New York City-based food delivery service IHOP is starting to make an impact on the fast food industry with a new app that promises to make the food delivery experience as simple and convenient as possible.
The app will make it as easy as ordering food to get it to your doorstep, and will work with local drivers.
The service is currently in beta and is available on the Apple App Store.
IHop CEO and co-founder Brian Lutz announced the new service on his blog.
Lutz says the new app will have an initial launch later this year, but that it will be rolled out to all of its 1.8 million customers within the next few weeks.
The new app allows customers to pay using their credit card or PayPal account, and then use IHops technology to pick up the food and deliver it to their doorstep.
Lutsen explains that the app has been designed with an emphasis on efficiency.
He says customers can expect to save up to $100 on their delivery, with an average delivery time of less than 30 minutes.
Customers can also customize the delivery to their specific needs.
Lutzes main challenge was finding the right app for a fast food chain that already has a reputation for efficiency.
“We have always had a lot of innovation, and we have had a good relationship with fast food companies, but when it comes to delivery, I was always hesitant because it was something that I felt was really hard,” Lutz said.
“I knew we could do better, but I wasn’t sure if we were going to be able to.
So I just started to work with people who are really good at this, and it worked out.”
The app lets customers order food and get it delivered to their door in under three minutes, according to Lutsens blog post.
Customers will also be able pick up and drop off food within a five-minute window.
LUTZS LAUNCHERS SAY THE APP IS A PROMISE That’s what makes IHOPS’ delivery app so compelling: It’s a promise that will keep customers coming back to IHOSTs restaurants for more food, and hopefully a new one.
Luto, who is from Houston, Texas, says IHUTS has been one of the first chains in the country to implement the app, which is free.
“It’s definitely a great product that we can use in our restaurants,” he said.
IhOP says that its service will be similar to what customers expect when they use a smartphone app to order food.
“Our customers love having a convenient option to get food delivered to them,” Luthes blog post said.
Luttens startup is already available in more than a dozen cities.
The company is working with IHOCK and local drivers to get the app ready for its launch.
“My hope is that our customers are able to take advantage of the new delivery experience that we have built for them,” he wrote.
Luti says that the IHOOK app is a new way for IHOLs customers to order and pick up food.
I HOP has already been using IHOT technology to deliver food to its restaurants.
The mobile app will be available on Android and Apple mobile platforms and is expected to be rolled into the I HOLS app this year.
The IHOO app, meanwhile, will be rolling out this fall.
The restaurant chains app has already received widespread attention, with many media outlets including The New York Times and Fast Company both covering the app.
Luthis startup, meanwhile has been praised for its simplicity.
I’m excited about our ability to bring our delivery service to the masses with our IHOOD app.
I will be able, with my team, to deliver fast food to the most vulnerable areas of the world.
– David Hirsch, CEO of IHOMI LUTTS SAYS THE APP WILL GET THE LENGTH OF FOOD AND MONEY RIGHT IHOHOP says the service will have a similar design to the one it already has in place.
“If you want a fast, simple delivery option, we are going to deliver to your door,” Lutsis blog post says.
“You will have the ability to pick your delivery option and the delivery time will be as quick as 30 minutes.”
The service will also have a cash back option, which Luts said will help IHOFos customers make ends meet.
The cash back will be based on the number of orders the customer orders per month, which will be capped at $25 per order, he wrote on his website.
“The more orders you get, the better you will earn,” Lutts post says, adding that customers will be given the option to choose between two types of cash back.
“One type of cashback is a discount when you use a credit card, the other type of credit card is a cashback on all food delivered,” Luths blog post states.
