UberEATs is soon launching in India, as per an official blog post by Uber. Started in 2014 as a small delivery pilot in Los Angeles, UberEATs is an on-demand food delivery app powered by Uber.

As a stand-alone app now, UberEATs is available in 58 cities around the globe currently, and India will be a major step in the company’s regional expansion, following the launch in Bangkok, Singapore, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Taipei.

I am incredibly excited about bringing UberEATS to India. This is a significant investment, it spans multiple cities and regions, and it has the potential to change the food industry – with the push of a button – in one of the most vibrant food cultures in the world.
– Allen Penn, Head – Asia Pacific, UberEATS

According to the company, UberEATS is powered by the same technology that makes its transport mobile app efficient and cost-effective, and hence getting food delivered to you is as easy as requesting a ride.

However, apart from serving the consumers, UberEATs will open up options for restaurants who will be able to tap into the Uber delivery network to expand their businesses and reach a new network of potential customers as well as delivery partners who will have access to even more flexible earning.

Uber has not shared any timeline for the launch, however, expectedly the company will launch the service in phase before extending it in all intended cities. Also, there’s no information if UberEATs will launch in all the cities that Uber services in India as of now.
