Got questions? We can help.
I’m already listed on other apps. Why do I need my own app?
Not only do most apps charge 30% of your order, they also keep your diner data for themselves. A branded app from ChowNow puts your brand front and center, never costs you commissions, and gives you full access to your diner info for marketing.
What steps do I take to get a branded mobile app?
If you’re already a ChowNow partner on our Pro subscription, you can get started with these steps.

- Let’s Get Your Apps Live: Video Series
- What is the Apple Developer Program?

Once you’ve done the above, ChowNow will take it from there to start building your app.
How can I promote my app to diners?
Our marketing experts will help you launch your app. We recommend starting off with an app-only promo, then using our automated email marketing, print marketing, and in-store signage to get the word out. Promoting your app on social media is also a great way to link diners directly to your Google Play and Apple App listings.
Can I choose my own colors and images on the app?
With a branded app from ChowNow, you can put your brand front and center. We’ll add your restaurant’s logo, match your brand colors, and upload your menu photos to entice hungry diners.
Can I send text messages to my diners?
We don’t currently have texting functionality, but we do have push notifications. To send a free push notification to your diners, get in touch with your restaurant success manager.
How do I make updates to my menu?
You can manage your menu within your ChowNow dashboard. Any updates made here will automatically show across all your ChowNow ordering channels, including your branded apps.
