Long John Silver’s dishes now available for home delivery
Consumers across the U.S. can soon have their favorite Long John Silver’s (LJS) dishes delivered directly to their doorsteps courtesy of a new partnership between the popular quick-service chain and on-demand delivery company Postmates.
Announced on 18 September, the partnership will see to it that eligible Postmates subscribers who are close in proximity to one of the nearly 800 LJS restaurants located in the U.S. can enjoy the franchise’s seafood menu items from the comfort of their own homes.
Dan Mosher, Postmates’ SVP and merchant lead, said LJS fit the bill as an ideal partner for the courier enterprise, which operates in more than 3,500 cities and delivers from more than 500,000 restaurants, supermarkets, and convenience stores.
"Postmates is always looking to partner with restaurants that have a rich history and we couldn't be more thrilled to officially partner with Long John Silver's,'' Mosher said in a press release. "As a leader in on-demand delivery, we are proud to connect our customers with Long John Silver's restaurants nationwide."
"We are committed to making the unique seafood experience from the coasts accessible to everyone, whether they're coming aboard to dine in one of our restaurants or enjoying our food at home," added Christopher Caudill, vice president of marketing at LJS. "Partnering with Postmates helps us bring menu items like our new grilled salmon and grilled shrimp tacos and rice bowls, our classic wild-caught Alaska Pollock and tender chicken planks, and other Long John Silver's favorites like hand-battered shrimp and crispy Atlantic surf clams to customers everywhere."
To get LJS delivered, consumers must visit Postmates.com or download Postmates on their iOS or Android device. There are zero delivery fees for Postmates Unlimited subscribers, the company’s membership service, which costs USD 9.99 (EUR 9.03) per month. Postmates, which was launched in 2011, delivers food from 75 of the top 100 restaurants in the U.S., according to the press release issued by the firm and LJS.
