Like most Millennials, I love staying in and avoiding the crushing weight of the outside world. And nothing gets my anxiety going more than a packed sit-down restaurant when all I want to do is eat in peace and quiet.
So how can I have my cake and eat it to?
That question has been answered by companies like GrubHub, Seamless, UberEats, and DoorDash. All I have to do is go on their website or app, find eligible restaurants close to me, and bang! I’ve got some stranger hand delivering me a full meal while I keep my PJ’s on.
Online, on-demand food services have been around for years, but they were mostly contained to cities like LA and New York and the selection of restaurants was modest at best.
Today, you can find nearly every restaurant offering their food for online delivery or pick-up and most average size metropolitan cities offer some form of this service. Larger chains like Starbucks and smaller healthy restaurants have all recently jumped on board and offer their food to these services.
In 2019, look for the online food delivery market to grow even more and for the corporate food giants to take full advantage. And if you live in a smaller city, expect to see more of your local restaurants to offer online delivery.
