Explore Partnering With Delivery Apps

Your bakery or restaurant may be in the process of trying to adapt to take-out, curbside pickup, and delivery only during the coronavirus outbreak. One way to increase your delivery presence is to partner with popular delivery apps to help execute. This is already popular with many restaurants.

Advantages of Partnering With Delivery Apps

Some advantages of partnering with delivery apps include:

  • An increased presence – your shop and products are able to get in front of more potential cusomters
  • Flexible delivery schedules. Through your partnership with the delivery app, you will not need to maintain on-staff delivery drivers. Orders can be picked up on-demand as needed.
  • Enables online ordering

How Much Does It Cost?

The answer here is a bit gray. During our online research, we found most food establishments were quoted as paying service fees between 20% – 30% of the customer’s bill. However, this is very generalized. We recommend that you connect directly with one of the delivery app’s sales representatives for more precise information.

Of the three apps (DoorDash, GrubHub, and Uber Eats) that we reached out to regarding pricing, all recommended speaking with a sales representative to obtain specific pricing information as it relates to your unique food operation.

How Many Services Can I Partner With?

Generally speaking, we recommend selecting one service and integrating that into your operations successfully before considering an additional partnership. It’s also worth noting that partnering exclusively with a particular service may also help you negotiate lower service fees.

What Delivery Apps Are Available?

Currently, there are three major players within the online, app-based delivery field, with more emerging. These include DoorDash, GrubHub, and Uber Eats. See the links below for information on how you can partner with each individual service.
