With no other international food delivery app available in Soweto (which is a shame, if you ask me), UberEats is giving local patrons access to affordable and reliable food delivery at the speed with which we’ve become accustomed.
In another first for Soweto, Uber Eats will offer local residents the chance to deliver food using a bicycle, with the peace of mind safety is a top priority thanks to offering Injury Protection. “Being able to do some flexible work without having to have a motorbike or car is an amazing opportunity for me,” says Simphiwe Ngobo of Soweto. “I can now work in my immediate area when it suits me, all I need is my bicycle.”
For those who don’t know, UberEats allows people to search for and discover local restaurants, order a meal at the touch of a button, and have it delivered reliably and quickly.
Since launching the app three and a half years ago, the business has leveraged technology and logistics expertise to serve 500+ cities globally, all while keeping average delivery time under 30 minutes. In South Africa, the app currently operates in over nine cities across South Africa (Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban, Cape Town, Stellenbosch, Paarl, Pietermaritzburg, Bloemfontein, Port Elizabeth and Soweto).
