UberEats, Deliveroo, Menulog and restaurants
UberEats, Menulog and Deliveroo offer ways to extend the client base for restaurants. Food is picked up to order and delivered. The service is straightforward, but labour intensive. And the restaurant pays up to 35% for the service.
Most restaurants can’t afford to employ a delivery person themselves so a low cost, reliable delivery service can be ideal. The only problem is that a three-way struggle for profit is inevitable between the restaurant, customer and Uber, Menulog or Deliveroo.
And the contractual relationship between restaurant and delivery service is also in dispute. As well as low pay and poor work conditions for drivers.
