CBC Marketplace tested out food delivery apps, comparing Uber Eats, Foodora and SkipTheDishes. Ten of the same meals were ordered from each delivery app:
What are you really buying into when you order from a food app? We tested Canada’s top three apps — Uber Eats, Foodora and SkipTheDishes — to rate their delivery time and prices, and reveal hidden markups you didn’t know you were being charged. And we dig into how they treat their couriers.
Uber Eats was the fastest but had the highest delivery fees, while Foodora also had the highest order costs. SkipTheDishes was the slowest but had the lowest delivery fees. Only Foodora was willing to go on camera with CBC Marketplace.
The segment–which is a bit sensationalized–realizes food delivery costs extra, while food quality is never the same as eating in. If you want convenience, you’re going to pay for it, so this is nothing really new.
