I find it really interesting on how these money losing businesses are valued so highly. Here is a very good example using DoorDash. Not only are they stealing a guys restaurant info they are also purposely losing money.... Yeah, great business.

He realized that a delivery option had mysteriously appeared on their company's Google Listing. The delivery option was created by Doordash.

To confirm, he had never spoken with anyone from Doordash and after years of resisting the siren song of delivery revenue, certainly did not want to be listed. But the words "Order Delivery" were right there, prominently on the Google snippet.

But he brought up another problem - the prices were off. He was frustrated that customers were seeing incorrectly low prices.
