Recent years have crowded the restaurant industry with dozes of third-party food delivery companies and while some restaurants enjoy delivery companies such as Uber Eats or Postmates, others don’t like it too much because it has some issues and some restaurants have a lot worse experiences than others…
Also when giving your meals and delivering through uber eats or another third-party deliverer, you will hand a part of your restaurant’s reputation in the process, however, most people understand that it is not the restaurant’s fault if something goes wrong.
If you want to be removed from the Uber Eats platform, there is a super-easy way. Simply fill out This Form, submit it and you will be permanently removed. After 30-days your account will be fully deleted.
Luckily removing a restaurant isn’t that hard and that’s good. Did you know that some restaurants don’t even know that they are third-party delivery platforms and you know why? Because they don’t get asked. We will help you to get rid of this problem once and for all.
Did you know that you could get all the money and fewer problems in a simple way? Do it yourself! In the rest of this post, we will teach you how to start a delivery service inside your own business so you won’t need to rely on others and get blamed for that. Let’s get started!
How To Start A Delivery System Of Your Own
Follow the steps below and you will have a delivery system of your own in no time!
1. Get a Fitting POS System
The first step is getting a new Point Of Sales System or if you already have one that can handle delivery orders, great! If not, you should get one that can handle customer information and online ordering in addition to receiving delivery orders of course.
2. Get The Right Transportation
To fully get a functioning delivery system you will need a vehicle. There are a couple of ways that you can do this. The first way is to purchase a vehicle specifically for delivery. The perks of this method are that you can add the restaurant’s logo in the sides for free advertisement and that it is really convenient and mainly stress-free.
The second method is that you could ask employees if they would be willing to use their vehicles to deliver on the condition that you provide fuel and other expenses of course. This would be a really easy way to start the delivery process however, it doesn’t come without downsides. If suddenly the employee doesn’t want to use the car you can’t force them in any way or you couldn’t choose the perfect car for delivering purposes.
3. Get Your Line In Order
Having a specific little area and a pickup line will serve and speed up the delivery extremely much. Imagine if the person picking the meals up would have to stand in line or come to the front and make an extra hassle out of everything, that wouldn’t be the most ideal situation, to say the least…
However, by no means it needs to be an equal line to the regular one and it doesn’t need to have a huge counter and everything. A simple area designed for pickups should do just fine!
4. Make A Delivery Menu
Depending on your restaurant’s cuisine and style, a delivery menu in most cases is the right choice because some foods are just too hard and messy to deliver in great condition. If your restaurant has pizzas, burger meals, burritos, pasta, or some simple steak dishes these kinds of foods would be a great choice to deliver. Anyways, you get the idea, don’t start delivering open avocado toasts, eggs, tacos, or something easily ruined.
5. Get Delivery Supplies
When delivering to customers everything needs to be in as good condition as possible. Therefore you will need Pizza Boxes, Insulated Food Delivery Bags, Condiments, Napkins, Recyclable Cutlery, and spices.
6. Hire An Employer/Deliverer
If you are short on employees as it is you should consider hiring a deliverer. It would speed things up because he would have more expertise and would probably be faster than one of your current employees with no delivery experience and things could remain as they are without changes inside the current staff.
If you decide to hire a deliverer you won’t be seeing the courier as much as your other employees. Keep in mind to have great relations with them and don’t exclude or ignore the deliverer in any way, even if you didn’t notice it. This way you will have a much more warm and cozy working environment through the restaurant.
This concludes our post about how to get rid of Uber Eats and as a bonus, you learned a bit or two about starting your own delivery system which would give you a lot more room to work with, more profits, and more information about how everything is going. We hope you got value from this article and wish you happy Uber Eats-free working days!
