Fordham adds mobile food ordering

Mobile ordering coincides with larger food-service changes

Andrew Hudson   ||   Sep 30, 2016  ||   ,

Fordham University has launched mobile food ordering app, Tapingo for a number of its campus venues, following some changes to the university's food service operations.

According to the Fordham Ram, students can order food from the campus' Urban Kitchen, Cosi, A Crust Above and Salt & Sesame locations. Each of the locations list their full menus and pricing information via the app, and accept dining dollars, debit cards and credit cards.

According to Fordham's dining contract liaison, Tapingo has had at least 451 students register for the app since launching on campus this fall semester. Fordham has a total enrollment of roughly 15,000.

Tapingo is still new to the Fordham community, but university officials are optimistic about the app's initial adoption. Fordham is currently leveraging the app's standard ordering and pick-up capabilities. There is no word yet on whether the app's delivery option will be supported.

The introduction of Tapingo at Fordham, in part, coincides with the university's move to new food-service provider Aramark, and as expected, part of the app's proliferation on Fordham's campus will depend on the campus' still fledgling transition to its new food-service vendor. Fordham announced the change on April 18th, replacing Sodexo as the university’s food-service provider after a nearly five month bidding process.

The transition from Sodexo to Aramark saw the university address multiple concerns including student engagement, dining plans and an improvement to communications between the Fordham community and university dining.
