Wisconsin legislation targets food delivery services

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Wisconsin Assembly has passed a bipartisan proposal that would make it easier for restaurants to stop delivery services from adding them to their apps without their permission.

The bill approved Wednesday would require those delivery services to remove a restaurant from its digital network within three days if the restaurant requests it.

The use of third-party delivery apps like Grubhub, Uber Eats and DoorDash exploded during the pandemic.

But restaurant owners who came out in support of the bill told lawmakers that third-party delivery services often lead to headaches for them and upset customers.
