Uber announced last week the expansion of its global food delivery app to Riyadh. People can now simply download the Uber Eats app or visit ubereats.com and order meals from a wide selection of the city’s restaurants, which are freshly prepared and delivered within 30-40 minutes.
Lately, Uber Eats turned into an on-demand food delivery app, where it partnered with more than 80,000 restaurants in 200 cities around the world.
In Riyadh it partnered with more than 100 restaurants, locals can order meals from their favorite restaurants for every taste, occasion and location seven days a week with Uber Eats with a simple tap on a button.
Mohamad Jardaneh, General Manager at Uber Eats KSA said: “We’re hugely excited to be launching in Riyadh. People in the city can now use Uber Eats to choose from hundreds of dishes to get the food they want, when they want it, delivered at Uber speed — whether that’s at dinner home, lunch at work or a snack when out with friends. With this launch, Riyadh joins the hundreds of other cities around the world who’ve embraced Uber Eats as a new way to get great food delivered fast. We’ve revolutionized the way people move, now we’re transforming the way people enjoy the food.”
The app will include a wide selection of food options, ranging from local restaurant to national brands like McDonald’s. In addition to that, the payment option is going to include cash, which makes Riyadh the first city to offer that. This is part of Uber’s continued efforts in bridging the gap between digital services and the cash economy.
