The Food Service
Maybe not every restaurant or cafe around the world would find it necessary to jump into offering immediate delivery but it wouldn't be long before every restaurant will have to confront the effect of delivery in their industry.
Restaurants will have to start rethinking traditional ways of doing business, not only because of an increase in the number of delivery apps, but also because of the changing consumer habits, which are making heads for newer, more convenient dining options such as meal kits, food trucks, and fast-casual restaurants.
With people migrating to cities there’s an increase in demand for these apps as never before.
How the Delivery system can cost restaurants.
