Got the dev bug?

Believe it or not, one of the most well known recipes for startup success is pizza developers. 

Back in February, we opened our API to the public, offering developers the opportunity to leverage our network of more than 10,000 businesses and make real revenue. We created an App Challenge where developers competed to create apps that changed the way people explored their communities and ordered online. Some of the winning apps:

  • FitMunch - An app that uses a mixture of nutritionist knowledge and advanced machine learning algorithms to find delicious healthy meals at local restaurants.
  • Bar Cart – An app that makes it easier for the bartender at home to discover new beverages and easily order the necessary ingredients from liquor stores near them.
  • Basket – An iOS app that makes laundry scheduling and delivery a breeze for customers.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to build awesome apps with our open API, join us for delivery.com Office Hours!

You’ll get to work on your delivery.com app inside delivery.com headquarters, with the delivery.com tech team to answer any questions. Oh, and of course delivery.com ordering to fuel up with food, beers, red bulls and whatever else you can find on our site.

If you’ve already started working with the API or plan to soon, you may have a few questions that weren’t covered in our API documentation or answered in our Developer Forum. If that’s the case, then schedule office hours and come on down! You’ll get to check out the space, talk front-end, back-end, frameworks, endpoints (something, something, buzzword), and hang out with the team. Essentially, a day working with the gang. Did we mention catering?

There’s nothing quite like experiencing a cheeseburger for the first time… and the second and the billionth time.

You can spend an unhealthy amount of dinero trying to avoid this guilty pleasure, but all the salads in the world won’t help you stay away on National Cheeseburger Day. That’s right, September happens to be the home to the yummiest holiday ever. If you’ve missed the memo, don’t worry – we’re fully committed to making sure everyone is celebrating all month long. Cue extremely hi-res photo of a cheeseburger.

Uncle Mario Delivers Grandma To Your Door

Posted by delivery.com on September 09, 2014
Featured Merchants, Guest Blogger, Italian Food Delivery, Pizza Delivery / No Comments

Sporting an entire menu of Italian delicacies, Uncle Mario’s – at its core – is a pizzeria.  And sure, their quintessential New York slice fits the bill, but nothing satisfies an appetite like an Italian Grandma.  If you don’t have one in family, then order one!  Before you start flipping though mail-order catalogs, it might benefit you to know that a “grandma” is also a style of pizza!  Combining old world style cooking with a multitude of Italian cheeses and spices, the “grandma” slice provides a square meal in more ways than one.  Pushed, like grandma used to, into a rectangular cookie sheet then twice baked in a brick oven, the dough provides a crisp and filling canvas for seasonings.  

Uncle Mario's Grandma Pizza

I recommend the Uncle Mario’s “Original” Grandma pie.  Seasoned with garlic, sea salt, basil, olive oil, and grated parmesan cheese, the rich tomato sauce brings out the taste of both the fresh and aged mozzarella cheeses. If that’s not enough, Uncle Mario’s offers additional “enhanced” grandma pies that include Macaroni and Cheese, Chicken Marsala, and a Caprese pizza!  That’s right, you can have a traditional Italian salad followed by chicken in a wine sauce with a side of mac & cheese all layered on top of grandma!  

For topping lovers, try the Hell’s Kitchen which features flavor powerhouses like buffalo chicken and crumbled bleu cheese or the Tony Roni to satisfy your red-meat cravings.  Can’t decide between pizza or spinach and artichoke dip? Get them both with the Creamy Spinach Pizza.  Uncle Mario’s menu runs the gamut from traditional to creative.  Fortunately, most of it is available as a pizza and all of it can be delivered to your door!

Top 5 Seafood Sensations

Posted by delivery.com on August 11, 2014
Uncategorized / No Comments

There are two types of people in this world: those who eat seafood, and those who don’t.

Let’s focus for a moment on those who don’t. We all have that “friend” (not for long); they’ve placed a total embargo on any type of seafood, from fish to shellfish and even seaweed. Quite frankly, they don’t fit into the lobsterdome you’ve been building your entire life. Things have to change.

But the issue has to be handled with finesse. You can’t just bring them to another average seafood joint. First and foremost, environment is key. Giant fish tanks with tonight’s dinner are a no-no. It’s best to stage this intervention in the comfort of the home. Now you’re fishing through your go-to restaurants thinking “Where can I get the freshest, most delicious seafood?” Relax. You don’t need to move to Japan.

Check out our Top 5 Seafood Sensations, we’re sure the embargo will drop post-delivery.

1. A Salt & Battery (NYC) – Looking to impress? A Salt & Battery’s Matt Arnfield was challenged by Bobby Flay in a Fish & Chips throwdown…and won! An order from this critically acclaimed English spot won’t have you fishing for any compliments.

2. Biggie’s Clam Bar (Hoboken) – Seared. Ahi Tuna. Tacos. Widely known to make even the staunchest seafood-hater repent.

3. New England Seafood Company (Chicago) – We need some Adblock on this Chicago hotspot. Yummy Maine Lobster with corn on the cob, potatoes, bib, drawn butter & soup? You’re begging for a risky click. Scroll through their menu past midnight at your own risk.

4. The Daily Catch (Boston) – Craving a taste of Italia? We’ve got the perfect Sicilian-style seafood and pasta joint. The family owned rastaurant serves up recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation. Oh, and their favorite phrase is “MANGIA CALAMARI!”

5. Pescado Mojado (LA) - Brushing up on your mexican palate? Their Shrimp Taco plate will have you speaking seafood in no time.
