We have punched out common problems faced by neophytes to overcome the fear of competition and create a path towards the most loved application on Google or Appl play store.

1. Finding the target audience

For a successful food delivery app, it is very crucial to select the right target audience. On-demand food delivery is not just delivering delicious food. People have different taste in food, some like to have delicious pizza while others may prefer a healthy diet food or salad it all depends on their taste and preference. In the food delivery industry, it is beneficiary to know your target audience first and then their demands and expectations. There are many other things you can deliver beyond food like delivering grocery (oil, cereal products), ready-made meal, serving curated meal according to customer's diet incorporating recipe.

Postmates operating in the biggest cities of the US and Europe has a wide range in the selection of food items to cater to at your door-steps. targets the same target audience as UberEats, millennial. However, Postmates has widened its service by delivering beyond food. They deliver many other items at your door-step other than food items. Say, for example, you went to a grocery store and forgot to bring any small product like oil, Postmates delivers you even the smallest item and that makes them more than just a food delivery app.

2. Enlarge network by smoothly coordinating with restaurants, grocery stores, and local farmers

New food delivery start-up has to make sure they enhance the visibility of their food platform to be seen among their competitors. In order to do so, they have to make sure to enlarge their network with more and more restaurants, grocery stores, and local farmers. It will push towards the higher transaction rate among their competitors.

Every food delivery app has different demands and strategy and they wish to partner with restaurants accordingly.

Eat24 and GrubHub are the companies who build a partnership with local food establishment by cutting down the delivery cost and then taking a commission from the sales. They start working with the partner restaurants only after the contract is finalized and signed to fruitfully enjoy the mutual agreement and broaden the publicity.

Farmdrop, a London based grocery store partners with local fishermen and farmers and delivers food directly from their farm. Such companies solve the barrier of delivering the top-notch quality organic food and ingredients.

Among all, Postmates chooses a risky partnership strategy to widen the client base. Postmates used to deliver food from the number of restaurants before signing any agreement, then gathered feedback and if it is proved lucrative than only, they offer restaurants merchant to join.

3. Decide the approach of hiring driver, for optimizing delivery

There are two primary ways adopted by food delivery tech apps to hire drivers:

1. Hire their own fleet of courier
2. Contract with freelancers

4. Choosing the appropriate scope of features for your apps
