What are your delivery fees?

Delivery fees vary based on your distance from the restaurant. Contact us to learn how we can help reduce your delivery costs. 

 

What is the minimum order size?

$75. If you would like to order multiple small orders for delivery at the same time, contact us at 763.512.1212 and we will help to coordinate your order.

 

What is the Service Charge?

As our client, service percentage is at your discretion with a minimum of 12% (typically 15 - 20%). The service charge goes to the company and is used to cover delivery expenses including driver wages, driver employment benefits, insurance and more. Your service charge also allows us to offer complimentary event planning and meal concierge services. 

 

How do the drivers get paid?

Our drivers are actual Dining Delivered employees. Our pay structure typically begins at $25.00 per hour, but most drivers make closer to $34.00 per hour. Our drivers provide outstanding service on all orders, large and small. To ensure this, driver compensation is not based on the dollar amount of the order but instead is built around the number of pickup and delivery locations serviced. The result: fabulous client service and drivers that are among the highest paid in the industry. 

What about drinks and beverages?

We offer Coca-Cola and Pepsi products, Pellegrino, LaCroix, bottled waters, juices, coffees and tea. If you want something special, just ask — we’re more than happy to accommodate requests.

How long will it take?

We ask for a minimum of two hours notice before any delivery. Some items and restaurants require more time. Weather, long food preparation time and peak hours all influence delivery times. When placing your order, you will be quoted an estimated delivery time. We will keep you informed of the progress in your delivery. More options will be available to you the more notice we have.
