UberEATS, Uber’s on-demand food delivery subsidiary has launched in Johannesburg, South Africa starting from Katy’s Palace in Sandton, promising to be a reliable way to order tasty meals easily and conveniently.

According to the firm, UberEATS will partner with only the best local restaurants to get customers the food they want, delivered faster.

“We’re so excited to finally be launching UberEATS in Johannesburg, one of the world’s trendiest food destinations. UberEATS makes life simpler and more satisfying for those who are short on time and with the hustle and bustle in Joburg we know it’s the best city to launch in,” says Alon Lits, General Manager, Uber Sub-Saharan Africa.

At launch, UberEATS already offers some of the the best food Jozi has to offer, including meals from the likes of Casalottis, Momo Baohaus, Krunch, Fishmonger and Paul’s Homemade Ice Cream.

The UberEATS app can be downloaded on the app store or through the Uber rides app, and meals can be requested for delivery in Northern Johannesburg from 07am to 10pm, seven days a week with a R20 delivery fee. UberEATS now offers those living in Jozi an alternative way of getting good food in good time, giving Joburgers great food at the touch of a button with no minimum order size.

UberEATS couriers will be made up of the best Uber driver-partners in Jozi and eaters can rate their courier as well as the restaurant, by giving them a “thumbs up”, or “thumbs down”, to ensure service stays excellent.

That’s right, UberEATS allows customers to customise orders. No onions with that? No worries, just make a note using the app. The app works simply, a user downloads the app or go to ubereats.com to find what you’re craving, and we’ll handle the rest.
