Amazon Expanding Restaurant Delivery Service To All Prime Now Markets

img_3060 (1)Just two months after launching the Prime restaurant delivery service in Seattle, Amazon plans to rapidly expand the service to 20 major cities already served by its quick-delivery Prime Now program.

Restaurant deliveries went live in Los Angeles and surrounding areas on Wednesday, with cities, including New York City, Houston, Dallas, Las Vegas, Atlanta and others, expected to join the list in coming weeks.

Using the Prime Now mobile app, members of Amazon’s $99/year subscription program can view participating restaurants, browse menus, place orders and track the status of their delivery. Once an order is placed, Amazon delivery drivers pick up and deliver the food within an hour or less. [TechCrunch]
