Do Restaurants Hate Us? Let’s Talk Food Delivery Apps Like Uber Eats, Skip the Dishes & DoorDash.
I guess great minds think alike because @GigLife just made a video talking about this and on Friday, I actually spoke to someone at the LCBO and he talked about why he hated having Skip the Dishes delivering for them. I know they’re not the restaurant, but he gave me some insight into how the app operated from the store’s perspective.
Also, I checked out the places where computers are available for free, and it looks like they’re all closed right now. Check back again in a week when Ontario starts lifting the lockdown.
The LCBO has paused its relationship with Skip the Dishes and it looks like The Beer Store has also paused its relationship with Cornershop.
This isn’t a sponsorship. I just think not enough people know that you can have alcohol from the LCBO (and convenience items including fresh flowers for Valentine’s Day!) delivered in Toronto and Mississauga through Runner: https://www.getrunner.io/
In Canada, Cornershop operates in Ontario, Quebec and Alberta and British Columbia. They also operate in Texas and Florida in the U.S. I know there’s plans to launch in New York and California but I don’t know what the status is of that. The company started in Chile, and is huge in Latin America. I’m based out of Toronto, Ontario — Cornershop’s first major launch outside of Latin America. The operations here in Ontario are huge, so some of my experiences may not reflect those of people in newer areas.
