For Food Delivery, Covid-19 Was a Sugar High

After monster surges in use over the past 12 months because of the pandemic, food-delivery companies are doubling down. For example, DoorDash, DASH -7.60% which said its revenue grew by a quarterly average of 220% year over year in 2020, has been adding delivery for groceries and convenience goods. And the Uber Technologies UBER -6.01% platform Uber Eats has bolstered its profile with grocery delivery through Cornershop in addition to its recent acquisitions of its food-delivery competitor Postmates and the alcohol-delivery platform Drizly.
