Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 12, 2008
GrubHub.com announced a partnership today with restaurant delivery service DiningIn to add over 200 Chicago and Boston area restaurants to its Web Site. The partnership will offer GrubHub users more delivery choices. Dining In is an extension for the hospitality industry, providing a delivery service for restaurants that do not currently deliver. As an exclusive offer to GrubHub.com, Dining In is also offering 50% off its delivery fees when users order online through GrubHub.com.
DiningIn's restaurant partners include popular restaurants like Jae's Café, Portillo's, Maggiano's, Kennedy's Midtown Grill, Rosebud and Weber Grill. The partnership allows GrubHub users to order from these restaurants and others at a reduced price. Users can view menus and available coupons, read reviews, and order for free by phone or on the Web site using GrubHub's online ordering system. DiningIn's large selection of restaurants adds to GrubHub's diverse list of delivery choices, now over 7,000 in Chicago, Boston, San Francisco and New York City.
"Our mission has always been to provide our users with information on the delivery options available in their area. Partnering with DiningIn now allows us to cover not only the restaurants that deliver themselves, but also those that use DiningIn for their delivery services. The fact that we can pass on a discount in the process makes this even more exciting for us," said GrubHub.com CEO Matt Maloney.
"The partnership between Dining In and GrubHub.com is an exciting opportunity for both companies to combine strengths. We're really looking forward to adding significant value to our shared community of customers," said Lindsey Webster, Marketing Director for DiningIn.
GrubHub.com came into existence in 2004. Matt Maloney and Mike Evans, two Chicago software developers frustrated by the lack of restaurant delivery and takeout information available on the Internet, built a comprehensive Web site for users to find out who delivered to their exact addresses. When users type in their address on GrubHub.com, the site displays all of the restaurants that deliver to that location, with the appropriate hours for delivery, full menus, available coupons, reviews and star ratings. Users can order for free by phone or online with participating restaurants using GrubHub's online ordering system.
