Uber Chomping Down On Food Delivery With UberEATS

Uber has launched a standalone app on Android and iOS called UberEATS that makes ordering food as easy as requesting a ride. The app is available in select U.S cities, with an app for Melbourne ‘coming soon’.

The UberEats app is now available in Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles and San Francisco. More cities are also on tap in the near future, including Atlanta, Austin, Dallas, New York, Seattle and Washington in the US as well as Melbourne and Paris.

“For the past year and a half we’ve been delivering the best food cities have to offer in minutes. The restaurants behind these favorites are putting the Uber network to work. They’re expanding delivery distances and reaching new customers–pairing great food with the reliable service that people know and expect from Uber,” Chetan Narain, UberEATS product manager said in a statement.

  • Craving something specific? We now offer delivery from the menus of hundreds of local restaurants, seven days a week
  • In a time crunch? You can still get great food in as little as 10 minutes through our Instant Delivery menu
  • Not sure what you want? Browse the most popular dishes from each local restaurant or search by cuisine

“We learned quickly that requesting a ride and ordering a meal are two very different experiences. They each deserve their own home. Now, with the standalone UberEATS app, you can find and order the food you love and follow along on your phone as it comes right to you.”

Jason Droege, Head of UberEVERYTHING said: “Matching you with the perfect meal is a complex endeavor. With the launch of the UberEATS app, we’re providing an experience completely tailored to food to help you get that perfect meal. In the same way Uber makes it easy to get from A to B, UberEATS makes it easy to get food from the best restaurants in your city. Because an Uber driver-partner is never more than a few minutes away, as soon as the food’s ready it’s on its way.”
