Over the past few years, food delivery has been one of the hottest sectors. Billions had been invested in this domain so far- obviously, it couldn’t be for some absurd reason. Rather, there has to be some potential in this industry for which the money is being spent enormously.
There has been a huge splash in home delivery food services and start-ups in the market. This generation is the “next-gen”, to be precise! Apart from the ease of life, which technology has bestowed upon us, there is the ‘time’ which we don’t have now. We hardly have time to take care of our primary requisites, let alone other things. We can’t even afford to cook food or arrange food for ourselves by going outside and standing in the queues.
Below listed are the major benefits stating why food delivery services are worth it!
1. Convenience always win
True that. Who does not want food right at their door step! Convenience plays the role. This is the solitary thing I believe where supply-demand curve doesn’t matter. Demand is never going to decrease, and so the supply!
2. Choice is key
Mainly there are two types of food delivery services: software-only marketplaces & fast-food. Ordering the food online involves three steps- Ordering, Cooking and Delivering.
These software-only marketplaces’ main selling point to restaurants is to bring a lot of new orders and replace their antiquated phone ordering system with an optimized Web and mobile platform, that integrates with their kitchen workflow.
The other category you could term as ‘Fast food’, as they opted for a full integration of the process: they developed their own app through which consumers can order a limited range of meals, reheated in their own fleet of cars as orders come in, and delivered in 15 minutes (as they save on the kitchen preparation time). They trade choice for convenience and a highly curated experience.
While you are working in an office or even watching your favorite episode on a laptop, you might create a craving for some food, some continental cuisine. Maybe the actor on the screen is drooling over some Italian menu. Nothing to worry about! You can simply pick your phone up and pick whatever you want to eat at your favorite restaurant. You could see a soft copy of the entire menu available on the app/website.
Apart from all the benefits which you will get on home-delivery food services, these online food services offer you some discounts and offs over the standard prices. On various occasions or their own anniversaries, food apps and services offer heavy discounts over foods.
Many hotels and restaurants offer assured quality-food. Additionally, they provide you with the diet food as well which is difficult to find when you go to a local restaurant or hotel. So this is one upper-hand which you get if you are concerned about your health and fitness!
