– Editor’s Note:
The impact on the city of Yelm is clear when introduced here:
Less sales tax revenue from patrons dining-in, where checks are usually higher than take-out or delivery.
– “Eat at home in your pajamas? Uber has an app for that — and you can use it in Olympia”
“UberEats launches this week [June 10] in Thurston County.
The food delivery service from the ride-hail company Uber leverages its fleet of drivers to deliver food from participating restaurants.
So far, the company has dozens of Olympia restaurants signed up to participate, said Uber spokesman Nathan Hambley.”
“It’s the second food delivery system to launch in Thurston County in the last year. Puget Sound To Go began in August.”
“Users must make their orders through a separate UberEats app that lists restaurants active in a diner’s area. On top of the cost of food, a delivery fee of $4.99 is added. Delivery areas stretch from Lacey to Olympia and some outlying areas, but which restaurants show up in a user’s app depends on participating restaurants at that time and the diner’s proximity to those locations,” by Sue Kid, the Tacoma News-Tribune.
