We all know the names; Uber Eats, Grubhub, ezCater, DoorDash and Snapfinger are just the tip of the iceberg. When these 3rd party catering portals first appeared on the scene over ten years ago, we didn't know what to make of them.
They send me new business, but take a cut of the action?
Why are some of my clients starting to order through them?
Are they a passing fad that will vanish as quickly as they appeared?
Time has proved they are not a passing fad. In fact, these 3rd party services have become a force. A staggering 86% of consumers are using them at least monthly.
In this session, you will learn the pros, cons, and "at what cost" the major players across the country offer. Additionally, you will leave armed with insider strategies on how to work with these companies and leverage their long reach to help your business, including strategies to reduce their commission and forging partnerships with them that will drive more business your way.
