lead the way:

“This data shows a unique cross-section of classic delivery items such
as sandwiches, hot dogs and wings as well as some less expected items
like arroz con pollo, hibachi and antipasto,” said Craig Key, Head of
Growth for Waitr. “Summer is a time where people are outdoors and
enjoying foods that fit their lifestyles. So whether you are looking for
a delicious milkshake or a fresh order of poke, at Bite Squad our goal
is to deliver these items fast and fresh, wherever you are.”

The data did find that not all menu items grow in popularity with warmer
weather. During summer months, selections such as soup, pad Thai and egg
rolls see a decrease in delivery interest as guests turn to popular cold
food and drink items to satisfy their cravings.

*To forecast foods that will be popular in summer 2019, Bite Squad
analyzed orders over the past two summer seasons from June 1 – August
31. The company identified dishes with the highest positive rate of
change in order volume between summer 2017 and summer 2018. That rate of
change was used to predict which dishes will continue to rise in summer
