Twenty years ago, you had two choices for lunch on a weekday. You could choose the economical “pack a lunch” option. Or, you could go out for lunch. That was the “treat yourself” option. On average, American workers chose the first option, 3.8 days a week. Today, your lunchtime options have increased exponentially. Small economy cars are buzzing up and down the streets, carrying lunch to offices, schools, and parks. Lunch brought to you is the newest trend in lunch! With so many choices, how do you select the best? That’s why you read Gildshire, my friend. Today, we look at the best food delivery apps and choose the best one for you.
I hope you haven’t had lunch, because we’re about to make you hungry. All of these are available on iOS or Android, and all can feed you in a way to help your healthy lifestyle…if you’re into that kind of thing.
A great thing about a food delivery app is the cashless transaction. These apps are compatible with major credit cards, Apple Pay, and Paypal. Foodler accepts two more payment portals, namely Foodler Bucks and Bitcoin. Foodler’s built-in rewards program earns free meals, and aren’t “free” and “food” the best two words ever? This app is free to use, but some restaurants will add a delivery fee.
Honestly, it isn’t fair to call this one a food delivery app, because of the number of things it can provide. Do you need diapers, paper towels, and an Idaho Spud candy bar? Or maybe some kale? goPuff can take care of you. It’s a convenience store in the palm of your hand. goPuff charges $2.00 per delivery, but an order totaling $49 triggers free delivery.
Another delivery app that offers more than a menu. Lunch, groceries, a bottle of wine, of course. But you can get your laundry done with this app! Just tell it when to pick up your dirty shirts, and what special instructions you have for the wash and dry. Rather than charging a fee, the company makes its money by taking a small percentage of your pre-tip subtotal.
Another service that offers more than food, Postmates can deliver groceries of all kinds and liquor to boot! This delivery app does not partner with specific restaurants, so your delivery is limited only by your craving. Postmates adds a small fee to each order unless you join their “Plus Unlimited” club for $10 a month. Free delivery comes with club membership.
You’ve ridden with Uber, rated Uber drivers and been rated as a passenger by Uber. Why wouldn’t you trust Uber to bring a carne asada taco to your house? Introducing Uber eats. It is a standalone app but shares some of the personality with the ride-share folks, including cashless transactions and an ETA for your taco. Ubereats charges a flat $5 per order.
The last of our food delivery apps may be our favorite of all, and its ease of use makes it so. The app provides menus from thousands of restaurants and offers exclusive in-app discounts. There is no delivery fee, and Seamless allows you to place your order with a few clicks. The only thing that keeps the whole set-up from being perfect is the order minimums, established by the restaurants, and not Seamless.
Those are the best food delivery apps on the job, making you hungry today. See if the accountant in the next kiosk wants to split a feast for lunch.
