Yum is open 7 days a week from 9:00am to 9:30pm. Each restaurant has their own set of hours as well though. In order to place an order, Yum must be open and the restaurant must be open.

How long will the order take?

That depends on how long it takes for the restaurant to prepare the food and how far away the drop-off point is from the restaurant. Given these variables most orders take from 45-minute to 75 minutes.

Yes, of course. Simply go to the upper right corner of the screen and click "My Account - > Update Primary Address".

What do I do if I want to order from two different places on a regular basis, say office and home?

We are working on implementing a system where you can select two different delivery addresses. Until that module is ready, the easiest thing to do is to create two different accounts - and sign in with the appropriate one when checking out.

Can I order from a restaurant that's not listed?

No, unfortunately not. But if you have a restaurant you really like that is not listed - tell them to get in touch with us so we can sign them up - or shoot us an email with their contact detail and we will reach out to them ourselves.

Can I order from more than one restaurant?

Yes, of course! You will however have to place a new order to do so. Keep in mind that you will be charged delivery fee again if you place a second order with a different restaurant.
