Now you can order lunch via text message in Toronto

Lunch delivery services like Hurrier and online ordering platforms like Just Eat have made countless jam-packed days at the office a little bit easier, but what if you could order your lunch just by firing off a single text? That's idea behind Gob, a new Toronto-based subscription service, which partners with local restaurants to bring subscribers daily lunch options that they can accept with a push of a button.

Here's how it works: Each morning, you'll get a text with the name of that day's restaurant, plus two available lunch options and the price per dish. Answer "A" or "B", and they'll deliver your chosen entree to your workplace by 12:30pm. About 20 restaurants have already signed on to supply lunches, including Banh Mi Boys, IQ Food Co., Ravi Soups, Sukhothai and Burger's Priest, and meals start at just $7, including taxes and delivery.
