When you’ve had a long day at work or at home, it can be exhausting to think about buying groceries, cooking dinner, and then cleaning up afterward.
It’s so much easier to just call up your favorite delivery place and order something. And now, with all the food delivery apps out there, you don’t even have to talk to someone on the phone! You simply click a few buttons on your smartphone.
A study done by US Foods recently looked into food app trends to find out more about how people deliver food nowadays. According to the study, “The average person has two food delivery apps and uses them 3x per month.”
All of the statistics are really interesting, but there’s one number that’s particularly fascinating — and disgusting! Apparently 28% of the delivery drivers studied admitted to having tasted the customers’ food before delivering it. Ew! How gross is that?
That means that there’s more than a one in four chance that your delivery driver has tried your food! While taking a french fry from time to time isn’t a huge deal, taking a sip of someone’s milkshake or a bite of their sandwich is really problematic.
Although this seems like it’s all bad news, there is one positive: Maybe it’ll encourage you to cook from home more often! Or maybe it’ll encourage you to just go pick up the food yourself.
