Uber Eats is already a better product. Nothing about Grubhub incentivizes restaurants or consumers to be loyal. They will be forced to decrease margins to zero in a race to the bottom with no other line of business to fall back on.

Unashamedly went through Wendy's drive-through today to get a Baconator… I noticed they were advertising Door Dash for delivery, which got me thinking about the food-delivery industry...
Convenient and fast delivery is without a doubt a huge trend, whether it is people (Uber), packages (Amazon) or Food (Grubhub). Food is definitely the youngest idea of the three and also the most competitive, in terms of many large and small start-ups vying for market share; which contrasts with packages where Amazon is dominate with FexEx and UPS, and people where Uber and Lyft having a big head start. Food delivery also has the potential to be the most un-differentiated:
-You don't have to talk to your driver, have a nice/clean car.
-There are not many reasons for restaurants to not accept orders from multiple vendors.
-There is no scale advantage from having a large distribution center like Amazon because restaurants are already distributed with the consumer in mind- so anyone with a car has access.
Grubhub is the first-mover, has solid brand equity, and has the most options but that hardly quantifies a moat. Competing with UberEats and potentially Amazon can be very difficult, as Uber already has the largest network of drivers who can both deliver food and people, and Amazon has the ability to cannibalize any industry. As competition between Grubhub, UberEats, Postmates, Door Dash (and even local startup like Territory Foods at FoolHQ) heat up you could see compressing margins (as has already been the case with Grubhub) as food delivery is reduced to more and more of a commodity. In fact, I see more value-add to the restaurant than the deliverer in a more mature market.

Grubhub currently has a valuation of 10.7B and is trading at 70X forward earnings.. that simply seems like too much for a company with little to no competitive advantage in an industry with little pricing power.
