The 'E Le Me' Food Delivery App Serves Meals from Small Eateries in China

 - Aug 26, 2015
If you're ever hungry in China, you should check out the mobile food delivery app 'E Le Me.' It is one of many dozens of emerging food delivery apps in the country. In busy and highly populated Chinese cities, there are small mom-and-pop restaurants along all streets -- these are the main focus for food delivery apps like E Le Me.

E Le Me has its own fleet of delivery people who take online orders, go to a restaurant, purchase food and then delivers it to your door on a scooter-bike.

You may ask: "Well, hasn't there always been food delivery?" Yes, but apps like E Le Me have become extremely popular because of their different targets. They cooperate with restaurants that are not large enough or profitable enough to recruit their own delivery guys. So for these restaurants, they essentially share the use of E Le Me's delivery fleet.

When searching for food, app users can sort by average delivery time, distance from location or minimum order amount. If the restaurant is currently running at high capacity, this will also be reflected on the app.
