that, what else push notifications can do? It can be your way of communication to connect with the audience. You can form marketing strategies that you can convey through push notifications. Push notifications can be an amazing way of communication and marketing while offering them a chance to keep themselves informed about their order updates.


Is that all? do these are the only factors that can help you build the exact same mobile application as Uber eats? Well, of course not!!! There are various other factors such as UI of the mobile app, food delivery model, tech stack of the mobile app, proficiency of the app developers and various others.

The mutual efforts from you and the app development company can decide whether your app can beat Uber eats or not. Wanna check if your project requirements meetups the bars or not. Let's discuss them with the experts.
