Sales in pizzerias are slowing down because of food delivery applications such as Uber Eats, Skip the Dishes and Foodora. What can your business do about it, pizzeria or not, to make sure that whatever changes are happening in the food industry you will stand out? Continue reading to find out.
Growing up, we all know what was the popular meals to order at home for the family, it was the local pizzeria, fried chicken baskets and if we were lucky enough, we also got the chance to have a local Chinese restaurant that delivered. In 2019, things are different. Families have now access to applications with tons of different food styles, from different cultures, there’s no limit to what we can have access to, only by using our phones. Some restaurants are trying to follow the trend, they invest in an online ordering system that sets them apart, but it doesn’t seem to change.
Still a good market
Although pizzerias seem to be slowing down in the market, they’re still doing great. Euromonitor International pegged the annual global pizza market has to be US$134-billion in 2018. The reason why this market is still doing great is because of one thing that sets it apart,pizza is a food you can share sit down with family/friends and have a good time together.
What the customers never knew they wanted.
Even though we clearly see a trend for different delivery options, the sharing factor isn’t something we see much with other foods, when in reality, online ordering most of the time is used by families and large groups of people together. What can your business do to profit just like the pizza market did for decades? Create a menu that revolves around sharing. An online menu is as cheap and convenient, and that gives something different to the customer.
Did you know that 70 percent of consumers say they’d rather order directly from a restaurant, preferring that their money goes straight to the restaurant and not a third party? Also, 63 percent of consumers agree that it is more convenient to get delivery than dining out with a family. This is a market that needs to be expanded to its full potential, small to medium businesses find it too expensive to create an online ordering system and doing business with a delivery app takes a lot of profit away which makes it not worth the hassle.
