​​AUSTIN - Retail-giant ​Amazon has opened their delivery food service in Austin to Prime Now customers.

Austin is only the fifth city in the United States where Amazon is deploying its rapid shipping model in partnership with local restaurants.

More than 60 local vendors have signed on with Amazon to have their food delivered within one hour to 15 Austin area ZIP Codes.

Neighborhoods in the initial launch include Downtown Austin, South Congress, East Austin, The Domain, Mueller and around the University of Texas campus.
