Why Choose Custom Delivery Apps For Your Food or Grocery Business

custom delivery apps

Thanks to the recent talks about Shark Tank India – a Business Reality Show on Sony TV & SonyLiv OTT Platform – people have responded with memes, dinner table conversations, and pitch after gauging their own entrepreneurial ideas. Having a solid business right from the start is quite tough, isn’t it?

But, what if you have the right tools to begin with. At least in the delivery startup business, you can start with the best foot forward. And, custom delivery apps could be the key.

Building a customer base takes mammoth amounts of time & resources. Meanwhile, some ideas to scale ahead could make you anxious or less confident. However, you can avoid too costly beginnings by choosing a reliable and affordable solution. 

Launching your food/grocery delivery startup business would require you to have your own set of delivery guys or partnership with logistic partners in the country. But before that, a solid & customer-friendly mobile app is what you need. 

Today’s Indian IT sector fills you with various choices to pick from for making a software solution. Out of those choices, two are extremely popular these days:

  1. App Builders
  2. Custom Apps
What are app builders?

A software development tool provides ‘drag & drop’ features to let you design the app in the way you want it, especially the look-and-feel, functionalities and features. 


  • No coding/programming skills required.
  • Highly affordable solutions.
  • Ready-made architecture.
  • Takes less time.


  • Template design.
  • Structural limitations.
  • Extension difficulties.
  • No coding changes.
  • Partial ownership.
  • Additional charges.
What are custom delivery apps?

A custom delivery app development company builds an app that fits perfectly for your business requirements. Right from your branding to customization of features, you’re in the cruising stage of taking the mobile application to new heights. 


  • Custom branded apps.
  • Readymade features.
  • Custom features.
  • Attractive UI & UX. 
  • Enhancement options.
  • Integration features.
  • Low maintenance.
  • Solid performance.
  • Quick deployment.
  • Affordable costs.


  • Costly than app builder.

As it seems, less costs using app builder fares better against custom apps. However, in the long run, it creates misery for a business that wants to scale ahead with cutting-edge features and enhancements as the former puts a full-stop to that. Not only this, you will get partial ownership from the app builder company. On the other hand, a custom app opens a fountain of opportunities for the lifetime at reasonable costs. Therefore, choosing a custom app over app builder is the best idea at any given point of time.

Custom ordering and delivery apps open a route of opportunities for any food or grocery business. Whether you own a Restaurant or a Chain of Food Outlets, a Kirana Store or a Supermarket, a custom app helps you maximize your return on investment.
