User Research: Summary
The user research found that the entire user base can be divided into two main categories, returning customers and the new customers. Since the restaurant did not have a website, the returning customers had to go to the restaurant social media account to find the online ordering link and they wanted an easy way to get access to the online ordering and reservation platforms. The returning customers also requested to have a better view of the menu and also the location.
For the new customers, the current system (the social media account) did not have enough visual items for food and the locations and they also found it hard to find the online ordering and reservation links in the social media posts.
