Groupon will be taking their new delivery service to other metro areas across the nation.

Groupon is best known for restaurant and vacation deals, but now they’re offering a delivery service called Groupon To Go.

Earlier this month, Groupon acquired OrderUp — an online and mobile food-ordering service. Groupon To Go will start in Chicago and expand to other cities over the rest of the year, including Austin and Boston.

Groupon To Go will deliver food from national chains, such as Quiznos, Popeyes, Subway, and Papa John’s. Customers who use the delivery service will save 10 percent or more in the form of instant cashback on every order.

Sean Smyth, vice president and general manager of Groupon To Go, said in a statement, “Delivery and takeout is a natural extension of our local deals marketplace, adding hundreds of the best restaurants to Groupon –– including many that haven't offered online ordering until now.”

Other features of Groupon To Go include real-time order tracking, group ordering, and scheduled delivery and takeout for another date and time.
