US-based family dining concept Black Bear Diner has partnered with on-demand food delivery service Postmates to deliver food to its customers.

The restaurant chain is offering the service in select markets where Postmates is currently available.

Black Bear Diner co-founder and CEO Bruce Dean said: “We are always keeping our guests top-of-mind, whether that’s through hospitality and a welcoming atmosphere in our restaurants or by making sure our delicious food is available conveniently through premium delivery.

“This partnership with Postmates will make it even easier for our customers to enjoy our delicious food at home.

“As one of the fastest growing franchises in the country, delivery is an important extension of our growth and we are looking forward to extending to our guests Postmates’ premium on-demand delivery experience.”

Postmates merchant lead SVP Dan Mosher said: “We are happy to add Black Bear Diner to our extensive list of partners and bring the popular restaurant’s home-style food to customers at home. We want to give our customers the most choices of any delivery platform so they have the power to have anything delivered, like Black Bear Diner, on demand.”

Customers can visit or download Postmates app to place orders through their mobile devices.

Free delivery can be availed by subscribing to Postmates subscription service, Postmates Unlimited, for an annual fee of $7.99 per month.

Black Bear Diner currently operates 131 locations in 13 states across the US. It offers a range of menu selections including housemade meatloaf, huevos rancheros to banana cream pie.

In December last year, the family dining chain expanded presence in the country with the addition of two new sites to its network.
