Just Eat has announced that it is launching a £10m package of support for restaurants over the next 30 days.
The company said it would be handing back a third of all commission paid by independent restaurants, removing commission on orders which customers collect themselves from restaurants and waiving sign-up fees for new restaurants.
It will also begin paying restaurants weekly and relaxing any arrangements with independent partners that may be in place to enable them to work with other delivery aggregators, regardless of existing contractual terms
Andrew Kenny, UK Managing Director at Just Eat said: “These are some of the most challenging times the restaurants we work with have ever been through. We want to show our support and help them to keep their doors open.” and added
““The food delivery industry has a crucial role to play at this time of national crisis and it is only right that as the market leader in the UK Just Eat steps up to help our independent partners so they can keep delivering for the communities that need them.”
