It's just revenue. It doesn't go anywhere. It hits the balance sheet and goes into some account. There's no way to say it goes to the driver, or pays for food, or electricity for the building. It's simply an up charge to make more money. Plain and simple.

Not saying you should. I'm saying that the fee that I pay should go to the driver in some form or fashion. Their website says something (paraphrasing) like delivery fee doesnt go to the driver so please tip them for their great service.

I was a Pizza Hut driver for a while. The delivery charge is totally a way to rip more cash from you. The delivery charge for us was $2.50. Drivers got $1.25 a run, but we use our own cars and pay our own gas that's supposed to cover $3/gallon gas today. So tipping the driver really helps.

Its basically making per oolite aware they need to tip. They put it in there to help with turnover if delivery people I would assume. Or maybe their being nice, but I would guess its to keep drivers happy and decently tipped.
