Today, many individuals are used to dine-out. However, they are unaware of the business operation on that particular moment of the day. Several times, we end up arriving at the restaurant only to find that it is closed/having a break. Hence, we propose a framework for a system of related applications which solves the above problem by being informative regarding the business operability to the customers. Firstly, a trader side framework that allows food stall operators to inform the status and nature of their business to their customers whether they are open for business or not. Secondly, a customer side framework for the food stall operator customers to view restaurant status, menu and to place booking. Mobile applications are developed based on the proposed framework for both trader and customer. And lastly, a website is developed for the general public to view the business status of the stall operators. By being able to inform customers the status of the business, it will provide convenience to many people in our society. Our contribution will be the aforementioned framework as well as mobile apps and website which provides convenience to many people in our society, in terms of reducing time wastage as well as fuel costs to the stall’s destination.
