In Britain, takeaways have been a popular form of dining. It is considered as a leisure occasion when people order a pizza or Chinese food or anything else from a takeaway outlet. According to a report, UK households spend an average of five pounds per person every week on ordering food. In 2016, the collectively spent amount was 10 billion British pounds.

However, with the emergence of online orders, the market is experiencing a new trend. The delivery food market was estimated to be 6.2 billion pounds in the year 2017.

The online food delivery platforms- Just Eat and Deliveries are the two major players in the UK market. They have the same way of functioning. They connect the restaurants to the customers providing an option of either pickup or delivery at home.

Just Eat has processed over 100 million orders in the year 2017 in the UK and in 2019, it ranks second in the top charts after Uber Eats.

The Business model of just Eat for your Reference

Just Eat has a multi-sided business model. There are two interdependent customer segments that are both needed for the operations.

  1. The Customers : People who will be availing the food delivery service from the local restaurants.
  2. Restaurants : The local food service venues that offer food delivery and wish to increase their customers via innovative methods.

Value Concept

Just Eat has three main things to offer its customers: convenience, performance, and customization.


The company offers convenience by first looking for all the restaurants within a given location for takeout options. They make sure that the customers do not spend too much time searching multiple websites. The company makes food delivery service easier as they provide reviews and rankings for a particular restaurant while the customer places an order. The app allows customers to make hassle-free online payment through credit cards or mobile wallets.

The company offers strong performance and has invested heavily in technology. This has resulted in a robust and scalable platform that does not slow down in peak demand intervals.


The company also enables customization and the consumers have choices if they want to pick up their order or to get it delivered. Also, they provide various payment options including online and cash.

Another important thing that Just Eat offers its customers is risk-free transactions. It offers a money-back guarantee if the restaurants do not recoup their sign-up fee on order. Also, the company offers a value proposition for the customers and the restaurant owners in the form of its brand. The app has more than 13 million active users for the app and it is a market leader in more than 12 of its 15 working countries. It is also included in the list of the UK’s fast 50 which includes fastest-growing tech firms in the country.

Scope of On-Demand Delivery Apps like Postmates

As per the report in Techcrunch, Postmates has reached 70% of the US household and it claims to complete 5 million deliveries per month. The company has planned to use drones to deliver food by the year 2021.

DoorDash is a competitor of the Postmates app and ranks first in the food and drinks category in the US. The company is growing at cutthroat speed of 325 % year after year.

This shows there is a huge scope for the startups and the old delivery companies as well to upgrade their technologies.


Two models to consider while building your own Food Delivery App

If you plan to have your own on-demand food delivery startup, here are two major solutions that you can offer.

Aggregator Model

This type of application is a platform to manage the restaurants and the customers that are in a similar vicinity. The customer can use the app to browse through the available cuisines and restaurants. In the aggregator model, you can place the order after checking the reviews and ratings, etc. however, once the order is placed, the aggregator’s job is done. It is now the restaurant’s duty to deliver the food to your home.

Food Delivery With Logistics

This is the second type of solution that you can offer to your customers. This is the category in which Uber Eats and other apps similar to it fall into. This is the most profitable business model for small-scale restaurants and food joints, which gain visibility and are more accessible for the customers. The app will take care of food orders, and will also ensure safe and proper delivery at your place. Such apps have hired delivery personnel for the same. From logistics management to actual food delivery, the app manages everything.
