110,000 INDEPENDENT RESTAURANTS CLOSED IN 2020 ALONE.
We must make a change to save our local restaurant communities.
WHAT FOOD DELIVERY APPS DON'T WANT YOU TO KNOW:
- THEY TAKE A HUGE BITE OUT OF RESTAURANTS' PROFITS FOR EACH ORDER THEY DELIVER.
Restaurants make an average of 4-8% in profit, and after paying exorbitant commission rates and fees to a third-party delivery app-up to 30 percent!—they often lose money.
- $$ MOVES OUTSIDE OF LOCAL ECONOMY
The money that third-party delivery funnels away from local economies benefits national corporations and their stockholders, and no one else. Why do we trust billion-dollar tech companies with the survival of our local businesses?
- THEY DON'T PAY LIVING WAGES TO THEIR DRIVERS
Delivery drivers for the big three delivery platforms make an average of only $4-8/hr, and despite skimping on labor costs and milking restaurants dry, these companies still fail to make a profit, year after year.
- THEY COLLECT AND ABUSE YOUR CUSTOMER DATA TO SET UP "GHOST KITCHENS"
Ghost Kitchens are fake restaurants created by outside marketing departments that pretend to be local so they can siphon even more money away from small businesses.
