Food-delivery apps take bite out of KCMO restaurant profits

Kansas City doesn't have leverage over Door Dash and Grub Hub. KCMO thinks highly of itself, but no one else does. Forcing increased restriction on the services will result in the end of the services. Not clear how that helps the restaurants survive. Few of the restaurants can manage the food, let alone manage the delivery of the food.

Math. The driver delivers three orders in one hour for $30 for each order. The delivery service charges 15%, or $10. Exactly how will the service pay the driver $15 per hour (yet another mantra)? Cannot have your cake and eat it too.

People who use these services are faggot pussy hipsters. I don’t care how much it costs them. The restaurants have to decide whether or not it is profitable enough to participate.

Bunch is such a clown. A free market economy means nothing to him...he wants to engineer profits. Let the market take care of pricing - if delivery apps are to expensive, eventually people like Bunch will get off their dead ass and go get the food themselves. What a lazy looser.
