Does Olive Garden Deliver Through Amazon Prime?

Oh My Breadsticks! Olive Garden May Soon Deliver Through Amazon Prime

Olive Garden might soon be delivering its comforting dishes through Amazon's affordable and fast Prime membership. On June 27, Olive Garden's parent company announced that it's embarked on a new partnership with Amazon that may entail a delivery feature.

Darden Restaurants is a multibrand company that oversees various widely recognized restaurants such as LongHorn Steakhouse, Bahama Breeze, and Capital Grille โ€” in addition to Olive Garden. During a recent conference call, CEO Gene Lee said the company is exploring the partnership while also still maintaining its brand.

"We constantly sit around here thinking about how does Amazon have an impact on our business," he said. Though we can envision the delivery option being hugely successful, Lee said that millennials are still enjoying dining out. "I know you don't think millennials want to go to restaurants, but 30 percent of our guests are millennials versus 24 percent of the population. So we over indexed."

That being said, Darden Restaurants will continue to explore the possibility with Amazon. "The only way Amazon is in our world right now is through Amazon Prime delivery. We have a test going on with them. We'll continue to partner with them and see if we can make that work," he said.

In the meantime, the company is eyeing a third-party delivery service with various vendors โ€” although Amazon likely has the most sway, especially since its recent acquisition of Whole Foods.
