UberEATS Brings Food to Your Doorstep!
The cab-hailing company Uber recently announced that it would be launching its UberEATS app in India soon.
Similar to Swiggy, the food delivery service for restaurants first started in 2014 in the city of Los Angeles and has slowly been making its way into cities across the world.
As of now, UberEATS is available in 58 cities. Just before the app launches in India, the company opened up the discussion floor to delivery and restaurant partners for feedback. The feedback that Uber is seeking from consumers is about what eateries are their favourite so that the company can hopefully bring them on-board before the launch.
As Uber is most popular for its cab-hailing app, the company says that its venture into the Indian market with UberEATS will be a major move for its food delivery service. The India launch follows the apps’ launch in Hong Kong, Bangkok, Taipei, Tokyo and Singapore.
Talking about the impending launch, the Asia Pacific head of UberEATS, Allen Penn said, “I am incredibly excited about bringing UberEATS to India. This is a significant investment, it spans multiple cities and regions, and it has the potential to change the food industry – with the push of a button – in one of the most vibrant food cultures in the world.”
While the company has not yet detailed which Indian cities the app will be functional in, hopeful users can be assured that Uber will consider metro cities like Chennai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Delhi NCR, Mumbai and Kolkata. This is according to a Google Sheet that was circulated by the company to its consumers.
Additionally, UberEATS is also sending invitations to restaurants in a bid to demonstrate their interest in creating a partnership on the page.
In pre-existing markets like Los Angeles, UberEATS allows customers to select from entire menus of restaurants. Some of the newer markets also offer customers instant delivery menus which are lists of curated items that can be ordered quickly from multiple eateries. This food is then delivered in an Uber car or through the company’s delivery personnel.
So if you are hungry, get comfortable at home and pick up your smartphone to order off UberEATS!
