“Fast food brands must now shift from QSR (quick service restaurants) to QMR (quick mobile restaurants), a new rising industry that meets the everlasting shifting mobile app-economy today as three out of four customers will download an app, try new things and dine in at least thrice a month. Approximately, 88 percent of the online population use social networking sites daily and word-of-mouth and reviews remain the top influencers of purchase decision online,” says Mazri, explaining his decision to launch GarfieldEATS as a mobile app.
