There are so many options for ordering food today. Many brands have specific delivery services, if they don’t DoorDash will likely deliver. There’s also always the option of simply going in person. It’s hard with all these options to justify downloading and using an app for one specific brand. Let’s explore some of the best loyalty apps for consumers below.
For example, why download the McDonald’s app over simply driving and ordering there whenever convenient? The answer the top apps have implemented is simple, rewards. The McDonalds app, after signing up to the app, offers a free large fry per order. This keeps consumers on the app and more importantly eating at McDonalds.
Looking at the other top rated apps this trend is repeated. The highest rated restaurant on the App Store is Chick-fil-a, and it’s not hard to understand why. For those eating at Chick-fil-a consistently their points system can save countless dollars. This, alongside an effective UI, makes the app very popular.
In the Google Play store Dominos tops the charts, with exclusive digital coupons and deals. Other stores like Chipotle and Wingstop also repeat this trend. Although there is one other factor worth mentioning and that’s practicality. It should be easy and reliable to order through the app.
Reliability is something an app like Chick-fil-a will do a lot better than Little Caesars. At that point it’s much more out of the app’s hand, but it’s still worth mentioning. When looking at which restaurant app to use, look for rewards and consistency. If the apps lack this, it may just be better to order in person.
