Delivery dollars are making up a growing portion of restaurant sales year-over-year. In fact, Technomic’s 2018 Next-Level Off-Premise Multi-Client Study found that 52% of operators say their delivery sales have increased in the past year, with an average increase of 20%.

With more off-premise orders to handle, some restaurants may be feeling a crunch—not enough drivers, or no drivers at all, can present a big problem. If restaurants can’t or don’t want to hire employees to manage delivery orders, there’s always the option of working with a third-party delivery platform. But with that option, it’s crucial to work with the right partner. With an array of third-party delivery platforms to choose from, how can restaurants be sure that they’re finding the right fit?

Answering these five questions can help you decide whether or not the service you’re considering is right for you.
