The Digital Age of Foodadmin
In the US, food is a large part of our economy, whether it is in the form of large-scale farming, a simple meal out, or any of the transportation roles in between. It is estimated that about 10% of American jobs and, often, an even larger percentage of household budgets can also be attributed to the food industry. Although the pandemic has caused this sector to face short-term losses, it has also resulted in the growth of the food delivery industry. Moreover, lockdowns were an especially formative factor in the digitalization of food service. Now, with the option to virtually order from anywhere, it is important to prioritize the support of small, local businesses. Additionally, this outlook is noteworthy given concerns such as affordability and quality associated with food delivery, as family-owned restaurants often have the most authentic and fresh foods.
