People value their time a lot and prefer to save it doing shopping online, ordering goods, food and dishes. It’s no surprise that such services as food delivery are flourishing, especially today, when people are concerned about maintaining social distance and self-isolation. Food delivery is not a new phenomenon, but of a constantly growing demand, that’s why new players permanently appear on the market. Now, this market segment is experiencing intensive growth, and for startups, it’s the ideal time to create an on-demand food delivery app.
Typically, business models of food delivery startups fall into 2 big categories:
- a service that works as an aggregator and connects customers and local restaurants
- a service that represents a platform for users and a logistics delivery system for local restaurants
Any of them can use these monetization models:
- a fee is taken from the food delivery app users, it may be fixed or depend on the delivery districts, distance, price of the order, etc.
- a fee is paid by restaurants, some percent of the order price is taken
- a little order fee represents itself a minimum fixed price for the delivery
- advertising in the delivery app
