Here in York county non-essential businesses, such as restaurants, have been asked to shut down. Restaurants have gotten creative by offering curbside pick up as well as starting a delivery service where there formally was not one.
Supporting these small businesses that operate on a razor-thin margin on a normal day is even more important now that they no longer are able to have dining room service. Many of my favorite places to eat and drink in York pa are on this list.
Here is a chart from the York Daily Record showcasing the restaurants who will be closed and restaurants that will be offering curbside pick up as well as delivery options.
If you have food delivery apps on your phone you might be able to get a discount with your first order.
Tips and tricks for using a food delivery app.
- Use a discount code on your first order. I have some codes listed below if you are a first time user for these apps.
- Uber Eats – tipping not necessary but can be added in the app or cash given to the driver. Diver gets 100%.
- The delivery fee is NOT a tip. That fee is for the delivery service…not the delivery driver. The service could be the maintenance of the app, the disposable containers, advertising, etc.
When and how much to tip your food delivery app person.
- A typical order should be tipped $5 or 20%. Whichever is more.
- If there is poor weather add an EXTRA $3-$5 for the nasty weather conditions on to of the typical tip.
- With big orders, such as ordering lunch for the entire office, an EXTEA 3-5% on top of the normal tip.
- In tall buildings without elevators, add an extra $1-$2 for flights of stairs over 3 floors. No need to tip extra if there is an elevator.
