The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we do business, especially in foodservice. The restaurant industry has seen more changes than just about any other business because of local and national health regulations. Operations underwent a shift towards takeout and delivery to recoup some of the revenue they have lost due to closures and limited seating.
Like most industries across the globe, food service has changed drastically in the last year. With in-person dining on hold, Canadian restaurants have experienced an influx in the demand for carryout and takeout orders.
During times of uncertainty like the current climate, comfort food is often desired. In Canada, our favourite foods warm us up, reward us, and get us through both fun and not-so-happy days.
There's no way around it. Food delivery is becoming more and more important to the Canadian foodservice industry, and as technologies continue to evolve and digital ordering becomes more popular, food delivery will become even more important.
