This week, Uber Eats announced that locals in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Midrand, Durban, Cape Town and Bloemfontein can now place an order at selected Chicken Licken outlets through the app, seven days a week.

Uber Eats South Africa General Manager, Ailyssa Pretorius said for years South Africans have been calling out for Chicken Licken to deliver to their doorsteps, and they are thrilled to be the first delivery app to answer this demand and support Chicken Licken with their new venture into the online food delivery space, providing them with the technology to adapt and thrive in the growing food delivery market.

Owner of Chicken Licken, Chantal Sombonos van Tonder also added that given the social outcry for Chicken Licken to offer a delivery service, they are taking a step in the right direction of addressing our customers craving and in so doing, partnering with Uber Eats.
