CNBC’s Jon Fortt discusses the latest advancements in food delivery apps including GrubHub, Seamless, Amazon Key and DoorDash with Recode’s Ed Lee and Wired’s Erin Griffith (MOBILE DATA WARNING: This is a 26-minute video).
Amazon Key functions with in-home delivery when the customer is not home. Customers can use technology devices to watch the delivery, and to lock or unlock their doors of their own residence. Amazon Key launched on November 8, 2017 in 37 cities in the United States.
DoorDash uses logistics services to offer food delivery from participating restaurants on-demand. DoorDash uses its own drivers, similar to Uber or Uber Eats, so even restaurants that don’t usually offer delivery can appear on the app. Headquarters in San Francisco.
Grubhub is an online and mobile food-ordering company that connects diners with local restaurants. Grubhub has headquarters in Chicago, and has nearly 10 million active diners, and approximately 75,000 restaurant partners in over 1,300 cities across the United States and the United Kingdom.
Seamless (formerly SeamlessWeb) is an online food ordering service that allows users to order food for delivery and takeout from restaurants via the Seamless website or suite of mobile apps. Headquarters in New York City.
