3. What is your delivery charge?
Our delivery fee starts at $2.99. The fee increases the further away your address is from the restaurant you are ordering from. WE DELIVER MOST ADDRESSES IN MADISON COUNTY! Including Berea, Kirksville, Waco. This fee is NOT a tip for the driver. Addresses that remain unchanged from a previous order and/or are incorrect will be charged an additional FEE to compensate for any lost mileage and time. Please call as soon as possible to make changes to an incorrect address.
What other fees might I pay?
Fees vary for each restaurant on the Colonel Delivery platform based on their partnership level. The fees help us pay Drivers, operate our Premium Colonel Delivery platform, and provide the best service possible.
You can see the fees from the checkout screen so you’ll know what the total is for your order before paying. You’ll also receive a receipt showing a breakdown of the order subtotal, applicable taxes, fees, and gratuity.
The total cost of your order includes the price of the menu items and tax, an optional tip to the Driver, and a delivery fee and service fee depending on the restaurant. In some cases, there may be an additional fee for orders below a minimum subtotal and for orders when demand is especially high.
We're always working to make prices even lower to make Colonel Delivery even more convenient and accessible, so check back often.

6. Why do I see an authorization charge on my credit card?
When you request a delivery, your card is immediately authorized for your order total plus a % to cover any special instructions you may have included with your order and/or additional tip you may add when the driver arrives. Once your delivery is complete, we replace the authorization with the final charge from the merchant (Colonel Delivery). This change is typically reflected within 24 to 48 hours of the delivery, though some cards may take 3-7 business days to process the change.

They help people from all walks of life, in all different types of situations. Thank you for helping to keep our community strong!

9. What if I need to make a change to my order? Can I cancel my order?
Orders cannot be canceled or changed once submitted. Once an order has been placed to a restaurant the restaurant has used materials and labor in preparation of the order. If you need to cancel or make changes to an advanced order, Click on the CHAT NOW Button on your app or the website where you placed your order and one of our local service representatives will greet you soon and make the changes for you. Only orders placed for a later delivery time or day can be changed or canceled.
10. My order was cancelled or I had items removed and I still see a charge on my debit or credit card?
Orders that are cancelled are immediately voided from our system, and the funds are sent back to the banking institution at midnight PST. Depending on your bank, it may take anywhere from 3-7 business days to full refund back into your account. This is strictly dependent on your bank policy, and unfortunately Colonel Delivery cannot expedite the process.
When we tell you we will take an item off of your order the charge will stay the same on the authorization, but your final "Cleared" total will reflect the New approptiate amount.
11. Adding Extras & Substitutions May cost extra.
When we place your order on your behalf, if you make any requests that cause the price of an item to be higher, you acknowledge that the difference in price will be passed on to you and added to your order total.

If there are any problems with your order, you must USE THE CHAT NOW button from the app or website where you placed your order within no more than 10 minutes after the order has been delivered. We will be glad to fix the order if it is ordered wrong by Us. We will do our best to correct the order within 45 minutes. We do not guarantee the order will be fixed right away if the restaurant missed or made the order incorrectly. Please check your order and contact us within 10 mins of receiving your order to have your order corrected if there are any issues, if it is past 10 minutes we will not correct the order. If an item was missing from your delivery, we will confirm with the restaurant regarding the mistake. Once we verify with the restaurant that the problem was on their end, We will refund you the amount of the missing item. Our drivers are independent contractors and are paid by the trip, therefore a re-delivery for a restaurant error is not a typical option. We understand this can be frustrating, but please remember our role is that of the company that picks up the order you placed and brings it to you. We will not be held responsible for restaurant errors as that responsibility falls on the restaurant. In regards to incorrectly prepared items that you choose to be re-delivered instead of refunded if we come to that agreement, you must give the driver the incorrect item. If the incorrect item is not provided or was correct after inspection, you will be charged for both items. Special requests are just that, special requests, and may not be honored when ordered in the comments section. If a restaurant does grant a special request that incurs an additional charge from the restaurant, that charge will be added to your bill. All special requests are at the discretion of the restaurant and our dispatch team. If we are unable to order your special request through the restaurant's online ordering portal the request will not be granted. >> We do not issue refunds for orders. << Should you have an issue with how your food was prepared, we recommend that you contact the restaurant for a resolution. We are contractually obligated with our partnered restaurants to not refund any orders without consent from the restaurant. And as always, please remember … Colonel Delivery’s role is that of the company that picks up the order you placed and to brings it to you. We have no hand in preparing or packaging your order.
14. Our quoted times?
Our quoted times are an ESTIMATED time for delivery. When restaurants are super busy or their drive-thru line is “out to the road” we will always do our best to get your food to you as quickly as possible. All of our drivers are equipped with insulated bags to keep your food as fresh as possible from the time we pick it up from the restaurant until when it is delivered to you. Please note that unfortunately several restaurants in this service area do not keep your food in a hot staging area and instead leave finished food on a shelf waiting for the delivery company to pick up. Colonel Delivery will not be held responsible for poor restaurant practices.
15. Severe Weather Safety Protocols
Severe Weather protocols will go into effect as needed to keep our drivers safe. What this means is that Delivery times will be a suggestion. Drivers will not be held to a timetable, and each driver is to consider safety first. We will do everything we can to make deliveries as timely as safely possible.ICY or Uncleared driveways/walkways: if our drivers feel unsafe in approaching your delivery address they have been instructed to contact you and ask you to meet them. For the safety of all parties if this is necessary, please wear your mask for Covid protection.
