Food delivery and takeaway market in the United Kingdom (UK) - Statistics & Facts

Published by Jennifer Luty, Jan 15, 2019
Takeaways have been a popular form of dining in Britain for a long time. Ordering a pizza, Chinese or other cuisine from a takeaway outlet is often considered a leisure occasion similar to eating out in a restaurant. UK households spend an average of around five British pounds per person per week on takeaway meals. Collectively, they spent a total of approximately 10 billion British pounds on takeaways in 2016. With the emergence of online ordering technology and companies dedicated to restaurant delivery, the market has entered a new era. The delivered food market was estimated to be worth 6.2 billion British pounds in 2017, largely thanks to the rise of online delivery concepts. Although telephone orders still account for the largest share of orders, the amount of meal deliveries ordered online has increased dramatically.

UK-based platforms Just Eat and Deliveroo are two major players in the food delivery market. Both act as an intermediary between restaurants and customers, providing an online platform for ordering meals to be delivered to the home. Just Eat processed over 100 million orders in the UK in 2017, representing the company’s biggest market. Another UK platform Hungryhouse (previously owned by Delivery Hero) was also acquired by Just Eat in 2016. Global brand Domino’s Pizza, operating in the UK under the master franchise Domino’s Pizza Group, is a major player on the pizza delivery market, offering customers the ability to order online as well as by phone. Alongside Just Eat, Domino’s holds a significant share of the takeaway food market.

According to Statista’s Digital Market Outlook, revenues from online takeaway orders and the restaurant delivery market are expected to continue growing.
