Grubhub has also partnered with companies like Shake Shack, Dine Brands and McDonald’s (NYSE: MCD) for delivery services. These alliances are a good move and will benefit the company’s topline numbers.

However, increased spending on marketing and expansion is expected to take a toll on earnings. The company faces tough competition from rivals like UberEats, DoorDash and Postmates. It has also seen a sequential decrease in metrics like gross food sales and daily average grubs, which has raised concerns. Gross food sales measures the total value of food ordered through the platform.
