EatStreet, Pingup partner to further simplify online food ordering
BOSTON, Massachusetts ? Two significant players in the online ordering game have come together to make life a little easier for anyone searching for something to eat.
EatStreet and Pingup have partnered to allow customers to order with the click of a button after finding their restaurant of choice on Yahoo Search or YP.
?Since we founded EatStreet our goal has been to make the ordering process as simple and efficient as possible for every diner. Pingup is on a similar mission through its online publishing partnerships, making this a great match as we continue to grow,? said Matt Howard, EatStreet CEO and co-founder.
EatStreet, launched in 2010, is the largest independent online and mobile food ordering service in the U.S., connecting 15,000 restaurants to diners in more than 250 cities through its app and website.

Thanks to Pingup technology, diners can order food directly from local restaurants found through a web search on Yahoo, YP and other major publishers via a simple-to-use ?Order? button ? all without ever leaving the native, publisher-branded search experience.
