business news in context, analysis with attitude

• The Chicago Tribune this morning reports that GrubHub, a Chicago-based startup, is merging with Seamless, a similar company based in New York. The two companies will together create "an online food ordering company with more than $100 million in revenue and a combined network of more than 20,000 restaurants across the U.S. Both GrubHub and Seamless connect diners to restaurants that offer takeout and delivery, taking a cut of transactions processed through their technology platforms.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, and branding decisions reportedly have not yet been made for the company.
