Cap on fees for food delivery services
Food businesses across British Columbia have been struggling to stay afloat amidst the economic turmoil caused by the pandemic. Disrupted work hours, safety rules, and health concerns have affected their operational capacity and revenue sources. This financial brunt has reportedly reduced the traffic in small to mid-sized eateries by as much as 90%.
The B.C. government has announced a temporary cap on delivery fees to help restaurants and hospitality businesses struggling with high costs during the pandemic.
Effective Dec. 27, food delivery service providers must not charge a restaurant more than 15 percent of the total cost of the customer order, before taxes, for delivery services.
The announcement was made by the BC’s public health safety minister after a consultation with food delivery companies in an effort to help the struggling hospitality businesses. This action is a part of response plan crafted by the government which also allows restaurants to sell packaged alcohol with meal deliveries

“First of all, there are no hidden fees,” Rana said Friday. “We are a local company. We understand what the restaurants are going through. … They’ve got the temporary 15 per cent right now, but we want to go even lower than that, and we’re only charging eight per cent. It’s unheard of in this industry.”
Lucky to Go already has vehicles on the road in Kelowna after launching as a ride-sharing service last summer, and it has food delivery technology already built into its app. So all it needs now is restaurants to get on board. Rana said the company can afford to offer 8% because its ride sharing profits add to the bottom line as well.
“Restaurants can take advantage of the ridiculously low commission rate,” Rana said, adding eateries will also benefit from free promotions directed at those who use Lucky To Go for ride-sharing.
