What Problem Are They Solving?

Deciding how, what, and where to eat has never been at your convenience. This decision process normally involves navigating across several apps or websites, searching for restaurants that serve your appetite while comparing prices and value. The delivery route of these services from our competitors has low efficiency and generates tons of toxic pollution in to the environment.

We have found a solution that provides a one-stop platform for consumer food services, such as food delivery, mobile pick-up, and prepaid reservations, that features a cashback incentive model. 
Backed with AI technology, we empower dynamic pricing along with a positive social impact through delivery efficiency. CMEOW strongly believes the importance to save time, reward our customers on every purchase, and to unify the entire shopping experience.
