Net-based food delivery service thriving in China

Chinese consumers are quickly embracing the convenience of home-delivered food offered by three major players in a growing market.

SHANGHAI -- Bao Chunyang tends to order lunch using food delivery apps and sometimes has dinner delivered to her doorstep, especially on cold winter days. Bao, a 27-year-old employee at a Japanese company in Dalian, Liaoning Province, normally uses the popular app Ele.me, which allows users to choose from a wide range of snacks and fast foods, such as noodles. When traveling, she looks for restaurants via the food app Meituan Waimai.

There are three dominant players in China's food delivery app market: Ele.me, Meituan Waimai and Baidu Waimai.
