Once you factor in the delivery fees, service fees and tips, plus the generally higher price of food due to inflation, delivery is down. Chipotle, Kava and Sweet Green have all reported significant declines in delivery sales. We don't have any number for Supermarkets, except one from Instacart. In their filing, they said that the growth of its core delivery business slowed in the first half of 2023. So they're even doing it. Chipotle's delivery decreased almost 16 percent.
