Seamless, which runs take-out and food delivery site Seamless.com, combines two industries that power New York City — take-out and technology. And the company has just opened a new headquarters in the Big Apple, overlooking Bryant Park at 1065 Sixth Avenue, according to a statement from Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s office, whose “digital roadmap” for the city, unveiled this May, urges an expansion of New York City’s technology sector.

The food ordering service, which facilitated over $400 million worth of food orders last year, will locate more than half of its total employees in its new 28,000-square-foot home at 40th Street, the statement said.

“If you love food, there’s nowhere better than New York City,” Bloomberg said. “And if you want to start a technology business, it’s the place to be.” He also said that Seamless was one of the city’s most successful digital start-ups, and in a sector that he said is “creating jobs and expanding the city’s economy.”

Seamless began in 1999 as a service that helped corporations order lunch for employees. It has since become a multi-platform network, serving customers through its partnerships with restaurants in New York, London, Washington D.C., Boston, Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

“This announcement is further evidence that innovative technology companies such as Seamless are looking to call New York City home,” said New York City Economic Development Corporation President Seth Pinsky. “The Bloomberg administration remains committed to helping companies such as Seamless to achieve their long-term business objectives, right here in the five boroughs.” — Guelda Voien
