Uber to launch on-demand food delivery app UberEATS in India

Uber has got something delicious coming our way - a standalone app that makes getting great food as easy as pushing a button. It’s their new food delivery service, it’s called UberEATS and it’s coming to India very soon!


UberEATS started in 2014 as a small delivery pilot in Los Angeles. It has grown incredibly fast, and is now its own stand-alone app currently in 58 cities around the globe. India will be a major step in our regional expansion, following the launch in Bangkok, Singapore, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Taipei.

Through the pairing of restaurant partners, Uber's technology, and it's delivery network, UberEATs shall launch as an on-demand food delivery app powered by Uber.

Allen Penn, Asia Pacific’s Head of UberEATS, sees tremendous potential ahead, “I am incredibly excited about bringing UberEATS to India. This is a significant investment, it spans multiple cities and regions, and it has the potential to change the food industry - with the push of a button - in one of the most vibrant food cultures in the world.”

Connecting foodies to the food they love

UberEATS is powered by the same technology that makes its transport mobile app efficient and cost-effective and therefore getting food delivered will be as easy as requesting a ride.

More options for everyone

The app will give consumers, restaurant partners, and delivery partners more options across India. Restaurants can tap into the Uber delivery network to expand their businesses and reach a new network of potential customers. And delivery partners now have access to even more flexible earning.
