TORONTO — The popular on-demand food-delivery service Foodora is adding a pick-up option to its list of services in Canada. Currently, Foodora operates in Toronto, Montreal and, most recently, Vancouver. Starting today, customers across the three provinces will be able to order their food before arriving at their chosen restaurant from the Foodora website or its iOS and Android apps.
“Our mission at Foodora is simple — we aim to bring good food into our users’ lives every day and we’re continuously looking for innovative ways to do so,” says David Albert, Foodora Canada’s managing director. “With our latest pick-up feature, we’re giving users more choice and flexibility to seamlessly fit food ordering into their schedules, whether it’s by making pick-up an option, or delivering straight to their door.”
Customers can specify an exact pick-up time and pre-pay for the ordered items, allowing them to save time by avoiding long ques at the restaurant.
Participating restaurants currently include Flock and Ravi Soups in Toronto; Ramen Koika and Hubbub in Vancouver; and Brigade and Le Poke Bar in Montreal.
“Now customers coming home from work can swing by their favourite restaurant and grab dinner on the way, and we love that this feature will bring more customers through our restaurant partners’ doors,” says Albert. “The pick-up feature is perfect for those who don’t like waiting in line, or those who want to pick up a meal but won’t meet the minimum-spend requirement for a Foodora delivery.”
