Those of us who don’t like cooking and prefer to order our food by delivery currently have many applications such as Grubhub, Doordash, and UberEats to help us in these cases.
However, before deciding which delivery application to use, it is important to know their delivery radius to ensure they can reach our home address without complication.
In which countries and states does Grubhub operate?
Grubhub operates only in the U.S. and partners with approximately 320,000 restaurants located in over 4,000 cities in most U.S. states. It was previously available in the U.K., but this is no longer the case.
Grubhub’s delivery states include Arizona, California, Colorado, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Massachusetts, Virginia, and Washington.
You can order from any of these states, but delivery availability will vary depending on the distance between the restaurant and the order.
What is the maximum distance from which I can order through Grubhub?
The delivery distance will depend on the restaurant, not the platform. This works this way for all delivery applications.
Most companies deliver within a maximum radius of five miles from the delivery address to the restaurant. Restaurants in large cities tend to have a much smaller radius limit than other locations.
In addition, drivers prefer to move to locations where they can be reached within a maximum range of 15 to 20 minutes from the restaurant. This time range may increase in rural areas where restaurants are farther away.
Remember that the farther you are from the restaurant, the more expensive the delivery service will be. On the other hand, if you are nearby, you could qualify for free delivery or discounts if you pay through direct deposit.
Which delivery platform has the widest delivery range?
If you live far away from the restaurant, your best option will be Grubhub, as it delivers the farthest. Its maximum delivery distance is 70 miles. However, remember that the delivery range varies from location to location and will depend on the restaurant’s boundaries and driver availability.
If you are in a range greater than five miles, it’s advised you order through Grubhub, as other apps have this range as a limit. This way, you can save time. You can always use the other applications, enter your address and check the availability of restaurants in your area.
Can I place my order through Grubhub any day and at any time?
Grubhub drivers work depending on the operating hours of the restaurants. If a restaurant operates every day at all hours, so do the drivers.
This includes Christmas, New Year’s Eve, Independence Day, and Thanksgiving. Grubhub will still work for your convenience if the restaurant is open these days. They only pause deliveries when the restaurants are closed.
Grubhub’s customer service is open 24/7, so if you have a problem with your order, you can ask for help anytime.
Can I pay for my Grubhub order with cash?
Grubhub has the option to pay for your order with cash, but not all restaurants accept this method of payment. This is because there is a chance that the customer won’t have the money available at the time of delivery, which would cause losses for the restaurant.
Another reason is that it could happen that the driver does not have the right amount of change, and although the customer could leave the surplus money as a tip, people should not be forced to do this.
However, Grubhub has many other payment methods that will be a better option for you in this case, such as credit cards, Apple Pay and Google Pay.
