  1. This is crazy to me. In so many ways. Do people cook anymore?

  2. This is basically listing same platform apps that offer same services to the restaurants.. should have diversify the selections, you forgot platforms like, MealPal, Ritual, and HalfPosh..

    You should look them up and see how they all offer different services to help boost the restaurant operations. Maybe on your next article it will have more value in it.

    Cheers.
