CHICAGO, Feb. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Grubhub, the nation's leading online and mobile food-ordering and delivery platform, announced today that its delivery service is available in Portland. Through Grubhub's delivery service and Delivered Dish, a local delivery service that joined the Grubhub portfolio of brands in late 2015, restaurants in Portland area can now expand their customer base and grow their order volume by adding delivery. It will also bring new delivery options to Grubhub diners.
Grubhub currently provides delivery services for more than 55 restaurants in Portland, a number that will continue to grow, including local favorites such as:
"Portland is home to an eclectic and vibrant food scene," said Stan Chia, senior vice president of operations, Grubhub. "With so many unique local tastes, we're thrilled to deliver more of these flavors to our Portland diners while providing restaurants with the tools and service to expand their customer base."
In December 2015, Grubhub acquired Delivered Dish, a Portland-based restaurant delivery service designed to serve restaurants that don't operate their own delivery service. By combining Delivered Dish's local market expertise and Grubhub's national scale, Grubhub has been able to accelerate local growth while serving more Portland diners.
"We strive to make delicious food that attracts new customers and keeps them coming back," said Jeff Extine, manager of 24th and Meatballs. "With Grubhub delivery, we are able to reach new and old customers so they can easily enjoy our meatballs in the comfort of their own home."
Grubhub's national scale lowers the overall cost of delivery to diners, which in turn, helps encourage diner loyalty. And when Grubhub handles the delivery, restaurants can focus on making great food. The efficiency of Grubhub's delivery service, combined with great food, creates a win-win for local restaurants.
Grubhub's delivery service launched in June of 2014 and has since expanded to nearly 50 markets across the country. Recently, Grubhub announced relationships with a number of national chain restaurants, including California Pizza Kitchen, Buca di Beppo, Veggie Grill and Panda Express.
