Council Approves Capping Third Party Charges for Food Delivery

The COVID-19 pandemic has spurred an increase in carry-out and delivery food offerings due to issues of safety, physical distancing, and dine-in capacity throughout Culver City. To support our retail food establishments, per the 29th Supplement to the Public Order, the City of Culver City is implementing a temporary cap on third-party food delivery service fees at Culver City businesses until January 31, 2021, unless extended. The cap will go into effect on November 6, 2020. The maximum fees for third-party food delivery services shall be as follows:

Delivery fees shall be no greater than 15% of the total purchase price. All other fees (e.g., marketing, data analytics, technical support) shall be no greater than 5% of the total purchase price per order

The Order does not preclude retail food establishments from consenting to pay any combination of fees, commissions, or costs greater than 5% for specific and additional services provided by third-party delivery services; however, such consent must be in writing.

Editor’s Note; Ordering directly from the restaurant and coordinating delivery with them is the best way to ensure that they are the ones profiting from your patronage.
