App penetration in the food space has soared, with Domino’s app orders accounting for 75.2% of all online orders, an increase of 24.8 percentage points from Q2 2022.
More recently, the group announced a partnership with Uber Eats and Postmates that will allow for even greater penetration of its food delivery services.
Food delivery app resurgence
Domino’s has certainly benefitted from a bit of a revival of food delivery app installs in 2023 after they dipped in the previous years just as most countries relaxed pandemic rules and people returned to eating outside.
A comparison between the average installs in 2022 and those from January to April 2023 reveals a notable increase of 12%.
Data from app experts Adjust also shows that food delivery app installations skyrocket by 25% on Saturdays. This pattern mirrors the trend observed in 2022 when Saturday app installs were 26% higher than on Mondays.

When it comes to the number of sessions, weekends also reign supreme, while Mondays lag behind. In 2023 Saturday sessions were 13.7% higher than the Monday averages for the same period.
Furthermore, during Q1 2023, Saturday sessions exceeded the overall average by an impressive 16%.
