The aim and motive to launch the application are that today’s internet meal delivery platforms present significant challenges for restaurants, including excessive commission fees, biased search results, manipulated ratings and reviews, and one-sided policies. Customers, on the other hand, are feeling the heat of costly food, tardy deliveries, ambiguous sanitary standards, poor food quality, and frustrations brought on by a lack of customer assistance.

With the help of the Indian Hotel & Restaurant Association, Mumbai (AHAR), as well as other top associations in the sector, the WAAYU App was created by a team of dedicated serial tech entrepreneurs and a prominent technology business in Pune. Food delivery applications will undergo a transformation thanks to WAAYU, which will increase efficiency across the board. It contains:

Restaurants will no longer be subject to commission fees, allowing them to set more affordable prices for their menu items and pass the savings on to customers. Customers may now enjoy their favorite dishes without having to pay the exorbitant costs frequently connected with conventional delivery services.

Increased Flexibility and Control: The WAAYU App gives restaurants greater control and flexibility over their online ordering operations. Restaurants can use Paytm Google Pay, UPI, Net Banking, Debit Cards, Credit Cards, or COD to receive money instantaneously and directly into their own bank accounts.

Smooth Order workflow: WAAYU App automates the order workflow with end-to-end technology integration from Customer to Kitchen, making it simple for restaurants to run and allowing them to concentrate only on food preparation even during peak times.

Customers have access to affordable dining options, and doorstep delivery offers the best deals on their favorite foods. Mumbai’s top 1000+ eateries have already signed up for WAAYU App. Through a specialized customer care system, patrons can communicate directly with the eateries.

Building Customer Loyalty: This results in a win-win situation where restaurants can build a loyal customer base that will result in repeat business and good word-of-mouth, and customers have access to a variety of dining options.

Ensure the Industry’s Sustainability: The WAAYU App, the only zero-commission platform in the industry, strives to develop a sustainable business strategy for the online food sector. By putting restaurants’ needs first, WAAYU App gives them the freedom to work commission-free and more control over their online presence. Customers gain from more affordable meal options, a wider variety of dining selections, and honest and open food delivery services.

Suniel Shetty said, “This association with Anirudha and Mandar is almost like a homecoming for me because I’ve been in the restaurant business even before I became an actor. My father’s legacy of managing Udipi restaurants with the highest standards in service, prices, and cleanliness lives on in the digital era with an app like WAAYU. The advent of user-friendly apps and tech-enabled driver networks, coupled with changing hospitality and consumer expectations, has unlocked ready-to-eat food delivery as a major category. Food delivery has become a lifeline for the restaurant industry that is fast growing post pandemic. Moving forward, it is poised to remain a permanent fixture in the dining landscape and it’s with immense pride that I accept being the Brand Ambassador of an app that charges zero commissions in a highly competitive landscape.”

In an interview with Money Control, he also mentioned how will it compete with the other food-delivering apps, “Swiggy and Zomato are the kings of aggregator scenarios, and we are just beginners. It’s been baby steps, but we have been successful so far because we are partners with most of the hotel associations. When you partner with the supplier, it might probably be a more seamless offer and valuable to the customer with fresh and faster food and at great prices.”
