Nailing takeaway sales requires kitchens to be on point and the process from order to delivery to be absolutely seamless – so which of the UK’s biggest chains are best at ensuring their food lives up to expectations?
Online review platform Psydro claims to have found the answer after using online customer review data to compile a list of the UK’s “favourite and most trusted” takeaway chains.
Analysing both external and internal review data, the company concluded that Five Guys was the highest rated, chain scoring an average of 4.35 out of five stars across the country.
Wagamama and Nando’s came second and third, with scores of 4.32 and 4.29 respectively, while Domino’s, in 10th place, achieved 3.46.
Psydro said there were three factors behind the popularity of Five Guys’ offer: “Firstly, the large portions and the fresh ingredients will leave you full and satisfied, getting great value for the size of the meals you order.
“Secondly, burgers from Five Guys are fully customizable, offering 15 different toppings and an endless combination of add-ons. So, whatever you’re in the mood for, Five Guys will have something to fulfil your cravings. Finally, every burger is cooked to order, making this company more of a casual fast food chain than a real fast food restaurant.”
Delving into Google search data, Psydro discovered that the number of searches for ‘takeaways near me’ has doubled since pre-Covid-19 last March, with searches peaking at the beginning of the third lockdown in the New Year.
It also found that the UK tops the list of countries searching for ‘McDonald’s takeaway’, ‘Burger King takeaway’ and ‘Domino’s takeaway’.
