We tried a popular third-party delivery service to see how customer experience is measured.

Our own experience made us wonder:

  • “Can restaurants be certain that their customers are receiving the same quality from a third party service?”
  • “Who is measuring the service standards from the time an order is picked up by a delivery service to the time it reaches the customer?”

The Experiment 

The Order

On this day, we had a craving for burritos. After placing the order, we received a standard order confirmation message. This was followed by a delivery update.

Michael delivered the food in a reasonable amount of time. The order was correct. So everything’s good, right?


A few minutes later, we were surprised to find that the only feedback option available was a general experience rating.

The Feedback

As an experiment, we responded with a “1” rating. We were then sent a link which led to the page shown.

That’s it.

No formulated strategy to provide in-depth feedback to the restaurant about our experience regarding important factors like:

– Delivery Time
– Packaging
– Food Presentation
– Food Quality & Taste

Just a word-dump option, with no measurable or comparable metrics.
