Under earnings pressure after a big loss last year, the food distribution company Grubhub struck a deal with Amazon on Wednesday, offering restaurant delivery services without a fee for Amazon Prime members.
Grubhub+ is a membership service, introduced in 2020, that costs $9.99 a month. It cancels out delivery fees on orders of $12 or more before taxes, tips and other fees.
Though the pandemic initially gave a boost to food service businesses like Grubhub, the company suffered losses in 2021 — about $410 million — after pandemic restrictions were lifted throughout the country, driving down demand for restaurant delivery.
