The Pace of the Restaurant Industry Moving Online
In the past five years, restaurants have moved into the online space faster than originally expected due to technological saturation. Food delivery is growing exponentially and restaurants that wouldn’t normally offer delivery options can now make use of independent contractors who own their own vehicles. There are even restaurants opening with no physical storefront – the menu appears online only with food being ordered via an app or website and delivered directly to the consumer. In developed countries, having food prepared for consumers immediately is no longer for fast food chains, and we’ll see more of these online ventures moving forward.
