Receive an error when saving a boundary? Here are some potential reasons why:

  1. Boundary is too large: cannot exceed 70 mile radius from restaurant
  2. Boundary name already exists: Enter a different name
  3. Boundary must have a delivery fee: Enter a delivery fee
  4. Boundary cannot share largest delivery fee with another delivery area: Change fee amount
  5. Boundary must be within area with the largest delivery fee


Catering Delivery Boundaries

We will be creating a catering delivery boundary for you based on your previous Seamless corporate catering orders.  To ensure these boundaries and fees are correct we encourage you to log-in to Grubhub for Restaurants to review and modify these boundaries.

  • Delivery Boundary tab
    • It will auto prompt you to create a catering boundary. Enter the catering boundary on this page, do not enter a ‘standard’ boundary unless both Grubhub and GH Catering are being set up
    • The max is 20 mile radius
    • The max fee is $50
