Some restaurants are apparently marking up their menu prices for orders placed on fast food delivery apps UberEats and Mr Delivery.
This is what insurance underwriter Simon Coleman revealed in his blog post titled "Stand and deliver - The true cost of fast food delivery service".
After doing some research, Colman discovered that some of the food prices on the apps are inflated higher by between 20% and 30% than they are on the sit-down menus.
The Capetanion compared Col'Cacchio, Simply Asia, Nandos and Steers which are listed on both UberEats and Mr D.
He says he noted a sustained difference in cost for two of the eateries when comparing the delivery service price and the restaurant’s own menu.

Colman says that the restaurants need to be transparent about the mark-ups which are not clearly stated on the apps.
