LOS ANGELES — Cartwheel, the innovative on-demand delivery management platform, proudly announces its partnership with the Toast Partner Ecosystem. This strategic integration marks a pivotal step forward for restaurants utilizing Cartwheel’s cutting-edge Hybrid Delivery technology and third-party fleet-management capabilities, as it empowers them to seamlessly oversee these operations directly from their Toast point-of-sale (POS) system.

Cartwheel’s Hybrid Delivery solution revolutionizes restaurant delivery operations by optimizing both in-house and outsourced deliveries. By seamlessly integrating with multiple prominent third-party fleets on a national scale, Cartwheel introduces unparalleled flexibility and choice for streamlined order fulfillment.

Toast stands as a cloud-based, comprehensive digital platform meticulously designed to cater to the diverse needs of the restaurant industry. Through its carefully curated Toast Partner Ecosystem, featuring over 200 esteemed partners, Toast delivers specialized technologies and services that elevate sales, enhance guest engagement, and ensure employee satisfaction for restaurant operators.

“We are delighted to welcome Cartwheel to the Toast Partner Ecosystem and extend our customers the advantages of Hybrid Delivery and fleet management capabilities seamlessly integrated with the Toast POS,” expressed Keith Corbin, Senior Director of Business Development at Toast. “This collaboration empowers restaurants to not only enhance their in-house delivery operations but also tap into a multitude of third-party fleets to optimize the overall delivery experience.”

The partnership has proven instrumental for Kevin Polk, owner of Jackrabbit Deliveries, a leading local delivery service company. Polk praised the seamless order flow between Toast and Cartwheel for his restaurants, Cool Moose Cafe and Meat Boss. He highlighted the accessibility to national third-party networks while maintaining the flexibility to prioritize local delivery service providers (DSPs) like Jackrabbit for enhanced flexibility.

Michael DeNunzio of Fine Folk Pizza, another satisfied joint customer, attested to the value of Cartwheel’s driver tracking and delivery management tools, which have significantly enhanced their customer experience for both in-house and third-party deliveries.

Through Cartwheel’s dynamic platform, restaurants gain access to an extensive network of delivery drivers and local independent delivery service providers (DSPs), ensuring a frictionless transition from order placement to successful delivery. Cartwheel’s Hybrid Delivery technology empowers Toast customers to optimize both in-house and outsourced delivery operations directly from their existing Toast POS. The platform further offers a customizable and branded order tracking interface, amplifying brand awareness and fostering lasting customer loyalty.

Alex Vasilkin, Co-founder and CEO of Cartwheel, emphasized the significance of Toast’s open and partner-driven approach, enabling diverse restaurants to harness Cartwheel’s state-of-the-art technology for delivery optimization. Vasilkin remarked, “Especially in categories like pizza, where efficiency is paramount, we are proud to equip Toast customers with the tools to excel in delivery operations.”


Cartwheel serves as the leading on-demand delivery management platform catering to enterprise-level restaurant brands and beyond.

Founded in 2012 as a delivery restaurant, Cartwheel swiftly ascended to become a prominent delivery service in Los Angeles. Recognizing a gap in the market, the founders transitioned their focus exclusively to delivery outsourcing. The absence of an all-encompassing software solution led them to develop Cartwheel’s innovative platform.

Offering turnkey solutions for in-house delivery operations, Cartwheel boasts a user-friendly driver app, advanced dispatch tools for managers, and seamless customer interaction capabilities.

Notably, Cartwheel has facilitated deliveries for esteemed brands such as Portillo’s (also a Cartwheel investor), P.F. Chang’s, Potbelly, among others. The company has also forged a partnership with Olo, expanding its reach to a nationwide network of restaurants.

Headquartered in Los Angeles, Cartwheel continues to redefine delivery management. For more details, please visit
