Third-Party Delivery Would Need Approval from Restaurants Under New Illinois Bill

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – The Illinois House and Senate both have approved a bill to prevent third-party delivery services from operating without written approval from a restaurant.

State Rep. Jeff Keicher said the “bad-faith actions” of some delivery services prompted lawmakers to act.

Keicher added restaurants then have to deal with order mistakes or complaints from angry customers who used an app like Grubhub, Door Dash, or Uber Eats.

If services operate without written permission, businesses could bring a claim to court and recover damages. The bill could soon be sent to the governor.
