Food delivery applications and websites like Swiggy, Foodpanda, Scootsy and Zomato are currently on a high roll and taxi service giant- Uber has now stepped into the game as well.
UberEATS was started in 2014 as a small delivery pilot in Los Angeles and launched as a separate application in Toronto in December 2015. It is now present in 26 countries and in 78 cities around the globe, Mumbai being the latest one.
Commenting on the launch, Bhavik Rathod, Head of UberEATS India, said,“Mumbai is home to a booming food industry with a vibrant food culture offering both global and local cuisines. The introduction of UberEATS in India, with Mumbai as the first city, is a major step in our global expansion and showcases our commitment to the region. The app brings the perfect pairing of amazing restaurant partners, innovative technology, and the efficient Uber delivery network at a tap of a button to people in India. The wide selection of meal choices delivered at Uber speed will open new economic opportunities for delivery partners, enable restaurants to connect with more consumers and make eating effortless, everywhere and for everyone.”
Similar to Swiggy, the Uber food delivery app will also have real-time tracking for users to track their orders. Mumbai is the first city to get this service and Uber will expand it in other cities in the coming few months.
