Delivery From Inconvenience
There’s something freeing about online food delivery. At the click of the mouse, you can specify your finicky or disgusting food preferences in private. Even your roommates don’t have to know that you requested double sour cream on those 9 a.m. nachos.
Two of the city’s biggest online food delivery companies merged in May — but New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is hoping to keep the online food ordering game competitive with a few new rules (well, for now).
Mr. Schneiderman today announced a settlement with GrubHub and Seamless. The agreement states that the companies will no longer be allowed to form exclusive agreements with certain vendors, a release from Mr. Schneiderman’s office states, and they must sever any existing ties within the next 45 days.
