Other helpful delivery tips

Deliver orders according to restaurant guidelines

Restaurants may outline certain delivery guidelines that promote food safety, adhere to regulatory guidance, or accommodate customer dietary restrictions, and they expect you to follow them.

It’s helpful to know food safety standards

Restaurants and customers expect you to deliver their orders safely and in accordance with relevant safety standards. For example, opening packaging during delivery can lead to foreign matter in food, which may pose a significant food safety risk for customers.
