If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that food delivery service apps are the real deal and are the future of takeout. With so many people staying at home to try to control the spread of Covid-19, more restaurants partnered with delivery apps to bring their delicious cuisine right to your door. It helped keep local places in business and brought a new level of convenience to everyone.
