Restaurants ditching Uber Eats for own delivery services in level 3

There’s been concern from hard hit food businesses of a refusal from Uber Eats to reexamine their high commission fees as New Zealand prepares for Alert Level 3. 

Under Alert Level 3, restaurants and cafes will be allowed to trade using delivery services like Uber Eats - but say the 35% commission fee will push them over the edge financially. 

Christchurch restaurant Fush used to use the service, but is now developing its own online and delivery service, while at the same time supporting staff who can operate as drivers until restaurants fully reopen.

Owner Anton Matthews told Simon and Phil they were working hard to support all their staff, and also encourage supporting local businesses. 

He says with the support of their customers, they can keep people's hard earned dollars flowing through the local community.
