Google teams with delivery.com
Google is upgrading its food delivery service by offering a way for consumers to see what businesses are delivering food in their areas.
According to the company, it’s integrating the delivery.com online restaurant delivery network into its food ordering experience. Consumers who browse restaurants across the Google Search, Google Maps and Google Assistant platforms now have the option to place their order from the 12,000 restaurants that make on-demand delivery available from delivery.com.
“delivery.com is excited to enter this next chapter with Google,” said Jed Kleckner, CEO of delivery.com. “We’re thrilled to make our restaurant partners available to Google users, making online ordering for this audience more accessible and convenient than ever.”
delivery.com is not a stranger to integrating its on-demand food delivery network with larger online platforms. In 2017, delivery.com was one of a number of food-delivery providers included in Facebook’s launch of a service that lets consumers place online food orders from within the Facebook app or site.
Food delivery services have become popular among grocers. Wegmans Food Markets is among the first grocers to offer hot-and-ready restaurant-style food delivery. The Rochester, N.Y.-based retailer inked a deal with Doordash to offer delivery of the grocer's prepared foods, including pizza, wings subs, soups, salads and several other items.
