Grubhub has built its business on the backs of mom-and-pop restaurants. Now the company wants to expand its network to include national restaurant chains.
The Chicago-based company has already announced major partnerships with Buca di Beppo, Fatburger, Veggie Grill and Panda Express, and today it is adding California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) to the list. Grubhub said it will now process takeout and delivery orders for 117 CPK locations and provide its turnkey delivery services for 81 of those restaurants. In its Q4 2015 earnings call in February, the company discussed its push into national chains and noted that by including them it increased its total available market (TAM) from $75 billion to over $200 billion.
