Just-Eat Canada Reveals Final Medal Standings in GTA Food Take-Out and Delivery Olympics

Thai food wins Gold!

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 5, 2010) -

Attention Food & Lifestyle Writers

Just-Eat Canada has determined that the top three take-out and delivery foods of choice in the GTA during the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games were: Gold, Thai; Silver, Chinese; Bronze, Pizza. Over the course of the Winter Games online orders made through just-eat.ca increased by 35% as people in the GTA found the convenience of online ordering for food take out and delivery.

"We saw a marked increase in online ordering during the 2010 Olympic Games because so many folks were taking in what was happening in Vancouver," says David Power, managing director of Just-Eat. "Canadians were really into watching the Olympics and with the ease of using just-eat.ca people in the GTA were able to take in the Games from the comfort of their homes with no hassle or stress – except for maybe the stress during the hockey games!"

Curiously, online orders for chicken wings increased during the Olympics vaulting that take-out/delivery item into 5th place. Normally wing orders don't hit the top five. Sushi, often a top three item, was the 4th most ordered item on the Just-Eat Canada web site from February 12 to 28, 2010.

The Just-Eat web site is far more than just an ordering portal. It is an interactive venue. Users can share their restaurant reviews, recommend restaurants to friends, suggest additional restaurants for the system, save their favourite meals are re-order with a single click and even collect points applicable to their orders. And with credit card security ensured they don't have to worry about having cash on hand.

The Just-Eat Canada web site is located at www.just-eat.ca.
