Do it and wear the camera glasses when you do.

No but whoever delivers to me gets tipped well.  Wonder what the average tip is out there. 

 

Always feel like I tip too much.

Uber and Lyft seems like a pain in the ass... and you have to deal with fuckin' idiots being in your car.  Not interested.  Delivering food the way to go.

So I usually tip $5 and I found out that it doesn't matter how much the order is... $5 is a good tip apparently. I saw something some driver put together in Chicago that had the average tip at about 3.50.

Jeez. I tip like $10 for every $20 ordered.  I guess I feel like they don't get paid shit. 

 

They are probably banking on tips.

if you can find those uber or lyft signup bonuses it would be much more rewarding financially to you. guy who comes in my place a lot signed up as a driver and met the bare minimum to be considered active when they were giving away $500-$1000 signup bonuses. Not sure what's out there now, but much more rewarding than delivering food I think.

 

Girl I talk to who is waiting to pass her anesthesia nursing exam - whatever the f that exam is - has been forced to deliver for  a couple months to make some cash. she makes decent money working for grubhub/doordash type place, but she's always working 12 hours to get her money.

Usually 15%... since it gives you the option of 10%, 15%, 20% or other.

Yeah, you're probably right... but having a bunch of people get into my car just doesn't appeal to me.  I figured delivering food would be better, but maybe I'll give Uber a try just to see how I like it.  It wouldn't hurt trying it out, I guess.

Lotta competition out here in the Mexican Food Biz.  Market is oversaturated really. You have to stand out to make it.

food trucks/restaurant business in general is not something i recommend to anyone who doesn't have a very good chef/cook already as well as someone who is very good with finance/numbers/projections/forecasting. 

 

one of the tougher industries out there because of all the competition. a lot of places bleed money for years before turning a profit. lots of hours, and very little reward the first year or two. if you survive the first couple of years, you can make a good amount (10% of your yearly revenue is solid) after you pay employees. eliminate most employees and work even more yourself and you can get that number closer to 20-30% for something like a food truck.

Kinger could wear his tighty whiteys while he serves the tacos and give chicks the option to pay w their soiled panties.

Would be a smashing success!!

plus you can make money under the table by altering the books and paying less in taxes

not sure about Phoenix, but E-Mail uber support and ask them what their sign-up bonuses are there. Usually they give you a decent chunk up front.
