Good news if you are looking for a new pre-order app as Shake Shack has finally unveiled the Android app in Google Play Store. It was back in March that Shake Shack first came out with an app for digital orders, although that was for iOS and not Android.
Fast forward a few months and we now have the Shake Shack app available on Android. Continue to read on to learn more about the app and how it can help you with all of your ordering needs.
Shake Shack Android App Hits Google Play
It seems like it has been a long time coming, but the Shake Shack Android app has finally been unveiled. McDonald’s and Starbucks have already come out with apps to enhance the online ordering experience, and now Shake Shack is following their lead. This app will allow you to pre-order your items that you would like to pickup, and it will also help you order online anytime from anywhere.
There are a lot of things you can do with this app, just as you can a lot of other restaurant chain apps, so if you have any other restaurant apps on your Android device you will get a general idea of what this app can do for you.
The numbers seem to indicate that things are changing to a mobile market. Mobile orders often times are bigger than the traditional orders, usually an average of 15 percent bigger. On top of that, when Shake Shack came out with the iOS app, it led to it being downloaded over 350,000 times. For the restaurant, it seems that it is definitely going to be beneficial in a business sense.
When you think about Android, it has a way bigger user base than iOS, so that means the Android app should get over a half-million downloads or more pretty quickly and easily. App orders right now are about three percent of the Shake Shack sales, although that number likely will go up quite a bit with the release of the Android app.
