Facebook launches USA food order and delivery service

  • Now You Can Order Food On Facebook App

This new feature is available in U.S. only and let's your order food from restaurants like Jack in the box, Papa John's and food ordering services like Olo, Delivery.com etc. It... Facebook's "Order Food" option will not magically enable everyone to order takeout with any dining establishment stat. Zuckerberg's company had to first partner up with some of the major restaurants with their own food delivery capabilities like Papa John's, Wingstop, Panera, Jack in the Box, TGI Friday's, Denny's, El Pollo Loco, Chipotle, Five Guys and Jimmy John's. Other countries might have to wait for some time to get the service or Facebook might keep it USA exclusive. Internet users can now get their snack through the app itself.

Facebook confirmed that the new Order Food feature has been in testing for over a year.

Facebook believes that ordering food for takeout or delivery is supposed to be simple, but that somehow the process has become complicated. "You can even check out what your friends have to say about a restaurant before you order your food", notes the company's website.

The new Order Food feature is rolling out to all users in the US on Android, iOS and desktop.

In the Facebook app, go to the Explore menu click or tap the new "Order Food" option.

You will be directed to the food delivery service for that restaurant (Delivery.com, DoorDash, ChowNow, Zuppler, EatStreet, Slice or Olo). For example, if you choose a restaurant and they are offering delivery services through Delivery.com, you can choose it and login with your current Delivery.com credentials.
