It is ordained by the City Council of the City of Cranston as follows:

Section 1. Title 5, Chapter 5.80 is hereby amended by adding the following:

5.80.080 Third Party Delivery Services

Definitions:
As used in this subchapter, the following terms have the following meanings:

a) “Covered establishment,” means any food service establishment as defined by Rhode Island General Law section 21-27-1(9), that offers, in a single commercial transaction over the internet, whether directly or through a third-party application, the sale and same-day delivery of food to customers from one or more retail locations within the City of Cranston.

b) “Third-party food delivery service,” means a company, organization, or entity outside of the operation of the food service establishment’s business that provides a limited delivery service to customers.

Commission Disclosure:
When a final price is disclosed to a customer, and before a transaction occurs, for the purchase and delivery of food from a covered establishment through a third-party food delivery service, such third-party food delivery service shall disclose to such customer, in plain and simple language and in a conspicuous manner, any commission, fee, or any other monetary payment imposed by the third-party food delivery service on such covered establishment as a term of a contract or agreement between the parties in connection with the covered establishment utilizing the third-party delivery service.

Any covered establishment may decline to disclose to customers the commission charged by a third-party delivery service. If a covered establishment has declined to have such a commission disclosed to customers, the requirement of subsection (b) shall not apply with respect to such covered establishment.

Delivery Disclosure:
When a final price is disclosed to a customer, and before a transaction occurs, for the purchase and delivery of food from a covered establishment through a third-party food delivery service, such third-party food delivery service shall disclose to such customer, in plain and simple language and in a conspicuous manner, if the covered establishment offers their own first-party delivery service.

Fees:
It shall be unlawful for third-party food delivery services to charge covered establishments a fee per online order for the use of their services that totals more than 10% of the purchase price of such online order.

Telephone Orders:
No third-party food delivery service may charge a commission from a covered establishment for a telephone order that does not result in an actual transaction between the covered establishment and a customer during such telephone call, or that exceeds the established commission rate between the third-party food delivery service and covered establishment.

Penalties:
Any person or entity who shall violate any of the provisions of this ordinance shall be fined $100 for each violation.

Section 2: This Ordinance shall take effect upon its final adoption.
