MenuPoint is a drink and food ordering app. Unlike any other food ordering app, MenuPoint allows ordering drinks while sitting in a bar or a restaurant. MenuPoint is a 3-piece system including an app for diners, an app for bartenders, and an app for bar managers.

Project idea

Though there are hundreds of food ordering and delivery apps, MenuPoint stands out of the crowd. The client came with the idea to build an on-demand food ordering app to use in restaurants and bars. MenuPoint should help waiters get orders and process them while bringing down holdover time.
Users should be able to send orders straight to the bar without waiters. And barkeepers should be notified when new orders come in. MenuPoint should streamline the work of bars and restaurants when they’re jammed full.
