Creating a peer-to-peer food vending, ordering and delivery ecosystem in colleges
Motivated by the current state of technological advancement, this project seeks to modernize the traditional methods of food vending, ordering and delivery by creating a unique yet satisfying mobile experience for users. It is with no doubt that some tools and technology exist that may be employed. However, in the case of student run food business, the default platform used to receive orders is via an embedded google form in an email broadcasted to the entire Ashesi University College community. In several cases, most student food businesses set up at a location on campus and advertise as much as possible to gain a larger reach of customers and traffic to their store/location. Although these methods solve the problem of getting students to patronize their products, there are several efficient ways such methods could be improved to gain a larger reach of customers. This project seeks to develop a peer to peer mobile application that grants users the choice and convenience of ordering, vending and delivering food items using their smart phones.
