GrubHub, OLO team up to create online ordering platform
Web and mobile service provider GrubHub has signed a business partnership with OLO Online Ordering to integrate OLO's list of restaurant menus on its site later this year.
"OLO has been instrumental in bringing innovative online and mobile technology to national restaurant chains, making ordering food easier and more convenient for restaurants and their diners," said Matt Maloney, co-founder and CEO of GrubHub. "This partnership forms the largest platform for online food ordering in the United States, covering both independent restaurants and marquee chain restaurants."
GrubHub sent $85 million in orders to restaurants in 2010 and is projected to send $200 million in orders by the end of this year. The partnership between the companies will give diners more variety to choose from while boosting orders for OLO's restaurant partners.
"Over the years, OLO has come to view GrubHub as the best consumer online ordering platform, consistently going above and beyond with their incredible customer service and restaurant support," said Noah Glass, founder and CEO of OLO. "It's natural for people to want to order from both independent restaurants and chain restaurants. GrubHub and OLO will together provide the greatest variety and the highest quality service to both consumers and restaurants of any size."
