Amazon debuted its restaurant delivery service through the Prime Now app in Seattle this September, added support for Portland last month, and has now made it available in Los Angeles. Amazon plans to eventually offer restaurant delivery everywhere Prime Now is available. “Prime Now, which offers free, two-hour delivery in major metros, as well as 1-hour delivery for $7.99, is live today in a number of cities across the U.S.,” reports TechCrunch. The service is ultimately about generating more Amazon Prime memberships. “The $99 per year program offers free, two-day shipping on more than 20 million items, and now makes more than a million of those items available for free, same-day delivery” in major U.S. cities.
