As we close out the year, we took a look at what trends we expect to see this Holiday season and
beyond. More of what’s to come in 2024:

Holiday Hosting, Delivered: This year, we saw more consumers ordering delivery for their
guests while hosting. With the holidays upon us and as we move into the new year, we
expect more consumers will use delivery for their hosting needs – whether it’s to get the
secret ingredient for that famous family recipe or festive decor to perfect their holiday

More Business and Pleasure: “Bleisure” travel is on the rise and next year we predict
more people will be combining their business travel with personal leisure, leading to
extended stays and more opportunities to explore.

Living Like a Local: With the increase of “slow travel,” more consumers are emphasizing
connection with local people and culture vs. more traditional tourist behaviors. As travel
season approaches, we anticipate seeing more people lean into making their vacation
destinations feel more like home, with an increase in activities like cooking while

Never Missing a Moment: The power of fandoms reigned supreme this year. From sports,
music, film releases and more, consumers leaned into the things they loved. This year, we
saw an uptick in orders for items like jerseys after big team wins and accessories for
lovers of one iconic doll’s debut on the big screen this summer. We expect this trend to
continue, with consumers using on-demand delivery to get everything they need to
showcase team pride, send bragging rights, or build connections during cultural

Late Night Snacking: with the rise of trends like girl dinner this year, 2024 will be the year
of late night snacking, with more consumers ordering delivery for food during late night
hours. We’ve seen a 36% year-over-year increase in late night DoorDash orders** (orders
between midnight – 5am.)
