A twitter user in Salem, Oregon, shared images of toast & jam, a restaurant in the city, labeled by Uber eats as “opened by black people,” even though it is owned by a white couple. The problem seems to be more common than that. A quick survey of restaurants in Washington, D.C., on Uber eats’s list of “black owned” restaurants, found that at least two restaurants did not seem to be owned by black people. < / P > < p > abunai poke is a restaurant that serves Hawaiian food in Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., and is one of the restaurants listed as “run by black people.”. But on the restaurant’s website, the about section says & quot; our founder was a woman, a hybrid of native Hawaiian and Japanese;. Crepeaway, a family run restaurant, was originally headquartered in Athens, Greece, and later in New York City and Washington, D.C. the owner was Saad jallad. He left Greece in 1999 to study in American universities. In 2004, he founded the restaurant near George Washington University. < / P > < p > motherboard contacted the restaurant owner to find out more about how they were included in the black business list, but did not get immediate information about them.

In the case of doordash, like Uber eats, it seems that being labeled as a black business only needs to be self identified through forms submitted on its website. Neither abunai poke nor crepeaway is on the app’s promotion list. < / P > < p > “we’ve heard loud voices from consumers who want a feature to help them support black owned businesses in Uber eats apps,” a spokesman for Uber eats said in a statement.
