“Partnering with Amazon Restaurants makes us even more convenient for our customers,” said Jean Birch, chairman of the board and interim chief executive officer of Papa Murphy’s. “Our product is uniquely suited for delivery because, unlike a cooked pizza, it arrives fresh for customers to bake easily at home when it fits their schedule.”
Customers in Portland and Seattle will be able to use the Amazon or Prime Now mobile apps, or visit www.amazon.com/restaurants, to place orders. They then will be able to track the status of their delivery and watch as their delivery driver travels from the restaurant to the delivery address in real time.
“Our goal is to allow people to enjoy a high-quality meal hot out of their oven without having to leave their house,” Ms. Birch said. “We’re here to make life a little simpler — with really delicious food.”
Gus Lopez, general manager of Amazon Restaurants, said adding Papa Murphy’s gives the company another solid restaurant option for its Prime members in Portland and Seattle.“The service offers Papa Murphy’s the chance to leverage Amazon’s technological expertise in last-mile delivery to get food delivered to customers’ doorsteps in one hour or less,” Mr. Lopez said.
