Or if you are a foodie and just someone who wants to discover new tastes, you can browse Appetivo by geolocation or cuisine and find incredible meals from home chefs, food trucks or restaurants near you.
Whatever the case, Appetivo allows you to order same day fresh healthy food, baked goods like cake and bread and even large party platters days in advance for pickup or delivery. It's that easy.
Not at all! We are all qualified home chefs to a certain degree. We are all able to cook at least 1 or 2 incredible meals like no one else. Think about how many times you have been to a house party or dinner event where you have had some of the most amazing food not available in restaurants.
Or you brought your favorite dish and everyone was asking for the recipe.
Perhaps you are someone who has an incredible passion for food with a list of meals you can offer, or perhaps you are sitting on that one insanely good burger recipe even McDonald's would pay for. Appetivo is your chance to show off your kitchen skills and make money from home regardless of how many meals you can provide.
What makes Appetivo so easy is that you can start with just one meal and slowly increase your menu over time if you want. For restaurants, we like to recommend you start with the five best selling items on your menu. Perhaps your chef wants to try something special for one day only. Just upload it to Appetivo, write a short description and allow people to enjoy food they can't order from your existing menu.
Appetivo is completely free. And by that we mean 100% free with no hidden costs. We will never upcharge you later down the line. Our mission with Appetivo has always been to make it super affordable and easy for home chefs, food trucks, and restaurants to join our ever-expanding food network of chefs around the world.
You have complete control over the pricing of your menu items. You will earn the exact amount entered with no additional deductions. Appetivo only charges the customer an additional 15% commission for services provided. Once an order is placed all the money is instantly sent to your Paypal account, even before you started. You can then transfer out to your bank whenever you want or draw cash with your PayPal debit card.
As the food provider, PayPal requires that kitchens first collect the full total from customers, which includes our 15% commission. In the off chance that you may have a customer who requires a refund you will be able to process refunds online before we get back our commission earned. Once a week Appetivo will then auto deduct our 15% commission from your PayPal account on successful transactions only. This will not affect your original menu pricing so as the kitchen owner you still earn the full cost of each item including tax.
Every time a customer places an order you will receive an SMS notification plus email to make sure you don't miss anything. You also have the option of updating your Appetivo phone number anytime if you need to leave someone else in charge, while you are away.
All your food orders are controlled within the Appetivo dashboard. Every time a new order comes in the customer will receive an email notification to let them know you are working on their order. It also allows you with the flexibility to let your customers know how long they will wait for their food to be ready.
And if you ever feel like taking a break or are being overrun by orders, simply change your kitchen visibility in the dashboard to make sure new customers are not able to place orders until you are ready again. Or perhaps you run out of cheese to make that incredible Burger everybody has been yearning for, no problem just visit your visibility page and disable the menu items you are not able to sell for now. It's that easy.
We get this question a lot for obvious reasons. First of all, it's your responsibility to make sure that you prepare the best quality food for your customers. Appetivo is a food transaction platform that allows you to sell YOUR food online. We are not responsible for effective communication to YOUR customers, or on-time delivery. Our web-app provides all the tools necessary for you to provide good service and manage your transaction flow.
To ensure the best possible food experience we highly recommend you communicate with your customers via email or phone and make sure you don't miss orders or make them wait longer than expected. Keep an eye on your phone and if you leave anyone else in charge make sure they pay attention to message notifications while you're out.
Finally, the review system on Appetivo carries a lot of weight in terms of how your customers will buy from you. Make sure you follow up and ask them to leave you good reviews which will increase your chances for more sales in the future. If you constantly provide excellent service your reviews will enable you to sell more and more food as your kitchen gains popularity on Appetivo, but if you provide poor service or food your reviews my work against you and slow down sales.
We also reserve the right to take down kitchens that receive too many complaints from customers. You are your own boss and this is a place of business, so treat your customers the way you would like them to treat you, and your business will flourish on Appetivo.
It's important to manage your pace of delivery. If things go well you may receive more than you can handle but make sure you manage your kitchen properly. Do not accept orders you're not able to deliver on, on time. Good customer service is more important and will solidify your status as a top seller on Appetivo.
By default, Appetivo offers built-in Facebook sharing functionality. Every time you add a new food item to your menu you will be able to share it on your Facebook wall. So the more items you have on your menu the higher your Appetivo visibility. Click the Facebook logo next to the food thumbnail in your menu to instantly share on Social Media.
In addition, you can include hashtags in front of certain keywords which will increase your visibility in Facebook search. e.g When sharing: "This is the best organic beef burger you ever had in Mexico. Home-baked bread and butter lettuce, wraps this 500g kobe beef patty into an unimaginable explosion of flavors that you have never tasted before" - Use the # symbol to add keywords such as, #burger, #home-baked, #flavors, #kobebeef , #freshbread and so on. Limit to 5 hashtags per share.
Finally, you should ask your customers and friends to help you share your food on their own Facebook pages. We made it very easy for Appetivo users to quickly click and share to Facebook which will greatly increase your visibility. They don't even need an account, just browse and share.
Once your food is shared, anyone on Facebook can click through to your menu items and order in just a few clicks. And of course, the better the picture quality of your food the higher your chances become of getting more clicks to your food on Appetivo. Make it look good! No logos. Just food. Have fun sharing your food on Social Media.
