User Research Summary
I created empathy maps and conducted research to understand the user I’m designing for. The research concluded that the average 9-5 worker does not have enough time to get lunch during their lunch break.
The research participants revealed that time was very important for their lunch breaks. It was revealed that time had to include: ordering, picking up order, and eating.  Efficiency of the site was very important for all users.
