From Restaurants to Raw Material Suppliers - Even Hedge Funds Benefit from the Mealme API
Online food delivery has undoubtedly caught user imagination across the globe. According to available market estimates, the market is poised to witness a nearly 14% growth rate between 2022 and 2027. The Meal Delivery segment alone is expected to serve more than 2.5 billion users by 2027.
In 2022, user penetration in the Online Food Delivery segment was nearly 33%. Market researchers believe that the average revenue per user by segment in 2027 will be more than US$170.
Streamlining and bringing efficiency to such a high-growth market would require cutting-edge technological innovation. Unless the operations are smooth and user convenience parameters offer best-in-class results, upscaling such a high-paced market won't be possible.
The MealMe API leverages technology in the most intuitive and user-friendly way possible to turn the scattered and diverse food delivery industry into a coherent one.
Mealme API: Comprehensive Solution for the Food Industry
MealMe API addresses a host of customer end-points, including Store Search, Restaurant Menu, Grocery Inventory, Food Delivery - including Restaurant and Grocery, and Food Ordering.
In service coverage, the Mealme API covers all three application paradigms: Search, Send, and Order.
In Search, a single Mealme API offers access to inventory data in the millions, listing a broad range of provider categories, such as large retailers, restaurants, grocery stores, convenience stores, liquor stores, electronic stores, home goods, and more.
The product units that Mealme API offers access to run into billions. Similarly, with the help of more than a million providers, it is possible to send orders to 1 million plus stores. In delivery, the Mealme API service utilizes the services of more than 30,000 third-party providers, specialists in delivery and courier services, or stores with their own drivers.
Mealme Menu and Product Price API
The restaurant menu API of MealMe addresses both the ends of the Restaurant Menu and the Menu Item. Additionally, there is the Grocery Inventory API that caters to both the Store Inventory side and that of the individual Grocery Products.
Menu Items in JSON: One of the premier uniquenesses of the MealMe Menu and Product Price API is menus in JSON format. Clients and restaurants who integrate and leverage the MealMe Menu API get to offer the menu in a more user-friendly and intuitive way, rather than applications that only provide PDF photos of the menu.
Real-Time Pricing: The MealMe menu and product price API implies that every menu item and grocery product returned comes with real-time ordering availability, prices, and item customizations and modifiers.
Real-time pricing has multiple benefits.
At an industry level, MealMe's clients can leverage the API to know the price their competitors are charging for products or the price at which products are sold in the nearby facilities. At a broader level, even hedge funds use the services of MealMe API to know real-time prices for the sake of optimal trading.
Convenience for Distributors: The MealMe menu API helps the large providers too. Distributors can leverage their services to decide on their supply strategy effectively. Since they know the menu, and that too, in real-time, they can efficiently plan what ingredients to supply.
Altogether the MealMe Product Price and Menu API is a 360-degree offering that can be used by restaurants, suppliers and distributors, and even hedge funds to improve their bottom line.
