Project Challenges

  • We used two frameworks WordPress as well as CodeIgniter; so we faced difficulties in integrating CI using WordPress
  • Admin should be able to manage all content, plans and prices, menu, testimonials, services, partners, sponsored athletes as well as meal gallery
  • Fully manageable frontend using backend was one of the toughest tasks too.
  • On time tasks deliveries were quite difficult, as this is a service based website that needs full support.
  • Understanding the concept of the client and implementing it in the form of the fully functional website.
  • Making sure that the payment details of the customers remain safe and secured.
  • Incorporating the list of features given by client into the website to make it easy for customers to place order for meals.

  • Once the meals and their prices were fixed, the planning started from deciding the menu and preparing the meal gallery for the customers so that they can have a look at the dishes before ordering them.
  • The next step was working on ‘order now’ menu. If a customer is new, he needs to sign up by filling
    up the basic information to keep in the records. Once the customer is done, he/she can order from the comprehensive range of menu items.
  • The planning also included showing customers worth of buying it from the fuel food. So, there is a comparison chart along with the list of menu items where customers can see the difference in the prices of the items between the fuel food and other restaurants. Also, it is mentioned how much time, effort and money it would take to buy the ingredients from super market and cook it at home.
  • All the planning has been done keeping in mind the benefit of customers and to provide them healthy, yet delicious food.


The website was made in PHP using My SQL. The frameworks like WordPress as well as CodeIgniter were used to develop this website. The modules included customer profile, orders, blogs and various others.
The three tier architecture is perfect for this website, as it incurs so many benefits. As the changes in one tier will not affect others, you can update and make the changes wherever you want, without the entire website getting affected. So, it is really easy to maintain the website. Also, the flexibility is increased because of the managed independence. Here we have applied the three tier architecture i.e. presentation, data storage and domain logic…

  • Presentation : This is basically for the better user interface for client interaction. It involves the use of GUI (Graphical User Interface) in order to give users better browsing experience on your website.
  • Data Storage tier : This is for the storage of media for images; it is managed with the help of MySQL. It consists of the database servers.
  • Domain Logic tier : is also known as the middle tier, business logic tier or data access tier. It is responsible for performing the process and controlling the functionality of the website.

Development Highlights

We used WordPress as our framework in order to make our website scalable and easily manageable. We can update. change the design as well as extend the functionality as and when we want. The detailed research was carried out in order to know the likes and dislikes of people regarding diet meals. The site was developed in a short span, yet highly functional and useful.

  • A lot of people signed up and ordered food
  • People liked it and became regular customers
  • Improved visibility
  • Considerable increment in the sales rate
