Online food ordering has grown tremendously in recent years, with an estimated 60% of American consumers ordering food delivery or takeout at least once a week. In fact, in the last 5 years Online Ordering and Delivery has grown 3 times as fast as dine-in traffic, with 1/3 of orders being a minimum of $50.
With third party Online Ordering and delivery companies charging restaurants as much as 20% and in some cases 25% of an order total, it’s clear to see that most restaurants simply find these fees and commissions much too expensive. Studies have shown that 70% of consumers would rather order directly from a restaurant, realizing that their money goes directly to the restaurant and not to a third party company. With 60% of restaurant owners noting that, offering Online Ordering, has generated welcomed incremental sales.
