A quick visit to a site and the meal is delivered in minutes. It is a practice that millions of French people have adopted in recent years. However, not all sites are created equal. Some are much better than others.
Deliveroo is a fully British home delivery company, founded in 2013. But, it is present in European countries such as Germany, France and Spain. It is one of the most successful meal delivery companies around.
Deliveroo's number is one of its greatest assets, because it is constantly accessible. Of course, its mobile application is also useful since it allows you to order dinner in just a few clicks. We can also cite its partner restaurants which are more than 6,000, knowing that in 2017, they were around this figure.
Another strong point of Deliveroo is its packaging which is quite special. It is impact resistant and retains heat very well thanks to its isothermal design.
Free delivery is available, but up to an order going to more than 200 euros in the northern departments and more than 250 euros in the southern departments of France.
Everyone knows the commercial with rapper Snoop Dog. Just Eat is undoubtedly in pole position when it comes to numbers. With 20 years of experience, it is the first site that has been able to establish partnership agreements with nearly 5,500 restaurants.
Just Eat has a long history, because you should know that the meal delivery business was previously known as Allo Resto, which was launched in 1998. In 2010, the company took the opportunity to develop an application ordering online.
Just Eat meets all the needs in terms of tastes and specialties. Its customers benefit from an application giving them access to thousands of restaurants as varied as the menus available.
As the name suggests, Uber Eats is the home food delivery company of Garrett Camp and Travis Kalanick, the creators and founders of Uber.
In its early days, Uber Eats was still a sub-app within the Uber app. But, it wasn't until 2015 that the company launched its own app. The latter appeared in France for the first time in 2016. In 2019, millions of French people from 95 cities use it.
An advantage of Uber Eats is its application which offers monitoring of the delivery status and access to the contact details of the delivery person.
If the previous companies are mainly foreign, Frichti is for its part a French meal delivery service, and very popular what is more. It was created in 2015 by Quentin Vacher and Julia Bijaoui.
On his site, there are only ready meals from restaurants in the region where the order is made. They are exclusively concocted from fresh and seasonal products. Another strong point of Frichti is the possibility given to the customer to compose his own dish, but only on specific orders.
Frichti is a ready-meals delivery service that offers an offer for businesses: canteen 2.0. He is able to take bulk orders and deliver them at lunchtime. On the price side, a small discount of 10% is often applied to the overall price.
