In 2017, Zac Bolton started making food deliveries around White Oaks, in East Texas. He delivers for Grubhub, DoorDash and Waitr. Since the pandemic began, he’s seen a lot of new drivers on the platforms. In the beginning, that balanced out the influx of orders from people in quarantine. Now, the market is saturated with drivers and there’s been a drop in delivery demand recently. Zac’s business is down by 50%. At least his wife Jennifer can sympathize. She is a delivery driver too, and they sometimes make deliveries together.
