In today’s world, mobility is extremely important. Traveling by plane is the fastest way to move from one place to another, so it is not a surprise that there are more and more people that use this mean of transportation. If you travel a lot, you are familiar with the problems that come with it.
And one of those problems is food.
There are tons of people at the airport, they all want to eat and there are limited options. Waiting for food or a drink is inevitable. Flights are often canceled or postponed and travelers often have to wait for hours, which is already stressful. If you have to wait in long lines to eat, you can imagine how nerve-racking that can be. So, is there anything that can be done to avoid these terrible experiences?
Of course, there is.
Everyday problems can be solved easily by using technology. Consumers are already used to ordering everything over the internet and through apps, so why shouldn’t we order food at airports in the same way?
In 2014 Cursus Technologies alongside Mark Pearson, Jeff Livney, and Michael Natale created an app called “Grab” and it has been launched since October 2015. This app enables you to order food from any restaurant, in any airport, without waiting in line. And get this, all you have to do is pick it up.
‘The Grab’ includes every major airport and maps the major/most popular restaurants in it. The app is expanding, and the goal is to cover as many restaurants as possible.
The advantage of the app is that you can order food while you do something else, like, waiting in a line at security! When you finish with security, you can go pick up your food. You can even order food ahead of time. Let’s say a customer orders food at their departure airport. When they arrive at their destination airport, their food is ready and waiting for pick-up.
Do any of our readers have restaurants at their local or at a national airport? Have you heard of this app? If not, it may be time to sign up. This could be the differentiator between success and failure. Think of it as the UberEats of airports, minus the delivery. Increased revenue and increased customer satisfaction. What’s not to like about it?
