Mayor Valérie Plante has announced that she’s asked the Quebec government to impose a temporary cap on the service fees charged to restaurants by Uber Eats, DoorDash, SkipTheDishes and other food delivery apps in Montreal. The request has been made in time for the 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Quebec curfew, which starts tonight and runs till Feb. 8, during which time restaurants will not be able to accept take-out orders after 8 p.m. Currently, delivery fees charged by the major restaurant delivery services can be as high as 30%.
“COVID-19 has forced restaurateurs to turn to home delivery. But the fees charged to them by delivery companies are very high. I’m asking the government of Quebec to impose a temporary cap on these costs, to ensure profitability for restaurateurs.”— Valerie Plante
