TKOUT.com Announces Launch of Its Publisher Platform to Enable Carryout and Delivery on Popular Food Sites

TKOUT.com Announces a Strategic Agreement With Judy's Book to Coincide With Its Platform Launch

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - Mar 26, 2015) -  TKOUT.com, the world's fastest-growing distribution network for carryout and delivery food, announces the opening of its publisher platform to independent websites and apps. The company's first to market technology -- which aggregates restaurant listings from top online ordering sites to enable the widest selection of ordering options for customers -- is now embeddable into any website. With TKOUT.com, any site with food content can easily satisfy customer demand for carryout and delivery and generate revenue while doing it.

"When you're browsing for food online, you fall into one of two categories: you either want to dine out at the restaurant or eat at home," stated Adam Roussos, CEO of TKOUT.com. "Just as OpenTable has enabled customers to book restaurant reservations on sites with the OpenTable widget, TKOUT.com allows the same website and app operators to serve customers who instead want pickup or delivery food."

TKOUT.com is making its full inventory of over 50,000 restaurants available to all online publishers of restaurant content. Instead of competing with food portals like GrubHub, TKOUT.com brings online ordering directly into the sites customers already use and trust. In a matter of minutes, this platform enables publishers to quickly and easily monetize their web properties and apps with online ordering while providing hungry customers the broadest possible selection.

"We were extremely excited by the pre-launch interest in our program," added Roussos. "We've already begun a number of large trials and have signed up a variety of sites wanting to add TKOUT.com's market-changing technology. We immediately saw the interest in our publisher platform and made the decision to open it to anybody with a website or an app looking to add this feature."

Along with this launch is the announcement of a strategic partnership with Judy's Book, one of the largest social search and online yellow pages directories. With over 1.2 million reviews and over 1 million eateries, Judy's Book provides an opportunity for TKOUT.com to begin to tap into a key strategic channel for bringing carryout and delivery orders to restaurants and eateries.

"TKOUT.com is a great addition to the Judy's Book restaurant pages," stated Ali Alami, General Manager of Judy's Book. "This partnership will allow our users to quickly and easily order pickup and delivery from top eateries. This is very important for our family audience which tends to favor ordering out when balancing the need for great food and convenience against a busy lifestyle."

TKOUT has opened its publisher program to all operators of websites and apps with restaurant content. "It's always been our desire to push the envelope in this space," says Roussos. "TKOUT will continue to find innovative ways to create channels between hungry customers and carryout and delivery food."
