This year, Swiggy has titled its report The World from Home (WFH) edition with the world being at home for most part of the year due to the pandemic. Swiggy says it delivered five times as many orders to ‘Home’ addresses compared to ‘Work’ addresses between January and March. That number rose to nine times as many Home orders versus Work orders in April and May.

The pandemic also meant all celebrations had to be done indoors, thus increasing the number of orders for birthday cakes. 6,56,174 birthday cakes were delivered post lockdown.
Bengaluru emerged as the top city in terms of ordering food in 2020. It was also the city that gave delivery executives the most generous tips. A Bengaluru user, Swiggy says, gave a Rs 5000 tip to a delivery executive. Bengaluru users also seem to love chocolate with one person ordering 391 units of chocolates on Swiggy Instamart.

Bengaluru was followed by Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad and Delhi.

Chennai also recorded Swiggy’s earliest and latest late-night order with one customer ordering in chicken noodles at 5 am in March, while another customer ordered cheese fries at 4:59am in February.
