CHICAGO, March 9, 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 Pittsburgh. Through this service, restaurants in Pittsburgh, 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 Pittsburgh since 2011 and connects Pittsburgh diners with more than 250 local restaurants. With the addition of Grubhub's turnkey delivery service, Pittsburgh diners now have a growing number of new delivery options to choose from. Local favorites using this delivery service include:
"Pittsburgh has made a name for itself as a burgeoning culinary hot spot," said Stan Chia, SVP of Operations, Grubhub. "With the addition of so many great restaurants over the past few years, we're thrilled to offer residents more delivery options, while also providing restaurants with the technology and resources to easily add delivery and reach more customers."
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.
"Our customers find it very easy to order via Grubhub's platforms," said Bill Fuller, Corporate Chef for Big Burrito Restaurant Group. "They are stoked to be able to easily get delivery from Mad Mex and Kaya. We have been happy with the service and appreciate the new customers it has provided us."
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, Buca di Beppo, Veggie Grill and Panda Express.
