Edmonton's LOVEPIZZA owner dishes on why he ditched SkipTheDishes and opting for their own online ordering system.

While Emma Waverman is on vacation, Dan Clapson fills her shoes temporarily to chat with Phil Wilson about some timely Canadian food news from Vancouver all the way over to Newfoundland and to dive deep into the rise of companies like SkipTheDishes, DoorDash and Uber Eats.

Bringing some solid industry opinion to the conversation is Edmonton's LOVEPIZZA owner Gavin Fedorak, who shares his thoughts on why he decided to step away from online ordering partnerships and launch their own ordering system and mobile app. Much like everything in life, there are pros and cons to partnering with online services such as this, but one in particular has displayed some more questionable business procedures than its competitors.
