Busy employees don't have to worry about stepping away from the office anymore now that the online food delivery service OrderUp is available to Cincinnatians.
Hungry people can use OrderUp on the web or via a mobile device to order food from more than 35 different local eateries and have it delivered to their home or office. Participating restaurants include favorites like Tom + Chee, Chipotle, Skyline and Einstein Bros Bagels.
When a user enters his or her address, the site generates a list of all the restaurants that deliver there. Currently, delivery is available to Mount Adams, the Banks, downtown and Over-the-Rhine, and the app will launch in Clifton on Aug. 25.
Standard delivery hours are 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5 to 9 p.m. Those will likely expand in coming weeks, according to OrderUp public relations director Renee Beck.
Drivers and restaurant owners can apply online to work with OrderUp. Restaurants select their own hours and days for delivery and can opt to perform their own delivery or work with an OrderUp driver.
Co-founders Jason Kwicien and Chris Jeffrey started the company in 2009 out of their dorm room at Penn State University. The company is based in Baltimore and works with more than 1,000 restaurants in nearly 40 mid-sized markets across the nation. OrderUp was acquired by Groupon on July 16See Original Article
