Connecting people to the food they love, Uber Eats, the on-demand food delivery app, is all set to launch in Jaipur and Kochi later this month. Since its launch in May 2017, Uber Eats has expanded to one city every month and with the addition of Jaipur and Kochi, the service will be present across 10 cities in India.
Uber Eats will launch with over 500 restaurants across both the cities. It also promises to have a strong network of delivery executives that are currently being trained and onboarded as the service gears up to launch in both cities in the coming weeks.
Bhavik Rathod, Head of Uber Eats India, said, “It has truly been an exciting journey for Uber Eats in India. We’re all set to hit a milestone of 10 cities in 10 months. Jaipur and Kochi are known for their rich culinary delights and we are excited to make food ordering quick, easy and reliable here. We see immense potential in the adoption of our platform here.”
Uber Eats launched in India in May 2017 with Mumbai as the first city. Since then the service has expanded to Delhi, Gurgaon, Chandigarh, Chennai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Pune. It currently has a network of over 7000 restaurants across all the cities.
Globally, Uber Eats started in 2014 as a small delivery pilot in Los Angeles and launched as a separate application in Toronto in December 2015. Since then, it has grown incredibly fast, and is now a stand-alone app available in over 30 countries 200+ cities around the globe.
The Uber Eats app is separate to the Uber app that people use to request a ride. The app has been built specifically to make food delivery as seamless as possible, at the tap of a button.
