Amazon may soon be able to deliver Chipotle to your house. The e-commerce giant has partnered with Olo, an online restaurant ordering platform with corporate customers including Shake Shack, Chipotle, Five Guys, and Wingstop, to offer easy integration into Amazon Restaurants.
To be clear, none of those corporations have taken advantage of Amazon’s offer yet — Buca Di Beppo, a company that operates 90 Italian restaurants, is the first and only signee so far — but the opportunity for them to do so is now available.
So far, Amazon Restaurants — which allows users to order food and have it delivered in under an hour — hasn’t attracted major chain restaurants. Right now, the service is available in about 20 cities in the US including New York, Chicago, Seattle, Los Angeles, and Miami, but as with most Amazon products, that list will be expanded over time.
“We’re thrilled to work with Amazon to provide Olo’s base of restaurant customers with a new delivery sales channel that drives increased visibility,” Olo CEO Noah Glass said in a statement.
“Amazon’s obsession with providing great customer and restaurant experience supports the evolving expectations and behaviors of today’s consumer. We’re excited to connect more of Olo’s restaurant brands with Amazon Restaurants.”
Amazon Restaurants is available to Amazon Prime members. Besides competing with all the other delivery players, Chipotle delivery also gives Amazon yet another edge in its continued quest for every human on the planet to sign up for Prime.
“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,” Amazon Restaurants General Manager Gus Lopez said in a statement.
“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.”
