Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey’s mobile payment startup, Square, earlier this year purchased Caviar, a food delivery service, for a reported $90 million. On Thursday, the company released the official Caviar iOS app in the App Store.
Featuring crisp dish photos, real-time tracking of your order from counter-to-door and more, Caviar makes it easy to order food from your favorite local restaurants right to your door, from the palm of your hand using your iPhone or iPad.
The app lets you customize your meal to some extent and then order from well-established restaurants in supported areas, including some of the highest-rated eateries.
Because Caviar has its own delivery network, you can order from restaurants that don’t deliver. It’s also possible to merge multiple orders made on other devices into a single mega-order, which will be delivered to one location.
And when your order is on its way, Caviar allows you to track the delivery right within the app and follow the courier’s route, from the counter right up to your door.
Epicurious types who plan on using Caviar to order themselves a nice meal should be aware that they currently deliver foods through Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, the San Francisco bay area, Seattle and Washington DC.
Square has been working hard on expanding the service to new areas following the acquisitions so you can expect more cities to be added over time.
