Since driving for a food delivery service doesn’t pay drivers for the length of the ride, as Uber and Lyft do, every minute counts for making money. Experienced delivery drivers maximize their income by starting their hour close by popular restaurants.

Peak hours also see a higher volume of orders, offering more opportunities to claim deliveries. Lunch is generally from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. while the dinner rush is from 5 p.m. until as late as 9 p.m.
