Uber on Monday acquired food delivery app Postmates in a $2.65 billion all-stock deal, the ride-hailing giant confirmed, creating more competition in what has become the "food delivery war." Just Eat Takeaway acquired GrubHub for $7.8 billion in June.
Here are the most popular food delivery apps, based on shares of monthly sales, according to June data from analysis company Second Measure:
- DoorDash (44 percent)
- GrubHub (23 percent)
- Uber Eats (23 percent, though Second Measure notes that some sales "indistinguishable from Uber rides, especially in May-August 2019)
- Postmates (8 percent)
- Other (2 percent)
GrubHub dominated sales in New York City and Boston; DoorDash dominated sales in Dallas, Houston, Philadelphia and San Fransisco; Uber Eats dominated sales in Miami; and Postmates surpassed all other services Los Angeles, according to Second Measure.
