How does it work?
fineDine is a food delivery service that started in April 2006 in the Tokyo Shirokane area.
The feature is that authentic dishes from restaurants that are not normally delivered can be delivered to your home or office within 30 minutes after order. It is operated by Ride on Express Holdings Co., Ltd., which operates sushi “Gin no Sara” and home delivery set “Kama Tora”. fineDine is available on weekdays for lunch 11:00-14:00, dinner 16:30-22:00, and weekends and holidays 11:00-22:00. (It will be different on each restaurant).
fineDine can be ordered via mobile app, website, or phone. The payment method is only credit card for the app, credit card and cash for website order, and cash only for the phone. So, who delivers the order? In fineDine, their system is not hiring an individual delivery partner like Uber Eats, but an employee working at each finder shop. They have part-time jobs called delivery staffs designed to deliver orders from fineDine. The delivery will be by motorcycle or bicycle. How about the minimum payment?
