“Now that my business is 100% takeout and delivery, I had to bite the bullet and sign up for a third-party delivery service. The fees are ridiculous, but OK, I get it. What I don’t get is why people insist on ordering through a third-party site even for pickup. Why am I splitting my revenue when all they are doing is sending in the order?”

— Owner/operator, multiunit
