It also provides an accurate minimum delivery amount estimate that is in sync with the location of the customer. Also, the app presents a different menu to the patrons depending on the location and the time of the day.

They can build their own combos and have a three-course meal without burning their wallets. They can even repeat their last order, with a single click.
