How Does Your College Rank For Delivery Food?
Which schools have the best tippers, the most polite customers, and the highest rollers?
Website Spoon University and food delivery service GrubHub got together and analyzed over 1 million delivery orders to college campuses. To find the sample, they looked at orders placed in the ZIP of a campus where the user had a ".edu" email address. Then, they ranked campuses based on what time of day they ordered, what types of cuisine they ordered, and if they included health notes like "hold the mayo" or polite ones like "please" and "thank you".
Note: these rankings are based only on orders through GrubHub, but not the Dominos pizza tracker app, or you know, actually calling up the place on the phone.
Most caffeinated (percent of orders containing coffee or energy drinks):
Late night orders (after 10pm):
Most different types of ethnic cuisine ordered:
Most polite (orders include a note or special instructions with the term "please" or "thank you"):
Most expensive orders, compared to the college campuses average:
A previous version of this post did not clarify that these rankings were was a joint effort between GrubHub and Spoon University.
Additionally, the previous version stated that Seamless was a separate company from GrubHub. The two companies merged in 2013.
