Being one of the founders of GrubHub.com, my friends and even random people I meet when I’m out, are not shy to share with me their opinions on how to make the Web site more awesome. I’m honored and humbled that folks want to take the time to share their thoughts. And while some ideas may require legal advice from our attorney — we won’t be adding medical marijuana for delivery anytime soon — I truly appreciate all the feedback.
In all seriousness, customer input plays a huge role in how we continue to improve our site. The most requested feature has been item search. People want to find all the restaurants that deliver to them, but they also want to find all the places that might serve tofu burgers or Vietnamese spring rolls. Well, I’m happy to announce today, item search is LIVE and raring to go!
Given the variety of options from the 11,000 restaurants on GrubHub.com, adding this awesome new feature was no small task and everyone here is thrilled that it’s finally live.
Our goal here wasn’t to add shiny bells and whistles to our Web site just for the heck of it. We really want this thing to work. We want to make it easier for you to get exactly what you want, delivered right to your door. We’ll be tinkering with it over the next month to make sure you’ll get exactly what you’re looking for— whether it’s tofu, fried chicken, or a fudge brownie.
And don’t worry; this is just the first of a whole pile of cool things we have planned for GrubHub.com in 2010. Stay tuned for more developments over the next few months and feel free to let us know what you think of the new item search.
