This is a part of a challenge I’m doing, 28 concepts in 28 days. If you want to read about it head over to the Introduction.

Do you ever open up Uber Eats, or Door dash and find yourself just scrolling? After scrolling forever, you end up just ordering the same Pad Thai from down the street for the 100th time? I do.

When looking at new places I’m often overwhelmed by the options. “How much food is good for two people?”, “What are the most popular items?”, “This seems expensive to experiment with”.

Today's concept is Combo, rather than being greeted with a confusing menu, you can choose complete meals from restaurants you want to try.

👨‍👩‍👦 Group Meals

When starting, you can select how many people you need to order food for, and the system will calculate a list of recommendations. So don’t fear, you won't be left hungry, or with leftovers. (Unless you want extra!)

If you’d like to modify, you can always add or remove items!

🌱 Dietary Restrictions

Plant-Based? Keto? Gluten-Free? Combo can recommend meals for you and your group based on dietary restrictions.

Even if one person has a dietary restriction, the recommendations will be setup in order to provide the best meal for the group.

💰 Supports Local

Companies like Uber and DoorDash take a large % of the order, Combos goal is to provide access to local restaurants and not gouge small businesses. This does mean things like McDonalds wont be on the app.
