Inslee announces cap on third-party delivery fees to help restaurants

November 19, 2020

Gov. Jay Inslee today announced a new cap on fees charged to restaurants by third-party delivery platforms, such as Uber Eats, DoorDash, GrubHub, Postmates and others. 

“We recognize the challenges posed by COVID-19 to our restaurant community, and we’re grateful to third party delivery platforms that have made it possible for Washingtonians to continue supporting local restaurants, and allowed many businesses to stay open,” Inslee said.

“However, these are difficult times. We all must sacrifice during these uniquely challenging times to both support our businesses and slow the spread of COVID-19. We encourage Washingtonians to support their local restaurants safely through delivery and take-out options that are available.”

The proclamation caps delivery fees at 15% and total fees at 18% of the purchase price of an order. Third party delivery platforms have seen increased usage as fewer people are dining indoors this year due to health restrictions and concerns over contracting COVID-19.

The proclamation is similar to measures taken in several cities around Washington. It takes effect Wednesday, Nov. 25, at 12:01 a.m.

Clallam County has voted for every presidential winner since 1980. Nineteen counties out of the country’s 3000 counties had that record until this year. The other 18 voted for Trump. Now we are the only county with the perfect voting record.
We are “the county with the country’s pulse.”
We collaborate in a peaceful way and work together – what an example for the other Washington and the rest of the US. It makes us at your EDC proud to be a part of this community.
