The Challenge

YEStaurants is an Iowa-based startup that seeks to connect people with local, non-chain restaurants and skip the wait. With an MVP feature set determined, YEStaurants needed the support of a software development team to quickly bring their MVP to life.

YEStaurants partnered with Shift to help them quickly get a product idea into the market that could be tested by end users.

OUR
APPROACH

An agile software development approach was key to getting the initial phase of this product completed quickly. YEStaurants’ CTO served as the product owner, working closely with the Shift product team to determine the overall roadmap, plan each sprint, and set feature priority. The current state of the product was demoed every two weeks, allowing YEStaurants to provide feedback and assess the need to pivot and reprioritize features.

The Solution

The initial phase of development included the launch of iOS and Android applications for end users — built using React Native — as well as an admin platform for both restaurants and YEStaurants. Through this software, end users are able to see which restaurants are accepting orders near them and then place orders for pickup or dine-in, while restaurants are able to manage all incoming food orders through a simple admin interface. By providing YEStaurants with an admin platform, YEStaurants can move quickly in onboarding new restaurants and easily manage current restaurant partners.
