Which Of These Five Food Delivery Services Will Dominate the Market?

Which Of These Five Food Delivery Services Will Dominate the Market?

CaviarSeamlessGrubHubPostmates. Even Uber is getting into the game. What game is that? Getting food from one location to your house.

Takeout delivery options are seemingly limitless. But even with all the players in the takeout space, the startups keep on coming. It seems every month brings a new take on the old concept of having someone pick-up an order from a restaurant and delivering it to some hungry consumer.

But with so many options available – depending on the market where the consumer lives –what are the best takeout options out there. Well, below is a non-scientific study on some services that are being used and will probably grow in their popularity. These newer services that are on the table (so to speak) will make sure that a hungry consumer does not go wanting for grub.

The downside is also its strength: Very often that greasy hole-in-the-wall won’t be available on Caviar.

A lot of them cater to at-home services, like ingredient packaging for meals and test-it-out culinary boxes sent monthly to dip your toes into new products you may not otherwise try — or even know about. And let’s not forget about food delivery services.

Enter MunchQuick — A D.C.-based startup that was founded in April and ambitiously plans to launch at the end of this month. The draw? Healthy and delicious, inexpensive meals delivered right to you. According to CEO Asad Yusupov, all food is made fresh each morning and menus change out daily — two main dishes (one being vegetarian), an app, and a dessert.

The service is app-based and users are able to track their orders in real-time through the app, just like how Uber works. Read More
