Pandemic has shattered the global economies and local restaurants and food businesses are no exception. COVID-19 has impacted the buying behaviors of the consumers and instead of dine-in, most of the food items are ordered via food delivery apps. When consumers order food via 3rd party apps like Uber Eats, Doordash, and other services, they don’t usually interact with the restaurant. The order is placed via the food delivery app and the delivery boy will pick up the food from the said restaurant and deliver it to the consumer.
Due to the pandemic and increased orders, food delivery apps are constantly failing to meet the delivery deadline. When the users don’t receive their food in the given time, they end up leaving negative reviews for the restaurant.
How Food Delivery Services are Hurting Restaurants?
On the famous review site, Yelp, many users are seen complaining about the poor delivery service of the restaurant. In reality, the delay is mostly caused by the delivery service end. Restaurants and food businesses have no control over these incidents still, negative reviews hurt their business.
Food business owners have requested Yelp to remove such negative reviews where the restaurants had no fault or control over the consumer’s experience. The food delivery services like Uber Eats and Doordash are selected by the consumers so whether they deliver in time or delay the order, restaurants have no control over the situation.
