NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Olo, the leading online food ordering solution for the restaurant industry, announced today that the company is engaging with EatStreet to enable integrated delivery through Olo’s Rails platform. EatStreet is one of the largest independent online and mobile food ordering services in the U.S., serving 250 markets and connecting consumers to more than 15,000 restaurants. The partnership will provide consumers and restaurant partners with a more convenient, streamlined food delivery experience for smaller markets across the country.
EatStreet has integrated into Olo’s application programming interface (API) called Rails, which enables restaurants to efficiently receive, process and execute delivery orders through delivery service providers. Rails eliminates the need for extensive and disparate delivery management in individual restaurant locations by allowing restaurant operators to list menu items on third-party marketplaces, ultimately reaching more consumers. Additionally, orders placed on EatStreet are integrated into the restaurant’s POS and other existing systems through Olo Rails, decreasing time spent on logistics and increasing order accuracy through a seamless experience.
“EatStreet was a clear choice to partner with given their extensive reach and mastery of delivery logistics,” said Noah Glass, Founder & CEO of Olo. “Their vast network covers more than 250 cities across the U.S. in underserved markets, providing our restaurant clients with much broader coverage for delivery in many key markets. Coverage is a big part of the discussion for brands and this partnership with EatStreet helps to address that in a centralized way for our restaurant clients.”
“Olo is an innovative, forward-thinking technology player that has a real grasp on the needs of the on-demand consumer today,” said Matt Howard, CEO and co-founder of EatStreet. “We look forward to aiding their restaurant partners in providing a simplified delivery experience to customers.”
Olo empowers its restaurants to offer guests counter and curbside pickup for orders placed by phone, web, mobile web, app, Amazon’s Alexa-enabled devices and more, as well as delivery through Olo Dispatch and Olo Rails. Olo integrates into 25 leading point-of-sale (POS) systems enabling accurate order preparation and completion while eliminating wait times and in-store tablets to ensure the best customer experience.
Olo is the on-demand interface for the restaurant industry, powering digital ordering and delivery for over 200 restaurant brands across 40,000 locations. Olo’s enterprise-grade software powers every stage of the digital restaurant transaction, from fully-branded guest interfaces to the back-of-house order management features that keep the kitchen running smoothly. Orders from Olo are injected seamlessly into existing systems to help brands capture demand from on-demand channels such as the brand’s website and app, third-party marketplaces, social media channels, and personal assistant devices like the Amazon Echo.
