When Did the McDonald's Franchise Become a Suicide Pact?

As to the delivery economics, Uber will pay the driver the $4.99 delivery fee per order. UBER will charge the McD store a 15% service fee. McD will collect full rent and service fees on everything but the delivery(driver) fee. Uber WINS. McD WINS. Operator LOSES. Thanks to the NLC for endorsing this profit losing program. This was CONFIRMED at the Gallery Walk by our NLC rep.

15% is the low end, some regions have fees much higher than that.

For the regions that are still not on the home delivery, other than a stay at home convenience for the paying guests and little money for O/O's, what other challenges exists that can be shared?

One challenge is what competitors do for their franchise owners. I can't imagine Dunkin', Subway or BK franchises agreeing to this rip off

I can't imagine any business person going for such a deal. What's the point of giving away your profits? But hey, do it for the brand, right?

I came across an anonymous poster on a blog this week who thought that all McDonald's stores had a 25% bottom line. Maybe it was someone who works in Oak Brook. Maybe the President of MCD USA?

Thanks again to the NLC for putting more small Operators out of business so they can buy their stores. A large multiple can absorb the losses on delivery better that a 2 or 3 store O/O. Where do we go to NOT sign up?

Whats just as bad is that UBEReats only pays the Operator ONCE A WEEK, not daily. Great for cash flow Huh?? Ask the Florida operators, thats a FACT. Why am I floating UBER an interest free loan??

Where do you guys think Oak Brook gets their cut of those fees?

From the delivery charge or from the deduction taken from the Operator?
