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.
