Uber to enter food biz with UberEats app

Uber has been testing the food-delivery service inside of its main app for the better part of the past 18 months, but it then launched as a standalone app available in Toronto, reported Wired.

Uber is preparing to launch UberEats, its standalone food delivery app, in 10 US cities, reported The Wall Street Journal's Doug Macmillan.

Los Angeles, Chicago, New York and Austin are among the cities Uber is bringing its food delivery service to, said a company spokesperson.

The first standalone app from the company since the launch of the general Uber app, UberEats will be live in the Apple App Store and the Google Play store by the end of March.

Uber has been testing the food-delivery service inside of its main app for the better part of the past 18 months, but it then launched as a standalone app available in Toronto, reported Wired.

Uber launched UberEats in Los Angeles in 2014 and has since expanded those services to New York City, Toronto, Austin, Chicago and Barcelona.

Uber partners with a couple restaurants each day to offer meals to its customers, which the company delivers via courier within just a few minutes.

Just like when you're waiting for your Uber to roll up, you can track your food's progress on your Smartphone as it travels to you. Drivers can choose whether they want to be an UberEats driver and they receive the ~$5 delivery fee from each UberEats order they deliver.
