Food apps in Chicago will soon show the premium you pay for delivery

The policy comes as restaurants across the US and much of the world struggle to stay in business. In most instances, even depending on deliveries to offset not being able to serve diners in their own spaces, some restaurants have closed permanently.

Unsurprisingly, the companies the policy targets aren’t fans. “We support policy and legislation that help restaurants serve their communities, and a path to reopening those businesses must be the focus,” a Grubhub spokesperson told NBC Chicago. “These arbitrary disclosure rules will do exactly the opposite of their intent by causing confusion to consumers.”

The city, however, sees it as a way to make the entire delivery process more transparent. “By providing customers with more transparency when they use these delivery services, we can further ensure not only fair business practices for our restaurants but also maintain the innovation that is essential to this industry,” said Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot.

In their defense, both Grubhub and DoorDash lowered their restaurant fees shortly after the coronavirus pandemic began. In Grubhub’s case, it even went so far as to waive fees for independent businesses. They also already provide a breakdown of the fees you pay as a customer. Of course, having more access to information can never hurt consumers, and it will be interesting to see if other cities adopt similar policies.
