Tell us a few words about the founders and how the idea came
Hamza Laalj, ex-software senior developer with a business driven mind. A multi-innovation award winner from the UAE’s private and public entities.
The idea came, when I was going to the restaurant in the launch break nearby the company I was working on as a software developer. Initially, I found that I need to wait 10 to 15min (sometimes even more) for the food to be ready. I asked myself, why do I need to wait that much? What if I can pre-order the food from the restaurant using an app before coming to the restaurant so I’ll not wait anymore?
