Overcoming Delivery Driver Challenges with DoorDash Drive and Thrive POS

Brian Loudon

17 April 2023

In recent years, the demand for delivery services has skyrocketed, putting a strain on pizza restaurants to maintain a robust team of delivery drivers. Hiring and retaining drivers has become increasingly challenging, with many drivers preferring the flexibility offered by third-party companies such as DoorDash. Fortunately, DoorDash Drive and Thrive POS have joined forces to help pizza restaurants overcome these challenges and continue to provide exceptional delivery service to their customers.

The Driver Hiring Dilemma:

When drivers opt for third-party services, they enjoy the freedom to choose when and where they work, with no fixed schedules or territories. This autonomy has made it difficult for pizza restaurants to compete for top-notch delivery drivers, as they typically require more commitment from their employees.
