Just-Eat.co.uk, the UK’s leading online takeaway portal have announced a 69.5% increase in sales during the last six months compared to the previous six months, proving that the Credit Crunch is not affecting the takeaway food industry.

Many industries have been affected by the downturn in the economy, but sales statistics released by international online takeaway website www.Just-Eat.co.uk have shown that the takeaway industry is still thriving as the public would prefer to order a takeaway rather than dine out, saving themselves money on drinks, taxis and service charges.

Statistics from quarters 2 and 3 from this year; during which time the Credit Crunch has really taken a toll on the economy suggest that the British public are still happy to purchase food from their local restaurants.

The company has released statistics showing that the last 6 months have produced a 69.5% increase in sales when compared to the 6 months previously, to the point where Just-Eat.co.uk is now processing thousands of orders per month for its customers online. Record orders over the weekends have resulted in hundreds of new customers at Just-Eat.co.uk as the popular online food ordering web site becomes the first point of call online to order hot food delivered to your door from more than 1660 delivery restaurants nationwide.

Ash Ali, Marketing Manager of Just-Eat.co.uk said,

“In a time when the media report doom and gloom across many different sectors, we are able to report a significant rise in orders. Talks with many of our partnered restaurants convey a similar picture, where they have stated that they have in fact seen a rise in takeaway requests in the last 6 months, with less sit-in customers and much less drinks spend.

“The reason for this is that people are more likely to order takeaway food to their home, than going out to expensive restaurants, and is possibly related to the fact that restaurants have kept their prices consistent with the prices of their food inflation in the six month period before the Credit Crunch really took hold. It seems more people are now staying in than going out.”

www.Just-Eat.co.uk provides a quick and convenient service supplying customers with a large directory of varied restaurants and eateries in their area, which when selected provide the user with a full, up-to-date menu including prices. The site also gives the customer an estimated delivery time, as well as beverage options.
