United States Food Carryout and Delivery - 2020 Research Report Highlighting Consumer Trends, Behaviors and Motivations in Light of COVID-19 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "Food Carryout & Delivery" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Most consumers order food for carryout or delivery through well-established channels such as pizza restaurants, fast food establishments, and grocery store food bars at least occasionally. However, there are many opportunities for restaurants, stores, and other venues providing meals for carryout or delivery to expand purchases for off-premises consumption.

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown that restaurants that do little carryout or delivery business when dine-in service is available have been able to expand these options amidst dine-in closures and stay-at-home orders to maintain some level of business. Consumer behavior is changing short-term, and as people become more comfortable with ordering food for carryout or delivery, they may also change their behavior in the long-term.

With a focus on what's next - along with bringing decades of food and beverage market perspective and analysis to the table - Food Carryout and Delivery is packed with insights about consumer trends, behavior, and motivations to help restaurants, retailers, packaging companies, investors, and service providers gauge consumer perspectives and opportunities for growth in a competitive market.

Food Carryout and Delivery delivers actionable predictions and recommendations designed to guide restaurants, retailers, service providers, and investors in making business decisions by providing data and insights about the food carryout and delivery market.
