Uber is expanding its food delivery service to more cities. The car-hailing app company announced that it will begin delivering meals to residents of New York and Chicago after piloting the service, called UberEats, in LA and Barcelona.
In New York on Monday, Uber was offering two lunchtime meals, a sandwich and a spring salad, to people in midtown Manhattan. The app promises to deliver the meal curbside within 10 minutes or less. The offerings will change daily, Uber said in blog post.
The lunch-delivery service, which places Uber in competition with the food ordering app Seamless, is just the latest expansion for a company whose ambitions extend far beyond replacing taxis. Uber has also been testing a courier service in New York and an on-demand delivery service in Washington, D.C.
