NEW YORK, Aug. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Seamless, the iconic New York City food ordering and delivery platform, has launched its turnkey delivery service in Manhattan. Diners are benefiting from the ability of the vast, reliable driver network to deliver food from local favorites and top-rated Manhattan restaurants in under 30 minutes. Local restaurants are reaping the benefits of reaching more Seamless diners - the largest network of hungry diners in Manhattan. By outsourcing their restaurants' delivery needs to a reliable service with such a captive audience, restaurants are experiencing a significant increase in order volume and gross food sales.
In fact, L.E.S Kitchen, known for delicious comfort fare, has seen a 35 percent increase in orders over the past two months.
"Working with Seamless' delivery service has been a game changer," said Henry Wong, Owner of L.E.S Kitchen, "The service has been incredibly convenient to use and has made a significant impact on our order volume. It's been exciting to share our menu of mouthwatering sandwiches with more Seamless diners."
The new turnkey service allows Seamless to deliver for some of Manhattan's hottest restaurants, offering diners great options at a lower overall cost.
"Seamless was started in Manhattan and has become synonymous with how New York eats," said Stan Chia, Senior Vice President of Operations at Seamless and Grubhub. "As New York City's hometown service, we wanted to deliver even more local favorites to our diners while providing quick delivery times and transparent pricing. We're proud we've been able to do that for our diners while providing even more value to our restaurant partners."
Seamless' delivery service is working with a number of local favorites, including:
- Ivan Ramen
- Black Seed Bagel East Village and Nolita locations
- BONMi Upper West Side Chelsea and Nolita locations
- Just Salad
"We're passionate about making our famous, one-of-a-kind menu items that keep customers from New York and beyond coming back for more," said Ivan Orkin, Chef/Owner of Ivan Ramen. "I've been working with my team to perfect our takeout to assure an experience as close to dining in the restaurant as possible. With Seamless, we're able to tap into their convenient delivery service to reach and obtain even more customers, so we can focus on what matters most, noodles!"
