Would you like to help local restaurants? Don’t use third-party delivery services, Sacramento restaurant says

Some locally owned restaurants say if you want to help, order your take away and pick it up yourself – don’t have a third party deliver it. Adam Pechal, head chef at Tiger in downtown Sacramento, says some delivery services still charge restaurants up to 30%, and he wishes they’d discount this during an incredibly difficult time for businesses. “It has become common knowledge that during this time, delivery services are taking full advantage of restaurants,” he said. “You know, they have to make money too, and I understand that. But it really feels like they’re taking advantage of it in this time when they should work a little more together.” The added cost of delivery services comes on top of the delivery menu, which is why some restaurant owners recommend collecting the food yourself to save money. The plea for customers to pick up the food themselves comes from the fact that the Greater Sacramento region is now under the state’s order to stay at home at 11:59 p.m. Thursday. While the order is valid for stay at home, restaurants are only allowed to offer takeout orders and deliveries.

Adam Pechal, head chef at Tiger in downtown Sacramento, says some delivery services still charge restaurants up to 30%, and he wishes they would discount this during an incredibly difficult time for businesses.

“It has become common knowledge that during this time, delivery services are taking full advantage of restaurants,” he said. “You know, they have to make money too, and I understand that. But it really feels like they’re taking advantage of it in this time when they should work a little more together.”

The additional cost for delivery services will be added to the delivery menu. For this reason, some restaurant owners recommend picking up the food yourself to save money.

The plea for customers to pick up groceries comes from the fact that the Greater Sacramento region will be under state regulation for staying at home as of 11:59 p.m. Thursday. While the order is valid for stay at home, restaurants are only allowed to offer takeout orders and deliveries.
