Ordering food online is cheaper than hiring a cook in India, says Ubereats survey

  • UberEats today released a report called Food Moods of India.
  • It said that 48% Indians prefer to dine-in, surpassing the 34% that prefer dining out.
  • Indians also stick to their same food choices as the survey showed that 82% consumers stick to a maximum of 5 restaurants for their food orders.

In the times of Zomato, Swiggy and Ubereats, Indians prefer eating in instead of dining out. The world of convenience has taken over, where food delivery takes prominence over a planned outing.

UberEats, in its latest report called Food Moods of India, said that half of its survey respondents said ordering food is more economical than hiring a cook – which is expensive and tedious.

“With people eating non-home food at least once a week, consumers are increasingly outsourcing their food decisions to technology-enabled life managers like us,” said Bansi Kotecha, Head of Operations, India and SA UberEats.

It also said that 48% Indians prefer to dine-in, surpassing the 34% that prefer to dine out.

The report also said that the top reasons why people order food are – convenience, to break the monotony, celebrate a special occasion and catch up with friends/family/colleagues.

Moreover, Indians also stick to their same food choices. The survey showed that 82% consumers stick to a maximum of five restaurants for their orders. With most respondents also ordering food at home instead of offices etc.

The Indians ‘eating out’ habit has been a trend through the past few years. In their earlier reports, Zomato and Swiggy too have shown similar results.

“With findings suggesting that consumers make choices based on the taste profile and offers available, this report furthers our resolve to continue sharing data and insights to help partners innovate and promote efficiency in their operations, as well as provide customers more options to suit their food preferences,” said Kotecha.
