Developing one’s own restaurant delivery app has become popular among restaurant owners. But why create your own restaurant food delivery app with Uber Eats, Grubhub, and DoorDash in the market?
The number one reason is that with a third-party food ordering app, the commission can be as high as 25–30% (for Uber Eats). DoorDash charges 10–25%, while Grubhub takes 5–15%. This is why many restaurants choose to make a food delivery app and set up an in-house delivery team rather than pay a third party.
The number two reason is the absence of third-party delivery options. Even if a restaurant owner is ready to work with big players like Uber Eats, they may not provide service in the area.
The number three reason is that third-party delivery companies are often overloaded with orders, causing delays. Thus, customers can become dissatisfied and restaurants can start losing regular guests.
To satisfy customers, keep up with competitors, improve delivery speed, and ensure customer loyalty, restaurant owners choose to develop their own food delivery services.
