Eater Talks: How Delivery Apps Are Transforming Food

June 29 — 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT

Food delivery has created a new job market, made diners’ lives more convenient, and given us ghost kitchens. It’s also disrupted small businesses, prompted lawsuits and legislation, and changed our relationship with food. What does the future of the $11 billion food delivery industry hold, and what do the few mega-companies at the center of it stand to gain?

To take a closer look at the industry and its transformational impact, Eater teamed up with Recode for a special season of Land of the Giants, the podcast that explores how the biggest tech companies are changing our world. And on Tuesday, June 29 at 1 p.m. ET, hosts Ahmed Ali Akbar and Amanda Kludt of Eater are digging into the podcast for a live audience.

Join Ahmed and Amanda as they dive into the most surprising things they learned from their reporting and talk candidly with “characters” from the series, including Willy Solis of the Gig Workers Collective and Andrew Ding, a NYC restaurant owner who’s standing up to Grubhub.

The conversation will take place over Zoom, so register now to secure a spot and receive a Zoom link to join before the event. In the meantime, listen to episode one to hear more about the fees, the hacks, the consumer’s role, and how we got here in the first place.
