Leaving behind Tapingo this new academic year, there’s a new dining app available on campus, Grubhub.
This is a known online ordering company that delivers food from local restaurants or prepares for pickup.
This well-known app is now available for use here on campus for students.
Foundation Dining Services employee Betsy De La Hoya confirms Grubhub bought Tapingo, which is the reason why Cal Poly Pomona made the switch.
Both apps made ordering food easier by allowing students to order ahead of time and remove the stress of waiting in line.
However, Tapingo was designed only for college campuses, making it exclusive to other dining applications. As for Grubhub, it’s for all local restaurants near a user’s destination.
Combining both applications makes it easier for the user to order while on or off campus.
Fourth-year sociology student Melissa Jaime stated how convenient it’s been to order food without having to stand in line. Just a tap on the phone and the order will be placed. One less issue for the fast pace of college life.
“I get to sit and catch up on homework while my food is getting ready,” Jaime said. “Once I reach the counter my name is ready on top of my order.”
Students will get waiting times for dining spots across campus when placing an order, then receive separate notifications when the order has been placed and once it’s ready for pickup.
Each restaurant has a pickup zone with the Grubhub sign hanging above.
Grubhub is especially useful when it’s U-hour on campus and every dining area’s line is long. Downloading the app will give students $2 off the first order.
