Sure, you know Uber. But what about UberEATS? After an initial Garden State launch in Hoboken and Jersey City, this new-to-NJ food delivery app has expanded into much of Bergen, Essex and Passaic Counties, and will continue to roll out throughout the state in the coming months.
“Partnering with thousands of restaurants globally, UberEATS offers meals for every taste and occasion,” said Prab Singh, general manager for UberEATS New Jersey. “One day, we hope to serve eaters across the entire state.”
According to Singh, many of the New Jersey restaurants on UberEATS had not previously had a delivery option.
“We want to make sure that anyone who uses UberEATS has a wide variety of cuisines available to choose from, all within a reasonable delivery distance,” said Singh. “I think the value we bring is our expertise in technology and logistics, so the restaurants can focus on making delicious food and we can focus on the rest.”
To use UberEATS:
- Download the app or go to ubereats.com
- Add your address and choose from the menus in your area. (Users can only pay with card and a delivery fee–or “booking fee” as UberEATS calls it–will be charged, but customers are kept in the loop every step of the way.)
“Just like you can watch your driver approach your location in the original Uber app,” said Singh, “you can track your delivery every step of the way on UberEATS–from preparation at the restaurant and right to your door.”
It’s also simple for restaurant owners to get involved. As UberEATS looks to expand in New Jersey, new restaurants are always welcome. Interested owners just have to fill out a form online.
According to Singh, UberEATS has seen strong demand since its launch, and new restaurants are joining every week.
“UberEATS also provides a unique option for delivery partners,” said Singh. “If you’re someone who already drives with Uber, you can opt-in to UberEATS deliveries. Or, you can choose to do food delivery only. If you’re someone with a two-door vehicle, you can’t give rides on Uber, but you are eligible for UberEATS, so we’re able to reach a whole new set of people looking to earn flexible income.”
UberEATS initially launched with close to 100 partners in New Jersey. Since then, the list of restaurants has more than doubled. Here are just a few!
