Facebook enables ordering food deliveries from platform

“Order Food:” Facebook’s takeout tool brings Panera Five Guys and more to your doorstep

In creating this new feature, Facebook worked with other app-based delivery systems, including Delivery.com, Grubhub and Seamless, among others, as well as restaurants that utilize in-app ordering.

You can also read friends' meal reviews.

Facebook has partnered with a number of food delivery services - Delivery.com, DoorDash, ChowNow, Zuppler, EatStreet, Slice, and Olo - and outlets - Papa John's, Wingstop, Panera, Jack in the Box, TGI Friday's, Denny's, El Pollo Loco, Chipotle, Five Guys and Jimmy John's - to give users a wide range of choice.

From local spots to national chains, Facebook would connect a user with old favourites and new discoveries and order food by checking the ratings by friends. Aside from virtual reality [VIDEO] possibilities, one method that Facebook is looking to fully implement is one that already exists in their #Messenger service in some form.

"First you need to decide what to eat, then you have to sift through a bunch of options and services", Facebook said in announcing the launch of the ability to order food for pick-up or delivery, directly on Facebook.
