We want Foodspotting to become the shortest path between you and good food.
Foodspotting's superpower is making people hungry: If you're not launching Foodspotting because you're hungry, you will be soon after! Almost every single day, we see tweets like these...

With our New Place Page in Foodspotting 3.5, we introduced some new ways to satisfy those cravings and close the hunger-satisfaction loop: You could learn more via Yelp, check out the menu via SinglePlatform and make reservations using OpenTable.
Today, we're taking one more step toward closing that loop: Online Ordering Integration via GrubHub
When you're browsing Foodspotting, have you ever wished for a "Buy it now!" button? Well, our partnership with GrubHub is the first step in that direction. When you see some amazing dish on Foodspotting, you can tap through to the Place page and see if it's available for pick up or delivery on GrubHub. Tapping "Order Now via GrubHub" will take you to GrubHub's new mobile-friendly website where you can easily complete your order, no login required.
This is just the beginning - we're working on ways to make it easier to find food you can order in or pick up, dish-specific ordering and more. But with over 15,000 restaurants in cities large and small across the US, we hope you'll find plenty of great dishes you can order right from your phone!
As an added bonus, GrubHub will send a $10 credit to the first 25 people who place orders through Foodspotting, towards their NEXT order, just to celebrate this partnership. Go get 'em!
And if you need some inspiration, here are a few of our favorite orderable dishes in our hometown, San Francisco, plus a few of GrubHub's favorites in New York.
