June 24, 2014, Toronto – Just Eat, an online
restaurant and food-ordering service, will partner with Calgary-based
Empire Delivery Services, a business that offers restaurants
use of a delivery fleet.

Founded by Redge and Dacia Filbey-Chong, Empire Delivery Services
is a business-to-business service that offers restaurants the use of
their fleet of delivery vehicles – something that establishments may
otherwise not be able to afford. Empire currently has 50-plus vehicles inits  fleet and services hundreds of restaurants in the Calgary
area. The pairing of Empire's current service with Just Eat Canada help local businesses extend their service
to areas that would have been too costly in the past. 

"We are excited with what the future holds. Our goal is to expand our
company and provide quality service to our customers here in Calgary.
Now that we have partnered with Just Eat, the sky is the limit,"
said Filbey-Chong in a media statement.

"As we strive to continue to offer the best local service in as many
Canadian cities as possible, we're thrilled to announce this partnership with  the largest food delivery service in Calgary, Empire Delivery Services," said Just Eat's Todd Masse in the statement.
"Just Eat is committed to forging partnerships that will help local
economies thrive, as well as bringing to our clients the exceptional
quality and service that we are known for."

Empire will gain access to Just Eat's proprietary geo-tracking technology, resulting
in a more user-friendly experience for consumers. Soon users will be
able to track the whereabouts of their orders in real time, which is a
similar technology to those used by popular mobile apps like Uber and
Hailo. Eat Up and Menu Express recently joined forces with Just Eat in Eastern Canada
and implemented geo-tracking technology for its deliveries.
