After announcing earlier this year that it would begin restaurant delivery in Seattle, Portland, and Los Angeles, Amazon has finally expanded to the East Coast and brought the new service to Baltimore.
The Baltimore service launched on Thursday and is available in 10 zip codes in the downtown area. The company boasts an extensive list of local favorites, but is currently seeking more restaurants to expand its selection in the near future. Gus Lopez, Amazon Restaurants’ general manager, explained the company’s decision in a press release: “Baltimore’s vibrant mix of neighborhoods has created an equally vibrant food scene.”
Baltimore’s Prime Now customers can download the mobile app to see which restaurants are participating in the delivery service and take a look at their menus. They can place an order on the app and track the delivery status as well as the driver’s location.
Amazon promises delivery in one hour or less, and is offering free delivery for a limited time.
