DoorDash, Grubhub, others offer better tech to appease business with restaurants

America's love for take-out is spurring a boom in food delivery startups. But what's convenient for customers may not be good for restaurants. The fees associated with delivery service apps leave some restaurants saying fees the meals they send out for delivery are unprofitable. Now, delivery companies are responding with new capabilities that they say make delivery more worthwhile for restaurants. They're doing business with new technology platforms that will manage orders into restaurant sales systems, speed up payments and offer delivery through a restaurant’s own website. The digital platforms promise to speed up the receipt of orders by the restaurants, and let the delivery services know faster when a driver can come pick them up.
