The idea of Kids Deli came about when our client heard kids complaining about their boring lunches. Desperate for simple and nutritious lunchbox ideas, they started asking Moms for ideas and quickly realized that they had similar problems. Most of the parents they spoke to dreaded the weekly shopping spree for lunches and felt the pressure of preparing the early morning lunchbox. Some were feeling guilty for packing an unhealthy refrigerated prepackaged lunch found at local supermarkets. They also wondered if their children ate what they prepared. So, our client began to compile a variety of healthy, nutritious lunches which the children actually enjoy eating.
Creating an online food supply with the target audience consisting of students and teachers, is not an easy task – especially, when parental permission is involved. Sigma Solve had to devise a custom solution for the client, in which a system where users could select different meals, drinks, and side meals, would be developed, while also addressing the end users’ concern of food allergies. In addition, the client wished to reduce the work of users by providing the functionality to repeat meals on select days and weeks.
- Upon launching the nopCommerce website, business boomed and high levels of growth and revenue resulted. The website also helped users to select meals as per their needs, giving them the convenience and ease to select meal choices for up to the next 4 weeks. Clients could keep track of and monitor the orders, given the ability to generate different reports as per the availability in the admin panel.
