Could Food Delivery Business UberEATSSM bring something
new to the table?
Online transportation company UberSM is doing more
than taxiing people to and fro. It has contracted with several big city restaurants
to provide food delivery through its UberEATSSM app.
Patrons simply download the app, type in their address and choose from their
favorite menu items at participating restaurants. The meal is prepared fresh, special
orders and all, and delivered straight to their door.
The UberEatsSM app promises easy, great food
available in select cities, UberEATS promises to make “getting great food
from hundreds of restaurants as easy as requesting a ride.” Several restaurants
are experiencing great success with their UberEATS partnership, citing it can
help expand or even pilot delivery. “Before UberEATS … we didn’t do delivery,” stated
Eric Greenspan, Los Angeles executive chef for
Maré Restaurants. And Steven Chong of
Chicago’s Halal Guys states, “With
just UberEATS, we’re probably doing about 100 deliveries a day.”
Besides expanding delivery service, UberEATS is helping
restaurants grow their customer base. “People will see you, that have never
heard about you, on the UberEATS platform,” said Marc
Canter of Canter’s Deli in Los Angeles. “ … They might see something on the
menu that grabs their eye and they try it, and if they like it, you now have a
customer for life.”
