There are times when you just don’t feel like doing any cooking, so you nominate someone in the household to go out and grab dinner. But, what happens when that person doesn’t want to go out either? A popular chain restaurant with a big presence in Rockford is looking to help you out.

The Oak Brook-based Portillo’s restaurant chain is testing delivery from a Chicago location and in two other markets nationally with the hope of rolling out delivery from all its stores, including in the Chicago suburbs.

Right now, they’re testing the process in two markets, Tampa and Phoenix, where customers are ordering delivery from both the Portillo’s website and through the Portillo’s app. Should the experiment prove to be successful, Portillo’s plans to bring it to our area.

From the Daily Herald:

Crain’s Chicago Business first reported CEO Keith Kinsey talking about the delivery test Thursday in Chicago.¬†“Our food carries very well,” Kinsey said, speaking at a food industry conference hosted by the Association for Corporate Growth’s Chicago chapter. “I see it as a huge opportunity for us.” The company, Crain’s reported Kinsey saying, “is working hard and fast” on bringing the service to all of its stores.¬†This week the chain announced it would be opening a location in Fishers, Indiana, its 52nd restaurant. Its 49th through 51st restaurants will be opening in the next few months in Champaign, Illinois; Woodbury, Minnesota; and Normal, Illinois. It opened store No. 48 last month in Greenfield, Wisconsin, where it exclusively is offering “Badger brats.”
