Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This bill establishes requirements for third-party food delivery services that
operate digital networks and deliver food purchased from restaurants through
digital networks. Specifically, the bill prohibits a third-party food delivery service
from listing a restaurant on its digital network or offering a restaurant's food for
delivery unless the third-party food delivery service first obtains written consent
from the operator of the restaurant. The bill also requires third-party food delivery
services to ensure that menus, descriptions, and prices related to a restaurant are
accurate.
Under the bill, third-party food delivery services must disclose to restaurants
the amount of any commissions, delivery fees, and promotional fees charged, and
must also ensure that individuals delivering food for the third-party food delivery
service have knowledge of basic food safety principles. Third-party food delivery
services must also provide restaurant operators with access to anonymized
information identifying various details related to orders involving the restaurant
and must allow restaurant operators to view and respond to consumer feedback and
reviews.
