The world’s most popular taxi-hailing service, Uber, recently launched on-demand food delivery service, UberEATS, is launching in Pretoria soon. The app allows users to order takeouts by simply making few tabs on your smartphone’s screen and the favorite dishes gets delivered to their doorstep by an enlisted restaurant. This service is already up and running in two cities in South Africa; Johannesburg, and Cape Town.
Pretoria is set to be the third city to get the service that will allow Pretorians to order takeouts from their favorite restaurants around the city from the comfort of their own homes or offices. The food will be delivered right to their doorsteps.
In Johannesburg and Cape Town, UberEATS has enlisted some of the best restaurants in those cities with more said to be enrolling for listing in the app. UberEATS says the same will be replicated in Pretoria when its services go live in that city.
Jambu Palaniappan, the regional GM for UberEATS in Europe, Middle East, and Africa said the company is impressed by the traction their services is getting in markets they have already launched. The app already has more than 100,000 downloads, and over 700 local restaurants have enlisted to get food takeout orders through the app and deliver them to the customers’ doorsteps.
“We are getting requests from both eaters and restaurants in all major cities, requesting launch dates, and our goal is to be in all major cities by the end of the year or early 2018,” said Palaniappan.
