#UberEATS launches in Cape Town


Having launched in Johannesburg four months ago, UberEATS, an on-demand food delivery app powered by Uber, will start serving Cape Town.

UberEats will be celebrating their official launch this evening in a villa in Camps Bay, where guests will be wined and dined by HQ, one of UberEATS restaurant partners. 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.

UberEATS benefits

  • No queues
  • Customised orders – prefer your dressing on the side, no onions or coriander? No problem, orders are easily customised in app.
  • UberEATS aims to deliver – and quickly too. Dave Kitley, UberEATS South Africa, 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”, says 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 Meals can be requested for delivery in the Cape Town City Bowl, Camps Bay, Atlantic Seaboard, Woodstock and Observatory from 10am-10pm, seven days a week with a R20 delivery fee.
