In order to compete with the likes of David Chang’s Maple, Seamless has expanded turnkey to New York’s outer boroughs

Seamless isn’t the only delivery game in town anymore, so it certainly has to compete.

Seamless or GrubHub used to be the go-to for hungry New Yorkers looking for ramen, pizza, or whatever-delivery, but now the market is flooded with delivery start-ups like David Chang’s Maple, Caviar, and even Uber, which is getting in on the delivery game.To compete with the New York-centric takeout saturation, Seamless has announced that it will be expanding its new turnkey service to the outer New York boroughs.

“New York is the mecca of food delivery, and that's in large part because Seamless transformed online and mobile ordering in the city," said Matt Maloney, CEO of Seamless in a statement. "But the city's takeout culture extends far beyond Manhattan to the outer boroughs, where some of today's most unique and innovative restaurants are making amazing food. We're proud to bring fast, professional delivery to restaurants in Brooklyn and Astoria that did not previously operate their own service, and to bring more local favorites to our outer borough diners."

Now, for a flat delivery rate of 99 cents, Brooklynites and Astoria residents can order from 10 different restaurants in those boroughs including Mighty Quinn’s Barbecue and Original Ramen Burger and receive their food in 30 minutes or less. The delivery rate could make Seamless more competitive in New York again because other delivery services charge higher rates.


Seamless was launched in 1999 by Jason Finger, Paul Appelbaum, Todd Arky [1] [2] [3] [4] and Andy Appelbaum as SeamlessWeb, providing companies with a web-based system for ordering food from restaurants and caterers. Starting in 2005, Seamless was made available to the individual users and they currently partner with over 12,000 restaurants, serve over 4,000 companies, and have over 2,000,000 members in the United States and in London. The service is available for personal orders in New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, DC, Miami, Chicago, Houston, Austin, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and London. They were acquired by Aramark in April 2006. On June 8, 2011, Spectrum Equity Investors made a $50 million minority investment in Seamless and the company was spun out of Aramark into an independent entity.

On June 28, 2011, SeamlessWeb notified their clients they had changed their name to Seamless.

In May 2013, Seamless announced the signing of an agreement to merge with GrubHub, creating a combined company with a higher order volume and improved regional coverage. [5]

On August 9, 2013, Seamless and GrubHub completed their merger and now operate under the name GrubHub, Inc. (formerly known as GrubHub Seamless). The merger resulted in connecting diners with approximately 25,000 restaurants for online and mobile-ordering across the United States and in London. In the first half of 2013, the combined organization processed approximately 130,000 orders per day. [6] [7] [8]

Users have the option of ordering from the website or from a Seamless mobile app for Android, BlackBerry, or iOS. Users enter their address, and Seamless returns a list of restaurants that will deliver to the submitted address. Users then select a restaurant, create an order from the online menu, and submit the order electronically by entering their credit card or a company billing code. Ratings, reviews, photos, tags, and other information is provided to help the user find the most appropriate meal.

Seamless does not prepare or deliver any food. Once a user submits an order, it is automatically sent to a dedicated computer terminal or fax machine at the restaurant. The restaurant confirms the order with Seamless and then prepares and delivers the order. At many restaurants, users also have the option to pick up their meals at the restaurant. The ordering process works in the same way, except that the user goes to the restaurant for their food instead of having the food delivered.

SeamlessWeb was recognized as the 4th fastest-growing private company in the United States in the 2004 Inc. 500 list. [9] The company had the highest rate of revenue growth among New York state technology companies in the 2005 Deloitte Technology Fast 50 program, [10] and was selected as one of TIME magazine's 50 Coolest Web Sites for 2006. [11]

In August 2009, SeamlessWeb was featured on the MSN web series Cool Runnings. In the episode, entitled "Carving a Niche in Online Food Delivery", host Antonio Neves interviewed key personnel at SeamlessWeb, along with the restaurants and companies they work with, providing important insights into how SeamlessWeb began and how it thrived. [12]

Jason Finger, co-founder and long-time CEO, won the 2007 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award for E-Services [13] and has received a number of other honors.

On June 28, 2011, SeamlessWeb notified their clients they had changed their name to Seamless.

In May 2013, Seamless announced the signing of an agreement to merge with GrubHub, creating a combined company with a higher order volume and improved regional coverage. [5]

On August 9, 2013, Seamless and GrubHub completed their merger and now operate under the name GrubHub, Inc. (formerly known as GrubHub Seamless). The merger resulted in connecting diners with approximately 25,000 restaurants for online and mobile-ordering across the United States and in London. In the first half of 2013, the combined organization processed approximately 130,000 orders per day. [6] [7] [8]

Users have the option of ordering from the website or from a Seamless mobile app for Android, BlackBerry, or iOS. Users enter their address, and Seamless returns a list of restaurants that will deliver to the submitted address. Users then select a restaurant, create an order from the online menu, and submit the order electronically by entering their credit card or a company billing code. Ratings, reviews, photos, tags, and other information is provided to help the user find the most appropriate meal.

Seamless does not prepare or deliver any food. Once a user submits an order, it is automatically sent to a dedicated computer terminal or fax machine at the restaurant. The restaurant confirms the order with Seamless and then prepares and delivers the order. At many restaurants, users also have the option to pick up their meals at the restaurant. The ordering process works in the same way, except that the user goes to the restaurant for their food instead of having the food delivered.

SeamlessWeb was recognized as the 4th fastest-growing private company in the United States in the 2004 Inc. 500 list. [9] The company had the highest rate of revenue growth among New York state technology companies in the 2005 Deloitte Technology Fast 50 program, [10] and was selected as one of TIME magazine's 50 Coolest Web Sites for 2006. [11]

In August 2009, SeamlessWeb was featured on the MSN web series Cool Runnings. In the episode, entitled "Carving a Niche in Online Food Delivery", host Antonio Neves interviewed key personnel at SeamlessWeb, along with the restaurants and companies they work with, providing important insights into how SeamlessWeb began and how it thrived.

Jason Finger, co-founder and long-time CEO, won the 2007 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award for E-Services [13] and has received a number of other honors.

    Girls lack femininity, and women lack virginity. Sculptural group: Hercules tearing the mouth of a peeing boy.

Drunkenness - fight! Fuck - fuck! Love is the triumph of imagination over intellect. I hate two things - racism and blacks.
