There is no markup on food items (compared to in-restaurant prices) and right now, they are offering $1, $2, $3 drinks specials!
Ritual is a different type of food app. Originally super popular with the office crowd, Ritual allows you to skip the lineup when picking up your food order by pre-ordering using the app. They guarantee that the prices within the app will be the same as in-store prices, so you don’t need to worry about fees or higher prices on the takeout you love. Now, it is still very convenient to bypass lines using Ritual. Many more restaurants tend to be on Ritual compared to the food delivery apps such as Uber Eats, SkipTheDishes or DoorDash, since it is primarily a pickup service and anecdotally, Ritual charges restaurants less service fees than other delivery apps.
Ritual has their own rewards program called Ritual Rewards where you can earn points for eating at participating restaurants. In addition to not paying any more than purchasing in-restaurant, you can also earn bonus points towards discounts off future orders. The rewards program depends on each participating restaurant, but there are some very generous rewards being offered and since it’s all on the app, you don’t need to carry around lots of loyalty cards.
Another good use for Ritual is to browse restaurant menus. Since you know there is no markup compared to restaurant menus, you can plan your orders by using Ritual’s app as a giant menu for all your favourite restaurants. Once you’re ready to order, skip the line with their tracking system which tells you when your food will be ready and you can go in, grab your food and go. Plus, they always have discounts and bonus offers from participating restaurants so you can take advantage of special feature menu items, then pickup once it’s ready. No need to stand at a restaurant to wait for your food to be ready, Ritual will tell you once it’s ready so you can pop in, grab your food and be on your way.
The app itself is very intuitive. You can use their “piggyback” option where someone else can pick up your order on your behalf, if you have several friends ordering at the same place at the same time. No need to try to split the bill, plus the person doing the pickup can get rewards for helping out! You might recognize Ritual’s distinctive colours on iPads at many restaurants since so many restaurants have adopted Ritual’s ordering platform.
