Facebook on Friday has rolled out a new service through which its US users can order food for takeaway or delivery directly through its app or website.

Facebook said it has partnered with restaurants including Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc, Jack in the Box Inc, Five Guys and Papa John’s International Inc.

The social media giant said in a blog post that it has also signed on food ordering services such as EatStreet, Delivery.com, DoorDash and Olo.

To order their meal, users will have to go to the “order food” section on Facebook’s “explore” menu, which will show them a list of participating restaurants in the vicinity through which they can place their order.

Last year, the company has said its US users would be able to order food through a restaurants’ Facebook page.

Facebook’s shares were up nearly 1% in early trading on Friday. Shares of food order and delivery service GrubHub Inc dropped nearly 3%.
