In a recent study published by Google, 30% of all Google searches for restaurants are now done on the mobile phone.

Restaurant owners are using mobile apps to manage their menus, advertising, promotions and contact information. Customers can use the mobile apps to order food, make reservations, receive email notifications confirmations with the time, party size and date, and get turn-by-turn directions to the restaurant location.

Restaurants can provide information on their most popular dishes and which locations they do business in, and they can keep track of regular customers’ orders. Mobile apps for restaurants also use maps and directions or directly calling the restaurant with the easy one-touch button. Most notable restaurants using mobile apps are:
