FRESNO, Calif. - Some Downtown Fresno restaurants have just launched their own apps made in Fresno. Kikku Japanese restaurant in Downtown Fresno has its share of loyal customers.
Deneisha Aguilar has been a regular for years and was happy to hear she can order with the new Kikku App.
"I'm so excited. I can't wait to try it. It will be nice and quick and easy to use."
Silvia Wahyudi has owned the restaurant for 16 years and now is bringing it into is in the modern age.
Wahyudi said, "It will provide a highly convenient experience for customers and save time for them, calling in orders and then waiting in line to pay at the registers."
The app was made right here in Fresno by Ordrslip, based at Bitwise. Ordrslip is mobile ordering for restaurants. Employees create the apps and work on fine-tuning it. Companies pay an initial fee to start and a monthly fee to maintain the app.

So all of these businesses downtown will now have an app and bringing that convenience to customers."
