The on-demand business model has exploded in the past year or so, indicating that speed and convenience are highly valued among consumers. Many of these services are tied to a mobile app, which heightens the convenience factor while also offering company-specific insights.

The majority of on-demand business ventures are delivery services, especially in the food industry. This cuts down on wait times for hungry customers, which is essential when dealing with temperature-sensitive orders like Gelato Messina's ice cream or Chai Point's tea. So many companies are looking to offer delivery, that delivery-specific software as a service (SaaS) startups like Bringg are now a thing.

Of course, the on-demand business concept goes beyond food and drink to a number of necessary and nice products. This includes on-demand fuel, nursing and even mom rental services.
