Trend Hunter sat down with Kurt Gooden, the Head of Growth for the Ritual app, to learn about the company’s amazing food-ordering service. The Toronto-based company created the Ritual app, which connects consumers to the best local restaurants and coffee shops directly in their area.
The app works by showing users an extensive list of cafes and eateries in their direct vicinity. Once the user selects a restaurant, they can peruse the menu, customize their order and pay for it using the app. One major highlight of this fast-tracking food app is that it eliminates the wait time in restaurants. Consumers will arrive at their destination at the same time that their order is being placed on the counter.
This mobile platform saves consumers time while instantly connecting them to the best local eateries. This is an extremely valuable tool for those who lead busy lives in urban settings. While the company currently operates solely in Toronto, Ritual hopes to extend its services throughout the United States.
