I am new brand in a pretty competitive market, 3rd Party has taken over and fighting with uber/doordash over delivery drivers is wearing me down. Currently we pay 8$/hr plus tips driver usually makes about 15-20$ an hour and helps out with dishes, phones and boxes. I have had to take on a LOT of delivery shifts the past few months and 60+ hours of delivering means i cant work on growing the restaurant. With what im spending on job postings and headaches i have been looking for other options. 1) Get a delivery car (Scion iQ) great gas mileage, simple mechanics, low price. -Thinking 6/hr + Tips (I pay GAS/MAIT/INS) -will get to utilize my in house staff many of which arent at full time consistently -wider applicant pool (we are a college town - higher risk i know) -Get to Wrap - Good Visibility for marketing. 2) Change pay structure. -we are a high volume/low ticket size restaurant. meaning tips are mostly 1-3$ but very clustered and townies tip much higher generally. - Adding a 1$ per delivery would cost me 40-80$ more per day so hourly would have to drop significantly. 3) Go full 3rd Party - I HATE 3rd party but there are sooooo many uber/doordash drivers that are taking 90% of the driver market and it is the way of the future so is fighting it worth the effort? I have Decent rates. Doordash - 23% Grubhub 25% Uber -23% -we are open later than Grubhub and uber deliver so that would mean MAJOR repercussions not really considering this option much but throwing it out there. Please comment any experiences or advice!
