VANCOUVER, Wash., April 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Papa Murphy's Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:FRSH) today announced an addition to their service-delivery from Amazon Restaurants in seven company-owned stores in the Portland and Seattle areas.
"Partnering with Amazon Restaurants makes us even more convenient for our customers," said Jean Birch, Chair of the Board and Interim Chief Executive Officer of Papa Murphy's Holdings, Inc. "Our product is uniquely suited for delivery because, unlike a cooked pizza, it arrives fresh for customers to bake easily at home when it fits their schedule."
"We are excited to add a beloved brand to our growing selection of restaurant options for Prime members in Portland and Seattle," said Gus Lopez, general manager of Amazon Restaurants. "The service offers Papa Murphy's the chance to
leverage Amazon's technological expertise in last-mile delivery to get food delivered to customers' doorsteps in one hour or less."
Using the Amazon or Prime Now mobile apps, or by visiting www.amazon.com/restaurants, Prime members in Portland and Seattle can place orders at Amazon Restaurants from participating Papa Murphy's locations, track the status of their delivery, and watch as their delivery driver travels from the restaurant to the delivery address in real time. Customers can log in here and enter their ZIP code to see if Papa Murphy's is available in their area.
"Our goal is to allow people to enjoy a high-quality meal hot out of their oven without having to leave their house," Birch added. "We're here to make life a little simpler—with really delicious food."
