Some day soon, you might be able to give Alexa your Chipotle order.

On Friday, Amazon and an online-delivery platform called Olo announced a partnership.

Olo, which provides digital order and pay technology to restaurants, has over 200 brands on its client roster, including many popular fast-casual eateries like Chipotle, Five Guys, Coldstone Creamery, Which Wich, Noodles and Company, Jamba Juice, Shake Shack, and more.

The partnership means most restaurants using the Olo system will soon be available for delivery on Amazon Restaurants – Amazon Prime's one-hour restaurant delivery service.

“We are excited to leverage Olo’s digital ordering technology and continue rapidly growing our network of restaurants to give Amazon Prime members more options for fast delivery from their favorite brands,” Gus Lopez, general manager of Amazon Restaurants, said in a statement

“This integration will enable Amazon Restaurants to onboard new restaurants with ease, as well as quickly add more new choices and delivery options for customers,” Lopez added.

So far, only one Olo customer – Buca di Beppo – has publicly said it will use Amazon Restaurants, The Verge says

But now the door is open for hundreds of others to follow.

It's a big deal because for the most part, the restaurants on Olo's client list are the kinds of places you can usually only order from on Postmates: fast-casual restaurants that don't offer their own delivery.

Amazon Restaurants launched in Minneapolis last year and is available in several neighborhoods, including Calhoun-Isles, Uptown, Linden Hills and Dinkytown. 

To find out if it's available for you, log in to Prime Now and enter your zip code. If the service is available, you'll see "restaurants" on the home page.
