DoorDash has a delivery fee, plus service fees which also goes to DoorDash. Is the CAP 15% across both?

I hope so.

I would rather have the restaurants hire local workers who could use the work.

And they get 100% the delivery tips.

And restaurants can assure timely deliveries as well.

Shouldn't there be an App that is able to be used by the restaurants themselves? Looks like a good selling product to me. Given all the App has to do is sell a use license, but not do any work itself.
