Is Uber Eats busy on Father’s Day? You might be asking yourself this question if you’re looking to earn some money with Uber Eats on Father’s Day. In general, Father’s Day does have the potential to be a busy day, although there’s no guarantee it’ll be busy. My suggestion is to go into the day without any high expectations. Think of it as any other Sunday in the summer.
In this post, we’ll take a closer look at whether Uber Eats is busy on Father’s Day, as well as consider the best times to work on Father’s Day.
Is Uber Eats Busy On Father’s Day?
In short, Uber Eats can be busy on Father’s Day, but I’d say you shouldn’t expect that it will be much busier than any other Sunday. That’s because Father’s Day isn’t a food-based holiday, so there’s not a lot of reason for Uber Eats to be busier or slower than a normal Sunday.
Uber Eats does not share which holidays are busiest for their platform, but it’s interesting to note that DoorDash does share this information. For DoorDash, Mother’s Day is listed as one of their busiest holidays. However, Father’s Day doesn’t make the list of busiest holidays. In my experience, Mother’s Day has never seemed any busier to me than a normal Sunday, so it’s worth considering that information when deciding whether it’s worth delivering for Uber Eats on Father’s Day.
Best Times To Deliver For Uber Eats On Father’s Day
As always, when delivering for Uber Eats, you want to do it during the prime delivery hours – specifically lunch and dinner. That means the best times to deliver for Uber Eats on Father’s Day will be during lunch (between 11 am and 1 pm) and during dinner (typically between 5 pm and 8 pm).
However, since Father’s Day is on a Sunday, you can usually expect orders to stay fairly consistent throughout the day. That’s because, on weekends, people tend to order more food outside of the normal lunch and dinner hours. You’ll still get more business if you focus on the lunch and dinner rush, but it’s okay if you need to work outside of those hours too.
Father’s Day is a family holiday, so food delivery isn’t necessarily going to be the focus for most families. That doesn’t mean people won’t be ordering Uber Eats on Father’s Day, but it’s something to think about as you approach working on Father’s Day.
My best advice is to go into Father’s Day expecting it to be a normal Sunday. If things are busier than expected, consider that a nice bonus. And if things are the same as usual or slower than expected, you won’t be disappointed.
The best thing you can do is focus on the most important things about food delivery – be strategic with the orders you accept, multi-app if you can, and work during the prime delivery hours.
