Square's Pickup app streamlines ordering take-out in San Francisco

If you thought ordering a new shirt from Uniqlo and grabbing it from the store 20 minutes later was rad, Square has something similar cooked up for your favorite restaurants. The outfit is demoing a new Android and iOS application called Pickup at a handful of San Francisco eateries, according to Priceonomics. With the app, Square is streamlining the food ordering process to a few taps on your smartphone: you choose an item from the menu, pay for it and then, well, pick it up. Given Square's popularity with small businesses (especially with competition from GoPago, GrubHub and OrderAhead), hopefully it isn't long before the outfit releases Pickup outside of NorCal.
