After opening its first grocery pickup locations with AmazonFresh and having purchased Whole Foods earlier this summer, Amazon’s venture into the food industry continues by forming a new partnership with digital company, Olo.
Olo is a mobile and online food ordering platform which focuses on large restaurant brands and chains that allows customers to order and pay for delivery and takeout food online.
Some of their notable clients include Chipotle, Shake Shack, Cold Stone Creamery, Five Guys and Jamba Juice, with over 200 restaurants on their list that have a total of around 40,000 US locations.
With the agreement leaving Olo to handle the menu and ordering of purchases, Amazon Restaurants will be in charge of delivery, while the value for Amazon here is it gives them potential access to the many different chain restaurants in Olo’s client base.
Recently, the company is also looking to buy James Bond film rights.
