This report from the US is fascinating.
In 2015, Americans spent more money at restaurants than at the grocery shop. Forty percent of all new leases in Manhattan this year, more than clothing stores, banks, and health clubs combined, according to data from the real-estate company Cushman & Wakefield are moving into restaurants.
Based on the current trend in 2020, more than half of restaurant spending is projected to be “off-premise”—not inside a restaurant but in deliveries, drive-throughs, and takeaway meals which will be over 80 percent of the industry’s growth in the next five years.
It so the grocery shop may soon go another example of how delivery is becoming much more important.
