-by Uwana Sunday

Appieatz, a promising food tech startup, with major operations in Lagos-Nigeria, is deepening its technology investments in the food space to sell more to a wider market with their on-demand food and groceries delivery service.

The firm which started operations in 2019 has been building technologies for the food and logistics industry to help improve food ordering and delivery.

Appieatz launched its food ordering platform in 2018, after reviews updated the app in 2020 with an easier and better user interface as well as the mobile with new custom features. Some of the features include; in-app wallet, where users can top up to buy on the app, custom orders button; which allows users order exactly what they want to eat. Popular local restaurants brands and kitchens have signed up on the services on account of its efficiency, friendly rates and fast deliveries.

The firm recently launched a new app for restaurants and companies to send and receive packages with accredited dispatch anywhere anytime. The app was developed following numerous feedbacks from restaurants on unfulfilled orders due largely to logistics bottlenecks.

The app, which also allows users to order for a dispatch bicycle, bike, vehicle, van or truck by linking users to the nearest dispatch within their location, is the first of its kind in the country. Appieatz has also announced plans to include groceries and laundry to their services offering to users.

Chief Innovation Officer of the Tech firm, Chideera Emerenini, said that his team is poised to help reduce all possible hurdle holding on the way to delivering maximum value in the restaurant value chain.

In his words: “The recent economic lockdon has been very hard on the food industry, as most food chain businesses deal mainly in perishable items. Appieatz is a smart leveraging platform for returning businesses. It helps navigate all the ‘new normal’ that the covid-19 experiences have imposed on outdoor dining and social gathering experiences which essentially are the mainstay of food business.”

Emerenini said his team will continue to innovate and iterate the app to accommodate more solutions that would help on-boarded brands maximize their experience with their customers while noting that the app compliments the hard work already invested in the project.

Appieatz was recently ranked in London among most promising apps to lookout for in 2021.
