Amazon Ends Restaurant Delivery

Tuesday, June 11th, 2019

Reports have funneled in through GeekWire that Amazon is gearing up to close down its Amazon Restaurants food delivery service. The service launched in Seattle in 2015, after which Amazon began implementing the program across more than 20 U.S. cities and London, England.

In November, GeekWire reports, Amazon ended the London program and now expects to close down U.S. operations in June 2019.

“As of June 24th, we will discontinue the Amazon Restaurants Business in the U.S.,” an Amazon spokesperson expressed in a statement that was then shared with GeekWire. “Many of the small number of employees affected by this decision have already found new roles at Amazon, and others will be provided personalized support to find a new role within, or outside of, the company.”

Additionally, the e-tailer will shut down Daily Dish, a workplace lunch delivery system, on June 14, 2019.

Although this move is rather unprecedented for Amazon, does it have a backup plan for restaurant delivery? Or is it moving out of this sector for good? Deli Market News will continue to report.
