GrubHub Buys OC's Restaurants On The Run
Online dining ordering service GrubHub has acquired Aliso Viejo-based Restaurants On The Run, the provider of restaurant delivery services which serves Los Angeles, San Francisco, Orange County, San Diego, Houston, Seattle, Las Vegas and Tulsa Oklahoma. Financial terms of the buy were not disclosed. The acquisition was announced on Thursday, as part of a major strategic shift by GrubHub to not only enable to-go orders for restaurants, but a shift where GrubHub itself will deiver those orders. GrubHub said has been conducting its own, delivery tests for the past year, and wants to own the delivery experience to improve the diner experience for users. GrubHub said the move will allow it to start offering up deliveries for almost 3,000 restaurants across the United States.
