Kanakol is an app to view menus of AI suggested restaurants and pre-order food for dine-in and takeaway. Founded by Hamza Laalj, it provides one platform for the entire dining experience. The app aims to minimize time wasted on looking and waiting for food. Users can browse what and where to eat, and pre-order, allowing them to spend more time enjoying the food and less time waiting. To use Kanakol, people can download the app available on both Apple and Play stores. Next, they are suggested selected restaurants and can browse menus with photos and prices of dishes. Once they add preferred items to their cart, they can choose the time they’re going to the restaurant and pre-order. Kanakol is currently only operating in Morocco, but is planning to expand to Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Doha, Casablanca, Rabat, Marrakech and Tangier in the near future.
Kanakol is self-funded with $10,000 from family and friends. So far, it supports 25 restaurants, and is adding new ones every two weeks. It currently has 6000 users, all from Tangier, Morocco, where the app is operating. Kanakol’s regional competitor is the Food app Zomato. However, while Zomato allows users to browse menus and rate, Kanakol has an added feature which allows users to pre-order meals before going into a restaurant. Another feature that sets Kanakol apart from its competitors is that it provides a direct photo for every item in the menu, so users can see exactly what their order will look like.
