The British Columbia Restaurant and Foodservices Association has partnered with a pair of B.C. food delivery businesses in an effort to prevent the hospitality industry from spending too much money on commission fees.

The BCRFA is teaming up with Moduurn and Tutti, which are both based in Victoria and charge between 10% and 15% on orders. The same can’t be said for bigger companies like Skip the Dishes, Uber Eats and DoorDash, which are eating into profits.

“The BCRFA has been looking for a long-term, made-in-B.C. solution to the very important and costly issue of food delivery,” BCRFA president and CEO Ian Tostenson said in a press release. “Throughout North America and in B.C., delivery commission rates from companies such as Skip the Dishes, Uber Eats and DoorDash approach 30%, effectively negating any profit.

“The B.C. government recently brought in regulation to cap these fees to 15 per cent temporarily. This is very appreciated, but once the cap is off, fees from these companies will escalate again to the detriment of our industry.”

Moduurn is offering reduced setup and subscription rates for BCRFA members, as well as an introductory offer for non-members, while Tutti’s commission cost ranges from 10% to 15% depending on the partnership level, and there are no start-up or monthly fees. Tutti is available in Victoria, Kelowna, Nanaimo and Kamloops.
