Services will be available in markets where Postmates has an existing presence, Chipotle announced during its latest earnings call. That includes New York City, Chicago, Miami, Los Angeles, Dallas, Seattle, Washington, D.C., and other cities.
Other third-party operators have offered Chipotle delivery in the past, but Postmates is the company’s first official delivery partner.
Chipotle is in the process of making improvements to its mobile ordering options, which will include an app for Apple Watch that will debut on Friday, April 24. Other options for mobile payment within restaurants, including Apple Pay and Google Wallet, are also being tested.
As the company expands its payment options, Chipotle is also expected to expand its catering services, which are already seeing strong growth. Catering accounted for 6.6. percent of sales during the first financial quarter.
