DC Council to consider capping commission fees of food delivery companies

San Francisco announced a similar fee cap on delivery companies like DoorDash and Postmates in April.

WASHINGTON — A lot of D.C. restaurants are relying on third-party companies to make their food deliveries as the coronavirus continues to spread across the District.

Sprig and Sprout, a Vietnamese restaurant in Glover Park, says most of its orders are deliveries, not carryout.

“People just want delivery and so if you’re not on the [third-party] platforms, you are at a disadvantage,” she said Sprig and Sprout owner Jennifer Hoang.
