You May Soon Be Able to Get Your Chipotle or Shake Shack Fix Via Amazon
Fast food delivery has seen a massive boom in recent years: From Uber to Square, OrderUp, Tapingo, and more, there’s no shortage of ways to get your favorite grub-on-the-go brought straight to your door. Still, it’s about to get even BIGGER, as online retail giant Amazon has officially sets its sights on taking over the industry. Enter Amazon Restaurants.
Partnering with Olo, which offers “reliable, fast, and secure digital ordering solutions for multi-location restaurants,” Amazon Restaurants is hoping to offer hungry folks around the country access to “effortless ordering” and “real-time delivery tracking” from some of their favorite fast food restaurants (as long as they’re Prime members, of course).
The new partnership would allow Prime customers to order their go-to dishes from Olo’s roster of customers without their own delivery service, including staples such as Chipotle, Applebee’s, Shake Shack, Five Guys, and many more.
As The Verge points out, “None of those [major chains] have taken advantage of Amazon’s offer yet,” but that’s likely to change now that the option is available.
“We are excited to leverage Olo’s digital ordering technology and continue rapidly growing our network of restaurants to give Amazon Prime members more options for fast delivery from their favorite brands,” Gus Lopez, general manager of Amazon Restaurants, said in a press release. “This integration will enable Amazon Restaurants to onboard new restaurants with ease, as well as quickly add more new choices and delivery options for customers.” (Like, say, yelling at Alexa to get you a burger and shake from Shake Shack, stat.)
