Foodora Launches Pick-up Service in Canada to Add Flexibility for Foodies

This week foodora, an on-demand food delivery service, announced it is expanding its service offering by adding a pick-up feature to the platform.

Known for its pink bicycle couriers, foodora delivers quality eats from local restaurants in Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver. Customers in each city can now order ahead via the website or apps.

“Our mission at foodora is simple: We aim to bring good food into our users’ lives every day, and we’re continuously looking for innovative ways to do so,” said David Albert, foodora Canada’s managing director. “With our latest pick-up feature, we’re giving users more choice and flexibility to seamlessly fit food ordering into their schedules, whether it’s by making pick up an option, or delivering straight to their door.”

Participating restaurants include Flock and Ravi Soups in Toronto; Ramen Koika and Hubbub in Vancouver; and Brigade and Le Poke Bar in Montreal.

“Now customers coming home from work can swing by their favourite restaurant and grab dinner on the way, and we love that this feature will bring more customers through our restaurant partners doors,” said Albert. “The pick-up feature is perfect for those who don’t like waiting in line, or those who want to pick up a meal but won’t meet the minimum spend requirement for a foodora delivery.”

Berlin’s Foodora entered the Canadian market in 2015, when they acquired Hurrier, a Toronto-based food delivery service. In one year, foodora has grown from 250 restaurants to 870, with plans to add hundreds more by the end of 2017.
