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
Apocalyptic Battle for Take-Out Dollars: Uber Eats Pits Star Wars against Star Trek
"A. From wondering David Brown and this is business wars daily on this Wednesday September thirtieth. It's hardly a stretch to say that the pandemic has been delivery services, best friend, take-out meals, or so much more attractive when we're avoiding other people that's meant a surge in revenue for leaders and Hungary rivals Uber Eats and door dash in the second quarter ubereats. Gross delivery bookings totaled almost seven billion dollars a jump of well over one hundred percent from q one. Before we all started eating in as a privately held company door dashes keeping a lot of data to itself but the number of people using dash doubled from ten million last year to twenty million now according to research firm Emarketer. Possibly, to Ubereats Chagrin Jordache became so ubiquitous that it was responsible for more than half of all US meal delivery in April. Wow. That's according to market researcher. Edison Trans last week linked in named DOOR DASH number two on its list of top fifty startups based in part on exuberant hiring plans. The companies expected to go public by the end of the year Uber eats holds about thirty percent of US market share despite their rapid growth neither door dash nor ubereats has yet turned a profit chew on. Then these rivals are employing ever more creative marketing strategies in their efforts to. Become or remain top takeout dog ubereats constructed a quirky ad campaign that celebrates competition itself a sort of Meta Mezei the latest ads featuring unusual rivalry between get this star wars and star Trek. They star none other than Mark Hamill Luke skywalker in star wars and Sir. Patrick Stewart's Star Trek's Captain John Luc Picard they compete ferociously almost grimly in games of air hockey and connect for. But when an uber driver delivers a delectable dish, each breaks the foreboding mood to politely thanked the driver in this Ad. Stewart. Armed with Cricket Bat and Hamill carrying a baseball bat in a dark empty warehouse. Tonight. I'll be eating a Veggie cheeseburger. On Shibata. No tomatoes. Tonight I'll be eating four cheese. Tortellini. With extra tomorrow. Tony. Stewart so it's come to the. Thank you. Proper. Part of what makes the spot? So amusing is that the argument tomato tomato is, of course from the classic George Gershwin. Song, let's call the whole thing off. But of course, neither UBER EATS NOR DOOR DASH is planning to call the whole thing off quite the opposite if takeout became essential in March, it's remaining. So in could see even more growth this winter, a second wave of the virus causes more lockdowns. In Uber Eats case, the company says the campaign celebrating rivalries already been a huge success in Australia Taiwan Japan, where it launched last year and ad featuring Kim Kardashian and a fictional Australian character pushed uber eats brand awareness in Australia two levels quote on par with McDonnell's the company told Ad Week the new Stewart Hamill Lads bring the campaign to the US in Canada but whether the cleverness of ubereats his ad campaign can steal away
The Right Way (and the Wrong Way) to Ask for Reviews
"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we're GonNa talk about the right way and the wrong way to ask for reviews. But first we're talking about asking for us what kind of websites are we referring to I'm assuming we're talking about YELP G to Capterra decides the websites. Well. First off it just hit me I. Think we're almost four years into this podcast. We are. Oh, we're almost at fifteen hundred. We are four years into it as of this recording. Right it's crazy. Thinking about that. All right. So the reason reviews are important is If you do reviews happy for your anniversary Yay. If you get reviews. See back in the day when Amazon was I doing e commerce people buying products on Amazon and then Jeff Basil's was like Yeah I want to let people review them why you WanNa let them review it. He's like whatever Chris the best experience is what's going to help me win in the long run. And that was right and then reviews weren't just used for e contract started being used for to be services software literally anything that you can think of. and. The reviews are effective is look as humans. We all make mistakes aren't perfect but ones if you when you spend your dollar or your pound or your ruby or whatever currency using. If you can make sure you're getting what you want, and that's what reviews do. They don't guarantee that you're getting what you spend your money on, but it increases the chances that you're getting what you want when you spend your money. Yup I'm just GonNa give some real life examples where I just remember I got a good experience or a bad experience I. Remember one time post made. Using deliver rouw whatever door dash, wherever you dear food deliver UBEREATS, whatever. So Post mates delivered something to me and the guy sent me this really long text afterwards like you know gas is really expensive and it's really hard to drive to you and all that and he's like, give me this entire story. I really appreciate if you leave a five star review and also give me a tip as well. It looked like it was a can message and it just was not a good experience. Afterwards, that is a wrong way. DASS reviews a right way I remember afterwards I bought a product and then there was a card it only asked for review but gave me something else as well. So it sort of is me to write through and say, Hey, no pressure at all. But if you leave a review, it'd be. Really. Helpful for us and just please be honest and also by the way, here's another bonus for you. So they didn't need to do that and it was really optional and they kept it lighthearted that actually may be wanting to do it because if you look at whatever have online yelp or whatever. I, usually don't write reviews but if I'm compelled to do it because I felt incentivize do it in essence is. Getting at is the right way is to help people and do what's best for them. You can always do the soft ass but the wrong way is bribery and saying, write a good review and I'll give you this and you see some companies doing that it's just not genuine and don't look at reviews as off I get more five star reviews than people are going to buy from me well, if you're faking. The reviews in your incentivizing people in the wrong way, what's going to happen is you'll get the high reviews temporarily but then event, you'll keep getting negative views as well or you want people to just leave real reviews and when the leave bad reviews figure out how you can improve your parked or experience or your service. So that way in the future people nationally way better reviews which will naturally increase your sales. You might as well ask for the real feedback can you give me some honest feedback whether it's to stars four stars, five stars whatever because it helps make you better what I found from one of my friends restaurants is that they're yelp just started exploiting with reviews because they just kept getting better and better and they kept driving an amazing experience. The food was amazing. Experience was amazing. Amazing to be there and boom. It was four and a half stars and hundreds of reviews right if you can do that cut into what Neil was saying earlier with Jeff, bezos obsess over the customer and you drive a good experience you're for sure gonNA. Get Good Reviews
Maybe You Should Be Focussed On The Picks & Shovels
"Great Gold Rushes. Of course. There were many lucky people who made a lot of money discovering gold, but they're also lots of smart people who made a lot of money by selling the picks and shovels to the guys to go out to find the gold and I think that's worth remembering at a time like this because. Naturally, we celebrate the big wins. If you can create the next I find the next airbnb or the next Bouba then you're gonNa make a Lotta money, but there's a reason we celebrate those kinds of successes because they are exemplary standouts, they're not the norm takes a perfect storm move factors for those sort of things to be created, but there's also a lot of people making money on selling cleaning services to people who run ABM bays or property management services to people who run in base. Pardon me. right now. We've got save the food delivery. Things become a really big thing during the lockdown and companies like ubereats or grabbing this part of the world. Food pattern is part of the world. The the little motorbikes everywhere delivering. Now, you could create that platform and be a massive success, or you could be the guy that just makes the bags. You'd be the guy that makes those little food bags and boxes that sit on the back of the motorbike. And that could be a great success so darn always worry about swing for the fences are at the point now where you're looking to try and rediscover something we'll try and find a new way. Forty lost job or your industries is suffering in crisis. Think about the picks and shovels rather than the actual gold and I think about what you could do to help. Support those industries that already successful, because they've already proven it to go and create the next platform, the next I find the next big thing. There's a massive amount of risk involved in that. There's a lot less risk involved in selling products and services and tools and picks and shovels to the company's already successful. Already. That is for today I do. Thank you for your time and I will be back again tomorrow.
Bad Day for Cash
"It's Thursday may seventh walking to market fully. I'm Chris L. Joining me. The one and only bill barker good to see you good to be here. Earning season just continues to roll along. We're going to talk about the delivery economy. The working from home economy. We're going to start with the war on cash and at the moment cash needs to call a timeout because cash giving its butt kicked square and pay pal both out with first-quarter reports boats stocks up more than ten percent. And it seems like this was less about the results that square and payback delivered in the four first quarter and more about the way everyone is thinking about. Non-cash payment business. Yeah I think that's fair They're interesting reports and this is not maybe certainly not only them but Lift for instance I think or pay Pals report sort of breaks down results into the january-february period And then the march period and then the April period and then go forward period so when they talk about rapidly evolving business situations Many other companies are in the same boat where there's a pretty happy story to tell according to the numbers for January February and then a big change in March and then maybe a stabilization for these companies in April. And then just. We don't know what's going to happen going forward right and true of all businesses. They pretty much. If if there's one thing one unifying thread through every one of these conference calls regardless of the business it's people saying but we don't really know which is totally understandable but in the case of pay pal the I totally understand why they are eager to talk about the current quarter. It's like yes here's our. Here's our first quarter report but once we're done with this let's talk about what's happening in Q. Two because what we're seeing is pretty exciting stuff. Yeah they're seeing. I think quarter million new subscribers a day. Something like that is the pace. They're on right now. I think may I was the largest increase or the largest number of new users. They've ever had This is an acceleration of the future. Really you've covered it You've thrown the war on cash name around it People been following it and this Accelerates what has been going on To cash and where it's going and pay pal has been one of the principal beneficiaries of this A little bit more so than square for the last quarter. But they're both enjoying the very nice days. Stocks Square is is is more reliant on small businesses in a in a way that pay pal. Isn't I mean just for anyone who's been to a small independent shop or a farmer's market or something like that where you know you walk into a tent you think about buying whatever they're selling and they've got the little square thing that you swipe right there so I mean that's that's probably putting a little bit of dent in their q one numbers but it's hard to imagine square not succeeding over the next five to ten years? Yeah it's the you know little white square boxes where Swipe your credit card that you come to know and perhaps love perhaps not love? I mean I have discovered when I am operating with any sort of square interaction that there's a new opportunity to tip somebody at the counter for something that in almost all other circumstances. I don't find myself tipping for this option to just would you like to just go ahead and add? I don't know ten fifteen eighteen twenty percent onto that Which doesn't occur everywhere else. But it's just enough of to guilt me into doing that often. So your and you didn't give specific examples but it sounds like you're talking about. Hey if I'm a coffee shop. Yeah if I had some change or whatever. I'd throw that in the tip jar if I go to an independent bookshop. I'm not necessarily looking to tip the person I'm buying the book from no and yet here a square asking me whether I might consider that So the little square devices aren't getting much business in an era where people are not going into the little small shops but the CASH APP. is Is is doing good business for them and you know competitor then. Mo and You know all the money That you probably owe me for instance you can Use either of those two. Oh you don't owe me any money at the moment you now. I'd be like what are you talking about you? You were in that poker game the other week. That was not a poker game bill. Man Be Twenty Bucks No I. I did hear that you were the person walking away with the money. Yeah Yeah and and now you don't even have to see bill man you can just like send a message on slack and just be like hey man then give me my twenty bucks. Let's move onto the delivery economy and help me understand this because we got. We'RE GOING TO GET THE FIRST QUARTER RESULTS FROM UBER. After the closing bell today but we already got first-quarter results from lift and grab hub and on the surface. It would appear as though grub hub had the better first-quarter results and yet because they broke even and everyone was expecting hub to report a loss and Rub. Shares are down ten twelve percent. Meanwhile lift stock is up more than twenty percent this morning. It's still down for the year but maybe it was The benefit of low expectations but first quarter revenue for lift was up twenty three percent compared to a year ago. Yeah well there's a difference between a stock that is up twenty three percent to get back to about half of the price. It was a couple of months ago And the stocks like Paypal and square. That are at you know approaching all-time highs off of the you know perhaps You know some of the earnings expectations. you know changed around their stories. I think for you know lift. Things are improved over yesterday. Mostly in the sense that the company has reported. It's it's going to save about three hundred million dollars a year on run rate basis On its operations by scaling back on some of it's expensive. So that's that's the better part of the story there. Really the The numbers declined. Of course precipitously in in March And and continue to be In April Over where they were in January and February. But you know the company was sowing pretty pretty strong growth going into the beginning of this For the whole quarter twenty three percent. increased revenue for the quarter. That's completely on the back of the strong. I two months it do. You have any teams like every quarter when home depot comes out with their results. Lows comes out the next day and it's almost always similar but not quite as good. I don't know if we have enough data because they uber and lift haven't been public companies nearly as long as Home Depot and Lowe's but any should we look at Uber reporting after the bell today and think. Oh yeah it'll probably be about what lift is doing. Yeah and in part because Hoover's already announced The massive Layoffs that were announced yesterday and that was I can't remember exactly how many people it was But it was massive In terms of the business so I think that they'll be able to quantify what the savings from that are going to be They obviously found ridership way. Way Off Right now and they've got to find saving somewhere and that usually comes at the cost of employees. So that is. I think the reason that it's up today aside from just the you know the mimicking lift is the. There's I don't know that this would affect the stock price but the announcement that it is a taking an investment in Lime and getting rid of its scooter business and I guess. combining that with limes I I don't know about where you live but where I live. Yeah we need some consolidation in the scooter business way too many of them and it's just again now. These aren't all going to survive. So yeah the sooner you all can get together and decide which brand is going to survive the better. We're all going to be. Yeah I have not found myself using any of the scooters that have plentiful an available wherever you go around Alexandria but Also getting back to Grub a down thirteen percent today. I think that the results today you would have to have believed that if there were a time when Grubb was going to have a great quarter it would be the one just announced So the fact that they weren't really able to translate to additional orders into additional profitability and have said that they are nearly all of their profits. the in the coming quarter are going to be used to generate additional orders for the restaurant partners. Okay you know being a good partner with the restaurants which they have been accused of not being a great partner to restaurants in the past maybe long term but you know they're they're a company that you would think well they. They be raking it in right now. And that's that's really not the case. Yeah this is absolutely one of those times where it's I think. Completely Fair for investors to look at a business and say it's put up or shut up time if Grub can't get it done at a time when there's a national pandemic and people trapped inside their homes. I'm sorry Yup it may be time to move on and where you know. The the UBER EATS is a legitimate competitor. as his door dash but I think that that will be one of the interesting things to get a from. This evening's call by Uber They're gonNA see the ridership way way way down but ubereats will make up Some of those losses For the company and say the other thing that they'll be pointing to is is the money that they have been able to save going forward With the UNFORTUNATE LAYOFFS. That are necessary. Let's ramp up with Peleton Shares of Peleton fifteen percent hitting an all time high although it's only been a public company since last September so but still a good day for Peleton third quarter report big again not surprising big jump in sales big jump in membership huge huge jumping in sales up sixty six percent something like that And the subscription revenue is up more more than that and this is without one of their principle items Really available for sale in most cases that is they're they're better known for the bikes but they also sell What I would deem to be outrageously expensive treadmills you might be able to comment on that because you're the ultra marathoner here and They sell treadmills which they can't Install right now because they can't go into people's houses and it takes a couple multiple repairman to construct these things. But they're forty three hundred dollars and What what do you think about that so? I don't have a treadmill in my home. I have never been interested in having a treadmill in my home so I I can't say I have a good sense of what a reasonable price for a treadmill. Is You know why that is. I prefer running outdoors. 'cause it's yeah you're from Maine. So the the worst weather that northern Virginia has to offer. You is like kind of a joke to you. Know to your makeup right. I mean I'm not a big fan of running in driving rain but yeah I'll run twelve months out of the year. Sure yeah and weaker people than yourself. Less hardy people from America really Are are willing to spend apparently forty three hundred dollars on a treadmill or will according to Peleton when they're able to bring these people these devices into people's homes and construct them in the meantime the twenty to twenty five hundred dollar bikes Are going like hotcakes. there's a panic buying. Apparently you know according to I think the New York Times of of these New New York Times readership probably intersex fairly well with Palestinians subscribers so They've had the largest class in their history. Twenty three thousand people In one class And just all the numbers up and down. Look Great and At the moment not that they want to rub it in but the nobody's really rubbing it in when they're having a very good quarter right now. They're couching their enthusiasm for results in in more muted terms than that. But they're having the last laugh over everybody who is trying to dance upon their graves for their Christmas ads. They certainly are. And it's not hard for me to imagine that businesses start to get involved with Peleton and by that I mean if we are going to. We're going to see a shift in businesses where businesses conducted. I don't know about you. I'm already hearing from friends of mine. Who Work in Manhattan and there in situations where a fifty thousand square feet of office space in downtown Manhattan and. Now they're saying well. We don't think we're going to need this anymore. And instead we're just GONNA find a couple of smaller footprint places out in the suburbs instead of fifty thousand square feet. We're going to need about ten thousand square feet. We're going to shift how we spend money as a business. We're going to be spending less on office space but we want to make sure our employees are happy and so instead of subsidizing their commute. We're going to subsidize their Home Office. And it wouldn't shock me at all in the next six months start hearing about businesses that are using. Peleton as a way to recruit people could be could be. You should Do Pr for them. I think they're doing fine. Npr FOR THEM BILL Mark. Thanks for being
Cloud Kitchen Platform with Ashley Colpaart
"Ashley Cole Part. Welcome to software and Jiang daily. Thanks for having me. There are a variety of ways that I can order food on my phone these days. I've got UBEREATS and Jordache Post mates and these. Apps first came out six or seven years ago and I was just ordering food from normal restaurants. A courier was picking up the food from the restaurant but today the market has matured. And it's gotten more sophisticated. How has the world changed due to the fact that there is so much volume going through food delivery APPS? I don't I don't know if I even have the answer to that. It's like there's more on demand couriers and workers that are able to kind of make their own hours set their own hours and work when they feel like it. And there's more people that are able to you know get a pizza or a sandwich or Sushi. Brought to them at any place in their community without having to leave their office or the park or wherever they are so. It's more like it's a convenience economy and people are able to just get get what they need when they wanted. And that's the biggest change I think. That's that's the society's feeling. Could you explain the term cloud kitchen? Sure so like you mentioned in the in the question. Is You know people. Typically restaurants would produce food for delivery and it would be kind of coming directly out of their restaurant kitchen but with a rise in delivery and the rise with demand in delivery restaurants are feeling strapped and constrained by that rise because most restaurants are not designed for delivery designed for in restaurant dining. It's just a different model. So the idea of a cloud kitchen is to really centralize the production of food producers. So that it's easier for delivery drivers to pick these things up and deliver them direct to consumer so a lot of the Times. The larger companies are playing with data. They're seeing a large demand through these delivery. Apps for specific types of food in their able to cater to that demand by creating what they call virtual restaurant concepts that may exist only in the cloud. They may just be a brand that exists only in the cloud that delivers food and or they could be a restaurant that needed to expand into delivery and so decided to rent a kitchen space. Off-site off premise. From their restaurant they keep the same brand. They optimize their menu for delivery. But they're doing that. Production in a large facility. Can you kind of think of a warehouse that has multiple kitchen units in it and you can imagine multiple brands making multiple types of food under one roof? These kinds of giant industrial warehouse. Kitchens where today there could be multiple virtual restaurants existing in them. Did these kinds of warehouse sized kitchens exist before there were food delivery apps and the desire for these cloud kitchens. Yeah I think that the original version of this concept was the mall food court where you could bring a family of five to the mall. Food Court in your daughter wants a hot dog and you want chicken tenders or Mexican food or or whatever and you're able to kind of get all of those slices from one food court. It's a little similar to that except for that the pickup option tends to not be existent in these in these facilities. So I would say that was like the first version of that and it's also funny you know having a new term coined by the industry so the cloud kitchen or the ghost kitchen or or virtual restaurant like technical branded terms for something that's existed a long time which is the idea of commissary kitchen which is just a centralized location for mass food production when those of existed since we started having the necessity for licensed commercial spaces that are you know licensed by the health department. Can you tell me about the business model of these warehouse? Kitchens Shire so there's there's a couple of different models that are trying to gain some market traction right now one would be the the warehouse model where there's again multiple brands under one roof. But they're renting out these spaces to an existing brand and the brand rents the space and access to the distribution channels and technology. Just so they have a turnkey situation for which sell this food as an extension of their existing brand another model that is emerging is the facility itself is in Unbrella Company for their own brands. So you might have kind of a a wing shop in a burrito place at a Sushi restaurant but they're all owned by the same kind of restaurant group or LLC that oversees the facility and they are optimizing their menus and optimizing their production and menus based on the concept that they have under that roof some of the food that I might order on from a food delivery APP. Some of it might come from a virtual restaurant that runs entirely out of these warehouse. Kitchens when did we start to see virtual restaurants start to appear on? These APPS. Like Uber Eats. When did it start to to be the case that I am not necessarily ordering from a restaurant? This is somewhat of a new phenomenon. This is kind of more in the last three to five years. I think New York City was the first place that it saw the rise in in the ability to do this and to optimize for it and since then you know as the VC money starts flowing in in the concept starts to gain traction within the business world you start seeing them popping up kind of all over the place the problem is or concern is to the consumer. It's difficult to tell where your food is coming from. In this is kind of at odds with the consumer demand of wanting at the same time to have more knowledge about where their food comes from so that disentanglement and not knowing is coming from an existing restaurant is coming from a commissary kitchen. Is this coming from a cloud kitchen or frankly is this coming from. Somebody's home kitchen where they're just producing it home. And then hopping on one of these delivery APPs. It's Kinda hard to tell. We don't really know that there's a lot of looseness happening with it. So let's say I want to set up my own virtual restaurant today. So let's say I have an idea for a restaurant that serves exclusively toast. It serves Geez. Toast cinnamon sugar toast French toast. I WANNA get started immediately. I want to start as fast as I can today to start selling my toast. What's required to set up a virtual restaurant for me? So the first thing you'll need is a business license or an LLC to kind of operate legally you then as a producer. If you're going to be the one that's going to be preparing the food you'll need to get food handler card and be legally. Have the adequate food service training that your health department requires you then need access to a licensed commercial kitchen space and so an existing kitchen that is licensed to produce food. You could oftentimes folks would like Kitchen space from an existing restaurant that had time when it wasn't operating or you can use what's called shared use kitchens where the business models to rent out space so commissary kitchens shared use kitchen's kind of the same thing but they're allowed to rent hourly through monthly plans and then you can access that space you'll then want kind of optimize your menu and figure out where you're going to buy your food from have that food delivered to the kitchen on hand so that when you are ready to operate it there and then you you know hop on one of these sites and you create an account with the delivery APP so that you can post your menus and poster hours and then sit around and wait for folks to find you if you haven't you know. Put in a lot of the legwork to have built your brand up so that folks know who you are what you are so the value that these aggregate irs bring to a new brand that might be trying to gain. Traction is visibility to a broad base of consumers that are hungry. So when you know you're searching for something to eat and I see you know you're toast company and I'm hungry and I was craving toast. I can search for toasted and find you. And what kind of deal does my virtual restaurant make with the warehouse kitchen so oftentimes are going to be like long term leases where they're leasing space for their production so there's usually a monthly lease bannon. There's oftentimes a lease or some sort of contract around the data and the access to the platforms as well. And what about with the food delivery APPS? What kind of relationship do I have is a virtual restaurant with food delivery APP companies? I don't know if I know the answer to that. I think they're all changing. They're all trying to optimize that relationship. And so I think you're using a third party application to mar essentially market your your brand through their APP. And then there's a percent of anything that kind of flows through that that you're paying to APP for them connecting you with the consumer demand. You run a company and you make software called the food corridor. This software for shared kitchen management. Explain what your software does sure so we are essentially a an ERP for the shared kitchen industry. So as I mentioned earlier the idea of a shared kitchen is not a new phenomenon. These types of kitchens have been operating for for decades based on the idea that in order to sell food to consumers you need to produce it in a license commercial facility. Oftentimes these can cost over fifty thousand dollars to build on your own or outfit and if you are just getting started as a food business or or or seasonal food business. It doesn't really make sense for you to to pay for that type of capital infrastructure. Meant so the idea shared spaces much like the co working spaces that you share the cold storage. You share the Freezer Space. You share the docking. You should the dry storage and you're renting the facility in booking time in that kitchen when it's available in new operate during those times so what? Our software does is kind of manages the back end relationship between the owner of the kitchen and the food businesses that rent from them so we essentially allow for scheduling and booking we do compliance document management for managing the business license the insurance in the food handler card of all the renters. We also manage the billing and allow for monthly plans and added fees in storage so that they can manage that relationship. Kinda get out of the office in back into the kitchen to support those food business. In in the businesses that are operating out of the facility. So the customer is the warehouse kitchen itself. Yeah the customer is the shared kitchen themselves. Yeah the owner operator up. The
Will coronavirus change the grocery industry forever?
"In the throes of a global pandemic supermarket shopping as quickly escalate escalated from Casual Chore to Mission Impossible. Lots of quarantine. Americans have shifted the most obvious modern day solution. The Internet so many people have been placing online grocery and meal orders. That delivery services are breaking records. Amazon has seen so many orders. Since the corona virus pandemic hit that the company recently announced. It's hiring a hundred thousand. More EMPLOYEES UBER. Each offering free delivery from local restaurants during the crisis they also offer no contact deliveries. Additionally the company will give three hundred thousand three meals on ubereats to first responders and healthcare providers during the crisis. And if you want to order a meal by mule basis. Now's the time to sign up for post mates. They're offering ten dollar coupons to new customers. You just have to download the APP. John has this officially changed. Is this a permanent change? Are we all going to start ordering our groceries ordering food delivery instead of going to grocery stores and going to restaurants? I think a lot of people may already were. I think they'd now people are going to be forced to try this and see the convenience of it but I live. You've been in my house. I don't know if you noticed I'd of like literally I could throw a tennis ball and hit a rouse. I have right behind a grocery store so it'll never be that way for me but I think for a lot of people you know. This was predicted in the movie wall. E Ya remember where everybody just sits around in a pod and has everything brought to them. Yeah and nobody ever has to leave the comfort of their pod. So yeah I think it's going to make. I think that we could do a whole show on the things. I think that are going to change permanently as a result of the CORONA VIRUS. And this is going to be one of them the way we consume meals. I think is is going to be a completely different
Coronavirus corrections and the rise of remote work
"Let's talk about the markets. There's no avoiding this. If you track technology if you track startups venture capital all that good stuff you see what happens to the public markets and in the last couple of days. It's been a complete shellacking. I think it's pretty much the only way to put it. We haven't seen declines at this magnitude in some time and it's gotten everyone in the talking about what's going on and what might happen next. Danny just giving you a gut check to the listeners. And all of our friends out there. How surprised are you by this eventual and kind of finally happened moment in the US stock market completely? Not surprised I mean I I I. We're not allowed to actively trade but I did trade my 401k portfolio into a money market fund. Like two weeks ago. So I'm quite pleased with the The the choice I actually sold at literally the peak a couple of weeks ago and so so I feel vindicated like my. My retirement is secure all five hundred dollars of it. I was GONNA say this is not actually a show designed to. Let's Brag but I'll give you three points for that one. I'm doing the old fashioned like long term investing. Keep your money where it is. Let it do whatever thing. So we'll see who's right in the end for people just catching up though if you're not active in the US stock market stocks have fallen tremendously over ten percent last couple of days and that was is really been kind of following the US news cycle so as the corona virus. The kind of thing that has come out of the disease world. I'm not a doctor that's best. I can do has become more prevalent both internationally closing more borders impacting more economies heritage anymore trade routes and also popping up here at home. Concern has risen. Also we're beginning to see impacts of the lengthy shuttering of large parts of China reflect it in trade and supply chain disruptions companies like Microsoft booking holdings which ones booking dot com and utanics have highlighted issues in their revenue and earnings coming up so the the slowdown is here after weeks of talking about any kind of expecting it and finally Goldman which you've all heard of they forecasted that. Us companies will have zero growth in twenty twenty which is pretty damning because growth is kind of what powers the stock market's expansion and that's kind of the the bad news. Sas companies are also taking a hit any. Am I missing any Any bad news here. Obviously people are dying Thousands of people are being marooned hundreds of millions in China and around. The world have been quarantined so those are the headlines but I I think what's interesting is is. There's there's two patterns here one is I want to focus in on zoom or let's call Zoom Zoom Zoom. The video conferencing software. That also helps us. Equity is having the best time of its Goddamn effing life so they they have doubled the stock value in just the last couple of weeks from the low sixty S in early December to about one hundred fourteen as a recording the show so eighty eighty dollars per cent and its market. Cap is now at almost thirty. Two billion dollars and I I I'm kind of annoyed by this. But it's Kinda funny just to point out that therefore pe ratio is four hundred. Thirty five right now and to Yahoo Finance has them as overvalued but I do think I do think the virus I mean the upshot of this is that because all the flights are being canceled. You know a ton of conferences. We just heard today that F. Eight the big facebook developer's conference were hearing. People are pulling out of the game developers conference. Sf next month GTC. There's even talk about Tokyo Olympics later this summer possibly being cancelled. I think we're actually going to see a huge gift around remote work. We talk about remote work. We've seen a lot of companies in recent justed around in a company. That's doing like remote conferences. But I think the virus is really going to force companies and decision makers to really ask like. Do you need to fly to do the sales meeting? Do you need to fly to this conference to learn something? Do you need to drive to a seminar and I? I do think we're going to see a shift in the economy where people go actually remote. We're Kinda works okay. We're we have tools and and and it's changed a lot last decade. Yeah I mean won't people might not know this but tech crunch itself as relatively remote I organization and my work history has been majority remote. I worked for with the next web for my first four years as a journalist and they were based in Amsterdam and I was in Chicago and then SF. I never went to the actual office once in that time period so to me this is relatively normal but I think for a lot of folks. He's always been discussed point. Not a re- realize reality so I'll be curious to see if that does work up. Certainly zoom other future of products and other companies. That kind of service people that are not in the same room might do well. I would say given zooms rapid value appreciation that racine's active trading as opposed to fundamental value. But certainly it's a stock to keep in mind if you haven't caught up on what's going on with red at Wall Street beds and the Stock Market. Take a look. It's kind of fun if you WANNA get a window into how the chat rooms of the nineties that helped pump stocks have now turned into semi closed at four. It's quite adventure zoom. I'm not saying it's part of that pump and dump world but it reminds me of some of the value appreciation. We've seen at other stocks that have him in the last couple of months. I think you know this is a question around Tesla. We brought up in a bunch of other stocks. Might take away from that is if you're trading over the counter OTC stocks penny stocks. Okay fine there's not a lot of liquidity. You can actually do a lot on the ticket and whatnot stocks. Let's zoom as an example thirty two billion market CAP company. You have to have a lot of money to move that share price one way or the other. If you're maybe maybe everyone's long and therefore like almost no one's willing to to sell and so therefore your your price gets kind of moved higher and higher but my my assumption is that that's not true and certainly for most of these big tech companies like Microsoft near trillion dollar market cap company. Like ain't no one can you. Can you can be you know. Warren Buffett Go. I'm going to buy the whole stock and the stock price will early move. That's the scale. I think we're talking about love the shares so it might change as the Margaret hits volatility and and whatnot but to me. It was blown way out of proportion. Well I hope so. That would mean there's less manipulation the stock market in values and more reasonable. So let's hope you're right but it is a fun story regardless but let's move along away from the main public markets to talk about a company that wants to join public company world which door dash after quite a long time of hearing to this company will go public kind of a needed win for both. Softbank And the Vision Fund Jordache filed confidentially to go public. And Danny. I want you to tell us the difference between filing to go public and filing privately to go public yes for companies that are under about a billion in revenue the jobs act plenty twelve allows startups to file basically there s one without having to do it publicly so generally speaking in the process you file publicly which means you literally to the web and then the SEC gives you feedback on that dock. You might make changes some some individual if you remember like what was a community adjusted revenue or some of these may not it was community adjusted so it was adjusted. Eba which is already super chested. Right brave ever GonNa give back on that. This purchase designed to encourage companies to go public earlier at least get feedback on there. S ones and to do it in such way like if if the numbers don't turn out well or some things get blocked by the SEC. You have time to sort of recover without kind of embarrassing yourself in public. The reason we actually find out about most of these confidential s ones that the bankers know that they're going to become real public wants and so the file confidentially then leaked to the press and go. Gee someone somewhere has filed something things about this one. Why would the companies do this? Well if you let these file privately when they're smaller it lets them a decrease in the amount of risk they take on making the on ramp to public markets have been easier and the number of companies has fallen sharply in the last. I forget the timeframe like ten twenty years. So this is a way to help. Bolster that number again and also with if you recall back to Osama's private IPO file or private direct listing filing. I guess technically they are putting out press releases saying we've done this. So they're they're filing privately telling you publicly they will go public but it's private for now and that's very twenty twenty but it's also. Kinda key dynamic to understand you look at the IPO market for this year. Now announcing your stealth fundraise. Yes very much like saying we have cool things over here. You may not see them. You're exactly it's the it's the sneaker drop it's yes it's the sneaker. That's the thing when shoes come out for a short period of time. I'm not cool. I turned thirty. I lost all ability to have coolness anymore. Now We're both in our thirties. Now which I think means that will never be cool again on door dash though Danny mentioned that if you have less than a certain amount of revenue you can file privately. Keep in mind that door dashes right about the sides so we have a suspicion that this was kind of the end of the time period in which they could file privately. Because they're about to be to Lart so let's get into the numbers and talk a little bit about what we have here. The company is worth around thirteen billion. But which is a large number not the most valuable private companies have ever seen we work at its Peak Uber Pre IPO. Those were both larger but certainly a decca corn and evaluate company. The company was valued at one point. Four billion in two thousand eighteen to give you understand how fast it's appreciated in value and that is driven by tons and tons of private capital often come in through the lens started after lengthy accounts of Division Fund but the company has attracted capital firm Kleiner and sequoia throughout its history. So a lot of backers. Put a lot of money this company for different reasons at different stages. But it's welland and it has some comps so we're not talking about a company completely abstract Danny. Just run us through some quickly and then we'll talk about its results. Yeah so I think the the the big cop here is so you know Oberlin public. We now have a lot of data from ubereats which is one of its sub business lines but in Q. Four thousand nine hundred ending December.
Revenues rise at Uber but it is still losing money
"Moving onto Uber. Uber reported it. Lost Sixty four cents per share in q four on revenue a four point. Oh seven billion dollars.

It looks like Uber is on plan at least as far as rides go ubereats pizzas still younger business but but rides as you slow growth.

Unfortunately Liam out of the zone. It's it's been a real challenge living my life these days but but all kidding aside that has been and I mean from everyone I know who uses an Uber or lift her any sort of ridesharing company but to get that food delivery. I mean that is actually actually the sweet spots and that I believe is where the company is going to continue to grow and ubereats on is in the early part where it's losing money Uber Rides if you look at Ebay da which is a way of looking. You know taking out some some costs that aren't associated with operations actually profitable already.
Uber Sells India Food Business to Zomato to Cut Losses
"News from the weekend came from hoover which announced that it is selling. Its Uber eats business. In India to a company called Zoom auto the move marks yet another retrenchment by the American ride hailing company as it hopes to move closer to profitability now. Zumbado is buying breeze. India in Uber calls a All stock stock transaction which gives Uber a nine point nine nine percent ownership in zoo motto. That doesn't feel like a lot so let's talk about whose motto is. What company company managed to get Uber Eats India for small percentage of itself? Well the motto is what Uber described as quote one of the largest food apps in India and according to my research is this morning it has raised over nine hundred million dollars according to quench base data. Now this is kind of fun. It's funding history includes a series A. B. See D E F G Age I N J rounds followed by a corporate round and private equity round. Now some of that might be scrammed. Little bit in the history telling but it's an insane amount of money from people exequatur capital and financial and Tomasa Holdings so. This company has raised a Jillion in dollars. Now the context here's Uber has given up on large parts of the global market for services over time. You remember it son. It's ride hailing business in China given up on ride hailing Russia and now food delivery in India. I bring up those three examples because they're enormous markets. The context for this is simple. Uber needs to lose less money. Money and as it turns out while Ubereats is a pretty cool place for it to play around the world. It's a very expensive business for the recently public company. So kind of awake goes and bits and pieces is now how quickly Uber can grow. It's total business will shedding some loss. Making entities is the next question. There's more turmoil. However in the food delivery market with GRUB HUB BOB? Another business that you've probably heard up under pressure in the United States to other cell itself or do something and of course there's post maids which still hasn't publicly filed and isn't really really technically for sale even though it is to find an acquirer summary Food delivery is a damn business. Good Luck Jordache.
The world has never been more convenient. What is that doing to us?
"As it sounds like the invention of canned beans. We've gone to canned goods than we invented washing machine. Everything we have done has been about making our lives easier that in and of itself is not about thing. It's very good thing but with a i technology the options now are making our choices the matter of lifting a finger instead of actually physically washing the walking to a washing machine gene and doing the actual labor. We're not doing labor anymore. We're not doing anything that requires some effort some thinking some inconvenience everything we're choosing and everything that's being offered to us is about making life easier simpler and frankly less rewarding. Is there a threshold somewhere that we crossed because to your point. I don't think anybody would argue that. The invention of the dishwasher or washing machine was a bad thing but there's it's gotta be a line somewhere where it goes from things that are freeing us up to make the most of our time to things that are actively discouraging us from interacting interacting with the world. Will i think if you think about it think about the technology that is available when you take something as basic as social media area and how pervasive it is it appalls me when i'm walking home from work and i see pretty much i would say ninety five percent of the people walking with their face into their their phones not looking at anybody on the street not bothering to see which direction they're going. They just kind of do it like they're a bunch of drones walking down the sidewalk and even that it's just we are so programmed to be osman's. Almost it's now. I think that's the threshold and it's only people that are a little bit alarmed by the fact that menial chores banality l'idee things like that are actually something to embrace instead of something to shun. They're the ones that i think are going to kind of lead a counter revolution and take back some of the the more boring stuff of their life and find satisfaction in it that gets at what i was going to ask you next 'cause i can't and i hope i'm i hope i'm only speaking for myself but i don't think that i am i can't find satisfaction in walking four blocks to pick up my food when it could just be brought brought to me or to use your example. I don't find any satisfaction in assembling furniture like i will pay just moved. I will pay whatever it costs to not do that and i don't know when my brain switched and maybe it was just because it became an option not to have to yeah i get your point but do you find satisfaction picking up your phone and ordering something online like. Does it make you happy to have food delivered to your doorstep. Stop instead of taking the time the thought and the preparation in buying your groceries actually spending the time to prepare para dish that you've thought about and put care into. I don't know if you've kids or if you have a family but do you actually get satisfaction out of feeding your kids is giving them a great meal hearing them say dad while that was a great dinner. Thank you so much. I would love to hear say that for the record but she's not going to know no. I i do find that when you go to the market and buy your vegetables in the morning and spend the afternoon cooking you take more time with your food food to taste it to experience it. <hes> and you want the people around you to figure out the word enjoy it. Yes yeah you feel much better about it right and and i guess what fascinated me about your piece is trying to figure out what that is actually doing to us the process of not engaging like it's one thing to say like garden even notice that i i ordered my and i ate it but do we know what that is doing to us. What toll that takes well. I think i interviewed i. I think she's in the story. Her name was making caselli and she's a stand up comedian in toronto and i absolutely loved what she said so she he told me how her and her partner east love getting up in the morning they'd have piece of paper sitting on their counter instead of itemize list plugged into their phone and they would have things to do like pick up the dry cleaning <hes> maybe go by some fresh flowers at the market things like <hes> they would walk around. They would say hi to their neighbors. They would maybe stop for lunch may be discovering new cafe where they had a really great cup of coffee and instead she said that all the do now is basically sit it or lay in bed with their phones and take off the boxes by ordering things that they might need and they don't do that kind dove lisi meandering wandering around the neighborhood where they <hes> actually meet people face to face and have a conversation sation. She just finds that her saturdays in her sundays are way more dull and they're not as fulfiling how do we we start to convince ourselves to do these things. You mentioned that there. Someone's gotta start a mini revolution about reclaiming the pleasure in everyday activities activities. Where does that begin. I think i think really if you look around. You're already see it beginning <hes> the artisan community <hes> when it comes to food food farm-to-table cuisine. There's a big push. There's a lot of people that are actually really making an effort now to <hes> get to local the markets and do that kind of shopping support the local <hes> farmers. There's there's a there's a growing swell swell of individuals who care about the people that actually put in time sweat tears into making products or produce or whatever it is that they are giving to us. They're taking the time to say okay. I'm gonna make an effort to come to you and those kinds of businesses are actually flourishing. <hes> this one lady after i wrote the p. she she sent me an email and it was really thoughtful and she said the one thing that you didn't think about was how how all of these click bait options. I e anything you can click on to get delivered to you immediately. She said they're destroying. Small towns sounds all the tiny retailers mom and pop shops that you stu subsist because of people being loyal to them coming to them. They're starting to disappear now. It's not just because of convenience per se. It's also because of big box retailers ars but that's an earlier form of convenience. You know with the big box. Go there do everything all in one swoop. That was just another incarnation nation of the you know the rollout of convenience that has been chugging along for the last hundred years that god knows what level it will get to with with technology. Do we have any idea how quickly the click an order and get it off. The internet economy is growing well well. I think if you consider just the <hes> amount of purchases that are done on the web so in the worldwide for instance stints almost two point nine trillion dollars was purchased last year in canada alone were expected double what we did in two thousand sixteen and by this year will have spend forty billion dollars online so is growing exponentially and with services like amazon ebay. All of those different ones will even them more conventional couriers like u._p._s. and fedex etcetera. They're all trying to find a way to go to zero emissions and make things a little bit more environmental friendly in my piece. I didn't wanna hammer on about the environmental impact talked. All the easy choices were making but there's absolutely no question that everything that we're doing when we're relying more on airplanes since on vans to bring us things. All these things are taking a toll on the environment just this morning. I was reading the paper and there's a new book out by tatiana schlossberg. That's caroline kennedy's a daughter who's was a science reporter for the new york times and she's just written a book about <hes> this very phenomenon and she calls the inconspicuous consumption and it's about the environmental impact that you don't know oh you have and i have not read it but i'm going to and it what makes me happy. What makes me feel better is that all of these things are starting to be written. People are starting to think about all of this stuff in a much more concerted and wholesome way. I guess who do you you think or where do you think i guess we first documented how far we'd come in the race for convenience and how much could cost us. When did we start to realize just how far we were going. I don't think we've realized that yet <hes>. I don't think that most people even even give it. A second thought. I was shocked at the response at the story. I wrote about convenience had what was it was overwhelming. It was bizarre really really because it was a topic that nobody has thought about that said there are some there are people who are far more learned learning than i am who are starting to write <hes> fascinating essays in places like the new york times and the atlantic all these publications that are starting according to examine the tyranny of convenience and how we need to start thinking about the choices we make instead of always opting for something that is almost a mindless thing to do. We should maybe start making our lives a little bit more difficult and by that i mean maybe we should not order from ubereats and maybe we should actually walk two blocks and go to the grocery store and maybe we should take an hour and make a meal for our family while maybe they stand around and actually talk to you and you have a conversation with your child about her day her homework. I'm sure you do that anyway. But wouldn't it be nice if she just kind of hung out with you while you showed her how to make a dish that otherwise she she would never know how to make because you just ordered in one of the things that stopped me and my tracks from your piece the same way you've gotten that response is i think we've talked about all the individual aspects of what you describe on this podcast. We've certainly talked about social media addiction and what it does to us. We've definitely talked about packaging waste and what the the proliferation of plastics have done to the planet and we've talked about how we don't connect in person anymore like we've done episodes on all those topics but we've never put it together to to figure out what's at the root of it and to realize that your motivations for doing all those things that aren't good for you are simply convenience and laziness. This is a tough thing to grapple with and i think it's it's a hard sell to convince people to go backwards. That's a really good point. I don't think it anybody is advocating to go backwards. I don't think that's it at all. I think it is instead of moving forward at at such. A breakneck speed always putting yourself. I always making sure that you're choosing to do things that require the least amount of energy and effort on your part. I think that all people are trying to say is every once in a while. Put the brakes on. Take takes some time. Grab a hobby this wonderful <hes> writer. His name is tim wu. He's a lawyer columbia. He said when you think about it. Hobbies are really a waste of time. Why would you build a model car when you can go out and buy one well the point is you to build the model car because you get satisfaction of using your brain and actually figuring out how to put it together. You me an example of something you've done. Since you wrote this piece that you wouldn't have done before you wrote it. Well one thing i am doing but i didn't do it today to get here because i always under hurry and after go somewhere after her work but i have been i live at <hes> a busy intersection in toronto and i have been walking to the rom role winter you museum picking up one of the city bikes biking it on one of the multiple blake bike lanes that are in this city now and doing doing it to work and coming home the same way that's one thing i did not do before the other thing that i am actively doing is. I am looking for the farmers markets. I am trying to find those smaller. <hes> vendors who need my dollars versus a lob laws or a whole foods are so eas who really doesn't isn't. I'm trying to do those kind of things and the other thing that i i am actively doing now is i'm trying to grow my own vegetables. I live in a condo. I have started a vegetable garden on the balcony and i get so much the joy out of going out there and watching you know the tomato start to grow <hes>. I guess the main thing i've done is i've just kind slowed down a bit and just done some few more things. You'll fashioned way exco gail mcdonald feature writer at the globe globe in mail.
Restaurant apps are changing the way we eat
"Hiring is challenging but there's one place you can go. We're hiring is simple and smart. That place is ziprecruiter where growing businesses connect to qualified candidates. It's try it for free. At ziprecruiter dot com slash tech talk ziprecruiter the smartest way to hire so alex kanter was born in the kitchen kitchen <hes> as one of the members of the family of the canter's deli iconic l._a. Institution and now he has a firm that helps restaurants the deal with the onslaught of online ordering alex. Thanks for being here so tell us tell us about what is happening at the restaurants. People are going less or or people are hungry in that leaving the home what's happening. Well you pretty much nailed. Near description of the restaurant. Landscape is changing their seven hundred thousand thousand brick and mortar restaurants here in the u._s. And every restaurant is now faced with this challenge. It's an opportunity but it's a challenge to adapt their business for or delivery and what that means is drivers showing up to pick up food. That's placed on ordering apps like ubereats and post meets endured ash and consumer behavior is shifting and people are eating from restaurants more often but it's not always in person it's through these apps and the replacing cooking at home home with opening up grub pressing one button and having food come to the door come to their office just a more convenient way way to connect with your favorite restaurant and it's it's a challenge that canter's deli. My family's restaurant has been faced away and really in two thousand nine when the recession hit us. Our foot traffic was down ten percent. We were forced to figure out new ways to reach customers. I experimented and signed up with all these different online ordering platforms starting with grub hub in the twenty four and fourteen online ordering platforms later thirty percent of our business. Today is now on these delivery companies as a restaurant. That's open twenty four hours. A day canter's i elliott it's been been around since nineteen thirty one started by my great grandfather. Ben kanner and it's been in my family for four generations. My grandfather worked there sixty five five years. My dad pretty much dropped out of high school to take over the family business and he hasn't looked back since and his sister does the hiring and firing his cousin does the accounting really a family business and i grew up working. They're very young age as well. My job was to adapt the business just like everyone else in my family family and along the way we discovered that there's a lot of technology that we needed to bring into the business including our first point of sale sale system having a mobile friendly website just minor updates to bring it into the next generation and delivery was a big component of that but it was very very challenging as a restaurant actually operate fulfill those orders. We're messing up. Orders left and right drivers were showing up to pick up food that that hadn't even been made yet and ultimately we realized we needed a better way to plug into these revenue streams and get the order information information flowing directly into the kitchen rather than to the tablets that were in the front of the house. We had a wall of technology nine tablets laptops laptops and a fax machine just to manage all these incoming orders so you have a company called order bark. We're hearing culver city at your offices order. Mark is the piece of hardware that goes into the restaurants. Tell everybody yes so. I started order mark in january of twenty seventeen with my co founders to solve the exact problem and what we do is we built consolidation device. It's a one tablet and one printer that can go into a kitchen that takes orders from different online ordering platform standardizes the incoming data and feeds it into a single flow directly into the kitchen so today we work with thousands of restaurants nationwide from mom and pops up to very large chains like sonic subway and what we're doing is we're giving them. We're shipping them a single device that they can receive all of these different orders from anwr actually beyond consolidating the orders were plugging them in to all of the online ordering companies that are relevant and the zip code from a restaurant owner listening right now and i say that sounds great how much so this so we charge just a fixed fixed monthly fee on how many locations you have and where you're located. It's about one hundred bucks a month. Per location is where it starts and it it really allows you to receive additional orders because you're being plug into more revenue streams and most of our restaurants actually make out that one hundred bucks a month on the first day of each month alex kanter order marc canter family.

Postmates CEO Addresses Rumors of a Possible Sale
"We're going to start with what we're calling the I._P._O.. Update and I think I'M GONNA kick this off by talking a little bit about post mates one of the I dunno better known delivery companies I would say and but one that hasn't made as much noise lately as ubereats or door dash but one thing that <hes> equity listeners I'm sure members that posts has filed privately to go public and so when in a post meets the Boston showed up at the Fortune Event Kate what was the name of the Fortune Event Fortune Brain Fortune brainstorm. I think he was there and he gave an interview and he was talking about two things that are relevant our interest one is the I._P._O.. which he says is still you know they still want to do that? So it's on on the table is still and also he answered questions about some of the rumors swirling around concerning maybe selling bits instead of going public and I just wanted to kind of summarize summarize what he said and I hope I get this right but effectively he said you know when you are setting your company up to go public. You often get a lot of inbound and that comment was interesting because it points out that at least as he phrased it posts wasn't going to sell itself people weren't said coming to wit trying to buy and that's it. Might you kate a position of strength as opposed to one of weakness. Does that make sense yeah I mean it's not a bad place to be to have offers coming in for acquisitions. I'm kind of curious. <hes> a what those offers look like be how seriously offers were and see why post meets <hes> wouldn't take an acquisition offer because I think I mean I'm a bit skeptical how successful of an I._P._O.. Post mates can have at this point just given I mean not only like the the legacy of Blue Apron but also just how much uber has struggled and food delivery companies don't really have the reputation of of managing to scale and continue to have success. I feel like it wouldn't be the worst thing for post meets to sell. What do you think well? It just depends a a what price and and you know. I'm dying to see the one because I've I've heard that like what you just said. I've also heard that things are better than I think. I've also heard that some companies in the sector have Martin's that are terrifying so I feel like I don't have enough pieces to construct the puzzle but Bostian E._S._p._N.. or Bosnia's he goes by on twitter did say that his company was growing faster than Uber eats in Grub so at least well you know maybe you don't presenters basis. I don't know but I thought that was interesting and we can leave it there. I just wanted to kind of bring it up as a flag Mike for Everyone because eventually pose will end up as a major topic on the show and that's kind of bread crumb along the way
Amazon to End Its Restaurant Delivery Service
"Restaurants, in the US is shutting down in case. You're wondering, like what? Yeah. Well following November's culture of Amazon's restaurant delivery business in London. The company is now shutting down operations in US the service, which was launched back in fall of two thousand fifteen was designed to give prime members another perk away to order, meals, not just products and groceries through the ecommerce giant, but obviously kind of got squashed by all the competition going on, including grub hub ubereats door dash and deliver in London among others, and in some cases, they would even discounter services in order to win market, share. Amazon, meanwhile, has largely failed to establish itself as a significant player in restaurant, delivering both market share consumer mind share, it's not the first name people think of when they're looking to order food, or blunts, your dinner, whatever. And the logistics of delivering hot meals in timely fashion. Introduces a whole new set of concerns that go beyond Amazon's core, focus areas, which is. Probably a good thing. So Amazon restaurant, also be shuttering workplace lunch delivery service daily dish. So they made the decision to exit to focus more on his growing grocery delivery business, obviously. So in case you never heard about it. Don't worry. You won't have to worry about it. You can you go. Enjoy your grub hub your Uber. Eats, your door to ask your deliver ru and Amazon can just liver grocery. It's here door.
Uber reports $1 billion loss in first post-IPO quarterly results
"Uber's I report as a public company and it was a doozy. And by that I mean Uber. Lost a billion dollars in just ninety days. Jason, we've seen unprofitable startups lose money and investors will still buy the shares. You look at the stock Uber's basically flat on Friday, and that tells me among other things that they're not really doing anything just yet to get Wall Street excited. I mean, I think that's a fair statement. I think the story for investors when it comes to. It's figuring out all of the different ways they can leverage this network to make money. And so today, that's the rideshare business. That's new mobility, scooters. Uber eats business, super freight. These are all pieces to that overall puzzle for me. I mean the twenty percent topline growth a navy. My expectations were just a little bit higher that seemed kind of you know not not nothing to write home about. But by the same token grows bookings, Rupp thirty four percent to fourteen point six billion dollars trips grew thirty six percent. And that's good as well. I think if if you look at the call certainly the theme was ubereats. I think that's where they're really seeing the biggest opportunity at least in the near term gross bookings for that side of the business, where three point one billion dollars. It was up one hundred seventeen percent excluding currency. They have two hundred twenty thousand restaurants on board with that network. The thing is with food delivery. There's the economics of it can be tricky. There are expenses in maintaining that network. It's not always a no brainer for the restaurants either in in. We're seeing grub hub dealing. Some of those challenges as more of the pure play there. So I mean I, I you as an impressive businesses an impressive network. I think with a lot of potential. They're going to have to figure out as they go along away to become profitable with these four main drivers. I know a lot of people are looking towards those self driving cars thinking, that's really the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow just got to recognize that still at least a decade away, feeling people who are thinking that we're going to be surrounded by these self-driving cars in the next few years, just a naive point of view in my, my opinion I could be wrong. Of course. I saw some interesting analysts comm comments that price competition with lift might be dying down. Which would be good for them would increase take rates, which is the amount of money that Uber can keep after after paying drivers. So, you know profitability must be right around the corner, if, if the corners on the moon, but, you know, when you don't have profits you talk about the path to profitability, that's the big word and path to profitability for me is just a euphemism for we don't make any money. And, you know, I don't know how to the stock if they don't make money, well, but to that point, I mean you go back to the top line revenue, Jason, it may, I think if Uber had come out in this quarter and grown top line revenue. Forty percent fifty percent, something like that. I think that just Wall Street a little bit more extended as you said, twenty percents, it's like well, that's fine.
Uber unveils IPO with warning it may never make a profit
"Our first story was getting ready to IPO, and it just made lift kind of that classic older bigger brothers. Situates rollback bring Jack back to thanksgiving. Like the small Turkey lift is smaller, it's younger. It's trying really hard to impress its parents. And then Uber comes in. And does this boom shows up with a perfect report card? So here's what happened. Thanks to a Reuters exclusive report, we know that Uber plans to file for its today at a valuation of one hundred billion dollars pick that number. And it means shares are gonna be priced in a nice little range of forty eight dollars to fifty five dollars. When it offers them on the public Martin Uber's planning to issue ten billion dollars worth of new shares. And with that money, it's going to take over the on taking over the world. Pinky. And we also know that the IPO is expected to be an early main urkel count. Let's get back to that number one hundred billion really important because when we thought about it, we we wrote it down on a whiteboard we were staring at this number looks different than we expected. Yeah. We're in a privileged position that we can complain one hundred billion isn't enough or Uber. But it's because we were anchored to one hundred twenty billion. I love that word anchored by stats what? Goldman Sachs Morgan Stanley told Uber. It was worth a few months ago. Exactly those investment banks come in. They say, hey, we want your business. We wanna help you IPO. And by the way, you look amazing total brown-nosing injure edible. You look like I dunno worth Eur one hundred twenty billion dollars over was smoothed by all that nice speak from Goldman picked one hundred twenty billion. But now after what happened with lift the past couple of weeks, the number has come down to one hundred billion, and guess what it kind of makes sense because about four times bigger than very true. Uber has global aspirations and Uber does more than just ride house bigger. My Monday night ubereats Rahman bowl can tell you all about great food delivers. So jack. What's the takeaway? For buddies over. Uber endless lift is struggling and Uber's investment bankers are notice they're not just noticing the looking at this like, you know, what we kind of want to avoid the situation in may. Yeah. So lift was am bishops as hell with their IPO. They set the price pretty high very shares rose up to eighty dollars on the first day of training. But then as of yesterday they've fallen all the way down to sixty dollars a share that is twenty five percent lower than day one. And one more thing for you lift has this whole other issue right now where Morgan Stanley the investment Bank that brought them public has apparently been helping investors sell their shares early investors want supposed to be selling and lift is not happy about it. Uber wants to avoid this whole thing by maybe being a little more conservative on the share price to prevent this fall

And that's that's the thing about it. It does not matter. What you do? It's not matter what you wear. It does not matter what you have on. It does not matter because the thing about boys boys are not bought up embrace at least to the best of my knowledge. There may have Meraj boys on that raised to be considered a sexual object. Yes, you women, but. Men are not you are not men are not told to protect yourself win. Which is that boys ought to be raised to. Hey, you know, what? Since since we got these rules. Protect yourself. If you don't wanna get get get somebody cruiser rate. Protect yourself. Don't put your. I'll tell you kinda talking about two different things. I think so boys are not tied.

We we actually admonished boys right in that situation. You didn't wanna have sex with a what an older woman that was trying to have sex. We make them feel like are you like all that kinda shit? They can fuck them up to. Yeah. But the other thing is because of our culture boys are not typically pursued in a way that girls are taught to be and forced to be pursued by the either say, exciting, whatever like girls are just considered to be like, oh, do you approach a girl, it, it doesn't work that way for boys? So so that's why they're not taught to you know, to protect themselves and all these different come home from the party at this time, go to the bathroom with a group of guys.

They're not we agree. I'm only add into your point. You ask them. Ask me a question. And I'm I I'm saying, yes, exactly. And then also is is is not even it's not even close to the same.

That's it and mostly men committing these acts. So the the boys are the ones we have to protect. You know, and what the administration is colonised story process. The proposed rules aimed to signify a hands legal protections for the accused and reflect the sentiment expressed by President Trump that men are unfairly being presumed guilty more than a year in the making the rules replace Obama era policies on how to implement title nine the law, barring gender discrimination in schools that get federal funding several things one how many people that are so anti Obama have done nothing. But make sure that he is placing history will be confirmed as an excellent eight years of presidency. Excellent one of the most progressive people of all time that they you have done that to this world with thou our views of o or on voting Republican, or is I we need a businessman nothing, but made him to say that we aren't fair when it comes to how we judge president's. You have made it unfair. You are part of the reason they won't be. Affair that. That's thickens me the other part of it. This was something that we knew could happen. We knew as the country the sexual assaulter in chief told you how he felt about sexual assault and for you to come and be like, I'm ally. Advocate. I support believe women. Take your fucking shirt off. Delete Facebook posts and your tweets stout egging. Like, you somebody's ally in defense or anything you nothing. 'cause when it comes down to what you would let this happen to our country. You are as Lilly fine with this. You know, none of this shit is written in stone title nine was not written in stone. Didn't design way Obama added layers of protection the same way that fucking Biden and Obama were fucking outright. I'm a feminist outright. Actual campus assault is real it is fucking crisis. We will never have that in the White House again with the attitude of whatever and two thousand to coin all this shit matter. If if as me 'cause 'cause I shouldn't even have to be reading about this because it shouldn't happen. This is due bid. The new rules are drawn both the plaza anger applause from fucking ripe as Republicans in mean and anger from the people who have to live as terrorized only got them canvases. Sorry.

You just want a reason to hit a woman if you are actually defendant is and there's something in you, this this behavior is okay because ours are most men are not endanger around women, they're not period. They're not you're not endanger most women busy cly cannot overpower. You is not the fact that it doesn't happen, and that does not exist. But it's a rare instance that a man will take his power to overpower a woman and not or whatever because he's fucking threatening his life. No. Also, there's more trash, okay, guys.

That's I mean, you talk to most men they talk about right? The first thing they say, they're scared of being falsely accused the right? They don't care. They don't ever make it beyond that point. They don't care about the actual. It's like why people say the most worst. You can call somebody is our word rices as like that. That's what how did you become the victim in this?

She had admitted herself to say Anthony north health campus hospital for alcoholism police were called when hospital staff accuser attempting to steal some items as though that's when the officers showed up he asked a as hospital like Don press charges on where I'll take care I'll give a ride home. And that's when we started the won miss she returned to the hospital the next day and told them I got sexual assault it hours from Broomfield police were called hospital to bring a rape kit.

You don't call up. The problem, you call police the problem, you know, it could be actually fucking video own in.

And then women go wide you defending if you're not a rapist, if if you don't participate in these any functions, and nobody around you participated in these functions you do now you because you're privileged being demand.

Well, if you truly do believe that then you will also say that comes responsibility with that power. Right. And that responsibility would be I'm not going to inflict harm on somebody. When there's a better way out and society in in large has not accepted that but in small micro situations like this where there's a video we have play by those rules, which is he shouldn't have did this shit.
