Uber Is Getting Into The Food Delivery Service

Uber is one of the favorite taxi apps among Millennials and now we have yet another reason to love this company. Uber is entering the food delivery service. UberFresh launched in December in Los Angeles, and on February 18, UberEats launched in Barcelona.

If you are unaware of Uber’s current delivery services, UberFresh and UberEats are two different names for something that’s more or less the same service. Both offer food delivery that will arrive to your door in 10 minutes or less — a vast improvement over most delivery services, many of which can often take up to an hour to arrive. In the Uber app, you can go to the UberEats or UberFresh menu and select dishes for either lunch or dinner that change weekly. Uber works with Plateselector in order to determine what dishes will be offered on their virtual menus. One of the cool characteristics of the service is that it appears to have foodie appeal, with recent offerings such as barbecue pulled pork mac and cheese with a chocolate chip and potato chip cookie, croissant French toast with bacon and a bacon and tater-tot breakfast burrito. food delivery  is the perfect way to treat yourself on a big occasion or just after a long day at work.

The Guardian reports that Uber represents itself not as a taxi service, as it’s commonly perceived, but as a logistics company. “Rather than compare themselves to local taxi companies, they think of their competitors as the US Postal Service, FedEx or DHL,” Sam Hamadeh, founder of analyst PrivCo told The Guardian. Food delivery is just one leg of its logistics operations.

According to The Guardian, Uber is “working hard to expand to other neighborhoods soon” but won’t comment on which cities it will launch in next.

Will this help improve some people’s negative impression of the controversial app? Guess we will have to wait and see.
