If the restaurant partners with multiple food-ordering companies, a menu pops up asking users which service they want to order through. It also connects directly with brands such as Five Guys, Papa John's, Wingstop, Jack in the Box, TGI Fridays, Denny's, El Pollo Loco, Chipotle, Jimmy John's, and Panera Bread.
A new "order food" feature rolled out for U.S. users lets Facebook users order delivery or takeout from restaurant chains such as Papa John's and Panera, and on-demand services including Delivery.com and DoorDash. "You can even check out what your friends have to say about a restaurant before you order your food". They then choose a local restaurant that supports one of the participating delivery services and hit "start order". The process works the same way - simply select the restaurant and Facebook will redirect you to their ordering service. Once you do, Facebook will bring up an in-app browser that takes you through the existing websites for Delivery.com and the others.
Reminding you of your friends' birthdays, showing you which of your relatives is racist, meddling in global geopolitics. truly there is nothing Facebook can't do. So people can place an order on Facebook. You will also pay within Facebook, in an experience powered by either Delivery.com or Slice.
The service is available everywhere in the USA on iOS, Android and desktop. As long as your Facebook app is updated, you'll see the newly added "Order Food" tab in the Explore section on the bottom right of your page.
Facebook dove into the crowded world of delivery Friday, announcing in a blog post that it officially launched the ability to order food for pick-up or delivery directly from its massive platform.
Facebook has been testing the service for the past year.
"Order Food", this new feature has been introduced for USA users and we can hope for it to be released in other countries as well, soon.
This is just the latest in the company's continued expansion into daily life, after the introduction of Facebook Marketplace (its own Craigslist), Town Hall (a listing of local representatives), job listings, and taxi calling capability within its messaging app.
