Kip Café : Delivery for Teams

A new way for delivery service in conversation commerce

Feeling hungry? Try Kip Café on Slack!

One of the major problems that all groups face is ordering lunch delivery for the team. It’s time consuming with multi-channel back-and-forth conversations about diet and food preferences with multiple options buried inside the menu. The conversation usually goes something like this:

Vegetarian? How about a sandwich?
Would you like soup or salad with that sandwich? 
Maybe a coffee? 
Whole milk, 2%, fat-free, almond, soy or other?

And that’s just an individual order. In a group of 8 people or more, it can take over an hour just to put together a lunch order. It’s frustrating, annoying and makes for a hangry (that’s hungry + angry!) team.
