If you’ve ordered lunch for your office, you understand the disappointment when you realize most of the restaurants you love do not offer delivery or catering. Recently, our Nashville based offices started using a great food delivery service called Postmates and our troubles have been solved.
Postmates is a growing delivery service company out of San Francisco. Their mission is “to become the on-demand delivery infrastructure for every major city in the world” and they are well on their way serving over 40 major metropolitan markets (see list) in the US.
Here’s how it works. After setting up an account, you select a restaurant in your area, which in Nashville is a pretty impressive list of local and chain restaurants. Each restaurant has complete menu items and a custom order option. Once your order is complete, the app searches for a Postmates driver in your area. What makes this service so special is you receive a photo of your driver and can track their route in real time. The driver will text you along the way with progress and your food will arrive under an hour.
We have had a lot of success using Postmates and they are always running specials like free donuts or discounted delivery. Visit the Postmates website to see if they are available in your city and download the app on iTunes or Google Play.
