More than 6 in 10 US internet users have ordered food with an app, like GrubHub or Seamless, or from a website, according to a 2017 study by orderTalk, a software provider to the restaurant industry.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, younger people order food digitally more than any age group. Nearly 80% of those 18-34 said they had used apps or websites to get food.
Nearly as many 35-44 year olds (77%) had logged on to order food, compared to 63% of 45-54 year olds.
But website and smartphone food ordering is popular with the older crowd too.
Well over half (56%) of respondents age 55-64 had ordered food online or using an app. What’s more, a third (33%) of users 65+ had ordered food digitally.
