“Peckish” is a delightfully British word with a sort of Monty Python-esque quality. It’s silly-sounding slang, yet totally translates into the more universal term “hungry.”

That brings us straight to the latest PYMNTS Provider Ranking of Aggregator Apps, fresh from the Mobile Provider Ranking R.V. & Lab, whose last known position can’t be disclosed for security reasons. OK, fine. We forgot where it’s parked. Happy now?

Before the parking incident we crunched the numbers, so it’s ready to go regardless.

And for this edition of the Aggregator ranking, we’ve got a few things to talk about.

The Top 5

To dispense with the easy part, players at the very top of this ranking do not surrender their positions easily. It starts, as usual, with DoorDash at No. 1. They just did a same-day delivery deal with Bed Bath & Beyond that’s surely pleasing to throngs of homemakers.

At No. 2 it’s still Uber Eats, which saw Q1 2021 revenues skyrocket.

If little has changed since last cycle then the Deliveroo app would be at No. 3 — and so it is. In April the platform expanded its deal with U.K. grocer Sainsbury’s, moving up from 10 stores to 100 involved in a trial arrangement under a new two-year deal.

Grubhub sticks at No. 4 for another cycle, and they have a close ally joining them in the rarified air up there. The Just Eat app rises one chart position to enter the Top 5 at No. 5 (nicely done). Grubhub stockholders approved the pending acquisition by Just Eat in early June.

The Top 10

Indefatigable grocery app Instacart gets pushed down a spot to No. 6 this cycle. The online grocer said in June that it’s moving to replace gig shoppers with automation in an effort to cut costs and strengthen its supermarket relationships.

Zomato is just fine where it is, at No. 7 yet again. The food delivery platform is going public in India with an estimated $1.1 billion initial public offering.

Meanwhile, we find the Glovo on-demand courier service app firm at No. 8 (no movement there), having recently announced that it is buying Delivery Hero’s Balkans operation.

Now, two exciting entries at the tail end of this ranking make for a tale worth telling.

New at No. 9 is Swiggy, the India-based online delivery platform app in which SoftBank Vision Fund is investing $450 million. Wonder if they think it has a future? Welcome to the Top 10.

Today’s grade finale comes courtesy of a familiar name returning to the Top 10, after a brief absence. It’s Canada’s SkipTheDishes app, reappearing at No. 10 this cycle.

That does it for this edition of PYMNTS Provider Ranking of Aggregator Apps. Let’s order.
