Will the Uber for Grocery Delivery Business be Successful?

With the market practically crashing on the global front, it won’t be a surprise if you have been worried about which business to enter during this time. Since home delivery for groceries has become quite popular amidst the lockdown. It is only fair that the Uber for Grocery Delivery business is gaining a lot of momentum. 

As more and more people try to find their way back onto solid footing, it is the best time to enter the grocery delivery business. But it is hardly as easy as it may appear in the beginning. The first thing that you must think about is whether you have the right system in place to run the business.

Here’s how you can start:

Step 1

Get on a discovery call with your developers

The first thing that you might want to do when it comes to selecting your app, is to convey to your developers exactly what you want. Mow, please note that most of the times, your developers may not be from your country. Speaking to them over a call may be slightly difficult because your conversation hinges on many technical aspects. 

If there is any difficulty in communication, your final app may not be as you envisaged it to be. It might get warped and end up being absolutely useless to you. In our experience, we have found that after doing a thorough background check of the development company, communicating over emails is the best way to move forward. 

Emails document every conversation and also make sure that whatever you explain to your team and whatever they respond to you is available for ready reference with both parties in an email. The mail is always available for you to check, translate in your language for better understanding or refer it to any other developer available locally so that you can get complete clarity on it. 

Ensure that you always communicate with them over emails and get absolute transparency on the details of the app, the purchase procedure etc.

Step 2

Go through the app in question. 

Now that you have all the details written down in front of you. You are now tasked with the most critical aspect of procuring the app: Demo riding it. A grocery delivery app is a complicated one that involves itself with multiple complex applications that run within it. 

There is a delivery drivers app in both Android and iOS versions. Then there is the Users app in Android and iOS. There’s also the Grocery Store app and web panel apart from the admin panel.  So many smaller parts form the larger app in question. This is why you have to make sure that you have delved into each of these apps to understand what the final app should look like. 

The usability of the app is of utmost importance. Make sure that when your customer downloads this app and logs in to it. The process of ordering their groceries and getting them delivered to their doorstep is absolutely seamless. If not, you will only end up losing out on your precious customer base that you acquired by a whole lot of effort and marketing.

Step 3

Make the right tie ups

Once you have your blog all selected and approved, let the developers get cracking on it. It is time for them to white label the app with your brand name and logo. They will also be able to make the necessary changes including theme changes and additional features. This should typically take about 4 to 5 business days if the app is ready.

While your developers are doing this, you should get busy tying up with the grocery stores in the region that you want to make your services available. If you are already a successful grocery store that is just planning to shift the operations online, then it should not be a problem for you. However, in case you want to ensure that goods from other grocery stores are also available for your customers, this is the time for you to get making associations.

Another tie up that is absolutely necessary, is that of the delivery drivers. Once you have a good network of reliable, hygienic delivery drivers. It will become easy for you to make sure that your customers can get everything delivered quickly and easily. 


There are only three major things that you must do to make sure that your Uber for Grocery Delivery app works seamlessly. The first thing is to finalize the right Grocery delivery application. Once you have done that, the next step is to make sure that you have taken the demo of your on demand delivery app even after the white labeling has gone through with the logo and brand name.  Finally, you have to make sure that you have all the right associations in place for grocery delivery drivers as well as the grocery stores. If everything is done right, you are sure to be a success!
