Today a Wall Street Journal report detailed Uber’s plan to go live with its standalone food delivery app, UberEATS.
For just over a month now, Toronto has provided the proving ground for the service, but now UberEATS is set to go nationwide, well, in 10 cities anyway.
“This event was off the charts”
Gary Vaynerchuk was so impressed with TNW Conference 2016 he paused mid-talk to applaud us.
Currently, the UberEATS service is available within Uber’s primary app, but only for those requesting a ride, and a meal. It’s also only available during lunchtime.
In March the service is set to go live in Los Angeles, Dallas, Seattle, Chicago, New York, Austin, Washington D.C., Houston, San Francisco and Atlanta.
Residents in each of these cities will be able to order breakfast, lunch or dinner, sans ride, from any of Uber’s partner restaurants.
