Most of my favorite fast food restaurants have their own dedicated phone apps for ordering meals before you get to their location. This is convenient if you don’t want to get stuck in a 20 minute line at the drive-thru during a lunch or dinner rush. I also like to do it if I’m up early some morning and would like some hot pancakes and sausage before starting my day. If you get an estimate in the app for how long the order should take, you can avoid a situation where there’s an unexpected line before you bother leaving your house or wherever you work if it’s your lunch break. It’s not a life changing improvement, but I appreciate it nonetheless. Even though my favorite cannabis dispensary doesn’t have its own phone app yet, they do have a website with its own ordering system in place. It is much more convenient for me to buy all of my cannabis products off the dispensary’s website before leaving the house. They will confirm with you either by email or by text if and when your products are bagged and ready to pickup. This is better than waiting in line forever at the cannabis dispensary without knowing what products are left in stock behind the counter. And since the menu on the dispensary’s website updates as people make purchases, you can typically figure out what’s available without having to go and look for yourself. I quit doing walk-in orders after learning about the convenience of online orders from the cannabis dispensary’s website. The dispensary employees love it too because it’s less work for them. Much of the work with the cash register is already done by the computer.
