Joburgers, UberEATS is here! UberEATS was officially launched at Katy’s Palace in Sandton and from Thursday 29 September those in Jozi hungry for a new, reliable way to order tasty meals can request their favourite foods using the UberEATS app.
UberEATS is an on-demand food delivery app powered by Uber, and it’s just as easy and convenient to use as the rides app people know and love. UberEATS partners with only the best local restaurants to get customers the food they want, delivered faster. At launch, UberEATS already offers some of the the best food Jozi has to offer, including meals from the likes of Casalottis, Momo Baohaus, Krunch, Fishmonger and Paul’s Homemade Ice Cream.
“We’re so excited to finally be launching UberEATS in Johannesburg, one of the world’s trendiest food destinations. UberEATS makes life simpler and more satisfying for those who are short on time and with the hustle and bustle in Joburg we know it’s the best city to launch in,” says Alon Lits, General Manager, Uber Sub-Saharan Africa.
The UberEATS app can be downloaded on the app store or through the Uber rides app, and meals can be requested for delivery in Northern Johannesburg from 07am to 10pm, seven days a week with a R20 delivery fee. UberEATS now offers those living in Jozi an alternative way of getting good food in good time, giving Joburgers great food at the touch of a button with no minimum order size.
Lits notes some of the advantages of UberEATS, “What’s great about UberEATS, other than the fact that we’re aiming to get food to “eaters” in the shortest amount of time, is that good restaurants can now expand their business reach, while our delivery partners have access to new flexible economic opportunities. And, for the first time restaurants will be able to use Uber’s data to get feedback from their customers.”
UberEATS couriers will be made up of the best Uber driver-partners in Jozi and eaters can rate their courier as well as the restaurant, by giving them a “thumbs up”, or “thumbs down”, to ensure service stays excellent.
