One of the summer’s best restaurant tech stories involves delivery giant Grubhub buying up tens of thousands of restaurant websites, unbeknownst to the restaurant owners. The discovery, along with a public hearing on the commission structure restaurants pay to GrubHub for phone orders, generated enough public interest that Senator Chuck Schumer to called for a federal investigation. On this episode of Tech Bites, host Jennifer Leuzzi (@mmesnack) talks with H. Claire Brown (@hclaire_brown), the New Food Economy (@newfoodeconomy) reporter about how she broke the story. This episode of Tech Bites (@techbiteshrn) was made possible by the generosity of Cart-Driver (@cart_driver) Denver’s home for pizza, oysters, community, and conviviality!
