Default How does this food delivery service stay in business?

So Doordash delivers food from restaurants. I was at Wendy's today and saw they were a Doordash partner. I looked to see how much it costs to deliver, only to find out that apparently I am to far from that Wendy's to get delivery, and when I looked for other restaurants none would show up on the list.

Here is the thing though. This Wendy's is only 0.8 miles away, my business is literally on the same street as Wendy's and there is only 1 light between us. It is a 6 minute drive, including being stopped by that one light.

So I tried some other addresses near Wendys to see where delivery is available, and found that none started to be deliverable until it hit 0.4 miles away from Wendy's WTF?

How is Doordash in business with that kind of extremely small delivery area?

Maybe it's just a guy on foot, trying to save up to buy a car?

Theres a system in place. If a driver is nearby to a restaurant it will say it's available to you. But if there are no drivers in that immediate area to pick up food it won't be available. It works out great in big cities cause there are always people delivering but not so great in small cities cause there are less drivers. Delivery companies make their big money in big cities.

Salt Lake isn't exactly tiny at what, 600k?

My fiancé who lives somewhat in the boonies has a shitload of locations that'll deliver to her place, granted that most of them with a quickie search are well over 30 mins. Some of the locations are from Boise which is 10 miles away.


So maybe now is the time to ask: Are you IN Salt Lake City or one of the smaller towns outside of it?
