CHICAGO, March 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Grubhub, the nation's leading online and mobile food-ordering and delivery platform, announced today that it has expanded its turnkey delivery service to Denver. Through this service and with Grubhub's recent acquisition of local delivery company Delivered Dish, restaurants in Denver, many of which did not previously offer delivery, can now expand their customer base and grow their order volume by utilizing Grubhub's on-the-ground network of delivery drivers. With more restaurants offering their menu for delivery, the service also enables Grubhub to bring a broader set of restaurant choices to diners.
Grubhub's online ordering platform has been available in Denver since 2010 and connects Denver diners with nearly 600 local restaurants. With the addition of Grubhub's turnkey delivery service, Denver diners now have a growing number of new delivery options to choose from. Local favorites using this delivery service include:
"Thanks to a growing community of innovative chefs, Denver has become a culinary hot spot," said Stan Chia, SVP of Operations, Grubhub. "With the addition of local Delivered Dish restaurants to our network, we're able to connect diners with even more of these great restaurants, no matter what they are craving. For restaurants, we're thrilled to provide tools and technology that will help them reach new customers, and therefore bring them more orders."
In December 2015, Grubhub acquired Delivered Dish, a local 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 Denver diners.
"We have always enjoyed working with Delivered Dish and we were pleased to see an uptick in orders since joining the Grubhub network," said Nick O'Sullivan, co-owner of Brothers BBQ. "Having a reliable partner, such as Grubhub, to execute deliveries for us is extremely valuable. It's clear that they care as much about their business as we do about ours, and this has created a great partnership."
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 and diners.
"Through Grubhub's delivery service, I've been able to reach a whole new set of customers," said Joe Jaramillo, owner of The Copper Pot. "It's been a great way to increase visibility for our restaurant and allow more Denver diners to enjoy our food from the comfort of their home."
Grubhub's turnkey 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, Bucca di Beppo, Veggie Grill and Panda Express.
