SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 20, 2015--
Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) today announced that Prime Now customers
in Portland can now enjoy free delivery from local restaurants and food
carts, including Pok Pok, Sizzle Pie, Waffle Window, Seres Restaurant,
Luc Lac, East India Co Grill & Bar, Kim Jong Grillin’ and many more.
Using the Prime Now mobile app, Portland customers can view
participating restaurants, browse menus, place orders, track the status
of their delivery, and watch as the driver travels from the restaurant
to the delivery address in real time.
Once an order is placed, Amazon delivery drivers pick up and deliver the
food within an hour or less. The average delivery time since introducing
restaurant delivery on Prime Now is 39 minutes.
“Portland has emerged as one of America’s best food cities,” said Gus
Lopez, general manager, Amazon Restaurants. “With restaurant delivery on
Prime Now, we’re excited to provide Portland residents with a fast and
convenient way to try many of the restaurants that their friends and
neighbors talk about without having to drive all over the city.”
Starting today, restaurant delivery on Prime Now is available in select
Portland zip codes and will expand in the coming days. Prime members can
download the Prime Now app and enter their zip code to see if Prime Now
is available in their area. In zip codes where restaurant delivery is
available, customers will see Restaurants on the home page.
“Waffle Window is about great food fast, and with Prime Now we can
deliver on that promise to even more customers across Portland,” said
Mary O'Rourke, co-owner, Waffle Window. “This is the first time we have
offered restaurant delivery and we are excited for what it means for our
business and most importantly our customers, who can now enjoy our
waffles from the comfort of their home.”
“We are excited to be able to offer delivery to long-time fans, who
after a long day of work, maybe don’t want to brave the wait list or
head out in the rain,” said Timothy Crabtree, general manager, Pok Pok.
“Prime Now will allow us to make it easier for our customers to get the
food they love. We also trust Amazon to ensure our food gets to our
customers without a compromise in quality.”
Restaurant delivery on Prime Now offers customers transparent
pricing—there are no menu markups or hidden service fees, and delivery
on all orders is free for a limited time. Customers pay using the
information already stored in their Amazon account and orders are backed
by Amazon’s award-winning customer service.
