Track real-time food orders and consumption in restaurants.
Creating a system which allows to track orders in the restaurants. The tracking would be done in real-time and the data would be available freely to everyone (individual orders or aggregated statistics) through a web site/mobile app/api.
To motivate a customer and a restaurant to participate, there is a specific application planned. A customer would be able to see the trending food/orders per restaurant based on number of orders and/or rating of the food.
simple management of the current food menu (user: restaurant)
recording of what have been ordered (user: customer or restaurant)
rating the ordered food (user: customer)
providing different statistics about trending orders/food, e.g. currently trending food per restaurant, the best food in the last day, summaries about food categories (user: EVERYONE)
Opportunities (not in scope for Open Food Hackday, save for later)
trend evaluation through statistics (side-artefact: raw data) as made available freely to the public (e.g. "This Friday night, Zurich has eaten 127 cows, in restaurants)
application of restaurant to offer rebated prices for meals primarily based on their remaining stock food
