Delivery and takeout meals are beyond popular for college students. As students get deeper into the semester they also tend to get tired of the on campus dining options and begin to rely on local restaurants for meals. With the limited number of delivery options, going out to eat can start getting time consuming.
GrubHub makes ordering from local restaurants easier than ever before. It allows you to order from their website and they pick it up form the restaurant and bring the food straight to your location. Now you don’t have to spend your time waiting in the Chipotle line, and can spend more time doing what you need to do while you wait for your order to be delivered to your dorm.
GrubHub has recently done a study on all of their orders coming from .edu email addresses and tracked what schools were most likely to order what types of foods. We were sent this information from Spoon University, who’s been partnering with GrubHub to take on the college food scene. Is GrubHub popular on your campus and wondering if your school made the list? Keep reading to find out.
