India: Inspired by SeamlessWeb.com, four IIT-Delhi students and alumni have started a site called Foodiebay.com, listing more than 1200 restaurants across a variety of cuisines and neighborhoods. You cannot yet order food for delivery on the site, but you can do just about everything else.
China: Pizza delivery has simply taken off in China. A relatively new concept in the country, it has been expanding rapidly as Chinese workers have become busier and the Chinese public has become more consumer-oriented. The main forces in the market (Pizza Hut, Domino’s, Papa John’s) are very familiar to American diners, and once they establish a delivery culture, there’s no telling how large the market could become in the world’s most populous nation.
Have any other information about the growth of the delivery and take out markets around the world? Let us know in the comments section!
