Trending: A guide for startups to prepare for the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)

chipotle12If you’re craving Chipotle and want to avoid the giant lines — or are just feeling particularly lazy — there’s good news for you.

postmates121Chipotle is now delivering, thanks to a partnership with San Francisco-based startup Postmates. The New York Times notes that Chipotle will offer delivery in each of the 67 markets where Postmates is now operating.

Postmates was already delivering Chipotle items to its users, but now the companies are officially working together. Re/code reported that Postmates delivered $500,000 worth of Chipotle orders in Q1 of 2015 before the partnership was announced this week.

Burrito buyers will need to shell out an extra $5-to-$8 for delivery, depending on distance. Some think that’s a bit too much to pay for the added convenience.

To order, go to Postmates.com, enter your address, search for “Chipotle,” add items to your cart, create an account, and you’ll have food at your door in less than an hour. You can also order with Postmates mobile apps for iOS and Android.

Chipotle already offers a way to order-ahead on its site and mobile app for an in-store pickup. The company also put out an Apple Watch app today.

Postmates, which has raised $58 million since 2012 and also recently inked a delivery deal with Starbucks, is among a huge crop of young startups all vying to deliver food and other products to your doorstep. The food-related companies include CaviarMunchery, SpoonRocketPeachdLishFoodPandaPlatedBitesquad, and more. They compete with more veteran players in the industry like Yelp-owned Eat24, GrubHub, and GrubHub-owned Seamless.

Postmates also launched in Portland last month.
