Facebook Launches Food Delivery Service in United States Through Its App And Website
New Delhi, Oct 17: Global social media giant, Facebook has forayed into the food delivery business as it launched a home-delivery service for its subscribers in the United States on Friday. Food can be ordered from its website or its mobile application.
Facebook has partnered with several restaurants including international chains like Papa John’s, Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc, Jack in the Box Inc and Five Guys
“Facebook combines options from a number of food ordering services like EatStreet, Delivery.com, DoorDash, ChowNow and Olo, as well as restaurants like Jack in the Box, Five Guys, Papa John’s, and Panera, so you don’t have to search through multiple places to find what you’re looking for. From local spots to national chains, Facebook connects you with old favorites and new discoveries in just a few taps. You can even check out what your friends have to say about a restaurant before you order your food,” it said in a blog post.
“You can browse restaurants nearby by visiting the Order Food section in the Explore menu. On this page, you can browse food options and select Start Order when you’ve found what you’re looking for. If the restaurant you want to order from offers takeout or delivery with multiple services, you can select which service you’d like to use. For example, if you have an account with Delivery.com, you can easily order with your existing login. If you don’t have an account with that service, you can quickly and easily sign up, without leaving the Facebook app,” it added.
“People will be able to browse restaurants near them that take orders via Delivery.com, DoorDash, ChowNow, Zuppler, EatStreet, Slice, and Olo, as well as directly from restaurants including Papa John’s, Wingstop, Panera, Jack in the Box, TGI Friday’s, Denny’s, El Pollo Loco, Chipotle, Five Guys and Jimmy John’s,” Facebook concluded.
The service has been launched in the United States only. The company has not revealed any plan for the India launch of the service.
