The company has partnered with Deliveroo and UberEats to enable diners to select and order a restaurant-quality meal and have it delivered direct to their door. This, it says, gives diners the opportunity to continue supporting their favourite restaurants while bringing a much-needed additional revenue source to the restaurant.
When searching for a restaurant or visiting a restaurant profile page on OpenTable’s app or via website, diners will now see a ‘Get a delivery’ button alongside the usual table reservation option. Those who choose delivery are then directed to either the Deliveroo or UberEats site to complete their transaction.
The partnership will allow restaurants to offer delivery options through OpenTable in countries including Australia, Mexico, Ireland, Spain, Italy and the Netherlands, through the OpenTable app and via its desktop site.
The company says the launch will see more than 3,000 restaurants offer delivery through OpenTable.
The global launch follows the introduction of the delivery feature with UberEats and other local partners in the US and Canada last year.
“Restaurants are a vital part of our communities, and we hope these partnerships will help support restaurants with additional revenue sources and give diners access to restaurant quality meals to enjoy at home during these difficult times,” says OpenTable COO Andrea Johnston.
