Randy is joined by Christa in an off-site location, the Family Room, to discuss the luxuries of dining from an app.

It’s all about Convenience

  • 60 percent of U.S. consumers order delivery once per week. 
    • 31 percent using delivery services twice a week 
  • It has been predicted that by 2020, mobile order-ahead will be a $38 Billion industry.

    • 25% of consumers say they spend more on off-premise orders compared to when dining in. 
      • Is this scary for mom and pop shops that can’t keep up with the demand? 

In the first quarter of 2016, 24% of Starbucks’ orders were paid for using the company’s app, compared with 21% in the fourth quarter of 2015.
