Food delivery apps are in trouble

During the peak of COVID-19, these delivery apps gained a lot of customers as everyone was staying home and afraid to go outside and catch the virus.

But, now that the virus is more under control and people are vaccinated, there are fewer orders being placed. And, this has caused a lot of trouble for these companies.

For example, some companies are cutting jobs left and right. They have even started to charge customers more for their orders in order to make up for the loss in revenue. The riders are complaining of not receiving more than 4 orders per day.

So, what does this mean for the future of food delivery? Well, it’s hard to say. But, one thing is for sure; these companies are going to have to make some changes, if they want to stay afloat during these tough times.

About the new company – Deliveroo

Deliveroo is a food delivery company founded in 2013 by William Shu and Greg Orlowski. The company is based in London and works with approximately 180,000 restaurants and grocery partners, as well as around thousands of riders in 11 markets around the world.

Deliveroo is expected to start delivering food by end of this month. Recently Deliveroo riders completed a comprehensive theoretical and practical training program in which they were equipped with all the knowledge needed to operate efficiently and guarantee a seamless customer experience.

Riders are at the heart of our business, and it’s our duty to ensure that  they are well equipped with the knowledge, tools and confidence that allows them to start the journey with Deliveroo in Qatar feeling safe and protected.

Is it the right time for Deliveroo to jump in?

As far as the future of Deliveroo is concerned, it is expected to make a good start since the FIFA World Cup is around the corner. During World Cup, when the streets and restaurants will be full of people, many will prefer to stay at home and order online.

But after the World Cup, we see tough times ahead for the newly launched food delivery app. They may need to focus on aggressive sales strategies to capture the market share of other food delivery apps and we believe they are experienced enough to be able to do so.

Anyways, we wish Deliveroo all the success and hope they will keep their promise of satisfying both the customers and the employees.
