The Uber Eats effect: restaurants bite back

From Nine To Noon, 9:09 am on 19 March 2018

It's been a year since Uber Eats arrived in New Zealand, but more and more restaurants saying the cut it takes is too high. Almost 700 businesses have signed up to the service, now available in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Hamilton. The Restaurant Association has been in talks with Uber Eats for more than six months now to reduce the 30-35 per cent cut its members pay, but they have not budged. Kathryn Ryan speaks with the chief executive of the Restaurant Association, Marisa Bidois, Mike Egan from Monsoon Poon, and the co-owner of Burger Burger in Auckland, Mimi Gilmour.
