NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Apr 12, 2012) - Seamless (www.seamless.com), the leading mobile and online service for ordering delivery and takeout food from more than 9,500 top restaurants in the US and UK, today announced its expansion in the second largest city in America, Los Angeles. Hungry people will now be able to order from Seamless' more than 800 LA-based restaurant partners directly from the Seamless website and mobile applications -- including iPhone, iPad, Android and BlackBerry.
"Los Angeles' diverse culinary culture and on-the-go lifestyle make Seamless perfect for its four million residents," said Jonathan Zabusky, Seamless CEO. "We know what LA likes to eat, and we offer the best source to get it, anytime, anywhere. Seamless will become your best friend for discovering new restaurants, your trusted source for providing the most comprehensive menu selections, and the easiest way to avoid traffic and find the best food, whenever hunger strikes."
Founded in New York in 1999, Seamless expanded service into Los Angeles in 2005, helping hundreds of corporate clients make their employees happy by streamlining orders from local restaurants for individual, group or catered meals. Due to its established footprint in the market, Seamless already has a wealth of data on Angelenos' dining habits, including:
- The surprising: Salads are the tenth most popular cuisine, behind more indulgent choices like Thai, Chinese and Italian
- The ironic: Koreatown prefers Indian food
- The predictable: Santa Monica orders the most health food
- The requests: "Hold the bun" is the most common special request
- The helpful: 88% of LA residents commute to work or school by car, but hold off ordering till they are out of rush hour, with mobile orders spiking between 7:00 and 8:00 p.m.

In 2011, the company processed more than $400 million in sales, facilitated well over 1 million mobile transactions and grew to 250 employees.
