“The introduction of UberEATS in India is a major step in our global expansion strategy and showcases our commitment to the market. The app brings together the perfect pairing of innovative technology and delivery network with our restaurant partners at the tap of a button,” said Bhavik Rathod, Head of UberEATS, India.Started in 2014 as a small delivery pilot in Los Angeles, UberEATS now serves about 78 cities around the world. For its Indian operations, Uber does not wish to bundle this new service in the ride-hailing app itself, but release a fresh app for the food delivery service.
food delivery app, UberEATS, has finally hit the Indian markets, sparking stiff competition to existing players like Swiggy and Zomato. With this move, the company aims to tap what it claims to be a $15 billion unorganized sector in India. Starting off with Mumbai, Uber has revealed plans to make the service available in six other cities by the end of the year. UberEATS has partnered with 200 restaurants in the city including The Bohri Kitchen, Nom Nom, The Bombay Canteen, The Good Wife, Fresh Menu, Le 15, Coffee By Di Bella, Krispy Kreme, Chillies, among others.
