US-based food pre-ordering startup Allset has expanded its services by adding order haead, pickup meals and pay service to customers on its platform.
The new service enables diners to order ahead as fast as ten minutes ahead, and pick up their food at desired restaurant. It also allows customers to place their orders ten minutes in advance.
According to the company, the service will be available in 11 cities including New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Houston, Boston, Seattle, Austin, San Jose, Las Vegas, and Miami.
The delivery platform initially offered dine-in only service and this expansion allows diners to place orders for both dine-in and pickup meals before arriving at the restaurant.
Allset CEO Stas Matviyenko said: “We love and encourage the idea of dining out. However, our users’ demand for takeaway food remains high.
“We’ve decided to satisfy our users’ needs fully. Now everyone who uses Allset can choose whether they want to pick up their food or enjoy a quick dine-in meal inside the restaurant.
“With this update, Allset will be the only food ordering app that offers both dine-in and pickup options to diners.”
Mr.East Kitchen manager Victor Amporndanai said: “At Mr.East Kitchen, it’s all about fresh and quality. Allset’s new pick up service helps customers during the rush hour when space is all crowded.”
Allset currently offers services from more than 2,000 restaurants including Bj’s Restaurants and Brewhouse, Buffalo Wild Wings, Subway, Bareburger, Pokéworks, Freshii, The Bean, Noon Mediterranean, by Chloe, and The Halal Guys in the US.
The company also raised a total of $8.35m in funding from various investors such as Andreessen Horowitz, Greycroft Partners, Vaizra Investments, Compound, FJ Labs, SMRK VC Fund, and private investor and entrepreneur Alexandr Chernyak.
