UberEATS, an on-demand food delivery service run by Uber, the world’s popular ride hailing service, has expanded further in Cape Town, South Africa following unbelievable patronage by Capetonians.
The service delivers the best of a city’s dishes right when customers want them using Uber rides. The app houses an increasing number of local restaurants customers love and the ones they’ve always wanted to try.
Requesting meals via UberEATS is as simple as requesting an Uber – customers tap the app, place an order, and their food gets delivered right at their doorstep!
Launched in Cape Town last month, the service has been embraced by the city’s residents so much so that it has now been expanded into Rondebosch, Newlands, Claremont, Bishopscourt, Mowbray, all in the southern suburbs.
“Thousands of Capetonians have ordered food through UberEATS in our launch and from today we’re delighted to be expanding to Rondebosch, Newlands, Claremont, Bishopscourt, Mowbray. Your local favourites are now at your fingertips. Experience the magic of food delivery by Uber. From burgers to sushi or an afternoon treat, you can now find your craving on the UberEATS app,” Uber stated in a release.
Residents in these suburbs can now, just like their Cape Town counterparts, order meals from their favourite restaurants at the tap of a button. To use the service, they should do the following:
- Download the app or head to ubereats.com and sign up or sign in with your Uber login details,
- Add your home, work, or any other address you’d like to have your meals delivered to,
- Search for your favourite local spot or try something new,
- Pay with your card already on file and enjoy free delivery for a limited time,
- Then, sit back, relax and watch as your order is prepared, picked up, and delivered right to your door.
Cape Town was the second city in South Africa (and Africa) to have the service – Johannesburg was the first. In the coming months, UberEATS is expected to launch in Gauteng, and hopefully in prominent markets on the continent
