"Even though as we just discussed, we're not maybe quite at the ceiling yet. Maybe that will happen more in the fall or maybe even into next year, but is there are there other strategies to trying to help recreate some of that economic activity that still hasn't quite come back yet? And maybe you've gotten into it all. No, no, it's a good question. And I, you know, we've done or we tried to brainstorm here about things that we can be doing, whether it was straight up rent grants at the early days of the pandemic to developing a third party delivering system for our restaurant, so they didn't have to get gouged by Grubhub's and seamless of the world. Right now, I mean, more to where we are today. We have a small business grant program out there, specific to social media. To help some of our small retailers who never traditionally could rely on foot traffic and didn't have to focus as much on a social media presence. To help them up their game. So we're partnering them with mentors, people who are expert influencers. To help figure out what that program will look like. And then giving them a small amount of seed money to actually place some ads online and improve their presence. In terms of social media. So there are things that I think we're trying to do on the margins that the city could do on a broader scale potentially if they work and they do have their small business forward initiatives that, I guess they will be rolling out. You know, at the end of the day, some businesses are going to survive. Some businesses are not. I do think the sort of patriotic call to remind New Yorkers to be more thoughtful about supporting our small businesses when they can. You know, does seem to have an impact..

"Hi everyone. Welcome to another episode of office hours with the professor, as always, I'm your host, William, the professor collis, and basically as always, I'm going to say that this week's office hours is a little bit different or unique. I feel like I say that every week. But a story that I think deserves celebrated. And a story that I think deserves celebrating for a relatively straightforward reason. But one that I think is very important for eSports and our industry. So let's get right into it. What story did I pick this week? And I think it's probably going to surprise you. I picked a story actually. I bumped into in sports business journal. They had an article Grubhub's feeding frenzy feasted on fans, and that has to do with the fact that Grubhub was very pleased with the results of their feeding, frenzy, marketing campaign, that they hosted in conjunction with the LCS. Why did you want this to be your office hour story? And the answer is because sometimes guys, it's about the basics and doing the basics well. And I really looked at this feeding frenzy promotion that Grubhub executed. And it really just looked like the basics of marketing done well for eSports. And I thought that was worth calling out that not every major marketing event in games and gaming has to be some renaming of a team or some multiyear epic partnership that sometimes just good basic marketing activation, holding to some simple principles can have great results. And I think that's what we saw with the feeding frenzy at Grubhub. So you might ask, okay, well, what is the basic stuff that they did? Well, let me tell you. Under this feeding frenzy banner, they played some games of league, right? And get it, you know, feeding, feeding, ha ha ha. So they had some tenuous connections to sort of games and gameplay. They ate some food, for example, there was a chicken wings eating competition. They paired these broadcast activities with events taking place at the tournament itself. And they paired all of this with sort of general consumer activation opportunities like a promo code for free delivery. Free wings, through buffalo wild wings, different things like that. And all of this was undergirded by consistent prominent Grubhub branding. It pops up everywhere. You can't miss it. Whether it's a delivery bag on a Caster's desk or a pinned announcement on YouTube. It's pretty clear who is sponsoring this, why and what it's about, food delivery. And that's what I loved. That's what I loved. It's just wonderful to see an eSports activation that is pretty much basic marketing done right and done well. And I think the lesson here, as I set up front, is it's no wonder in my mind that Grubhub saw some good results here because they hit the basic block and tackling of marketing over the head. They had multiple touch points for the consumer, a clear call to action about what you were going to do, AKA order with Grubhub and a promo code. Clear branding to reinforce everything. And enough of a tie to the events and the product itself that it didn't feel forced, right? No one saying this is the most clever marketing campaign of all time, right? There's not some amazing gimmick or surprise celebrity. This is just a great piece of fun basic marketing done well. And I thought that needed to be celebrated. And I think more companies need to remember that you can activate any sports in a low touch or traditional way, but when you do it, do it right, do it like grump. So that's this week's story. I give it a solid B plus. Sorry to grab hub. It's not an a because, you know, we do want to save those first some of the really crazy out of the box stuff because obviously if you can do something really innovative, that is worth celebrating that is something you should push for. But this is a great B plus story. It's great traditional marketing and I was super happy to see it done well in eSports. So thank you for joining this week's episode of office hours and I'll see you all next week..

Yeah, I mean, I've been fooling with proteus a little bit here and there, but hell yeah. We'll talk about we'll talk about that more games next week, probably. Mysterious. Yeah, there's some shit. Yeah. Similar to your father like proteus, the classically, the first person shooter that is designed to look like an old first person shooter feels real good. It's got a map editor and community maps in there now so you can play people's remakes of E one M1 launched. How is the community stuff around that doing? Because it didn't really have much because it just lost. It seems like it has a ton of maps in there, but I didn't necessarily dig deep into it. I must have been playing the campaign, which they last update. They're still in early access, but like the last update they had, I guess, was meant to flesh out the campaign a little bit more. I'm about three or four levels into that. Go back. And it's just got a great feel to it. The weapons are nice. It doesn't look too fake old. It's like the right level of fake old, but still modern. I think they hit a really good sweet spot there with that stuff. And that's pro deus with a D not protest with very different game. Very different game. And unlike time is its font work needs a lot of work. Yes. It has no mobile game. It definitely just big plain font that's like, wow, did you make this for a touchscreen? What are you doing? What the hell's going on? Seems like a time to go lightly. Somewhere. Yeah. In the executive. These days, get that. Just put husky stash in there. No. All right, unless you all got any more games that we can talk about. I was thinking maybe we should take a break. Let's do it. Sounds good. Let's take a break. Also, just wanted to mention, I've been playing the great ace attorney chronicles on top of the other 50 million games were also playing in prep for the end of the year. And boy howdy, I think I could have been a lawyer sometime. I could still be a lawyer, but maybe I could be a real lawyer. You could do that if I do a reverse or more. Just bring that game into and say, I'm ready to take the bar. They'll be like, oh, you don't have to take it. You could win. You could just take the bar, right? That is the bar. That game is the bar. Boom. All right, let's go to break. Rub hub, Grubhub, Grubhub. That's right. We're talking Grubhub. What does Grubhub do? Grubhub serves restaurants. What do you do? You eat food. I mean, honestly, sometimes you prepare that food. Sometimes you don't have time. Sometimes you're working on something. Your elbow deep in a project and you just, you're not gonna have time to make some food. Grubhub is there for you. Because Grubhub is there for restaurants. They're not gonna let the restaurants have a bad experience. You know, they're gonna deliver it poorly to use so that you think the restaurant is bad. Grubhub is trying to be the good middle man to make this happen, they're working hard to serve restaurants so that they can work hard to serve..

Grubhub Accused of Overcharging Restaurants Amid COVID Pandemic in New Lawsuits

"Ingram hub in new york city a lot of restaurants. We're finding that they were getting charged for phone calls. Now you think about that. And you're like that's kind of weird. How could grub charge a restaurant for a phone call. The way they do that is when you go to the grub up pitch for your favorite restaurant they generate a number that route routes through grub hub. I so you're actually calling the restaurant but not before grab the mafia daughter for you right. But like this is why they feel like it's mafia. They opened the door for you. They're not providing any service besides discovery. Personally i've done this. I i wanna call the restaurant directly order from them and reduced that mission costs so i go and they don't like maybe have a website or maybe grow is the first thing that shows up so i clicked on crop up. Call that phone number now. I know they are not getting a benefit from that. They're still being charged. And what's weird about it is. They can't determine the order that you've done so they do like an average so like they between like for this restaurant the hampel noodle the ex-pat in in harlem charging like five to eight dollars five to seven dollars about like approximately per order so like if i'm ordering like an eleven dollar noodles myself and now they're being charged five to seven dollars for that like that's a crazy amount of money. In a lot of cases it's an algorithm that was determining how charge because there's nobody on the phone listening. Actually i listening to the calls so the algorithm says this call last thirty seconds. It's an order but sometimes it wasn't an order. The person was like hey like do you have this dish like and they were like no and i actually hung up and drop hub was actually chart charging for that. Oh this is. there's a lawsuit actually a couple of lawsuits. That have happened outside of new york city or people have sued for group. Says like you're right. We should only charge for orders on the phone that resulted order so they still believe that like it should be able to get money also phone call orders but they basically saying there are a lot of fraudulent charge.

Updating The Numbers with eMarketer Co-Founder Geoff Ramsey

"Am so pleased to have as my guest. Jeff ramsey the co founder of emarketer and chief evangelist for insider intelligence. Jeff is a veteran of the attic. She'd your stage and we are going to talk on this podcast about the numbers. You should be paying attention to in the year head and the stories behind those numbers but before we get into jets predictions for the rest of twenty twenty one. I wanted to talk about twenty twenty. We saw so much change because of the pandemic and i'm sure that wreaked havoc on your predictions. Jeff well Yeah twenty. Twenty is year a lot of people would like to forget but we can go back and revisit that certainly in a busy year for our forecasters are forecasters busy themselves with excel spreadsheets Calibrating and then recalibrating numbers at a dizzying pace based on new information. That's coming in and certainly during last year we saw a lot of changes particularly with the consumer and So then ensued a ton of revisions to our projections that would normally last for you know at least eight nine ten twelve fourteen months You know we we were. We were spinning our wheels so fast. It's a wonder we didn't come off the tracks Biggest places where you had to revise those numbers Assure i think the biggest area without doubt was the area of e-commerce and we're gonna get into that in a little bit but if if anybody in the audience is thinking to themselves e commerce you think about about that. We'll think about your activity over the last year. And if you haven't done more door dash or grubhub or i'm not going to the store and never mind that. There's you know a massive winter storm that we're now seeing people are jew. Were just afraid to go to malls all this data and statistics were talking about you. Know people were a lot of most people. Were taking this seriously and mask or not. It was more comfortable. Felt more safe to order from home Whether it be on your desktop laptop or your mobile device so i would say the biggest set of numbers are the biggest changes in our set of numbers were in the e commerce space space and where we netted out to give a kind of a tip of the hat to twenty twenty is ecommerce sales grew by something like thirty two percent in twenty twenty versus twenty nine thousand nine due to the lockdown measures in the fact that we are all self isolated and just to put that into perspective If you look at non ecommerce sales that's that's the that's the the that's like the rhinoceros compared to the flea of ecommerce right but if you look at total retail says we're talking somewhere in the order of almost six trillion dollars right if you look at ninety commerce sales. They slipped by negative Three point two percent in two thousand and twenty. They might grow again predicting grogan this year but it actually slipped by over three percent and yet total commerce. Total retail sales grew why because of e-commerce growing a significant thirty two percent. So we some people said that we have Grown e commerce On original predictions something. We've advanced something like two or three years ahead of where we would normally be an and the trains left attracts. The growth rate is gonna go way way down. It's going to continue to grow some bets. That's the biggest change that we've seen. Yes i can. I can validate that anecdotally. In terms of how much ivan purchasing on amazon as well is kind of a lot of new e commerce stores. I was trying out to get you know farm to table food delivery and that kind of thing personally but that that's where my taste lies and you know you're making me hungry. Zony sales are seeing so many sales are moving to online. It makes me wonder you know one. What does that mean for all these digital advertising companies that kind of our that point right before you hit by And as well as how much time people must be spending online consumers platforms before they go on to you now. Consumed their dinner via door dash. Sir you know what that's a really good place it to really dig into because you know if i were say a a number two area where forecasters had to continually busied themselves. With reaching recalibrating. Numbers was in the area of time spent so let me just puts in perspective on that because i think most of us realize having or locked in an apartment or a house we start to go a little bit stir crazy. So what do we look to. We looked to digital activities to you know suck up our time and so a couple of things with these since cove it. Americans have increased the time that they spend with all media cross online and offline by about an hour and five minutes a day. So it's over thirteen hours a day. We're spending with media now. I do need to put a little caveat there thirteen hours you might be thinking. Wow that's a lot of time. And that's that's half the twenty four hours you know that are in a day. But it includes double-counting for multitasking. 'cause i don't think there's any of us on the planet that don't were we're watching. Tv have another device in our hand. We're doing something else right. And because we never know in the second or nanoseconds time where attention is fleeting from one. St the other way that attention actually lies. We have to double count that figure. So if you're spending an hour watching tv and you're on your mobile phone that whole time we have to double count That that our so it becomes two hours if that makes any sense so we're spending an extra hour a day and almost all of that Ghosts to digital so just to give some perspective before cove it we were spending. This is pretty pretty significant amount. We're spending about half a little over half of our day. Six hours and forty nine minutes a day Doing digital stuff alive. It was mobile. was streaming but then we went from six hours forty nine minutes in two thousand nineteen the pandemic hits and we go up by a an hour and a minute to seven hours and fifty minutes a day with digital And we think that digital time is going to continue to increase by twenty twenty two. We'll be spending eight hours a day with digital which was a little frightening for maybe some parents as they think of their kids. Because this is on average and if you think of kids and teens and it's probably way more than eight hours day so as we net out digital time now counts for roughly sixty percent of adults a total daily time spent with media and another area within within digital of course streaming Were all streaming more and when you think of time spent with streaming whether you thinking connected. Tv's court cutting or cord nevers. That's my favorite. Group is like college students who never will never have paid for a traditional pay. Tv subscription. why would they win. Their parents are basically donating their netflix account to their kids And then you got. Ot subscription activities with netflix amazon prime. And so on so. These numbers really shot way past our original pre covid estimates and so where we netted out. Was it in twenty. Twenty one time spent with digital video will have risen by thirty three minutes or over half an hour per day and so now we're spinning If we're looking at digital video time said about two hours and nineteen minutes And that's up from an hour and forty six minutes and twenty nine thousand nine but just a quick reality check. And then i'll let you jump in here. Reality check is that you might be thinking with all this streaming and so on that people are spending on average more time with digital video than they are with linear tv. But that's not quite yet. The case are estimated that traditional. Tv whether you're watching broadcasts abc cbs. Or you're watching a cable. Channel or direct access is is sixty percent of the time we spend with. A video is with traditional tv

Restaurants Look for Ways Around Food-Delivery Apps

Restaurants Look for Ways Around Food-Delivery Apps

"Okay. So here's an experience. You probably become pretty familiar with in the last year or so. You go door dash or ubereats figure out exactly what you wanna eat. You added to your cart and then when you go to check out. The cost of your meal has skyrocketed with all the fees and delivery charges. And somehow you're stuck paying twenty five dollars for a burger that originally cost twelve bucks on the other side of the process. Restaurants have had a similar experience. They depend on apps. Like doordash uber eats to connect them to customers especially in the pandemic but have been frustrated with the commission that they charge and now some restaurants have been looking for ways to cut out the middleman or apps for more on this we turn to our tech reporter pretty khurana. Hey guys thanks for being here. Thanks for having me on the show. Okay so talk about some of the frustrations that restaurants have been bringing up. And what are we seeing them do about it. Well restaurants are increasingly pushing back on the commissions that apps charge not just restaurants regulators in cities like new york san francisco. Seattle have stepped in to cap commissions. Because it's really hurting restaurants with in store. Dining shot small restaurants are relying entirely on delivery and taking thirty percent of every single order is really eating into their prophets. What restaurants are increasingly doing. And this is ironic. My door dash delivery a few weeks ago. Had a sticker from my restaurant inside the bag seeing twenty percent off if you order directly from us and i found it interesting because the restaurant was using the same app that it was trying to bypass to get the word out so restaurants are increasingly driving more volume to their own websites their own apps there enticing consumers with deals discounts promotions that people go directly to them to order. What's also happened. Is that this push and pull between restaurants and apps have inspired a new wave of online delivery services that are saying you know what we're going to give better deals to restaurants and some of them that we wrote about are either charging restaurants. Nothing or charging them say one dollar for every order as opposed to thirty percent commission on the order and how the apps respond to the concerns that the restaurants have about those commissions. Well the meeting apps have said that they have taken steps to help only on and the pandemic door dash waved commissions for small restaurants. Grubhub suspended some commissions. Overeats has said that it has cut commissions in hof for restaurants that are now doing their own deliveries so the apps are pointing to all these steps they have taken to cut or wave or suspend commissions. Touring the pandemic separately. They've said that we've also given millions of dollars in grants to restaurants to help build outdoor seating so they are definitely helping restaurants. But i think commission's are here to stay Especially off to the pandemic and it remains to be seen how this reshapes landscape long-term As consumer behavior evolves and as restaurants think of alternatives to get around these apps in their fees yet and. Let's talk more about those alternatives. You know you mentioned some of them are any of them. Proving successful so far it's unclear if the new host of apps and services that are coming up will ever turn a profit themselves because even the big apps ubereats jordache grubhub aren't profitable even during the pandemic where orders an all time high. These apps haven't been able to turn a profit. The biggest cost in food delivery. Is the delivery itself. So what some of these new apps are doing is that they're saying let's eliminate that cost altogether. What some of these apps doing are driving enough volume to restaurants themselves to make it worthwhile for the restaurant to deliver. So in that instance. The app itself doesn't have any delivery fees or any delivery cost associated restaurants set their own delivery fees for the consumer and what we found is that often they price it lower than say door dash or ubereats just encourage more orders on apps that are charging no commissions or offering better deals to restaurants. Yeah and on the other side of that door dash is set to post earnings later today. It's their first report since going public. And as you mentioned they and the rest of these apps have really struggled to make money even as the pandemic meeks ordering and really popular. What the rise of these alternative solutions mean for them. These big apps are already responding door. Dash ubereats and grubhub are actually now building websites and apps for small restaurants and acting as old school logistics partners to just deliver the food. So they've taken note of restaurants increasing wariness. And they're saying well we wanna keep the restaurants happy and we're seeing this growing movement by restaurants to drive more orders to their websites. So why don't we build these websites for them. We keep the restaurants happy but then we charge them a delivery fee just to deliver that order. So that's what they're doing to also keep the business and to also make sure that they're not completely being cut out by restaurants themselves so what's the takeaway of all. That's what does this all mean for the industry moving forward whether or not this reshape. The food delivery landscape depends on how consumer behavior evolves once things. Go back to normal will. Delivery continued to make a huge part of sales or will in-store dining return and delivery goes back to being a small slice of business. If delivered remains a big part of business restaurants. Might say it's worth my time to deliver myself in that case that might eat into the apps business. If delivery goes to being small slice of business restaurants might say you know what most of our money is coming from in store dining anyway. It's fine even if these apps at taking thirty percent in commissions it's fine. It's not hurting me that much. So a lot of this depends on how consumer behavior shits off to the pandemic and whether or not. It's still worthwhile for restaurants to invest in delivering themselves. All right that there are puerto predate verana things today. thank

Ohio City Temporarily Gets Into The Food Delivery Business

"Pandemic. A lot of restaurants are closed for in person dining and need. Food delivery services like door dash or grubhub toe work with them, But the service is expensive.

The beauty of this is that we don't have A ton of traffic, so we're not going to be stuck in traffic jams like a big, big big city. That's Karen Carmen Beachwood, Community Services director and beechwood delivers is her brainchild. Believe me, I were not taken over over each other. Or dash or grub, bub, But they are partnering with 10 restaurants in the city to provide delivery at no cost to residents or restaurants. Beechwood Mayor Martin Horwitz says it's similar to another delivery service. This affluent city has long been providing. We're used to transporting seniors from appointments and everywhere else who can certainly deliver pizza. About a mile down. The road from City Hall is a block long row of upscale stores and restaurants, including Cedar Creek Grill. No, it isn't beautiful. Inside the dark wood and glass panel doors.

Beechwood delivers allows restaurants to circumvent the high fees delivery companies charge. Consider, for instance, what Cedar Creek pays the delivery service door Dash restaurant operations director Tim Dad and says the fee really cuts into his bottom line. Let's look at $100 order. We'll immediately $30 of that is going to go to the door dash of that $100. Another $30 is gonna go to pay for the food, all things being well. Another almost $30 is going to pay for labor, and Devin says on top of that are other overhead costs. But delivery and take out are now essential. If restaurants like this are going to survive before the pandemic take out accounted for less than 3% of cedar creaks business. Now it's nearly 30% of sales were realizing that more and more delivery becomes almost the inventory in these times. There's people that can't get out or don't want to leave their house. I don't want it. Climbing a current go across the country. Local governments are going after high delivery fees. Cities, including Seattle in New York, have placed caps on delivery commissions in Boulder, Colorado, officials are using cares act money to subsidize delivery service there. Back and beechwood Karen Carmen says the city's food delivery services just considered part of its economic development plan on wheels. Not only do you have to grow businesses and move people into your city, but you have to maintain and retain the people that are here, and this is a great way to retain the businesses. That we need. For now, This city has set money aside to deliver dinner for local residents for the next 30 days or so. Then they'll decide whether to expand to more restaurants or to provide lunch time delivery service, too. For NPR news. I'm Anne Wu.

"Today. Linda johnson rice joins me skimmed from the couch. She is the ceo of johnson publishing company which published ebony and jet magazines johnson publishing helps give a voice to millions and chronicle the african american experience across the country. Linda has also served on numerous corporate and philanthropic boards including the chicago public library. Omni kong group. Grubhub tesla estonians national museum of african american history and culture. Linda thank you so much for coming on the show. Welcome to skimmed from the couch. Thank you for having me carly. I'm excited to be here and sounds to have you here so i think you know the first question. We start with the same one every show. Skim your resume for us. I most certainly. I'm happy to do that. I am still the ceo of johnson publishing company. So that is great and it. Is that the founding company for ebony jet magazines and fashion fair cosmetics all started by my family and for better or for worse i have never worked anyplace else and so i grew up in the business. Grew up in the in the magazine business in the publishing business and also in the beauty business but always surrounded by incredible people great parents but great staff who were very uplifting and all about aspiration and inspiration for the african american community. So i grew up in the business. I went to Born and raised in chicago got my degree in journalism from. Usc came back and got my masters in management from northwestern. And i got my masters in management. So funny i started out full time in school and then i switched and i went part time so it took me longer but i really wanted to work at the same time and i had the luxury to be able to do that. A lot of people don't have that. But i did because i wasn't looking for a job once i got my degree. I already knew where. I was going to be an actually once. I i got my masters in management. I actually became president a company like the very next day. But i do want to stress. One thing that i think is really important here and that is i have worked in a family business but it was not a given that i was just going to step into this role and if you know if you knew anything about my parents it was nothing was given. You've really had to earn it. And so it does seem like boy. That was a really fast. Reject re but This was decades and decades of work. I mean i spent more time at a copy machine making copies and doing all kinds of stuff that you know people do when you start out in in a company. I don't think that was any different for me. Something that people would be surprised to know about you that if not on your professional bio oh my goodness. Let's see on a personal side. I i love to ride. I have horses. I've owned horses all my life so that is sort of my luxury right now. I don't have one. But it's the way i can relax and i studied opera. We do you think. Please don't ask me to sing. But i did. I studied opera for for many years. Took voice lessons and loved. It absolutely loved it. We're gonna dive into the family business. Tell me about your family. Tell me about your parents so you know my parents. John and eunice. Johnson were part of the great migration of african americans from the south to the north. So my father came from arkansas. My mother came from alabama and very different backgrounds. This is so it's really interesting. My my father came from nothing. And when i say nothing his town great people but only six hundred and sixty eight people there. His mother believed in him so much and she just you know the love that she had for him she poured into just him and so for her. The best thing for him was to get out of arkansas arkansas and get education and the way to do that was you know they. They got on the train and they came to chicago. they had relatives in chicago. So a lot of people. With the migration from arkansas people came to chicago alabama. They came to chicago. My mother came from alabama so my father dirt poor came to chicago. Went to high. School became head of the debating team editor. The school paper graduated attended the university of chicago and my mother on the other hand came from a background. Where you have to think about this. Her father was a surgeon. Her mother was a schoolteacher in psalm alabama so obviously black african american back then prominent family. Her two brothers were surgeons. Her sister was a phd professor in english and my mother came to chicago to get her master's in social services at loyola.

This Could Be the Year of Take-Out Thanksgiving

"Services have had huge pandemic boosts not surprisingly there ready and waiting to ferry millions of holiday meals in particular. We're presuming that. The ceo of door dash is particularly thankful for the extra business today just last week. The silicon valley company filed to go public that filing has been met with as much skepticism as a novice cook eyeing his first turkey. Now let's be clear. Door dash is now the largest delivery service in the us by volume revenues grew exponentially after the first lock downs and they've continued to surge since january door dash has delivered more than five hundred. Forty million orders according to the company's sec filing that's about three times as many as the same period a year ago this year's orders brought in almost two billion dollars in sales again well over double the same time last year. Sales are likely to continue growing as long as the pandemic is with us. But here's where some of the skepticism comes in like many tech company door dashes focused on growth at the expense of prophets. The delivery business is a dogfight door dash up against ubereats grubhub postmates which ubereats bought in july and restaurants owned delivery services as a result. The company has only had a couple of profitable quarters since it was founded seven years ago. Yeah one of those quarters was this year in the second quarter door dashes turned a profit of twenty three million dollars but in the third quarter jordache once again lost money bat. Despite restaurant owners long complaints jordache takes as much as thirty percent commission from them. In addition to charge customers delivery fees new regulations intended to protect restaurants could rain in those fees and yet in the strange economics of our time the company's valuation skyrocketed from two billion dollars last year to fifteen billion. Now this means that even if door dash can't find a path to profitability anytime soon. It's investors stand to make a lot of money in an ipo consider the ipo's timing for another perspective to the company filed on november thirteenth. Just a little over a week. After winning a victory in the most expensive ballot measure ever to hit california along with other gig worker businesses like uber and instacart dash spent millions to win passage of proposition. Twenty two that proposition exempts some companies from a new california labor law that reclassifies gig workers as employees door dash has a million drivers call dashers across the country having furnished them with sick. Leave and unemployment benefits would have threatened the company's existence they say passage of prop. Twenty two may door dashes. Ipo prospects much brighter. Cnbc reported under prop twenty two door. Dash uber and others will have to provide some health care benefits to drivers along with minimum earnings guarantee over time those dashers face their own. Existential threats in the future jordache says it plans to replace them with drones and driverless cars. The same kinds of challenges and controversies dog door dashes rivals uber. Eats has also soared on the back of pandemic restaurant closures but analysts say it's held back by the waning fortunes of uber's ridesharing. Business and lift is now partnering with grubhub which went public in april of twenty fourteen. Both uber and lift went public last year. But by the end of the year they're shares tanked. Now we hardly expect you to think about all this messiness when you're just trying to get dinner on the table but just know that beneath the soaring sales food delivery. Business is an all sweetness and light. Maybe go pick up your meal yourself. Just a thought. Happy thanksgiving

"Signed up for and city council passed this measure as I said to cap all third party delivery commissions at a temporary fifteen percent plus five percent on marketing contributions and other related fees so that equals twenty can you break down what these fees are actually for yes so I'm gonna use GrubHub as an example so just to be listed on GrubHub restaurants pay anywhere from fifteen to say twenty three percent GrubHub calls this a quote marketing fee and obviously the more you pay the more prominently you're listed on their site then if restaurants use the GrubHub delivery people that is an extra ten percent and then there are what's called crop credit card processing fees which range around three percent so you can see how that ends up adding up to you no more than thirty percent per order and restaurants were saying that you know pre Poveda it was okay if they were doing maybe five percent of their sales on deliveries and pickups but now that it's one hundred percent of what they're making they say they can't afford to give up more than thirty percent per order and you write about another level of fees citing GrubHub in particular you're right GrubHub tax on a fee anytime a customer calls a restaurant using the number displayed on its sites against GrubHub sites so what is the fee and doesn't apply every time a customer calls a restaurant even if they're just calling to check on the status of an order that they've already placed yes so this is a way GrubHub make sure that if you call using their site you know if you find a restaurant through their site and call through that number they're trying to make sure that they get a commission on any order that results from that right but I had one of the restaurant owners let me look at his grip on the count and I got to listen to a lot of those calls all of them had charges and I mean I reviewed on April third call where a customer just left a voicemail regarding and missing item from an order and that one minute and forty nine second call casa restaurant I need an extra eight dollars and forty six cents now this is a mistake and GrubHub admits to mistakes like that but it's up to the restaurant owner to find that mistake and then alert GrubHub to that charge so if a customer wants to avoid that but titular kind of thing when you because it might confuse people when they say if we if they called the restaurant through the app I mean the restaurant phone numbers the restaurant's phone number so is it if you're on your phone and you just click on the phone number on the GrubHub back and that starts you know the active dialing then GrubHub knows it but if you just go separately to your phone or to another phone and call the number then they don't take that cut so this is where it gets tricky and this is why GrubHub has come under fire so if you do it through the app you know that is a grub pub owned number I'm if you do it through Google sometimes and this happened to me a few weeks ago your Google restaurant and the first thing that pops up is actually a grub hub site but it's very hard to tell if it is or not so you have to be extra cautious to make sure it's actually the restaurant's website and not a grub pub site and actually last year an investigation by vice found that yelp was actually tricking customers into ordering through GrubHub owned phone numbers listed on the site in order to try to marketing fee because they had partnered with GrubHub soaps they don't make it easy for people so in a restaurant contracts with GrubHub then the restaurant gets a second phone number and it's that GrubHub phone number the customer doesn't know that yeah exactly so interesting let's take a phone call this is not an owner but a driver for the apps so we'll get that perspective as Alberto and Elizabeth is going to help us report this story Alberta thank you so much for calling in high Hey are you going to do about it I'm I'm I'm a driver four I I drive for uber eats and doordash and what you're talking about is it doesn't have to deal with what what I do but beat the the fees are the way they are for the delivery service not for the phone call and give the Dodgers for the delivery service because they have to pay the drivers the restaurants do not have drivers on their on their arms shall we do not pay for drivers but I think that advertising you know I'm not going to deliver full for three dollars you know it's it's kind of a luxury it's not you know needed to get the old people are ordering for they they a lot of the time they would never order from that restaurant if if not for over each other or door dash so the drivers like yourself have the right to make a decent living too may I ask how they pay you is it a percentage of the tab if it X. dollars per delivery how do they pay the drivers we get paid I think a percentage of the job and then and then chips so like usually every week at like five dollars six dollars sucks sometimes and then the and then the and then the which is which is reasonable you know to to do that five or six dollars is reasonable to deliver your food and then people trip on top of it and then sometimes the company gives us incentives during really busy times and they bring us a little more number thank you it's gonna it's gonna affect the drivers it's gonna affect you know they're not they're not going to deliver the food I guess thank you thank you for coming in with that and please call us again and so if we're looking at this from sort of a social justice standpoint Rebecca Ann who's being greedy and who's being cheap and who deserves what it's easy to rail at GrubHub or seamless or any of these companies for charging a lot on the other hand we want people like Alberto to be paid a decent wage yeah and so the city council had a niece initially proposed in this was before Kobe to a ten percent cap and the reason they lifted it to fifteen percent for deliveries was exactly because of that because they don't want to hurt the drivers right so if you don't use you know GrubHub drivers right now you don't have to pay that extra fee but if you do use them you pay ten percent well now you could you know proper could charge fifteen percent to use their delivery drivers so city council at least they said the fifteen percent cap is meant to help those drivers and is there any regulation in the city council bill to make sure that the drivers don't take another cut you know get diminished because of the cut on the company's you know what there is and and GrubHub has said and breeds and the other companies are saying you know the drivers are going to suffer the customers are going to suffer they haven't mentioned specifically house so they haven't said we're gonna cut pay or we're gonna cut tips but I mean there isn't really regulation protecting drivers in that case Jeremy in Manhattan you're on W. NYC hi Jeremy Hey how are you a woman avid a fan of your show and I own a bunch of restaurants in New York City and New York DC in Carolina and I use GrubHub all at all of them in New York they dominate the market and I can speak from host restaurateurs we pretty much hate the platform and the real soon various reasons one is you know when you get a bill at home for let's say a hundred dollars it in the worst case fifty dollars may go to GrubHub in some way some form or another whether it's for the delivery whether it's for the promotions whether it's for just the marketing free and marketing three no one has ever been able to explain to me what the difference in marketing fees if you pay whether you pay fifteen twenty thirty people pay more than thirty at times and it's supposed to promote your business and and change the way change the customer's behavior and you're supposed to get more but they can't tell you anything other than it'll help your business and SO that's one thing trying to get a rap I pay GrubHub thousands and thousands of dollars every single week for my group of restaurants were very small group and we're not delivery heavy in any of the markets for which GrubHub we still pay thousands my rap I think has literally like over a thousand accounts I can't get him on the phone for days and if there's a problem with a order gas doesn't like something for whatever reason it always resort back to the restaurant so it could be a hundred dollar order and they'll just say and we'll just take it off our bill arbitrarily will give the gas like a fifty percent discount and we won't get paid on it it's the craziest company in the world to complete monopoly and I think three city San Francisco Chicago New York in in New York you can't live without them I there's a restaurant on the Upper West Side of New was arrested on the Upper West Side eighty fifth in Columbus for about forty three years called Jackson Hole I'm sure a lot of people remember that restaurant Jackson Hole this group and they closed about five years ago and unbeknownst to me I want to cross the street saw the owner of the day they were packing up their stuff and I said you know I'm so shocked you guys are leaving and you know you guys were here before anybody and the guy told me flat out he said the delivery apps have put me out of business primarily the growth of and seamless knocked me out of business and I didn't even understand what he said I said it wasn't a landlord's wasn't all that new government K. restrictions in agencies in charges he said Jeremy it clearly was the apps and I didn't understand how much how what effect they were they had on our business at that stage of the game and now I do you know if we do a promotion with them say five dollars for your first time ordering not only do we pay the five dollars we pay GrubHub I'm at five dollars it isn't it's just absurd everything as a reporter on this story is there anything you want to ask John I'm yeah I mean I mean I'm wondering Jeremy if if this feat will actually help you you know if you don't use GrubHub delivery maybe Europe you could pay as low as five percent fee is this something that's going to help you in your restaurants you mean the city council it's going to make a big.

"And we are in downtown San Francisco at Grub H. Q.. Here was this like the cures partial. HQ No actually so a PUP headquarters is actually in Chicago. We have a big office in San Francisco Big Office in Boston and good presence here in San Francisco as well. I'm basing trigger. No Yeah Yeah and this is Alex. Alex how are you today. I am well. Thank you so much for having me. Yeah we are excited to talk about Grub And we're excited to talk about instrumentality in marketing. We're GONNA get into all that and more but first. How did you get into marketing in the first place well actually have quite a funny funny story? I'm not a marketer by training. I'm a software engineer by training I started out writing a whole bunch code then was attracted to the marketing technology. Space switched over to product management and marketing technology became GM in that space in darkness Hadman became marketer. I still when I think about what my job is is. It's only partially marketing. And in my mind. Growth means marketing and product. Whatever it is that you need to do to get your business to be expanding? How do you view marketing? Do you think that you know with. Obviously each company is different but marketing. GRUB is there an element of product marketing ALMANAC growth like. How do these all kind of blend together you know you're the you're the VP of growth? But do all those things fall under you know. My primary responsibility is is the marketing portion of this but the way groped her business works and the way. I think it's appropriate to be thinking about marketing. These days and growth is how all of these pieces come together. Frankly the best way to do so isn't just from allocating those dollars to the most most efficient channels. It's also oh by optimizing the rest of the network and of course the starts with conversion. What happens to those customers after they come in? How do we delight them through the entirety of the experience? So after the place that order order how can we maximize the chance that they come back. And that doesn't just mean the product that also means. How can we help and integrate with logistics? How can we make sure that the the customers have the best experience if they call care all these aspects of very much predict the lifetime value of the customer and Since grupp is very much of. LTV business we have to think about all of these aspects if we care about growth yeah. I'm I'm curious like what's the scope of work rub of his at right now like how many how many meals delivered what what's going on. Sure sure sure oil we are public companies who all of these stats are are public more than five hundred thousand meals a day. We in the past twelve months had more than six billion dollars worth of food sold so We're quite big. And it's delayed and privilege to be trusted by so many consumers everyday we day to feed them on by so many restaurant tourists to grow their business and bring them bring the motorist also a big and important responsibility that we take real seriously. We appreciated gated. I can tell you that because when you're sitting there and you And it's a Minus Twenty degree day in Chicago. Like you through this past winter you know you just want to hit that APP and an hour about it. We'll thank you. That's actually one of the magical things that I love about our business. We have to keep all three sides of our marketplace balanced of the demand. Our restaurant supply and the number of drivers that are that are out there because if at any point then balanced goes out of wack driving driving more demand if you don't have enough drivers on. The road is actually a net negative to the overall marketplace moreover this balance is really fragile and changes over time so so if it starts to rain for example demand explodes. Moreover we are truly hyper local business in that we can be in perfect balance in one neighborhood and then just twenty eighty blocks to the west. That situation can be really really different so we have to keep that balance up at all times. And that's that's one of the things that I love about but the complexity of uh-huh yeah I just find it so fascinating at the way these type of marketplaces work that you have like you know the the the running joke is you get into manufacturing because you are you you get into creating a product. 'cause you love you know whatever cookies or whatever which it is but what you really end end up doing is predicting the weather because all of your supply chain depends on the weather and all these things crabs no different Obviously whether playing a role in this what are some of those other factors factors for you that influence the different kinds of levers that you can pull from a marketing standpoint of creating demand around the product tour. There's multiple multiple aspects there. One has to do with having the right restaurant. Inventory of having all of the restaurants that are consumers want and as means a good combination of the famous National National Brands beloved Brian's like Taco Bell. KFC but also your neighborhood mom and pop shops your small businesses your nearby pizza shop that you just crave so so we need to have all of your favorites in order to fulfill your needs as a diner and if we do that while we have those niners coming back and there with us for life yeah It seems like you know you touched on this a little bit already but it seems like you know the. LTV Is so oh critical to something like this because once you have your service is you're You're going to stick with that have you is that how do you. How do you figure that out? How well we look at the stability of our cohorts really carefully and you're exactly right were very much of an LTV business that is one somebody becomes niner places? A handful of orders with us we can with pretty high conference predict that they're going to stick around and how much money we're going to make from them for years to come and such because we very much care about that. LTV BALANCE VERSUS CPA balance were CAC balanced. We're able to then invest based upon the characteristics of the Diner Anderson we acquired appropriately such generally profitable growth. Now we don't just look at CPA and LTV and that's where that concept of incremental rooms in. Yeah Yeah No. And let's get into that I mean you know you said Perhaps this is how to be confident in your Roi every marketer has those three dreaded dreaded ladders that they need to. Maybe it's not threaded. Maybe it's something different but those three letters that they are always thinking about you. You have a spin on this about dot incrementally wise that the case tour so incrementally in my mind is this idea of what would have happened anyway. If I didn't do any marketing activities will what would have happened in my product. And here's one really simple way to think about it. Imagine there's no gap dot com website. That we all know you come there and you see a big banner that says ten percents off okay a lot of consumer CNN and maybe a couple of days later a lot of consumers if you look back have redeemed manner you can imagine the following conversation between a marketer and let's say their CMO twenty percent of the transactions in the last couple of days have used US better if we didn't have this banner. Oh my God we would lose twenty percent of the orders that really so because if you look in the previous days it's not like there were twenty percent fewer orders. There were a lot of people who came to the site and they were delighted to see this this promotion but it's not like made them jump from the fence and basically make the purchase there it is. Maybe there's maybe there's one hundred people who have redeemed that coupon and out of those only ten have have made that decision only because they saw that promotion the other ninety they were just free riders but those ten are costing you the redemptions of All the hundred as such your incremental. CPA your incremental costs of getting. Those ten customers is ten times larger. I love this idea idea. And I think it's one of those one of the classic like lessons on you. Know pricing is the one negotiation negotiating without all the facts. If you're not GonNa win the negotiation and I think that a lot of times like we're putting things out there until world without really understanding what the motives are for that person right. It's like you know that's why you have seasonality. That's why you have you know whatever it is. That's why you have new trends. You have all this sort of stuff but yet we're just going to constantly say ten percent ten percent and if you look at our email the email marketing just because every single time you send an email that says ten percent off does mean that. That's the right thing to be doing when you're so right you're so right if you're treating your customers as homogeneous heard that that is behaving in the same exact way. Frankly disrespectful to them and it isn't good business either. There is instead of showing every single visitor at ten percent off coupon. Maybe we could think which ones and this coupon is going to be most incremental for. Maybe those that haven't purchased for awhile and are visiting you again. Maybe those that have used coupons before if you're able to kind of zoom in and find out the sub section for who the offer is most relevant. By definition the instrumentality will be higher on the cost side. But there's also also in criminality on the revenue side that is in our minds we don't just think about incremental. CPA We think about incremental LTV. As well I mean I think about this all the time with black Friday a day or I'm like and I'd be curious. Maybe know something about this like you have all these black Friday deals on like say washers and dryers for example or TV's TV's We've pretty much all know as consumers now that you can get a really good deal on a flat screen. TV At the end of the year. So what is your incentive to wait to the end of the year unless your TV broke but you pretty much know that you can get a really cheap flat screen TV at that point in time. So it's like this incentive Senate that we've put forward is now something that desensitizes people from acting the rest of the year. You are so right and if you create a habit in your consumers immerse to expect a promotion on a certain schedule not only are you delaying their transactions but you're ultimately creating a less profitable business especially if you're in an LTV business where customers keep coming back if you set their expectation then every black Friday. You're going to have of your house cleaning services at a major discount. Well they're gonNA wait. They're going to wait. And they will happily buy at a discount. So in my mind find discounts are very effective you just have to use them in a personalized fashion and instead of.
