“Mobile apps have given new meaning to quick service. These apps become more relevant in the current pandemic where social distancing has become a norm,” Deepa Bhatia, General Manager, YouGov India, said in a statement

YouGov also revealed that faster or timely deliveries and no delivery charges (42 per cent for each) are some of the other steps that restaurants can take to entice customers to order through their mobile apps.
