Seems like Amazon has their hand in a little bit of everything these days. But, it looks like they can’t be good at everything. They have announced that they will be shutting down their Amazon Restaurants delivery services effective June 24th. Looks like competitors like my favorites, Doordash and UberEats will continue to dominate in this space. I’m a big fan of these services as they save me a lot of time!

Amazon Shutting Down Restaurant Delivery Service

As reported by CNN,

Amazon is a behemoth, but it can’t disrupt everything. The company is getting out of the restaurant food delivery business.

Amazon Restaurants is shutting down in the United States and will cease operations on June 24, Amazon announced Tuesday. The service launched in 2015 in Seattle before expanding to nearly two dozen cities and delivered food to Prime members.
“Many of the small number of employees affected by this decision have already found new roles at Amazon, and others will be provided personalized support to find a new role within, or outside of, the company,” the company said in a statement.
With the closure in the US, Amazon Restaurants is officially dead. It failed to gain traction against its global competitors, including DoorDash, Grubhub (GRUB), Uber (UBER) Eats, Postmates and Just Eat. (JSTTY)
