The top online food delivery apps in the world

Everyone loves the idea of comfortable dining with amazing restaurant food. As a result, the food delivery market has witnessed a significant rise over the past few years. There might be one or two food delivery apps on your phone. These apps made our lives easier by delivering food anytime and anywhere. 

Every app competes with another to deliver food quickly and at nominal rates. Above all, customers are willing to pay extra for doorstep delivery service. As a result, many apps launched their premium or subscription models for some additional benefits.

According to recent research, since 2014, the online food delivery industry has seen a growth rate 300% higher than dine-in, and revenue generation in the food delivery industry has expanded by 204%. And the numbers are consistently rising with every passing year. 

Online ordering has been beneficial to low-income and small restaurants in many ways. And as per recent reports, the online food delivery industry will reach USD 200 billion by 2025. 

Some apps are ruling the market today because of their user-friendly approach. Not only consumers, but the app also focuses on business.
