    > I assume there was some additional context about the order in the form that the restaurant filled out, to assist in the end-of-month bookkeeping?

    Sure, there were a couple extra fields.

    > And unless you built reporting into the MVP, I bet your friend got to learn how to use some kind of database GUI (e.g. phpMyAdmin) and/or basic queries?

    I don't really remember, but I bet we'd include an option to export to Excel. This project was built on Rails, and there are readily available gems to export data. Also, I believe we had a dashboard powered by https://github.com/ankane/chartkick. Setting it up may have taken 50% of time. Was it necessary? No. Did I mention this in my post, saying we could have done it in a day? Also no :D

    > This tripped me up for a second. In this context, "free" indicates that the courier was available..

    Thanks for catching this, changed it to "available" for clarity
