Is Uber Eats busy on Memorial Day? With the Memorial Day holiday coming up, it’s a good question to ask yourself. Here’s the answer. In general, you can expect Memorial Day to be fairly busy, as many people have the day off from work and may order food to celebrate. However, because many people may be cooking food at home, it’s good to temper your expectations as well.
In this post, we’ll take a closer look at the question of whether Uber Eats is busy on Memorial Day. We’ll also look at some strategies you can use to maximize your earnings on Uber Eats if you’re planning to work on Memorial Day.
Is Uber Eats Busy On Memorial Day?
In general, you can expect Uber Eats to be fairly busy on Memorial Day. Uber Eats doesn’t make public which holidays are busiest for them, but other apps like DoorDash list Memorial Day as one of their busiest holidays. Accordingly, you can expect that Uber Eats should be fairly busy on Memorial Day.
One thing to note is that Memorial Day is often thought of as a grilling holiday, where people grill food at home with family and friends. This can be true, but it doesn’t mean people aren’t still ordering Uber Eats, especially during the lunch and dinner rushes. A lot of people also travel during the long weekend, so if you live in an area with a lot of tourists, you could also get a lot of deliveries (to hotels in particular) as people order food.
Another thing to note is because Memorial Day is a federal holiday, some restaurants may close for the holiday. In general, I’ve found most restaurants do stay open on Memorial Day, but you could run into some places that are closed. As a result, you should consider being strategic about which orders you accept and confirm that the restaurant will be open before leaving so you don’t waste too much time.
The Best Times To Deliver For Uber Eats On Memorial Day
Memorial Day is a lot like a weekend day, so I’ve found you can usually stay busy throughout the day. However, as with any food delivery gig, it’s usually best to work during the lunch and dinner hours when most people are typically going to be placing Uber Eats orders.
That means, if you can, you should try to work around 11 am to 1 pm and around 5 pm to 7 pm. These are the hours most people place Uber Eats orders. Avoid working during off-peak hours if you can, as those times will probably be slower.
Memorial Day is typically a busy holiday, although, as always, things will differ depending on your market. If you want to maximize your earnings, you should stick to working during the busy lunch and dinner hours when more people are likely to be placing Uber Eats orders.
