It has officially been announced by Facebook that it will allow the US users to place a food order through the Facebook application. The ordered food will be delivered by the local restaurants chains like Panera, Papa John, Jimmy John’s Wingstop, Denny, Five Guys, TGI Fridays, Jack in the Box, El Pollo Loco, and many other on-demand services such as DoorDash and Delivery.com.
The company may utilize its partnership with existing delivery services including Zuppler, Slice, ChowNow, Olo and EatStreet, who will fulfill the orders placed by the Facebook users through the app.
According to the social media giant, TechCrunch has decided to avoid competing directly with the food ordering and delivery services. The new food order option has been there in the process of testing from last year. And now, after adding many partners and users feedback responding, the company has decided to roll out the service over the users in the United States on their Android, Windows and iOS devices.
The vice president of Facebook, Alex Himel stated in a blog post that, “People already go to Facebook to figure out what to eat by reading about nearby restaurants, and seeing what their friends say about them. So, we’re making it even easier.
He added, “From local spots to national chains, Facebook connects you with old favorites and new discoveries in just a few taps. You can even check out what your friends have to say about a restaurant before you order your food.”
In addition, Facebook has introduced recently with the more other features like weather info, jobs board, movies listings, instant games, getting quotes, fundraisers, booking appointments and many more.
