Despite a recent Roy Morgan survey report showing that supermarkets have been grabbing market-share from chicken shops,  recent data from NAB and Australia Bureau of Statistics (ABS), has also heralded that takeaway food services have grown by 11.43 per cent in the year ended 31 August 2016.

Over the same period, total supermarket sales volumes grew less by comparison – Woolworths reported growth of just 1.7 per cent, and Coles 2.9 per cent.

Online delivery platforms favour takeaways

Since January 2016 online delivery platforms such as Menulog and Deliveroo have proliferated enabling customers to make their choices in a relaxed fashion from the comfort of their own homes, and have the food delivered to the door thereby allowing them to avoid the bad weather outside.

These delivery companies have also raised the standard of takeaway available by offering deliveries from third party gourmet establishments.
