UberEATS Debuts In India; Mumbai Becomes First Battleground For Food Wars With Zomato, Swiggy
“Mumbai is a city with an appetite,” stated Bhavik Rathod (formerly GM, South & West, Uber rides), the new Head of UberEATS, India which launched formally in Mumbai today. Uber’s on-demand food delivery app UberEATS may have arrived late to the Indian on-demand food party, but it has arrived in style.
The food on demand app, which has been kept separate from the ride-hailing app claims to have partnered with 200 restaurants to help bring food to consumers in a convenient and reliable manner anytime, anywhere. It allows consumers to schedule orders, smartly curate restaurants, personalise taste preferences and dietary restrictions, and track the delivery on the app. Bhavik claimed that, worldwide, UberEATS has a delivery time of 35 minutes, out of which 20 minutes are taken to prepare the food at the restaurant.
