TORONTO, April 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- International on-demand food delivery service, foodora is announcing its latest Canadian market expansion to Ottawa, introducing its signature pink, and opening a world of convenience and flavours to busy, on-the-go Ottawans. As of April 24, foodora's rider fleet will bring meals by bike or car from more than 50 restaurant partners, including Shawarma King, Burgers n’ Fries Forever and Smoke’s Poutinerie, directly to customers’ homes and offices – or even a local park.

“As foodora continues to evolve and innovate, we’re looking to bring our memorable customer experience – both on and off the app – to more Canadian cities,” says David Albert, managing director, foodora Canada. “Our latest market expansion to Ottawa means we can connect more Canadians with a variety of new and loved restaurants and cuisines – plus, we have some big things in store for Ottawa.”

In time for Earth Day 2019, foodora renewed its commitment to reduce plastic waste by launching a single-use plastic cutlery opt-out feature, where customers are prompted at checkout to select if they require plastic cutlery with their food delivery. This opt-out initiative rolled out Canada-wide in early April 2019 and is part of foodora’s broader sustainability efforts toward lessening its environmental impact.

Through foodora’s website, iOS and Android apps, foodora customers can place orders to restaurants from around the city and enjoy a flat delivery fee of $1.49. foodora customers can use the “refer-a-friend” feature within the app to send their friends $10 off their first foodora order; in turn, they’ll receive a $10 credit each time a new friend places an order.

Businesses can opt in to foodora’s corporate food delivery feature, where you can input expense codes and invite employees, set budgets and keep track of orders placed with detailed reports. This convenient feature allows employees to create group orders and set up pre-orders for meetings or events.

foodora is always looking to grow its rider team of bikes, scooters and cars. Shifts are flexible with an earning potential of up to $25 per hour, and provide access to additional perks, including exclusive discounts, medical insurance and team events. Submit your application at www.foodora.ca.
