Takeaway apps going strong despite reopening

It has been well over a month since coronavirus restrictions were eased in England, meaning the hospitality industry has been able to thrive again. For many businesses, sit down service is no longer their majority source of income as consumer habits have shifted.

Some businesses are still seeing takeaways on delivery apps such as Just Eat and Deliveroo be up to half of their takings.

Almost a quarter of people are spending more on takeaway apps than they were spending pre-pandemic, despite being able to go out to restaurants now.

Britons were spending on average £38 on takeaways a month pre-pandemic, according to accounting giant KPMG.

Will Hawkley, KPMG's global head of leisure and hospitality said: "The change that would have happened in three to five years in the sector has happened in months when businesses reacted as the pandemic started."
