This Major Burger Chain Just Launched Nationwide Delivery
Ordering delivery from Shake Shack is becoming easier and cheaper than ever. The chain has launched its own new delivery service, which means you won't have to use expensive third-party delivery options when you're craving their crispy crinkle-cut fries and soft-bunned burgers.
The company is adding a delivery option within their app, and all nationwide orders will cost a flat fee of 99 cents, while any order over $35 will be free of charge. Orders can also be placed through Shake Shacks's website.
The chain is partnering with UberEats for this service, which means that your order will still be fulfilled by the delivery giant, but the flat fee will make the pricing a lot more reasonable. Ordinarily, Uber Eats delivery fees depend on your distance from the restaurant and time of day, but can run as much as 15% of the order total, according to CNET.
The move comes as a result of Shake Shack's big digital momentum which took shape during the pandemic. According to USA Today, the company's digital sales made up almost 60% of total sales in the fourth quarter of 2020, while the total app and web sales grew 3.5 times year over year. Delivery through the app is the latest addition to Shack Track, the proprietary digital platform which includes other pre-ordering options like getting food via walk-up windows, drive-up windows, curbside pickup, and in-store pickup shelves.
"With an influx of new and returning guests to our digital channels this past year, we've accelerated our digital investment," said Shake Shack's CEO Randy Garutti. "Delivery through the Shack app represents the latest innovation from Shake Shack and is reflective of our increasing focus on convenience across the broader Shake Shack experience."
To celebrate the news, the chain is also offering a free side of fries until the end of the month. All you have to do is spend at least $15 on your next digital order and use the code "GIMME".
