Food trends in the US meal delivery market
The US is the second largest meal delivery market (behind China) globally. BusinessWire indicated that the US online food delivery market reached a value of 23.4 Billion USD in 2021, and it is expected to reach 42.6 Billion USD by 2027 , with an annual growth rate (CAGR 2021 – 2027) of 10.5%. By analysing data from the three main delivery platforms - DoorDash, Uber Eats, and Grubhub, we are excited to provide insights into the US meal delivery market.
Our data reveals that chicken, salads, and fries are the top three most listed food items on meal delivery in the US. Out of more than 1.3 million Digital Storefronts (DSFs*) in the US by August 2022, around 75% of all DSFs listed chicken, 50% listed salads, and 46% listed fries.
*A DSF refers to the electronic representation of a business on a meal delivery platform. A business can be listed on three different meal delivery platforms (e.g. DoorDash, GrubHub and Ubereats), in our data that would be counted as three DSFs and one outlet.
