Virtual restaurant leader Nextbite conducted study of consumer delivery preferences.

DENVER, Dec. 1, 2021 — Forty three percent of consumers order food delivery once a month or more, and 23% order it weekly, according to a new study of consumers “Top 9 Things You Need to Know About Consumers’ Growing Obsession for Delivery,” conducted by virtual restaurant leader Nextbite.

While still most popular with millennials (71% order weekly), consumers who order food for delivery are expanding into new age groups, with 40% of monthly delivery users over the age of 40. Delivery is very popular with Gen Z, with an average income of $119K (77% higher than the average U.S. income), showing that restaurants offering delivery menus can expand their appeal to these highly desirable restaurant patrons with higher-incomes.
