The guys over at Foodhub.co.uk sent me £20 to have a wee treat and check out their app.
I have posted my journey from opening the app to the food arriving on my Instagram, if you missed follow me for any future stories etc I might do.
What I learned was that when you place an order on the other food delivery apps, they actually take a % of commission. This means the restaurant looses out on its profit, which I never knew this till I looked into FoodHub.
Foodhub is an online food website and app launched in 2017. There are more than 12,000 takeaways currently featured online at foodhub.co.uk and through the apps available for iOS and Android.
Foodhub doesn’t take commission, which means it’s a better deal for the takeaway and for us the consumers, as Foodhub is on average 15% cheaper than the rest! For example, JustEat is the UK’s biggest competitor and their takeaway app takes a commission from the restaurant as well as charges customers an admin fee! In 2018 “Just Eat enraged its customers by introducing a 50p cost on all orders”, according to the report on YummyTasteFood. This usually means takeaways are priced higher for hungry customers on JustEat than FoodHub.
This is a really good way to work!
I have an iPhone so I downloaded the app via the appstore, but you can get the app from the Android store to or just visit their website.
As you can see from the above images, its layout and looks is similar to the other delivery apps so its mega easy to navigate and find what your looking for since you have probably been used to the other apps.
The Restaurant Choice
Just like the other apps you may have used, this is exactly the same it depends on your area and the times they open for delivery. It also depends if your local restaurants have joined the FoodHub experience.
FoodHub currently have more than 12,000 takeaways on its app so I am sure you will find something to tickle your tastebuds.
For me I wanted to try a restaurant thats been on my hit list for a while, and I choose Steak & Cherry.
As you can see the layout is very similar to the other apps, and I just hit “ADD” whenever I spotted something that tickled my tastebuds.
As you can see from the above screen, I paid and this is what I was shown. The top right corner was a 30min countdown, I took that as 30mins till its cooked but I was very wrong. 30mins later my door went and the food was handed to me, WOW very fast and great service.
The Food :
I ordered from a local Glasgow based restaurant Steak and Cherry, which is a restaurant that was on my ever growing “to visit” list.
I ordered one chicken burger and one beef burger.
The service, and food was really good and we enjoyed it very much.
We got a side of Sweet Potato Fries, and Curly Fries….but something I failed to spot was the burgers actually came with normal fries so we had LOADS of fries 🙂
I will be doing a full review of Steak and Cherry soon, so keep a look out for that.
Service Overall :
Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the service from FoodHub, and the food from the restaurant.
From downloading the app to placing the order, it was a very smooth process. There was zero learning curve, as it had a similar layout to the other food apps so in a few seconds I knew what to do.
As I said at the start of this post, Foodhub doesn’t take commission, which means it’s a better deal for the takeaway and for us the consumers which I think is a great platform…as its a win win situation.
I have zero hesitation to recommending this app, its easy to use and a win win situation for restaurants and you.
Please check them out either via the website or your app store.
