At the end of 2019, Meituan-Dianping recorded close to US$400 million in net profits, with more than half of the company’s revenue coming from food delivery. Seeing as the online food delivery industry is notoriously a loss-making business, this came as quite a surprise. How did Meituan-Dianping succeed, when other players like US counterparts Uber and GrubHub are still struggling? Can other online food delivery players replicate its success?
