Many restaurants have a love-hate relationship with national third-party delivery services, who often charge unreasonably high commissions to restaurants that rely on them to deliver food to customers. In this challenging time, restaurants are actively searching for a delivery partner, as maintaining their own delivery system is unrealistic financially and logistically. National delivery apps help with that, but at what cost?
For many restaurants that partner with national services such as Seamless and Postmates, problems such as long wait times or missing orders inevitably occur in addition to financial setbacks from the 30 percent commission and fees charged by delivery apps. To make matters worse, many national apps add restaurants to their platforms without owners’ consent and refuse to remove them when asked.
