Come March, UberEATS will debut in ten large cities — New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Austin, Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, and Washington, D.C. — and like all of the company’s initiatives, the program is already ruffling feathers. Uber will take a 30 percent cut of the bill from restaurants — significantly higher than those of competitors like Seamless, Postmates, and Caviar, which charge anywhere from 12 to 23 percent. Customers will reportedly have to pay a $5 delivery fee, which isn’t abnormal at least. Let’s hope this guarantees pizza that’s actually hot.
