Facebook Takes on Food Delivery, Challenges Uber and Others

Facebook said it has partnered with restaurants including Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc, Jack in the Box Inc, Five Guys and Papa John's International Inc.

After a year of suspected intent and speculation, Facebook has launched a foodservice pilot that challenged the likes of Uber Eats, Amazon Restaurants, and other such delivery systems to consumers. You can even check out what your friends have to say about a restaurant before you order your food.

In its attempt to keep users inside its app, Facebook Inc. has launched a "food order" feature for U.S. users.

Of course, using Facebook to order food might prompt users to spend more time perusing their news feeds - and seeing ads. Internet users can now get their snack through the app itself.

Users should find the new delivery option in the latest Facebook app as it rolls out to desktop, Android and iOS devices in the USA now.

"People already go to Facebook to figure out what to eat by reading about nearby restaurants, and seeing what their friends say about them". On this page, you can browse food options and select Start Order when you've found what you're looking for.

You'll be able to see restaurants nearby that are up for picking up your meals, including Delivery.com, DoorDash and ChowNow.

Orders can be placed for delivery or takeout, and you can use existing logins for their delivery partners.
