Amazon Expands its Food Delivery Service to San Francisco

Amazon Expands its Food Delivery Service to San Francisco


SAN FRANCSICO, CA
Tuesday, April 26th, 2016

Amazon has announced that it will be dishing up its fresh, hot restaurant delivery service to a new market. Beginning this week, Amazon Prime customers in San Francisco will be able to order food on-demand from over 115 local restaurants, and get free, one-hour delivery as part of the Prime Now Restaurant Delivery program.

To spice up the deal, Amazon has offered zero markup to menu prices and a price-match guarantee. According to a report from TechCrunch, customers who discover a price discrepancy can notify Amazon within 24 hours and have the difference refunded.

Amazon has rapidly expanded its delivery service, with San Francisco now representing the eighth market to launch since September 2015. Prime Now Restaurant Delivery is currently available in San Diego, Chicago, Seattle, Los Angeles, Baltimore, Austin, and Portland.

The move doesn't come without its price, however. TechCrunch speculated that Amazon is likely taking a loss while scaling its food delivery service, reporting that without markups on prices, Amazon’s ability to turn a profit is “less likely.” According to the report, the price-match guarantee is intended to aggressively establish market share in a crowded industry.

Prime Now Restaurant Delivery is the latest competitor in a rising food delivery service industry. In San Francisco, Amazon will compete directly with established restaurant delivery services including GrubHub, Seamless, Caviar, Munchery, Postmates, and UberEATS.

Notable restaurant names in the San Francisco rollout will include Big Chef Tom’s Belly Burgers, DOSA, The Monk’s Kettle, Nick’s Crispy Tacos, and Pressed Juicery. The full list of zip codes and restaurants is available here and also below.
