GrubHub and DoorDash are companies that provide consumers with different platforms for ordering food online and placing food delivery requests. The food delivery industry is seeing the rapid entrants of new players all vying for a piece of the pie. This post seeks to address the differences between two key players in the food delivery industry – GrubHub and DoorDash.
GrubHub is the nation’s leading online and mobile food ordering company dedicated to connecting hungry diners with local takeout restaurants. The company’s online and mobile ordering platforms allow diners to order directly from more than 45,000 takeout restaurants in over 1,100 U.S. cities and also in London. Every order is supported by the company’s 24/7 customer service teams. GrubHub has offices in Chicago, New York and London. User account is charged as soon as the order is placed. GrubHub merged with food delivery service – Seamless in 2013. Its food delivery arm was launched in 2015 joining competitors like Cavier and Deliveryroo. Grubhub currently offers a strategic delivery price point to consumers charging them the same delivery rate restaurants charge which is 14%. This is a step ahead others who charge up to 20-30%. This move has soared delivery requests for Grubhub which currently delivers for over 3000 restaurants. GrubHub also lets users review restaurant – an incentive for restaurants to give the best service.
Do you want to drive for Grubhub, see below:
Basic Requirements for GrubHub Drivers
- Must have a reliable vehicle
- A clean driving record
- A valid driver’s license and
- An Auto insurance policy.
Grubhub currently pays between 10-13$ per hour and 3-9$ per delivery depending on certain factors like cancellation rates and tips
A key incentive to drive for Grubhub is the company’s level of popularity. Since inception in 2004, Grubhub has garnered about 5 million active users and over 203,000 orders per day. This allows drivers have a steady stream of deliveries daily and this translates to more money. However, a downside for this level of popularity could mean an over-saturation of drivers hustling for work.
GrubHub also delivers other items from local merchants.
Doordash is open and ready for business in 250+ US cities.Using the Doordash app, users search and sort by local flavors, nicest price, or speediest ETA. The next step is to place an order and kick back as you track your fresh meal racing straight for you. This service, just like Grubhub brings your meal right to your doorstep. DoorDash drivers (called dashers) can make good money and they also keep 100% of the tips. They drive anytime they like.
Do you want to drive for DoorDash, see below:
Basic Requirements for DoorDash Drivers
- Drivers must have clean driving records
- Drivers must be 18 or older with at least 1 year of driving experience
- Drivers cannot have any major violations in the last 7 years, including: DUI, Reckless Driving, Homicide or Assault, driving with a suspended license, Failure to stop or report and driving with a license that is suspended or expired
- Drivers with less than 2 years of driving experience cannot have any incidents* in the last 3 years
- Drivers under 21 with more than 2 years of driving experience cannot have more than 1 incident* in the last 3 years
- Drivers 21 and older with more than 2 years of driving experience cannot have more than 2 incidents* in the last 3 years
- You must pass a background check.
*An incident is an accident or a moving violation other than a major violation. An accident and violation occurring at the same time will be considered one incident.
Dashers are paid $6 per delivery and an average of $10 – $15 per hour. Dashers get to keep their tips.
Generally, I think GrubHub has seen more over time. GrubHub is present in over 4 times the DoorDash cities and has a lot of interesting features. I am particularly fascinated by the rating feature and the fact that users can use a lot more search filters than is are provided in DoorDash. Figure out what service best suits you and try to earn more money. Remember, these services offer flexible schedules, so take advantage of these schedules to grow your income.
