enters the Memphis market today.
According to general manager of UberEATS Southeast Peter Hsu, UberEATS already has 100 restaurants on board, including Brother Juniper's, Corky's, Staks, One & Only BBQ, Blue City, Wild Beet Salad Co., Local and Agave Maria, and South of Beale. They will also deliver from chains as well, such as Firehouse Subs and Krispy Kreme.
The process is pretty easy. You download the UberEATS app, input your address, browse restaurants or search by cuisine, and then place your order. You can then track your order.
Hsu says the whole thing can take as little as 30 minutes.
He also says that they will be using existing Uber driving as well as recruiting more who just want to deliver food.
According to Hsu, UberEATS operates in about 50 cities globally, and while he notes there is no certain criteria for UberEATS to choose a certain city in which to operate, he does say, "Memphis has a really strong scene. We expect to see customer demand."
