Uber Eats launches in Riyadh

DUBAI: Uber Eats has added Riyadh in its entrée of more than 200 cities in the world where customers can order meals online or through the app and have them delivered at home or in their offices.
Starting today, residents can download the Uber Eats app or access ubereats.com and choose from over 100 restaurant locations in Riyadh – from local favorites such as Cafe Bateel, Manoosh and Hamburghini to everyday brands including McDonalds and PizzaHut. Ordered food would be prepared and delivered in an average of 30 to 40 minutes.
“We’re hugely excited to be launching in Riyadh today. 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 dinner at home, lunch at work or a snack when out with friends,” Mohamad Jardaneh, general manager of Uber Eats Saudi Arabia, said in a statement.
While Uber Eats is a global brand, the Uber Eats app in Saudi Arabia has been custom built to meet the needs of local residents and businesses, Jardaneh said, and Riyadh will become the first Uber Eats city in the world to launch with cash as a payment option.
“We know the importance of building technology to meet the everyday needs of locals. Whether that’s by opening up the benefits of our technology to more people with things like cash, or by investing in redesigning the app to offer customers the local experience they expect,” said Jardaneh.
