‘Parasites’: Restaurants ask customers to shun services like Uber Eats

Restaurants in Australia’s biggest cities have started speaking out against food delivery services such as Uber Eats and Menulog, claiming the third-party operators are exploiting small businesses and delivery drivers.

On Tuesday, iconic Melbourne eatery Marios Cafe called the food delivery platforms “parasites”, imploring customers to never use ordering systems like Uber Eats. In Sydney,  Upper North Shore restaurant Taste of Texas BBQ stopped accepting delivery requests via Menulog.

The moves come days after delivery service Foodora signalled it was exiting the Australian market.
