America’s largest food delivery platform has revealed the stats behind the take-outs – and vegan food is one of the country’s growing trends.
Vegan quesadillas, tofu wings, teriyaki quinoa bowl, samosa chaats and vegan calzone top the list of the most popular plant-based orders according to food delivery service Grubhub.
Grubhub CMO, Barbara Martin Coppola, said: “We are delighted that our diners are expanding their tastes beyond traditional takeout staples to try out this year’s trendiest dishes from the comfort of their home or office.”
Data analysts looked at foods that climbed in popularity, using order data from January 1 to June 30, 2017. In addition, analysts looked at spikes in popularity for dishes that were expected to rise in popularity, according to culinary reports published at the end of last year.
There was a 19 per cent increase in the number of vegan dishes ordered in that timeframe.
Coppola added: “Grubhub aims to be the one place for everyone’s tastes – so it’s amazing to see that diners are embracing such a variety of foods, whether they’re ordering a nutritious bowl, vegan cuisine or barbecue.”
Grubhub has previously named plant-based as one of 2016’s hottest food trends.
