Delivery Prices for Fast Food Restaurants Are Increasing

In recent months, lots of us have been raising takeout and delivery to high art, but now? That pleasure is about to get a little more expensive – delivery services including Doordash, Uber Eats, Grubhub and Caviar are increasing menu prices for McDonald's, Chick-fil-A and Starbucks items by and average of 15.3%.

In other words, if you order a Chick-fil-A sandwich through Doordash in Atlanta you’ll pay $4.85 versus $3.75 if you ordered it at the restaurant. Why? Basically, these services have to charge a premium for them and restaurant to make a profit. And really, a restaurant could actually LOSE money on a delivery if they can’t mark it up. Makes sense, but still...any time we lighten our wallets it kind of stinks.
