WHAT IS BITEME ?

BiteMe will help you find restaurants that have the healthy food that you want. It will connect customers with healthy food at NO COST to restaurants. It will also have social media features such as sharing (via text and email) menus and your orders, rating restaurants, and saving orders. It will be free to download. The app will come loaded with information about restaurants throughout the USA. 

With its social media features you can now text or email your friends the restaurant's menu so you can all decide where you want to eat. If you are ordering take out or delivery you can share your order with your friends so they can approve it before you submit the order. Life will be a lot easier for you and your friends and family when ordering food.

You care about what you eat and you also want to eat out. If you are like me, you have wasted a lot of time researching the restaurants in your area and analyzing menus.....just so you can eat food that won't make you sick or just unhappy.

Enter BiteMe, your restaurant concierge.

BiteMe will help you keep eating the right food. It will now be easier to avoid foods that you are allergic to and/or stick to your chosen diet by finding the restaurants in your area that have the food that you prefer---- whether its organic, dairy-free, grass-fed, vegan, etc. The list of preferences AND FOODS TO AVOID can be modified depending on responses from our Kickstarter backers! 

1.  IT'S FAST

Just enter your profile, checking off the food that fit your preferences. Choose as little or as many categories as you like. If you click Organic and also Vegan, for example, you will only see restaurants with food that is both organic and vegan. With one click you save yourself time googling restaurants or using restaurant apps that categorize them ONLY by their cuisine, i.e. American, Korean, Fine Dining, etc.

2. IT'S EASY

Once you have entered your profile. Click the search button and a list of restaurants will appear. These are restaurants in your area with food that fits your profile. It's that simple. No more googling, searching restaurant websites, or even calling restaurants. You will know if they are open, where they are located, and how expensive they are. All with one click.

3. IT SAVES YOU TIME

Did I mention that this app will save you a lot of time? I have literally spent at least an hour trying to find a restaurant that everyone in my family will enjoy but that also serves healthy food. Once you have a list of the restaurants in your area that have food that you want, click on the restaurant and its menu will appear. The menu you will see will only have the food that you specified on your profile. So if they have burgers but you are vegan, for example, you won't see burgers. Now you won't waste time looking at food items that you don't want. Simply choose the food you want and submit your order. Your order will be sent to the restaurant and the restaurant will take it from there. They will notify you by text or phone call, they will process your payment, and they will get the food out to you (if you chose delivery), or have it ready for pick up (if you choose take-out). If you are dining-in the restaurant can let you know the wait time for seating and confirm availability of your order.

With its social media features you can now text or email your friends the restaurant's menu so you can all decide where you want to eat. If you are ordering take out or delivery you can share your order with your friends so they can approve it before you submit the order. Life will be a lot easier for you and your friends and family when ordering food.

REWARDS

Donating to Kickstarter is a selfless act, and I appreciate that.

COSTS

It turns out making an app can be expensive....I had no idea! Until I started having conversations with some leading app developers. 

The costs will include what it'll take to design, code, test, and release the app, AND what it'll take to promote and keep it running beyond the kickstarter period. For example: 

  • Establishing a business & associated fees
  • Legal stuff
  • Fixing the designs, which I hand drew like a baby
  • Coding the app
  • Writing all of the documentation 
  • Running servers
  • Marketing
  • Kickstarter Fees & Taxes 

Lots of apps fail because they run out of money and have none left for updates which is something I want to avoid. If you have ever opened an app and seen that it has no or very little content---that is what happened.

Given the current budget, we're anticipating the beta release of the app for both IOS and Android will be available in August 2019.

WHO AM I?

Hi! I am Toni and I am a wife and mom of two. You probably already know that according to www.foodallergy.org up to 15 million Americans have food allergies, including 5.9 million children under the age of 18. That's a lot of people, and my son is one of them. His body is sensitive to corn, soy, and wheat. That is why eating the right food has become so important to myself and my family. It's also why I want to have a new app made, called BiteMe, that will help you find restaurants with healthy food. 

Risks and challenges

There is a Risks and Challenges section, even though this is a pretty low-risk operation, so let me think of some.

Creating a database of restaurants and also categorizing their menu based on dietary requirements will be a huge undertaking. It is achievable with the right team but there is a risk that the ball could get dropped. It will take (besides money) time, and dedication--- which I am willing to give 100%.

Once the database is created and the app is built, the next challenge will be to keep the content updated.
