What’s For Dinner? The Future of Meal Delivery Apps
July 15, 2020
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz! Europe-based Just Eat Takeaway, a merger between U.K.’s Just Eat and Netherlands-based Takeaway, is set to acquire its US competitor Grubhub in a $7.3B deal, beating out Uber. The new company will have an active customer base of 70M. When the pandemic forced restaurants to close on-site dining and find other ways to stay in business, Glasserie, a Brooklyn, N.Y. Mediterranean restaurant, experimented with delivery and takeout apps including Seamless, Grubhub and DoorDash. But they were disappointed by the fees and difficulty getting help using the apps’ service. It took one delivery app more than six weeks to update menu photos and other requested changes. Owner Sara Conklin said about 95 percent of sales are now coming directly from the restaurant’s website rather than through app companies. We’ll ask Chef Chris Hall of Local Three pizzeria, and Randy Evins, Evan Bowler and David Gruehn at SAP for their take on What’s For Dinner? The Future of Meal Delivery Apps.
