Grubhub Partners with Portland Food Carts to Power SMBs and Bring Diners Local Favorites
PORTLAND, Ore., Sept. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Grubhub, the nation’s leading takeout marketplace, announced today that it has partnered with Portland’s legendary food cart collection. Portlanders can now have their favorite food cart flavors delivered from the foodie hot spots of Rose City Park, Portland Mercado and Happy Valley Station via a customized website.
The partnership highlights Grubhub’s dedication to small businesses and diners. It will create new ways to connect hungry diners to their favorite local cuisines and empower restaurants to reach more customers than ever before.
“Portland’s food carts are legendary for bringing unique flavors to diners and offering chefs an alternative to opening a traditional restaurant,” said Greg Trombley, Grubhub director, Portland co-site leader and former managing partner at Portland-based Delivered Dish. “We’re thrilled to support the community with an easy, efficient way to order food cart favorites, while providing independent vendors with vital tools to grow their business.”
Grubhub’s expansion to Portland food carts exemplifies the company’s commitment to reinventing how restaurants do business. Through this partnership, Grubhub will help restaurants enhance their takeout and delivery experiences and open up additional revenue streams.
“I grew up on Puerto Rican food; it feels like home to me. I want to share that feeling with the Portland community that embraces the food culture I love,” said Karlo Prado, owner and operator of Carlito’s Cocina, a Puerto Rican-inspired food cart at Portland Mercado. “Partnering with Grubhub will expand my customer base and increase orders, especially during fall and winter when people are less likely to visit food parks.”
Grubhub has built a customized website through which hungry diners can filter and search for their favorite cuisines in their preferred food park. To see the full list of participating food carts, please visit: http://foodcarts.grubhub.com/portland/.
Grubhub has now partnered with food carts in a range of cities across the country, including Austin, Los Angeles and Miami.
