Food delivery is a courier service in which a restaurant, store, or independent food delivery company delivers food to a customer. An order is typically made either through a restaurant or grocer's app, website or phone, or through a food ordering company. In the beginning years, Food Delivery started as a service provided over the phone, where restaurants carried the meals to the customers after they ordered on the phone. Increasing Internet penetration and the development of new apps facilitated new ways of ordering online. Online food delivery has over half of the total food delivery market share. Online restaurant ordering is growing 300% faster than dine-in traffic.
