Uber Files: Massive leak reveals how top politicians secretly helped Uber (UBER):

Free grubhub for a year, then I probably have to "join" unless it's a permanent part of Prime. And/or I feel obligated to tip for my $ 10 meal. Just not sure how relevant this is, maybe I'm missing something or just old. Maybe there is - or should be a lhigh minimum order $$$ amount ( eg business lunches), that might help margins and make it worthwhile for everyone.
DASH is going to have a very tuff time with a competitor like AMZN.

I'd be a seller on pops.

The food delivery services are unprofitable and a flawed business model. Even Amazon has some problems with high fulfillment costs. Amazon Prime is needed for customer retention.
We don't live in area that has Whole Foods or GrubHub delivery so those two benefits are of no use to us.

Don't think Grub is even in my area. There's a local company that has most of the local places.

Isn’t this type of business going to get crushed in the forthcoming recession ?
Why? Amazon bought the loser of the food delivery apps which are all going to fail miserably in this inflationary environment and penny pinching by consumers.

@dandroidz you left out the main driver, energy decline
@Crayfishkaliari Yes that too, plus fed up restaurants fed up with fees. Bad news all around for food apps. Folks are waking up to the fact they are paying 30-40% premiums for luke warm fast food.
Amazon will not alleviate that issue.

Amazon bought exactly nothing. Get informed.
