Caviar Launches Pickup to Help Diners Skip the Line
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,” says 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,” says 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.
