Grubhub, the leading online and mobile food ordering and delivery marketplace, is expanding its services by partnering with the widely used campus app, Transact Campus, which powers payments, credentialing, and other services for college students. The integration enables students to order food from on- and off-campus restaurants via Grubhub within the Transact app and pay with their campus card. By partnering with Transact Campus, Grubhub has the opportunity to serve millions of college students in the United States.
According to Geoff Ellis, Vice President of Strategic Partnerships and Business Development at Grubhub, the integration is “a major win for everyone involved and a big step forward to provide a more holistic dining experience for students.” This partnership will give students easier access to more dining options on and around campus, including Grubhub’s extensive network of more than 365,000 restaurants.
Grubhub has been particularly active on college campuses in recent years, developing a reusable container program with Topanga.io and partnering with several robotics companies to power self-driving delivery on campuses. The integration with Transact builds on the companies’ existing relationship, which allows students to use their campus ID cards to pay at select off-campus businesses.
Transact Campus is widely used by college students in the United States, with 12 million students at more than 1,850 schools using the app, according to the company. The integration between Grubhub and Transact is expected to go live in the next few months.
“Grubhub is thrilled to continue to build on our partnership with Transact and bring our leading delivery capabilities to millions of college students across the country,” said Ellis. “This integration is just the latest example of our commitment to providing innovative, convenient solutions for our diners.”
