Shawn Stevens In The Morning

Weekdays 5 a.m. - 10 a.m.

Food delivery services are putting the ‘app’ in appetite.

If you’re like me, sitting down to eat at a fast food restaurant has become a thing of the past. Say ‘Hola’ to food delivery services.

First, it was the convenience of the drive thru which kept me in my car.

Now, boosted by the lockdowns during the pandemic and the evolution of cool apps, food delivery services have become our preferred choice for satisfying our fast food cravings.

Food delivery is becoming a huge business.

According to McKinsey & Company, Ordering in: The rapid evolution of food delivery, food delivery has become a global market worth more than $150 billion, having more than tripled since 2017.

How often do you use food delivery services like Grubhub, Doordash or Ubereats?

We knew it was only a matter of time before restaurant owners figured out a better way to do fast food.

In a recent article in the Review Journal, we learned that Las Vegas based Diversified Restaurant Group has introduced the first Taco Bell  Go Mobile to Nevada.

“Go Mobile is all about making it more efficient for the consumer,” said Diversified Restaurant Group President SG Elison, who estimates that more than 50% of their orders could come from delivery apps in the next few years.

The new restaurant model caters to delivery drivers and mobile orders and features two drive-thru lanes, one designated for delivery apps only and no indoor dining.

It’s my opinion, but I think this will become the hot new trend in fast food restaurants and I’m thrilled to see that Las Vegas is on the cutting edge.

Designed to take the load off of surrounding Taco Bell locations, the Go Mobile pilot location will serve as a designated pick-up location for a majority of the delivery orders.

The newly opened Taco Bell Go Mobile location is in North Las Vegas on Craig Road across from Cannery Casino and is one, of only a dozen in the nation, and the first and only in Nevada.

Happy ordering. Live más!
