Uber Is Launching A Full Food Delivery Service In 10 U.S. Cities

Some of you who live in New York or L.A. might be familiar with Uber‘s food delivery service, UberEATS. However, the ride-hailing company is expanding this service in 10 U.S. cities starting in March. Joining New York and Los Angeles are Austin, San Francisco, Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, Washington D.C. and Seattle. Yay!

Currently, UberEATS only offers lunchtime delivery in select cities. How it works is one or two dishes from a popular local restaurant are available to order during the work week. Once a customer makes their selection it is delivered by a Uber driver in under 10 minutes.

Well, the expansion will work slightly differently. There will be much more food options, with full menus available for on-demand delivery from 10 AM to 10 PM daily.  When a customer places an order and it is ready for pickup, Uber will locate a driver closest to the restaurant and let them decide if they want to deliver. If multiple customers order from the same place, the driver will be given the option to deliver to all of them.

Not going to lie, it kind of sounds like it might take a while for your food to arrive. With the waiting for a driver to accept the pickup and also potentially delivering to other customers before you. It’s definitely going to be interesting to see how UberEATS works compared to my trusty ol’ friend, Seamless!
