As part of the deal, the food delivery firm will serve orders from Houlihan’s restaurants across all corporate markets from 16 September. Customers can place orders through the restaurant chain’s website.

Houlihan’s Restaurants chief marketing officer Bill Leibengood said: “With football season and tailgate parties getting in full swing, the debut of our new delivery option is perfect timing.

“We are in the hospitality business where we want to ensure our guests are receiving the best experience possible.

“If they aren’t able to join us at one of our restaurants for lunch or dinner, we definitely want to do everything we can to make their at-home or at-work dining experience just as memorable.”

Houlihan’s initially piloted the delivery partnership with DoorDash serving select locations in New Jersey, New York (Long Island) and Kansas City in the US.

The companies will start offering the service from restaurants in Naperville, Orland Park, Wheaton, Geneva, Algonquin, Chicago on 4 September.

This will be followed by an introduction into the remaining locations, including Dallas / Ft Worth (Addison, Garland, Ft Worth), San Antonio / Live Oak, Grand Rapids, Lansing, Columbus / Upper Arlington, Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Indianapolis on 16 September.

Leibengood noted that DoorDash will use thermal bags to keep food hot or cold while limiting the delivery radius to ensure food faster delivery.

Based in Leawood, Kansas, Houlihan’s Restaurants currently operates 62 Houlihan’s Restaurant + Bar locations in the country.

Earlier this month, DoorDash signed a definitive agreement to acquire food-ordering platform Caviar from financial and merchant services aggregator Square.
