The Restaurant and Catering Industry Association of Australia (R&CA) has released a delivery guide for restaurants, cafes and other venues.
The guide consists of seven fact sheets that feature information on delivery companies including Menulog, Deliveroo and Uber Eats.
Topics covered include opportunities and considerations for food and beverage retailers, financial information and key statistics on the delivery industry.
Supplementary fact sheets include a comparison of online food delivery providers, an overview of dark kitchens and advice on how to make the most out of an online listing.
“Online delivery is one of the biggest topics of conversation both within our member network and the food and beverage industry generally,” says R&CA CEO Juliana Payne.
“We’ve worked closely with key stakeholders, including restaurants, customers and our corporate partners to create a consolidated resource that we believe will be incredibly useful for the restaurant and catering industry.”
The number of Australian businesses using online food delivery services has doubled from 2017 to 2018 according to the 2018 R&CA benchmarking report, with 31.2% of businesses now using delivery services.
