Swoope, which was founded in Birmingham, is an app that offers the ability to preorder your food and drink, pay for it, and collect it when it is ready. Saving you precious time (particularly during your lunch break), you will receive a message when it is ready, so you only have to stroll down and collect it.

The process is simple – open the app, choose your favourite venue, peruse the menu, select what you want, when you want to collect it, and go through the checkout. You will receive a message telling you when the order is received, accepted, and ready for collection. There is even a function where you can actually message the venue directly (if you are running late etc) and if you wish to eat in, you can even select the food, order and pay, and have it ready for when you arrive to sit down.

Not forgetting, the great deals. So not only can Swoope save you time but money too! Users of Swoope will be able to find what deals are on nearby and at their favourite venues – including money off coffees, sandwiches, pizzas, wraps, burgers, cakes, BOGOF on main meals, and more.

There is also a loyalty programme tied in. Once you have placed and received your order, you will be able to rate the venue and receive loyalty points. These loyalty points can be turned into high street vouchers. A new feature will be a virtual reward card – coming soon – enabling users to collect stars to get a free item. These will be available for every venue.

If you would rather eat in, you can sit down and pay for your food and drinks from your table, which means you can just leave when you are finished, all orders have an emailed receipt.

Swoope also let earn stars every time you order, which you exchange for highstreet vouchers like amazon.
