The system is an online platform with a selection of restaurants where
customers can order and get delivered food from any restaurant in any
city in Ukraine.
Users can select a city, pick restaurants, review dishes, and place food delivery orders. Restaurants can list their menus by creating customized pages.

The idea behind the platform was to collect as many food delivery services as possible in one place to provide systematic online ordering. The system had to be understandable and easy to use for end users.
We have allocated a team of tech specialists to create a fully-functional system.
