Before Uber IPO, McDonald's Pushes for Lower Fees

As structured there is no reason that O/Os should want to promote or increase delivery sales. If it's not a profitable sale I don't want it in my restaurants. I know leadership is working on this but I have little faith that they can make improvements to the deal MCD Corp. made with Uber.

The UBER fee is only part of the problem. The fact that MCD, our GREEDY franchisor , collects rent and service fees on Ubers commission is abominable!

And the recently negotiated structure from MCD is USELESS unless you have a high volume of orders.

WOW. I just spent $390,000 remodeling my store and now Uber will steal customers from me in store?

Ridiculous

MCD is NOT OUR PARTNER!

I think Uber is still the largest ride-sharing service in the world. McDonald's Corp will be more worried about their global relationship with Uber than USA operator profits.

We have a small Victory, the Rent & Service will Be removed from the UBER commission. It will come back to you each month just like the Happy Meal rebate. Remember I said a small victory. Still working on Chargebacks.

Door Dash, Grubhub, and Postmates are ALL CHEAPER than Uber!

And yes Richard, at our last BLS they stated that delivery IS going on OPNAD

Uber still owns the customer data. That is the second biggest problem with the deal after charging rent and fees on the commission and credit card fees.

You didn't spend $390,000.00 remodeling YOUR store. You spent $390,000.00 remodeling their store. They own it and its value as a piece of real estate increased by your efforts and investment. Don't think they don't have your investment appraised to document the value added for them. If financed the Bank is also making a profit on your efforts. It is becoming increasingly rare for additional sales from a remodel to service the new debt. Little remains for the operator except if you don't do it they will be unhappy with you.
