During COVID-19, delivery and take-out options have surged. What a great way to access food from amazing local restaurants while supporting their business! Win-win, right? Wrong. Did you know that these delivery apps charge restaurants a commission fee (anywhere between 10-30% of the entire bill) for every order? And not just for delivery orders — pick up orders, too! Restaurants are hurting because they’ve lost their in-house diners, and the struggle to keep their doors open has meant needing access to more customers — customers using delivery apps.
While delivery is great to order food from restaurants that are not close by, choosing to order take out via a delivery app has become almost second-nature. If the restaurant has their menu on the app, why search online for it? Why pick up the phone to call it? Because it’s costing the restaurant money that they cannot afford to pay right now. So while it may not be very convenient, ordering from your favourite restaurant’s website using a platform much like that of a delivery app (with no commission fees for restaurants) is the best thing to do to support them.
