Philadelphia, PA - The coronavirus resulted in subsequent lockdowns, keeping millions of people at home throughout the U.S., which had unique effects on regional food delivery in various cities throughout the nation.
Philadelphia's Takeout and Delivery Food Industry Shift
The Halal Guys began as a lone food cart on the streets of Manhattan in 1990. In 2014, the brand started franchising and currently operates more than 90 restaurants worldwide, with 80+ locations located throughout the United States, and this includes 3 in Philadelphia.
As guidelines and expectations continue to adjust in Philly, The Halal Guys’ shift to a takeout/deliver model is an example of how local food delivery has already been influenced in different parts of the U.S. as a result of COVID-19.
One example is, Southern regions are actually ordering delivery and takeout more frequently than the pre-pandemic period. However, people in large metropolitan areas like New York and L.A. leaned into delivery and third-party providers, such as Grubhub and UberEats, a while ago.
These markets have also seen the birth of the ghost kitchen approach, and resilient fans have even increased the frequency of their delivery and takeout orders to support their favorite restaurants during these trying times. As Philadelphia now moves into Post-COVID-19, one thing is for sure is that the food industry will be forever changed.
