While it is common to call in food orders or place them online before picking them up, the Square Pickup app lets you do all that directly on your phone without any personal communication.

Square Pickup lets you order food and other items from local merchants who are associated with Square -- as of right now, this service is only compatible with a handful of restaurants in San Francisco. This app is ideal for busy working people who are on a tight lunch break schedule, and can’t sacrifice their time waiting in line. Pickup also allows you to pay within the app, so you literally do not have to speak or interact with anyone.

The app displays all the participating restaurants, along with their menus and estimated wait time. This incentive can help people discover small start-up restaurants, while also promoting the city’s best places to eat.
