According to a study, almost half of the Australian population has ordered food online till now. This reflects the skyrocketing demand for food delivery apps. Not only pizzas and burgers, more than 100 types of cuisines can be ordered online in Australia. The tempting food photography, customer reviews, assorted food options, great offers, convenient online payment simply make food apps the best choice for foodies.
In modern busy schedule and lifestyle, it’s quite hard for many people to prepare food at home, or manage time to dine-out. So, the need for online food delivery services is in demand. Through this post, I’m sharing Australia’s most popular food apps that give you a convenient menu for all your favourite cafes and restaurants, and lets you order and get the food delivered to your doorstep. But before that, let’s understand:
How food delivery services work in Australia
Online food delivery services platforms give restaurants access to an online platform through which customers can order their food. The restaurants pay commissions of up to 35%. Orders are delivered either by the restaurants’ own drivers or the platforms’ third-party contractors.
Best online Food Delivery and Ordering services/apps in Australia
- Menulog : Menulog is one of the largest online food delivery app in Australia, offering delicious meals with over 7,500 outlets. Customers can enjoy more than 130 cuisines at best price.
- Hey You: Hey You is a godsend angel for the morning coffee fiend. It does an extremely good job of tracking your previous orders and making it easy to order them again, so it takes literally seconds to stab in your coffee and/or toast order as you’re stumbling off the train towards your favourite cafe near your office.
- Foodora: Foodora is one of the premium food apps in Australia which delivers only cuisines from the best of the restaurants. The app displays curated list of reputed restaurants and follows a streamlined process of ordering and delivering food.
- Skip : Skip is another one for coffee fiends. It’s a Hey You competitor and its hook is that it makes ordering every bit as easy — even down to the super-simplified interface.
- Delivery Hero: Delivery Hero is all about popular lunch and dinner choices — it’s where you’d go to order from your local pizza place or that great Chinese down the road.
- Deliveroo: Deliveroo focuses on selling and delivering sumptuous food to homes and offices.Deliveroo lets you track your food in real time, and for the most part the app promises sub-30-minute delivery times, which helps it fit into tight lunch breaks and for you to time it closely with your commute home after a long day.
- UberEATS: Uber Eats is a newer meal delivery service than other leading brands. Launched in Australia just two years ago in April 2016, the service has quickly taken off. Uber Eats is used by 16.4% of Metrotechs putting it ahead of Menulog/Eatnow.com.au on 13.4%, Deliveroo on 7.3% and Foodora on 3.8%.
According to research by @findercomau, a third of Australians living in capital cities order through online food delivery services Menulog, UberEats, Deliveroo and Foodora. There are 68 million online food orders each year and over 7,000 orders each hour.
The research shows that Australians are spending a whopping $2.6 billion each year on delivered meals and drinks, equating to an average individual spend of $1,590 each year. Sydneysiders appear to be the biggest fans of ordering online (or the laziest) spending an average of $1,958 each year.
