Welcome to First Bite, a Nation’s Restaurant News podcast, your daily source of news from NRN hosted by Holly Petre.
Today, we’re examining the new delivery contender.
Meet delivery’s newest player: Gopuff. The Philadelphia-based brand is doing it all. From cooking to delivering, Gopuff has its hands in every part of the food and consumer packaged goods aspect of the delivery business. It’s a unique business proposition NRN senior editor Joanna Fantozzi, tells First Bite host Holly Petre, because the company acts like a virtual brand and like Amazon.
Gopuff just signed its first restaurant deal, with BurgerFi. That partnership is going national, and Gopuff will soon deliver BurgerFi’s burgers and fries to customers in a dozen cities in the Gopuff network, including Miami, New York City, Nashville and Philadelphia. BurgerFi will also be available through more than 30 Gopuff Fresh Food Hall locations (Gopuff’s virtual food hall) around the country, even in locations where there are no brick-and-mortar BurgerFi stores.
