Uber launches UberEATS in India

Mobility solutions provider Uber has launched UberEATS in India, with Mumbai the first city to go live with the service.

UberEATS allows consumers to schedule orders, curate restaurants, personalise taste preferences and dietary restrictions and track the delivery on the app. Bhavik Rathod has been appointed to lead UberEATS in India and spearhead UberEATS expansion across the country.
 
UberEATS was started in 2014 as a small delivery pilot in Los Angeles and launched as a separate application in Toronto in December 2015. In the past 18 months, it has grown incredibly fast, and is now a stand-alone app available in 26 countries and in 78 cities around the globe, including India.
 
"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 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," UberEATS India head Bhavik Rathod said.
 
UberEATS has been launched in Mumbai in partnership with more than 200 restaurant partners, including local players like The Bohri Kitchen, Nom Nom, The Bombay Canteen, The Good Wife, Fresh Menu, Le 15, Coffee By Di Bella and global names like Krispy Kreme, Chillies, etc. consumers will be able to order 7 days a week, round the clock, as long as the restaurants are operational, through the app. The UberEATS app is separate to the Uber app people use to request a ride and has been built specifically to make food delivery as seamless as possible.
