Extremely Popular Toronto Food Service Launches in Mississauga
If you want restaurant food delivered to your door, you can get it—but only from a small pool of companies.
Fortunately for Mississauga foodies, that pool just got a little bigger.
foodora, one of the top on-demand food delivery services in Canada (and one with the cutest name ever), recently announced that it has expanded to three new Canadian cities: Burnaby, Laval, and, last but not least, Mississauga.
Starting now, foodora’s fleet of couriers will bring dishes from over 150 local restaurant partners directly to users’ doors. foodora also delivers to offices and outdoor areas (so if you're having a BBQ, you might not have to make all your own food).
To celebrate the launches, delivery on all foodora orders will be free for the first month in each city.
“Providing convenient and fresh delivery to Canadians has always been our top priority, and we are excited to continue expanding foodora’s services to Burnaby, Laval and Mississauga,” said David Albert, managing director, foodora Canada.
“With more restaurants being added to the platform, we look forward to the coming weeks where users in these communities can experience easy access to popular food spots and delivery that the larger neighbouring cities already have.”
To kick off the company’s expansion, foodora has partnered with one restaurant in each city to offer a special dish made to represent the municipality’s culinary landscape.
In Mississauga, users can order the “Special Jerk Chicken Fried Rice” from Charlie’s Caribbean Cuisine.
The dish includes Caribbean fusion fried rice mixed with vegetables and bits of jerk chicken throughout and three pieces of jerk chicken leg and thigh on top. The resto is offering the menu item for $7.99.
The brand says items can be ordered through the app or website by adding the dish to any foodora order at the participating restaurant. The dishes will be available for one week, following the launch.
Prior to the expansion, foodora was only available in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Quebec City, Edmonton, and Alberta.
So, what other restos can locals order food from right now?
- On the Bun
- WoW Korean
- Basil Box
- Union Burger
In Mississauga, the delivery zone includes the area between the 407, Erin Mills Parkway, Lake Ontario and Etobicoke.
Through the foodora website or the new iOS and Android apps, customers can enter their area and view a curated list of restaurants serving their neighbourhood. Diners can place an order and pay online through foodora’s secure platform.
Orders are typically delivered within 30 minutes.
Diners can also choose to pick their order up.
Happy dining, everyone!
