Food Order online for Delivery
While phone orders dominated delivery only five years ago, the balance between meal orders placed over the phone versus those placed online have nearly switched, with internet orders on track to surpass phone orders any minute now.
In the year ended May 2010, approximately 1.39 billion phone delivery orders were placed in the US, according to market research firm NPD. By May 2015, that number had dropped to about 1.02 billion. In the same period, online orders more than doubled from approximately 403 million to nearly 904 million.
GrubHub launched its services in 2004, and has benefitted from both the early start and the change in ordering preferences. Seamless, which began offering consumers online ordering in 2005, merged with GrubHub in 2013, and the company now includes MenuPages and allmenus as well. But while GrubHub had a “first mover advantage, ” according to a report from Cowen and Company, startups are eating away at it—despite its massive network of more than 30, 000 restaurants—because consumers are increasingly looking for higher quality food options.
Services like UberEATS, Caviar, Postmates, and DoorDash are providing delivery services for restaurants that don’t have their own, upgrading customers’ dinner choices from the typical pizza, sushi and Chinese food to include more artisanal, freshly prepared, and lovingly packed meal options. These companies handled orders totaling 0 million in 2014, says Cowen and Company, and that’s expected to jump to .6 billion in 2016. GrubHub, meanwhile, is expected to grow its .5 billion in 2014 orders to .6 billion in 2016. GrubHub is still ahead in volume, but is lagging in terms of growth.
Although Taco Bell (through DoorDash), Chipotle and McDonald’s (both through Postmates), are now offering delivery in some cities through these startups, consumers aren’t necessarily looking for the cheapest food when they order online. These services are taking seats at what was once GrubHub’s table because they offer higher quality food, even if they offer fewer options, according to a report from Cowen.
