Why Restaurateurs Choose UpMenu

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Creating a restaurant application is easy if you’re using an app builder. App builders like UpMenu allow you to design your app how you see fit. In addition, UpMenu has easy-to-use drag-and-drop capabilities and doesn’t require users to know how to code.

The average price to build an app for a restaurant can go well into the hundreds. However, with the UpMenu food delivery app builder, you only pay $49 per month. Why is our price so low? Our restaurant delivery app builder gives you access to our ready-made app templates, instead of the services of a software developer who specializes in restaurant app development with coding.

A professional mobile app developer can cost well over $100 an hour, which can quickly eat into your budget. With an app builder like UpMenu, you simply pay $49 a month, instead of thousands for restaurant mobile app development.

Building restaurant applications with a mobile developer or software house is a better option if you own a restaurant franchise made up of several locations. Examples include: Tacobell, Chick-fil-a, KFC, etc.

Why is this the case? Let’s calculate the development cost. App Development Cost = Total Number Of Hours x Hourly Rate. If building the app requires 200 hours, and the developer charges $100 an hour, you’re looking at around $20000 (200 hours x $100).

It depends on who builds the app. If you choose to build it yourself using a restaurant app maker like UpMenu, then it can take roughly 1 hour to design and publish. If you’re planning to make a restaurant app with an app development company, it can take from a few weeks to a few months.
