Grubhub Online Food Delivery Service Expands To Chattanooga

Monday, April 9, 2018

 Grubhub, an online food-ordering company, has expanded its delivery capabilities to 34 more markets across 19 states, including Chattanooga.

S. that already have Grubhub Delivery capabilities, which allow restaurants to offer their menus for delivery and provide diners with better restaurant choice and variety, it was stated.

Restaurants partnering with Grubhub for delivery include national and regional options like Buffalo Wild WingsBJ's Restaurants & BrewhouseRed Robin Gourmet Burgers and BrewsOn the Border and The Cheesecake Factory in many markets.

As Yum! Brands' only national partner for ordering and delivery, Grubhub will also be adding KFC and Taco Bell locations to these markets across the country in the coming months.

"We're thrilled to expand our delivery offering to these markets across the U.S., making quick progress on our plan to expand our delivery capabilities throughout the coming year," said  Stan Chia , chief operating officer, Grubhub. "These additional markets are part of our vision to connect more diners with even more of their favorite local restaurants across the country, and provide them with the widest selection of choice wherever they are.

"Grubhub has always connected diners with restaurants that supply their own drivers. With Grubhub Delivery, restaurants without their own delivery capabilities now have the opportunity to leverage Grubhub's large and growing network of drivers to expand their customer base and grow order volume. This also provides better restaurant choices and variety for Grubhub diners, as more restaurants can now offer their menus for delivery."
