Lyft is a major competitor of Uber when it comes to the car-sharing network model that has been growing strongly in the US transportation sector since the late early years of the last century (through Start-up Talky). However, Lyft has yet to take its hat off to the food delivery service. Yesterday, the company made its move. On Tuesday, December 14, Lyft partnered with a company called “Olo,” to help restaurants streamline their online ordering system with services like DoorDash, GrubHub, and UberEats (via UberEats). via Food & Wine).
While Lyft will not have its own ordering platform, which Justin Paris, head of Lyft Delivery, cites as evidence that Lyft does not directly compete with UberEats (via Food & Wine), Lyft drivers will have one. the opportunity to take on restaurant deliveries through Olo’s platform (aptly named “Dispatch”). “The addition of Lyft to the Dispatch network not only expands distribution for our brands, but also fosters competitive pricing for the benefit of customers and brands,” said Shalin Sheth, VP and GM of Dispatch for Olo, said in a press release (via Business line). At the same time, this structure protects the relationship customers have with the restaurants they prefer to order from, by letting them do so directly – even though Lyft is the delivery service of their choice.
