SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 21, 2016--, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) today announced that Prime Now customers in Chicago can now enjoy delivery from local restaurants including Balena, Big Bowl, Big Star, Chicago q, M Burger, RPM Italian, Wildfire, and many more. Prime Now already services the Chicago area with one and two hour delivery from Amazon and grocery delivery from Plum Market, My Fit Foods and Sprinkles Cupcakes.

Using the Prime Now mobile app, Chicago customers can view participating restaurants, browse menus, place orders, track the status of their delivery, and watch as the driver travels from the restaurant to the delivery address in real time.

Prime members can download the Prime Now app or visit to enter their zip code and see if Prime Now is available in their area. In zip codes where restaurant delivery is available, customers will see Restaurants on the home page.
