Uber Eats: This week, Uber issued a statement revealing that it will stop offering restaurant delivery via the Uber Eats app. As of March 8, customers of the delivery platform will no longer be able to order meals in restaurants and cafeterias.
However, according to the information, Uber Eats will continue to operate only for orders in supermarkets, beverage distributors and specialty stores. The company even offers support to partner restaurants that are exclusive to the delivery platform.
“Our main goal for the future is to provide access to the largest and best selection of supermarkets, specialty stores, pet stores, florists, liquor stores and other items on the Uber Eats app. Everything so you have everything you need at your fingertips, with the best possible experience, from item selection to delivery.
