First, thank you all for piping in on my burning question on tipping pizza drivers. Seems like the consensus was that tipping the driver is the appropriate thing to do. I do, however, have one more question. If the "delivery fee" goes to the franchise (as brought up in a comment), then what is that money being used for? They've already made a profit on the purchase of a pizza, so does that money go to pay the driver for his gas? Wear and tear on his car? Insurance? Or is the company just pocketing it? There eventually will come a time when the more money the franchise takes, the less money people will have to buy pizza and tip the driver. There may even come a time when it's more cost effective to buy a frozen pizza (gasp!). I'm all for tipping the driver, but I'm just curious where these "fees" are going and what they are being used for.
