This interview will be on “St. Louis on the Air” at noon Wednesday. This story will be updated after the show. You can listen live.

The pandemic has led to an increased demand for food delivery services, like DoorDash and Postmates. In March, Chipotle Mexican Grill announced they would expand their delivery services by partnering with Uber Eats. But for local eateries, the price of working with a third party delivery service can be steep.

Wednesday on St. Louis on the Air, local restaurateurs, Melanie Meyer of Party Bear Pizza and Tiny Chef and Kurt Bellon of Chao Baan, will talk about their experience working with third party delivery services. They’ll also discuss how they are approaching the re-opening of their facilities.
