Favour restaurant delivery service launching in Toronto

Earlier this summer, Just-Eat Canada swallowed Orderit.ca and in the spring, Uber rolled out their own lunch delivery service in the downtown core. Starting tomorrow, these and the rest of the companies waging battle in Toronto's suddenly saturated online restaurant delivery space will be getting competition from south of the border.

Favour, based out of Austin, Texas (down south it's known as Favor) is promising its army of blue, tuxedo-shirt-clad "runners" will deliver anything you want, as long as you're stationed downtown.

Favour will launch with a delivery area that spans from the DVP to Roncesvalles north to Dupont, though it promises to expand in the near future.

This service seems quite similar to Hurrier in that it offers quick deliveries but it doesn't seem to be actually have business relationships with any restaurants. Instead, it appears to act as a middle person between you and whichever restaurant you're craving.

For its first two months in Toronto, Favour will cost you $2 plus 5 percent of your total food order. Your first delivery, however, is free if you use the promo code Toronto.

Will you try Favour? Let us know in the comments.
