Caviar Introduces Pickup, Creating Even More Ways for Diners to Order

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today Caviar
introduced Caviar pickup, a new feature that lets diners order ahead and
skip the line to pick up their food at their favorite restaurants.
Caviar, which partners directly with over 3,000 restaurants across the
U.S., is a high-quality food ordering platform that offers restaurant
delivery to individuals and groups of all sizes. The new pickup feature
is launching in San Francisco, the East Bay, Los Angeles, and Portland,
and will soon expand to customers in all Caviar markets across the
country. Pickup comes with no additional fees for diners and the feature
is available both online at trycaviar.com
and within the Caviar app for iOS.

We’ve been using Caviar pickup in beta for the last several weeks and
it’s definitely revealed an opportunity for sizable new volume in terms
of mobile orders,” said Evan Kidera, President of Señor Sisig, a popular
food truck in the Bay Area. “We understand how valuable our customers’
time is, and we recognize that our often long lines can be intimidating
for new customers wanting to try our food. We see the incredible
potential that Caviar pickup presents and we’re thrilled to offer our
customers more options to experience Señor Sisig on the go.”

Square also announced today the company’s acquisition of OrderAhead’s
pickup business, a convenient service that allows anyone to save time
and discover local restaurants by quickly ordering food for takeout
straight from their phone.

OrderAhead’s expertise in improving the restaurant ordering process for
busy diners and businesses is a great fit for Caviar and our commitment
to helping restaurants grow,” said Gokul Rajaram, Caviar Lead at Square.
This addition will accelerate Caviar pickup and give more food ordering
options to diners across the country.”

Caviar’s deep relationships with local restaurants, integration with
Square, and focus on using technology to improve back of house
operations, help restaurants of all sizes to grow their sales and expand
their reach. With the addition of Caviar pickup, Caviar now offers both
quick and reliable delivery and pickup to customers, giving restaurants
multiple ways to boost sales through a single platform. More information
