    Good summary! I too accept that it is what it is, but I refuse to participate. Fuck skip and the horse they rode in on. I will always call a restaurant directly and go pick it up if they don’t deliver or pay a secondary delivery driver to go get it if I am too lazy. Hell, maybe I will even just cook for myself... The horror!!
    As if skip even delivers to your acreage Bob

    I've only used one of these services once, because I was hungry, covered in car grease, needed a shower, and my wife wasn't home so I would have had to install the car seat and take my daughter to pick up while I was covered in said grease.

    Other than that, I've been picking up myself.

    This is true now, but sometimes even the guys in the shop will use skip for their lunches and I always give them shit... Haha!

    Wakado seems to be fine on Wix's platform. I rather go thru that than these other middle mans that take way bigger cut.

    For sure. I have been taking orders via email and FB messenger as well.

    I just prefer it this way as I can 100% control the flow of orders, wait times etc.

    My local Viet place claims they take orders by text, but don't really seem to. I've tried, and they seem confused. Guy speaks almost no English too, maybe that's the issue?

    Van Son Viet on 16ave NW has an awesome online ordering system - probably the best one I've seen so far, so there are some good e-commerce ordering alternatives out there for sure if restaurants want to setup their own.

    Otherwise we always order JUS Fruits via text and that worked just fine.

    Tbh if any web devs are out of work this would be a prime market to start signing restaurants up. No reason you couldn't build a basic package with all the backend the same and then adjust the graphics and menu for each restaurant.

    Pretty sure there's a WordPress plug-in for that

    But then you have to pay for that plug-in... And who's to say they won't demand the province set rules on that too.

    Perhaps that's why I am still in biz. I can do bro speak, tfw speak, fob speak and standard English.
