Going forward
The Pandemic has changed the way people dine out. Having the option to place an order for pickup and delivery is expected by the users.
Most restaurants can't afford to have a mobile application. More and more people access the internet through their smartphones. Therefore, responsive design is crucial.
Next steps
Conduct usability studies to get feedback on the high-fidelity prototype to determine whether the design address the users' pain points.
Design the mobile version of the restaurant website and iterate on the design based on feedback received.
Thank you!
