Don't want to leave the house because it's way too cold outside? (Okay, "too cold" by Phoenix standards.) Well, that's fine. You don't have to get up or put on pants or take your eyes off the television screen at all in order to eat because as of this week, GrubHub now delivers in metro Phoenix.
The company, the nation’s leading online and mobile food-ordering and delivery platform, announced its expansion to the Phoenix market on Tuesday. Customers have been able to order online from Phoenix restaurants through GrubHub since 2011, but now you can also sit back and relax while the company's drivers bring food right to your door.
So far the company says more than 60 Phoenix restaurants are using the GrubHub platform to offer delivery. The list includes:
- The Parlor Pizzeria
- Arcadia Tavern
- Humble Pie – 7th Street
International House of Food
- SaBai Modern Thai
- Pink Pony
GrubHub’s delivery service launched in June 2014 and has since expanded to 30 markets. By the end of the year, the company expects delivery will be available in more than 40 markets across the country.
Other food delivery services, such as PostMates and DoorDash, also operate in metro Phoenix. DoorDash, best known for being the delivery service of choice for KFC and Taco Bell, is being sued in California by In-N-Out Burger for continuing to deliver the burger chain's food to customers despite multiple requests to stop.
