SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/
-- OpenTable, the world's leading provider of
online restaurant reservations and part of Booking Holdings Inc.
(NASDAQ: BKNG), today released new survey findings
highlighting delivery habits and revealing a growing appetite for
convenience. In tandem, OpenTable also announced a new partnership
with Postmates, the #1 on-demand delivery platform in
Los Angeles and the Southwest, to
bring even more delivery and pick-up options to diners on its iOS
and Android apps.
According to a recent survey commissioned by OpenTable,
Americans are starting to break up with their kitchens with 41
percent dining out at least once a week and nearly one third
considering delivery to be a top alternative. Six out of 10 (62
percent) respondents choose to order delivery because they like
eating in the comfort of their own home, with 59 percent sharing
that it's often due to feeling burned out after a long day. Still,
42 percent say they actually plate their delivery meals with real
silverware and plates to closely replicate the restaurant dining
experience. For additional survey data on what Americans are
getting delivered, where and how they are eating it and more,
please visit the OpenTable blog.
"Since launching delivery options in July, we continue to hear
how comfort and convenience are sometimes the priority for our
diners along with top-notch, restaurant quality meals," said
Joseph Essas, Chief Technology
Officer at OpenTable. "Our goal is to make OpenTable the go-to app
for all dining occasions, and expanding our delivery capabilities
with Postmates is one way we're addressing those priorities."
Postmates serves more than 75% of US households and
joins Caviar, Grubhub and Uber Eats as the newest
partner to offer delivery and pick-up options on OpenTable.
Combined, these partners power delivery for nearly 10,000
restaurants in North America on
the OpenTable app. In addition, the OpenTable iOS app now shows
estimated delivery times for each provider, giving diners an even
more comprehensive look at their dining options.
"Postmates' mission is to enable anyone to have anything
delivered on-demand," said Vivek
Patel, Postmates COO. "Through this partnership, we're
excited to bring this mission to OpenTable's network of diners and
bring new customers to the thousands of restaurants on our platform
that are found on OpenTable."
