Groupon and Grubhub announced a partnership to bring food delivery to Groupon customers throughout the United States.
As part of the deal, the two companies have entered into a commercial agreement that will allow Groupon to provide users with the ability to order food delivery from Grubhub’s 55,000 restaurant partners via the Groupon platform and is expected to enable people to redeem deals when they order delivery via Groupon.
“We’re thrilled to join forces with Grubhub to vastly expand the number of food delivery options available through our marketplace,” said Rich Williams, CEO, Groupon. “This partnership connects two of the biggest players in local commerce and is a win for both consumers and restaurants by providing people with more savings and access to the food they want, when they want it.”
The company offers a vast mobile and online marketplace where people discover and save on things to do, see, eat and buy. By enabling real-time commerce across local businesses, travel destinations, consumer products and live events, shoppers can find the best a city has to offer.
In addition to the commercial agreement, Grubhub is acquiring certain assets in 27 company-owned OrderUp food delivery markets from Groupon. Grubhub will also power food ordering and delivery for the company’s Groupon To Go markets. Terms of the agreements were not disclosed.
“As a leader in local delivery, we’re always looking for more ways to make it easier for diners to find and order food wherever they may be,” said Matt Maloney, CEO, Grubhub. “Groupon’s massive, active mobile audience – and great savings opportunities – will help drive new customers and more order volume for our restaurant partners, further enhancing the value of the Grubhub network.”
Grubhub is the nation’s leading online and mobile takeout food-ordering marketplace with the most comprehensive network of restaurant partners and largest active diner base. Works with more than 55,000 restaurant partners in over 1,100 U.S. cities and London. The Grubhub portfolio of brands includes Grubhub, Seamless, AllMenus, and MenuPages.
