Amazon Restaurants launches one-hour delivery in Brooklyn.
SEATTLE – Amazon.com announced Oct. 25 that its Prime members in Brooklyn, New York, can now get one-hour free delivery from more than 130 popular restaurants. By using the Prime Now mobile app or visiting the Prime Now website, users can see a list of participating restaurants, browse menus, place orders, track delivery status and follow their order traveling to their door in real time.
“We are excited to bring Brooklyn’s vibrant food scene right to our customers’ door with free delivery in an hour or less,” said Gus Lopez, general manager, Amazon Restaurants. “Prime members are loving the convenience of superfast delivery and now customers can choose from more than 500 restaurants available in Manhattan and Brooklyn.”
Delivery within an hour is free. Prime Now’s restaurant delivery pricing contains no hidden mark ups or service fees. If a customer finds a menu item that is priced higher than the restaurant’s menu within 24 hours, Amazon will refund the customer the price of that item.
“Having opened our doors in downtown Brooklyn two years ago, Hill Country is excited to get our food to even more fans across all of Brooklyn,” said March Glosserman, founder and CEO of Hill Country Group. “We are excited to be partnering with an ecommerce and logistics leader like Amazon which, like us, puts the customer experience first.”
