UberEats has arrived in Cape Town
Foodies take note, Capetonians can now request some of the best food Cape Town has to offer, delivered to their door at a press of a button. After the launch of UberEATS in Johannesburg just four months ago, UberEATS Cape Town is now live.
Capetonians will be able to sample HQ’s delicious food items on the app which includes the likes of Sirloin Cubes with Café de paris butter, Wild Mushroom Risotto balls, Salmon Pancakes Roulade and Open Lamb Sliders with brie and avo.
Eaters in Cape Town City Bowl, Camps Bay, the Atlantic Seaboard, Woodstock and Observatory can now look forward to getting their favourite meals at the tap of a button. From My Sugar to Societi Bistro, Uber has partnered with a selection of the best and most popular restaurants and eateries in these areas.
Just as easy to use as the Uber rides app people know and love, UberEATS is an on-demand food delivery app powered by Uber. UberEATS partners with only the best local restaurants to get customers the food they want, delivered faster. Some of Uber’s restaurant partners at launch include; HQ, Nü, Societi Bistro, My Sugar, The Creamery, Gibson’s Gourmet Burgers & Ribs, Engruna Eatery, IYO and many more.
“We received such a fantastic response to the launch of UberEATS in Johannesburg we couldn’t wait to launch in food-conscious Cape Town. Our app shows immense interest in this area and we are so looking forward to offering Capetonians meals from their favourite eateries, without the time and hassle of going to get it themselves”, says Dave Kitley, UberEATS South Africa.
The benefits of UberEATS
Customised orders – prefer your dressing on the side, no onions or coriander? No problem, orders are easily customised in app.
Besides the consumer not having to move a muscle, UberEATS aims to deliver – and quickly too. Kitley notes that ‘eaters’ shouldn’t have to wait longer than 45 minutes from order to delivery.
Restaurants get a new market and driver-partners get to expand their businesses.
Restaurants can, for the first time, receive feedback from customers.
“Uber thrives on feedback”, adds Kitley. “We want the UberEATS courier service to be of five star quality”. That’s why users of the UberEATS app will be able to rate the service of both the restaurant and their food courier by using a ‘thumbs up’ or ‘thumbs down’ rating system after the food has arrived”.
The UberEATS app can be downloaded on the app store or through the Uber rides app, as well as via the web at ubereats.com. Meals can be requested for delivery in the Cape Town City Bowl, Camps Bay, Atlantic Seaboard, Woodstock and Observatory from 10h00 to 22h00, seven days a week with an R20 delivery fee. UberEATS now offers those living in these areas an alternative way of getting good food in good time, with no minimum order size.
