Here Are Some Ontario Ordering Trends On SkipTheDishes

SkipTheDishes has released their end of year report, looking at the ordering trends of Ontarians and Canadians alike.

In 2020, the top three items ordered through SkipTheDishes in Ontario were Asian dishes, burgers and pizza. And the most popular cuisines were American/Canadian (Scarborough), Italian (Niagara Falls) and Chinese (Sudbury).

October 9, 2020 a Toronto resident ordered the most expensive order recorded in Ontario coming in at a whopping $779.90! That order included 30 salads, 12 orders of pad thai and 10 orders of red curry!

Ontarians capitalized on the addition of convenience items on the Skip network in 2020. Their most ordered items were slushies, taquitos and fountain drinks. But while some munched on sugary treats, others chose more specific dishes as Ontario ranked first for the province with the most orders of halal food (followed by Quebec and the Maritimes), second for kosher food (behind Alberta and followed by Saskatchewan) and third for organic food (behind B.C. and Alberta).

Ontario trends include:

  • 743 is the number of orders placed by the most frequent orderer in Ontario
  • The fastest growing segment of new users were those above the age of 65
  • Late night orders grew by 38%
  • Canadians are more willing to try something new as roughly half of users who open the app don’t know what they’re going to order
  • And 81% of customers have ordered from a restaurant that they have never been to in person
  • Patio season has its limits, and that limit for most Canadians is 12ºC
