TORONTO, /CNW/ – As Canada’s homegrown delivery app, SkipTheDishes delivered more of what Canadians wanted this year – and the data did not disappoint! Skip has just released their 2023 order trends, which unpacks the most popular items, biggest spenders and most notable stats of the year – did you know Ontarians are in their pickle era, and Albertans went crazy for bubble tea?

Here’s a sneak peek at what Skip customers across the country have been loving in 2023:

  • The most expensive order was $1,259.71 in Quebec, which included 55 sandwiches, 3 pizzas and – in true Canadian style – 7 orders of poutine
  • Canadians love Butter Chicken – the dish was crowned the top ordered food item this year across the country, followed by Garlic Naan
  • As a nation of self-confessed snackers, chips were the most ordered groceries, topping the list ahead of milk, bread and eggs!
  • Is Ontario in its pickle era? Playing pickleball, hosting its first ever Pickle Festival, and probably also eating them right out the jar, pickles have been a big dill in Ontario this year! So, it makes perfect sense that Ontarians ordered more pickles than any other province in 2023
  • Something was bubbling in Alberta, as they ordered more Bubble Tea than all other provinces combined

“Releasing our annual ordering trends is one of our favorite times of the year! As a Canadian brand, we love digging deeper into the ordering habits of our communities across the country, and this year did not disappoint,” said Melanie Fatouros-Richardson, Vice President, Communications & Government Relations at SkipTheDishes. “In 2023, Canadians took advantage of the growing categories available on Skip, and we’re proud to serve customers  coast to coast and save them time by bringing them more of what they love, right to their doorstep.”
