EatStreet adds delivery services amid acquisiton

EatStreet continues their rapid growth as they recently acquired assets from a Philadelphia-based startup in order to aid expansion to cities they operate in across the U.S.

The startup, called Zoomer, has agreed to sell EatStreet restaurant contracts for an undisclosed amount of money. In addition, many employees from Zoomer will join the EatStreet team. The strategic purchase will allow EatStreet to have more control of the food delivery process from start to finish, and the acquisition will help them better manage deliveries for high volume restaurants.

EatStreet now employs over 150 people in the Madison area and has 15,000 plus restaurants available on its service.
