SHREWSBURY, ENGLAND – Even Michelin Star restaurants are seeing delivery services as a viable route to market with more and more restaurants offering this method of food service in recent times.
Last year, The NPD Group confirmed that the food delivery industry had grown by 50% in value since 2008. Further reports suggest that the industry could grow by a whopping 50% by 2020 increasing its value to £6.3bn.
On a whole, the British food service industry is forecast to grow by an additional 83 million visits in 2018. This means a growth of 0.7% for the whole catering industry. This is projected to increase by 2019 with an extra 93 million. On top of this, the food delivery industry is expected to grow by an additional 101 million orders by 2019. This represents a whopping 16% on 2017!
These stats prove that it is a critical time for restaurants to capitalise on the growth of their industry by ensuring that they are on top of trends. Even Michelin Star restaurants are looking to these additional opportunities by partnering with specialist delivery services like Supper London. The unique delivery service delivers food from London's top restaurants. Recently the company has looked for investments of £500,000 in their business and have struck partnerships with the likes of Tamarind of Mayfair, Fucina and Mac & Wild.
The latter is a Michelin star restaurant in Devonshire Square, London and celebrates the best of the Scottish Highlands exports. They ensure an exquisite dining experience in their restaurants by paying particular interest to the finer details. From choosing luxurious personalised, highest quality Saddle Hide menu covers from Smart Hospitality Supplies, complimenting their rustic and authentic décor to their Scotch Malt whisky bar, they give diners a perfect experience.
To compliment their luxury in-house service and surroundings, they hop by adding a quality, dedicated delivery service that this will help to really promote their brand in a competitive location. Thus stabilising their success and enabling them to offer some of the most extraordinary food available in London.
As time goes on it seems that home delivery will continue to transform the catering industry and restaurants must consider their options or risk ostracising a section of their potential audience.
