just added another restaurant delivery service to its dinner plate.

On Monday, the company, which has built out an online and mobile food ordering and delivery empire, announced the acquisition of Portland, Ore.-based Delivered Dish. This is far from the first acquisition for GrubHub, a company that’s previously bought out companies like DiningIn and Restaurants on the Run to cement its foothold in the vertical.

Delivered Dish, which helps restaurants deliver meals to consumers, maintains a stronghold in the Pacific Northwest and Southwest where it’s expanded to seven markets, including cities like Portland, Denver, Las Vegas, San Diego, and El Paso. According to the Chicago Tribune, “neither Delivered Dish's team nor its operations will change immediately.”

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

According to a press release, GrubHub’s delivery service is available today in 30 markets and expects to tack on another 10 by year’s end.

"Delivered Dish is pleased to join the national leader in online food ordering," said Greg Trombley, Delivered Dish CEO in the statement. "We look forward to contributing to GrubHub's strong momentum in the food delivery space."

GrubHub’s food delivery initiatives ramped up in 2014 to provide an easy alternative for restaurants that don’t operate their own delivery services. According to the statement, this acquisition will help streamline those efforts.
