Amazon to Deliver Restaurant Food in Seattle
Amazon will begin using its fleet of drivers in Seattle to deliver restaurant food within an hour as part of Prime Now, according to a report by GeekWire.
The launch in Seattle will enable Prime customers to order meals from local restaurants including Cactus, Wild Ginger, Skillet, Marination Station, Re:public, Café Yumm, Ten Mercer, and Mamnoon.
The delivery service, which is integrated into the Prime Now mobile application, offers a variety of services including free two-hour delivery for Amazon Prime members. Through the app, customers can browse menus, place orders and track the status of their delivery in real time. Once an order is placed, Amazon delivery drivers pick up and deliver the food within an hour or less, GeekWire reports.
Unlike Uber Eats and other competitors, Amazon's food delivery fleet will be managing both product and food deliveries side-by-side. The launch of this service marks Amazon's entry into the food delivery market.
