New iPhone & Android App Allows Users to Order Food for Delivery Anywhere, Even to the Beach

Since launching February 1, 2012 URGE® has partnered with over 75 Miami restaurants, allowing customers to order food for delivery thru their iPhone, Droid or the internet at The URGE app is so advanced that customers can have food delivered to their beach chair on the beautiful sands of South Beach using the “Order from the Beach (GPS)” function. Participating restaurants receive the food order along with the customers’ name, cell phone number and address. For beach deliveries where GPS is used the restaurant also receives a map that illustrates the location of the customer on the beach. Restaurants already partnered with URGE include local favorites such as 8oz Burger, LA Café, Philippe Chow, I Love Pizza, Chowdown, The Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Co., Pizza Fusion and Big Pink.

While most URGE orders have been for delivery to an address (hotel rooms, condos, offices), consumers are becoming more comfortable using their phones for sophisticated transactions. As a result URGE anticipates a steady growth of “beach GPS orders”. URGE is on track to have over 200 restaurant partners by the end of 2012 by further saturating South Beach, Downtown Miami and Brickell, while expanding to Coral Gables and North Miami.

The URGE app is a free download and is also free to use. URGE charges participating restaurants a commission for the orders it receives. Download the URGE app from the iStore or Google Play (Google Market) by using the search term “URGE Miami”, or visit the URGE website at
