COLUMBUS, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Craving sushi for lunch? Perhaps you’re in need of late-night eats, or maybe your busy schedule doesn’t allow you to spend hours prepping a meal in the kitchen.
Now there’s a solution for the residents of Columbus. Tapingo, the San Francisco-based mobile commerce app, today announced the expansion of the popular service to Columbus, Ohio.
Beginning August 25, customers can download the Tapingo app for free, where they can browse the menus of local restaurants, customize their order, pay, then have their items delivered. To celebrate the launch of Tapingo in Columbus, Tapingo is eliminating delivery fees for new customers and will be hosting special in-app promotions for local favorites.
Tapingo’s delivery service is available from hundreds of restaurants, including local favorites such as Chipotle, White Castle, Pita Pit, Catfish Biffs, and Buckeye Doughnuts.
“Tapingo makes buying and getting food the easiest part of your day,” says Daniel Almog, CEO of Tapingo. “Our first priority is the customer experience, and that means providing the convenience of a speedy delivery at the lowest possible price point, while maintaining the quality of the food.”
Tapingo is an official partner of the Ohio State University, which will serve as a hub for its delivery program. Students on campus can even use their meal plans and dining dollars to order on the app.
With the average user transacting on Tapingo upwards of five times a week, the company has quickly established itself as the go-to commerce app in the vast majority of its geographic markets. “We’ve succeeded in becoming the de facto ‘buy button’ on campus,” says Almog. “And that has given us a foundation for serving the local community in all of our markets. Tapingo is the ideal solution for busy, time-pressed folks.”
Founded in 2012, Tapingo is the leading mobile-commerce app that dramatically improves the life of students and shifts behavior in a practical way. Working with campuses to enhance the student experience, Tapingo integrates with campus technology to offer a range of commerce products. Tapingo processes tens of thousands of transactions per day, and the average user utilizes the service more than five times per week.
