OrderUp to target underserved delivery market
OrderUp, a Baltimore mobile and online food ordering and delivery service, announced the company raised $7 million in funds for nationwide expansion and delivery technology.
The funding will also open two OrderUp offices in New York City and Boulder, Colorado. The company plans to focus on underserved delivery markets, such as those in small towns and cities.
OrderUp was founded in 2009 and has moved into 35 markets, making more than 10,000 deliveries a week, the company said in a release.
"Consumers love the convenience of ordering online. Yet, outside the major metropolitan markets, it's shockingly difficult to find online food delivery options," said Tige Savage, managing partner at Revolution Ventures, OrderUp's funding leader and newest board member. "OrderUp allows restaurants in small towns nationwide to cost-effectively join the digital age through an innovative ordering and delivery model. Restaurants love it and consumers do too."
