Food Carryout & Delivery
Most consumers order food for carryout or delivery through well-established channels such as pizza restaurants, fast food establishments, and grocery store food bars at least occasionally. However, there are many opportunities for restaurants, stores, and other venues providing meals for carryout or delivery to expand purchases for off-premises consumption. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown that restaurants that do little carryout or delivery business when dine-in service is available have been able to expand these options amidst dine-in closures and stay-at-home orders to maintain some level of business. Consumer behavior is changing short-term, and as people become more comfortable with ordering food for carryout or delivery, they may also change their behavior in the long-term.
