I spoke to a friend in the food business in Lakewood, he said itís unpractical to join Uber eats as they take 30%. I wonder if most of the kosher establishment will avoid Uber eats for this reason.
Itís very popular in many places. I know they take around 30% but A) You donít have to pay for delivery and B) Many people look at it as free marketing/sales- if they make a sale though the app, they lose 30%, but they wouldnít have got the sale otherwise. They can capitalize on peopleís Plat credits ;)

Also, although itís officially against their rules, the last time i ordered from a restaurant through UberEats I noticed that it was more expensive on the app than their online menu- so apparently some people just raise their prices by 30% to compensate

DoorDash is active in Lakewood. Iíve done DoorDash from Eat a Pita. Maybe the employee was mixing that up with Uber Eats

No.
He was correct.
Eat A Pita is currently working with Uber Eats in some parts of Lakewood.

Not looking to turn this into a halacha thread, but would appreciate if someone would briefly explain how these deliveries (or any food deliveries) work.

I'm assuming the store puts the food in a bag and staples it closed, or throws some sort of sticker tape on the bag, which im assuming can be opened and closed easily. How do be take care of the issue of Bassur shnisalem?

Thanks

A) In general, I found that stores wrap it tightly in tape with the hechsher all over it, which needs to be ripped to get taken off (with the exception of a store that sent a cup of orange juice not wrapped, I called and they said I should just complain to Uber Eats and I got it refunded)
B) I believe any Siman which the driver canít know about but you do suffices

I'm not sure where it was, but recently @aygart and some others were discussing where elal gave pizza and there was a whole thread with your Q in the halacha thread.
Too bad @TimT is not around.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.
