OpenTable has announced it has expanded delivery to Canada through a partnership with Uber Eats, with an update to its iOS app. This marks the first time in 20 years OpenTable has debuted a feature beyond restaurant reservations, says the company.
The update brings a new “Get it delivered” button to a restaurant’s profile page, indicating delivery with Uber Eats is available. Diners selecting the option will get directed to Uber Eats to complete their meal order.
“Sometimes plans change or the weather doesn’t cooperate. Even if reservations need to be cancelled, diners can now still enjoy the meal they had planned from home,” said Joseph Essas, CTO, OpenTable, in an issued statement to iPhone in Canada. “Our goal is to make OpenTable the go-to app for all dining occasions. Adding delivery is an important next step.”
OpenTable says Uber Eats will support delivery from close to 700 restaurants across seven provinces in Canada. A future update will bring estimated delivery time and cost features.
“Being able to deliver meals from OpenTable’s restaurant partners helps expand the variety of menu options available. That’s why we’re so excited to partner with OpenTable to deliver meals to diners from their favourite restaurants,” added Jeremy Downs, Director of Business Development at Uber Eats.
