Are your numbers not quite where you want them?

Identify the metrics you need to improve to better your customer experience and reach "Most Loved" status.

  • Ensure your menu is up to date, including when items are out of stock to reduce the likelihood of “missing” items.

  • Label orders with the customer’s name and/or attach a printed ticket to the order to help ensure Dashers deliver the right order.

  • Double check for modifications and special requests. Contact the customer directly for any clarifications.

  • Review customer feedback of your food and make note of any recurring trends you can address. 

  • Go above and beyond by using packaging that ensures your food travels well, including instructions for reheating, or adding a note to thank customers for their support.
