With Dead Week and Finals Week around the corner, students will soon be searching for convenient food (more than they already do, that is). While Domino’s delivery has long been the service of choice among starving Stanford students, a recent boom in food delivery platforms has dramatically increased the number of options available. Chief among this group of startups are Postmates, Doordash and Fluc, each with its own distinct advantages and disadvantages. Investigating facets from driver base (Postmates seems to have the upper hand) to cost (should you tip your DoorDash deliverer?). The Dish Daily has sampled and contacted all four of the major services to compile this guide to help you wade through your options.
Students can now gain access to food delivery within 45 minutes from over 60 restaurants in Palo Alto and Mountain View thanks to DoorDash, a Stanford alumni-founded startup hoping to leverage the needs of local small business owners and hungry clientele.
