Food delivery app fees too high? Deliver with LuckyToGo
No question, COVID-19 has had a major impact on the restaurant industry. People across Canada are social distancing and, as a result, cannot visit local restaurants. Restaurants are turning to food delivery as their only way to stay in business.
Thanks to restaurants and delivery services like LuckyToGo in British Columbia, people can order food online and have it delivered right to their door.
Unfortunately, some delivery companies are taking advantage of the pandemic as a chance to profit. These include many popular cab riding and food/grocery delivery services. These companies are charging commission in the range of 20 to 30 percent. These rates make it nearly impossible for local restaurants to earn a healthy profit.
Many restaurants in Victoria and other parts of British Columbia are struggling to stay in business because of COVID-19. To add insult to injury, they are losing their profits to the delivery companies. They know they have to provide delivery online but feel crippled by the fees.
So, what’s the solution?
Well, restaurants really only have two options:
- either start delivering food on their own or
- find a delivery partner with lower commission rates.
Option 1: Set up your own delivery service
Setting up your own food delivery network is time-consuming and expensive, especially for small businesses. You have to hire drivers, train them, and arrange all equipment like delivery bags. This is often more expensive than using a delivery service, even after paying the high commission rates.
Hiring during a pandemic is also uniquely challenging. Training new staff is even more difficult.
So, what about finding a food delivery service with low commission? That’s where Lucky To Go comes in.
Option 2: Use a Low-Commission Food Delivery Service
Lucky to Go is British Columbia’s fastest-growing food/grocery delivery service with the lowest commission rates.
LuckyToGo is a British Columbia based ride-hailing company that also provides food & grocery delivery services.
LuckyToGo is supporting local businesses by offering delivery services with lower commission rates to restaurants and local grocery stores in Greater Victoria and throughout BC to help them retain more profits.
At LuckyToGo, we strive to give the best-quality delivery experience to our partner restaurants, grocery stores as well as our riders/drivers, which is why we have kept our commission fees low. More than earning money, we care about offering high-quality delivery services to the customers on behalf of restaurants and retailers in the area in these troubled times.
Our restaurant commission fees range from 13-15% for every order. This is 10 to 20% less than what other delivery companies are charging their restaurant partners. We are also not charging a fee from our drivers and delivery partners, which means the entire delivery fee goes to them.
By partnering with LuckyToGo, you can lower the delivery fees you have to pay for each order and greatly increase your profits. We invite all restaurants across British Columbia to partner with us for a seamless food and grocery delivery experience.
