NYC Council Bill Would Amend Delivery Fee Cap

NYC amendment follows on similar changes in SF and Chicago

Nov 3, 2022

On Thursday, New York City Councilmember Robert Holden introduced an amendment to the city’s food delivery fee cap, exempting delivery companies from the fee cap if they offer restaurants the option to choose higher-cost tiers of services and the choice to be listed on their platforms for a fee consistent with delivery and transaction fee requirements. New York’s new amendment follows on similar changes in San Francisco and Chicago.

“This is big news for New Yorkers who order takeout and the workers who make delivery happen,” said Chamber of Progress CEO Adam Kovacevich. “This change would allow delivery services to pass on more costs to participating restaurants and help consumers save money.”

Chamber of Progress offered testimony opposing New York City’s permanent delivery fee caps when they passed last year. For more on the impact of delivery fees, read Chamber of Progress’s op-ed in the New York Daily News.
