Before the outbreak of Covid-19, most people loved to visit eateries and restaurants. And, the ordering cycle went like this: you would visit your favorite restaurants, make your order, and wait for the food to be delivered to your table. Then COVID came, and the social distancing and lockdowns caused more consumers to get on their phones, place orders, and have food delivered to them in their homes.
According to a McKinsey 2021 report, food delivery is a global market worth more than $150 billion. In Nigeria, these food delivery services offer selections from dozens of cuisines and restaurants, and depending on your location, you can make an order and pay through your smartphone, or on delivery at your doorstep.
In the last five years, the growth rate for online food ordering and restaurant delivery was over 20%, and global online food delivery rates are expected to grow to more than $220 billion by 2025, meaning even more restaurants and third-party platforms are expected to offer food delivery options for consumers.
