Apparently, Deliveroo and Uber are planning to expand into Europe. The companies are reportedly working with restaurants to provide delivery services. They are also reinstating a program they suspended during the swine flu pandemic, according to the Deliveroo Uber Europeclark Wall Streetjournal.
Uber’s European expansion plans
Among the most significant revelations in the Uber Files is the company’s aggressive push into global markets. According to the files, the ride-sharing company pushed into more than 200 cities in 68 countries in one year. It also tried to evade regulators by using technology and tax havens like Bermuda.
During a tumultuous period of expansion, Uber’s public face in Europe was Mark MacGann, a former European lobbyist who served as the company’s public face for much of the period. MacGann lobbied governments to loosen restrictions on taxi services. He also lobbied politicians to allow Uber to enter the market, wooing them with rosy visions of economic freedom for drivers and low-income workers.
MacGann has since pulled the curtain on his role at Uber and has said that he has some responsibility for company actions. He has also tried to make amends. But the Uber Files reveal that MacGann also participated in an aggressive lobbying campaign in Russia. He was also a central figure in conversations around protests against Uber in European cities.
Deliveroo’s new restaurant concept
Founded by William Shu and Greg Orlowski, Deliveroo is an online food delivery service. It is also a marketplace that works with thousands of restaurants around the world. The company has raised over $1.7 billion in venture capital funding. It also has notable investors such as Amazon, Fidelity Management, and Index Ventures.
Deliveroo’s business model is based on a gig economy model. This means that it hires contract workers to deliver the food. This saves on capital costs and reduces the risk of hiring permanent staff.
It also captures a percentage of the value of the sale. This is why the company’s revenues are growing rapidly. Its revenues increased by 62 percent during the last fiscal year. Deliveroo has a strong database of consumer preferences. It claims to be uniquely positioned to scale its concept.
Deliveroo has an ambitious plan to increase its restaurant presence in the United States. In addition to opening up a few new restaurants in the area, it has partnered with ALDI, which will sell food to Deliveroo customers in their stores.
DoorDash’s reinstating of a program suspended during the pandemic
During the recent health crisis, food-delivery app DoorDash Inc. began reinstating a program that it suspended during the pandemic. In the past, DoorDash charged 15.5% on each order. Now, the company will offer three commission rates. It will also charge higher rates for orders that are made late. In the end, DoorDash hopes the move will benefit both restaurants and customers.
The company said the move is meant to give customers more transparency. It also will allow restaurants to pick from three commission rates. It will also offer different marketing support depending on the fee level. DoorDash executives say their approach tied to waiting times will drive more business to restaurants.
The company expects its profitability to improve in the current quarter. It has also raised its outlook for the year. Its revenue is expected to nearly triple in 2020. The company expects to post a profit in 2021.
The company’s revenue and order volume beat the average analyst estimate. But it posted a loss. That gap is likely due to factors, such as the company’s investment in overseas growth, which was a major factor in its bottom line. In addition, the company’s sales and marketing costs increased to $427 million, up from $38 million a year ago.
