Amazon Will Soon Deliver Shake Shack and Chipotle Right to Your Door

Amazon Will Soon Deliver Shake Shack and Chipotle Right to Your Door”

Somewhere in the near future, you might be getting Chipotle burrito bowls delivered right to your front door, courtesy of Amazon. After all, they've introduced Amazon Fresh and drive-through grocery pickup.

Amazon's vision, according to its own verbiage, is to be the "Earth's most customer centric company; to build a place where people can come to find and discover anything they might want to buy online". With the recent acquisition of Whole Foods, the e-retailer added more than 400 grocery stores to its physical retailing network. A new partnership with a company called Olo might help with that. "This integration will enable Amazon Restaurants to onboard new restaurants easily, as well as quickly add more new choices and delivery options for customers". That's because the company just partnered with Olo, a New York-based food delivery service that allows customers to order from 200 different restaurant brands with more than 40,000 locations in the US.

Olo, the leading online food ordering company for the restaurant industry is teaming up with Amazon for the sole objective of delivering you food from your favorite fast-casual restaurants.

Other restaurants that could be including Applebee's, Chili's, Denny's, Jamba Juice, Noodles & Company, Red Robin, Shake Shack and sweetgreen. They focus on large restaurant brands and chains, with over 200 restaurants on their list that have a total of around 40,000 United States locations. "We're excited to connect more of Olo's restaurant brands with Amazon Restaurants". It remains to be seen whether this will pay off for Amazon, but it seems like a smart and relatively row-risk move for the online retail giant.
