EatStreet partners with UberRUSH to improve food delivery in Chicago

EatStreet, the Madison-based independent online and mobile food ordering service, and Uber are working together to expand the companies’ online food delivery reach beginning with the Chicago market. EatStreet will integrate a new private API for UberRUSH into existing infrastructure that will optimize restaurant delivery placed through EatStreet’s online and mobile platforms.

This back-end solution will allow small- to mid-size restaurants an additional opportunity into the quickly growing food delivery space. Large restaurants, which may already have that capability, will be able to leverage this on-demand feature to get food to customers even faster.

The new API is being piloted in Chicago with the intention of taking it to additional cities. EatStreet is currently in 250 cities and mostly focuses on tier two markets across the United States.
