GrubHub-Icon

GrubHub and Seamless are merging into a single company intent on bringing more customers to more restaurants, or more food to more customers, depending on your perspective. For those who have never heard of either company, they both allow mobile shoppers to avoid holding their phones to their ears to order takeout by using mobile apps on their phones instead. It's a popular concept, as evidenced by the roughly $875 million in gross food sales the two companies facilitated last year.

The two competitors currently share the same goal of connecting hungry people with delicious meals, but they maintain separate networks of retailers across the country. Once the merger is complete, it's safe to assume GrubHub users will gain access to restaurants previously only available to those who had chosen Seamless as their takeout service of choice. Besides that, no details will be released until after the deal closes and the new company has time to draft a new game plan for the future. Considering how both services look and feel largely the same, it shouldn't take too long.

Born and raised in the rural South, Bertel knows what it's like to live without 4G LTE - or 3G, for that matter. He now lives in the City of Bridges, adjusting to the presence of actual snow. His phone of choice is the HTC One.

    As a San Francisco resident, this pleases me. I've only just installed Seamless but found their selection mediocre, but now I'm excited to have the combined power of both apps in one.

      Meanwhile, neither app seems to have a presence in Pittsburgh. I'm still debating if that's a good or bad thing for me.

        As a frequent user of GrubHub in Chicago, definitely a bad thing!

    Neither has anything to offer in my area.
