Working Lunch: A busy week in the restaurant delivery space

Some restaurant companies are prospering financially while others may be disappearing

The delivery space this week saw significant developments in courtrooms, statehouses and city halls, as well as in social and cultural activism. The team from Align Public Strategies tries to get their arms around it and what it all means for operators on this week’s Working Lunch podcast.

The team is then joined by Michael Halen, senior restaurant analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence, to discuss the state of the industry’s finances and what the next few months of reopening may look like for operators big and small.

The CEO of Uber and the president of the Rockefeller Foundation this week co-authored a piece advocating for a national portable benefits program. The team talks about this unusual partnership and what it means for a broader conversation. The podcast wraps up with the weekly legislative scorecard.
