Nairobians Can Now Order Food Via Uber

By Soko Directory Team / May 30, 2018




Nairobi residents can now take orders from their favorite restaurants through the newly launched Uber Eats, by Uber Kenya.

The food delivery app is set to make getting great food as simple as requesting an Uber ride and deliveries will be made across the city.

Uber Eats has partnered with over 100 restaurants in Nairobi, from which orders can be made on the app for delivery by hundreds of couriers who have signed up. Payment for food is by card, cash or mobile money.

The service that is initially available in Kileleshwa, Westlands, Kilimani, and Lavington, is expected to be rolled out to the rest of the city, as well as other cities in Kenya and the region in the future. Nairobi becomes the fourth city in sub-Saharan Africa in which Uber Eats is available after Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town.

Speaking during the launch, Uber Eats Kenya General Manager, Amal Devani said that Uber’s new service is expected to revolutionize food delivery in Nairobi by making it easier and more convenient, the same way it innovatively transformed movement in the city by making it safe, reliable and affordable.

The Uber Eats app, which is separate from the Uber rides app, is available for download from either the App Store or Google Play. Orders can be made from the app between 10 am and 10 pm on any day of the week. There is no minimum baskets size, and each order attracts a delivery fee of only 150 shillings. On Uber Eats, eaters can enjoy personalized recommendations, filter for the right food, track their order in real time and schedule orders in order to plan ahead.

Uber first launched Uber Eats two years ago, during which the app has grown to become a global leader in food delivery, the app is present in 200 cities across the world and has partnered with over 8,000 restaurants globally.

Uber Eats becomes the second app launched by Uber, after the Uber rides app that was first introduced in Nairobi in 2015 and has since expanded to Mombasa and Thika, with more than 363,000 active riders and over 5,000 active driver-partners.
