Restaurants and pubs have been busy for months, but the order boom for delivery services is not in sight. “The trend of online ordering continues, even after the restaurant reopens,” says market leader Lieferando. Between July and September, around ten million additional orders were placed through the platform. This corresponds to a growth of 35% compared to Corona summer 2020 and a doubling compared to the pre-crisis level in the third quarter of 2019. Competitor Wolt confirms the trend. In many other countries, it was observed in 2020 that people continued to order after the restaurant opened. “In hotels and restaurants with high tourist and private demand, sales are in part even higher than in the year before the 2019 crisis”, explains the association of hotels and restaurants Dehoga.
