LOS ANGELES, CA — Amid the unfolding coronavirus crisis in the United States, nearly all Americans are spending much or most time at home, including in Los Angeles.
For many, that means a higher frequency of ordering takeout from restaurants and a reliance on food delivery services for groceries.
Taking that into consideration, Local Records Office has put together a list of national chain restaurants currently offering free delivery, along with a collection of reliable food delivery services.
Burger King: Burger King is offering free delivery on any order over $10. The deal is available through the Burger King website, Postmates, and DoorDash.
Chipotle: Chipotle was the first national chain restaurant to offer free delivery in the United States, and the offer remains in place for the month of April when you place an order of $10 or more.
Del Taco: Del Taco is teaming up with Postmates, DoorDash, and Grubhub to offer free delivery deals. The Mexican restaurant chain is offering free delivery through Postmates with no minimum purchase required; free delivery on DoorDash with your first order; and free delivery through Grubhub on any purchase of $15 or more.
Denny’s: Denny’s is waiving all delivery fees through April 12. Make sure to place your order on Dennys.com for your breakfast craving of choice.
KFC: The popular chicken chain is offering free delivery on purchases through April 26. There’s no minimum purchase to receive the deal, and you can make the order through KFC.com, Grubhub, and Seamless.
Little Caesars: The pizza chain has extended its free-delivery option until April 12.
Popeyes: The chicken restaurant chain is offering free delivery for an unspecified time.
Food Delivery Services
Amazon Fresh: The Amazon food delivery service allows you to find deals on produce, meat, seafood, frozen foods, and packaged foods. However, to shop and get free delivery, you must be a Prime member. Amazon has also announced that certain inventory items and delivery may be temporarily unavailable due to high demand.
BlueApron: The food delivery service will ship you all the ingredients needed to make a specific recipe, and it is still delivering. If you need inspiration, you can find weekly menu options on the BlueApron website.
Chewy: We didn’t forget about the pets. Chewy allows you to browse a wide variety of pet food for different animals and get it shipped to your door. Due to increased demand, delivery times are running longer than usual, but inventory is still available.
DoorDash: The prepared-food delivery service has waived all delivery fees and announced it has set the default delivery option to “no contact” in an effort to minimize contact between delivery workers and customers.
Grubhub: The online food delivery service offers delivery for restaurants across the country.
