Over the past five years, at least throughout much of Europe, food delivery services have grown in popularity to the point where restaurants are usually listed on at least one. However, as the pandemic has swept the globe – and traditional sit-down establishments were periodically forced to close – the number of bars, restaurants and even supermarkets signing up to food delivery services has increased dramatically.
While the adoption rate of these services has been amplified by Covid, food delivery apps will undoubtedly continue to play an enormous role in the restoration of the food industry, even beyond the pandemic.
he proven success of many restaurants’ endeavours to go digital through the use of accessible food delivery apps has redefined the idea of ‘restaurant’. A sit-down restaurant can now operate in the same way as a food truck or a delivery-only takeaway.
In the post-Covid world, consumer lifestyle changes will mean that, for restaurants, a hybrid infrastructure might be necessary in order to continue operating successfully. This is because the number of occasions in which someone might order food for delivery has increased dramatically, and the requirement for physical space for patrons is diminishing. In the not-so-distant future, many new restauranteurs will likely choose to capitalise on the growing demand for home delivery and operate ‘dark’ or ‘virtual’ kitchens, which are traditionally much smaller premises dedicated to fulfilling online delivery orders. Tech startups such as Deliverect, which creates a central hub between food delivery service providers and restaurants, is just one of many start-ups that are helping the food industry to become more efficient and to grow and adapt.
