Hungry? There's An App For That

Soon, the days of actually getting in your car to get take-out will be over, and for parts of SWFL that time has already come. App-based food delivery services have been rolling out in Lee County all year, but what are they exactly? And how are they different from your typical delivery?

App-based food delivery services are third-party companies, which partner with restaurants to offer delivery, particularly from restaurants that don’t already offer door-to-door service.

Tired of Chinese food? Try Thai. Want to get fast food instead of pizza? McDonald’s now delivers. Food delivery companies, like Uber Eats or Bite Squad, promise to bring you your favorite meals. As with many other services, there’s a charge.

Are you willing to put a price on getting to stay home or working through your lunch? These services seem to think so too, especially if you’re in Lee County – the only place in SWFL where these apps are currently offered.

Watch our video for the full download. If you’ve already started using the apps, let us know what you think in the comments!
