Some nights you just can’t bear the thought of cooking, but the idea of eating out with a toddler sounds equally as unappetizing. Amazon, of course, has come up with a solution by delivering your family’s favorite fast casual restaurants right to your front door.
Amazon just announced that it is partnering with Olo, an online restaurant interface that allows you to place orders by smartphone or desktop from several popular restaurants, including Shake Shack, Chipotle, Five Guys, Jamba Juice and many others. The partnership would mean that you could order from those same staple restaurants through Amazon Restaurants and have food delivered from spots that don’t typically offer delivery.
“We’re thrilled to work with Amazon to provide Olo’s base of restaurant customers with a new delivery sales channel that drives increased visibility,” said Noah Glass, Founder & CEO of Olo in a statement. “Amazon’s obsession with providing great customer and restaurant experience supports the evolving expectations and behaviors of today’s consumer. We’re excited to connect more of Olo’s restaurant brands with Amazon Restaurants.” Amazon Restaurants is currently available to Prime Members, but only in select cities. Hopefully this new deal will open up the delivery area to more cities soon.
