It's burritos and burgers, now? Is there anything Amazon won't deliver?

The service provides the tech platform to accept orders directly to point of sale systems of restaurants helping Amazon take control of its efforts to reach customers locally.

The deal will allow Prime members will be able to get one-hour delivery of food from local restaurants at menu price, according to the industry site pymnts.com. The partnership means that most restaurants using the Olo system will now be available for delivery on Amazon Restaurants. They had a successful promo for Olive Garden delivery. The service appeals largely to mom and pop shops that can benefit from exposure to Amazon customers and its delivery expertise, but it hasn't attracted many chains. It hasn't quite taken off, but that's where the Olo partnership comes in.

"We are excited to leverage Olo's digital ordering technology and continue rapidly growing our network of restaurants to give Amazon Prime members more options for fast delivery from their favorite brands", Lopez said.

There's no word yet on when the delivery service might start, as not all of the restaurants connected to Olo have confirmed being part of the deal, but once it's official there'll probably be nothing anyone can do to convince you to stand in a long line at your favorite restaurant again. The market for fast-food delivery orders placed through mobile apps was about $10 billion in 2016 and is expected to surpass $35 billion by 2020, according to research from Cowen. Their most recent service offering Rails, is an extension of the same control of ordering to the third-party consumer destinations such as Amazon Restaurants.

McDonald's Corp., after resisting calls to offer delivery for many years, recently teamed up with UberEats in the US and the service is now available at about 3,500 locations.

One of Olo's investors is Danny Meyer the founder of Shake Shack. "A big chunk of business is shifting to those who are good at this".
