Based on the data provided by Grab, the top three reasons why people opted to have food delivered are:

  • 1. To satisfy cravings for food they can't cook.
  • 2. There's no time to cook.
  • 3. There's no need to worry about traffic and parking.

According to the report, pizza, cakes, and pasta are some of the favorite meals that consumers are not able to cook at home. The common reasons are because these food are time-consuming, they lack the necessary equipment at home (like an oven for pizza!), and it's difficult to cook at home.

Grab says pizza was searched for more than 6,000,000 (yes, six million!) times on GrabFood in 2020 alone! Since cake is also part of the list, it only makes sense that orders for cake in 2020 increased by 2.6x compared to 2019.
