A Recipe for Success
Keiry has a passion for baked goods. But unlike most of us, she doesn’t just eat them: she bakes them—elaborate and beautiful artisanal cakes.
After receiving a certificate from Le Cordon Bleu’s bakery and pastry program, Keiry started working full time at a bakery. But soon, she realized that she wanted to start a baking and design business of her own. With bakery shifts totalling 50 hours a week, Keiry had little time to invest in or launch her idea.
At first, Keiry was going to look into part-time restaurant work to fund her business and give her the time to get her venture started. But then a friend told Keiry about the flexibility of driving with Uber. It sounded like the perfect way to make the money to launch her bakery and design service; she could maintain a steady flow of income on her own time and schedule. As soon as she put in her two-weeks notice at the bakery, she started driving with Uber.
Since starting with Uber, Keiry has been able to use her earnings to build a dessert, decor, and design business: KVD Gallery. She caters a few events a week, and is looking to buy a food truck to sell some of her specialties, which include cupcakes, fresh fruit tarts, and macaroons. Initially, Keiry was driving up to 30 hours a week, but she is finding that as her earnings with Uber help fuel and grow her business, she is able to drive less and invest more time in KVD Gallery.
Whether you’re a freshman or a senior headed back to campus this fall, one thing is certain—you’ll need to eat. And there is nothing worse than being limited to questionable cafeteria food or taking a chance on expired leftovers in the back of the fridge. The best news? UberEATS is expanding to 30+ major college campuses by the end of the year, from Penn State to LSU to Boise State. Since we want you to focus on what you love about college and not worry about your next meal, we’re predicting the 5 times you’ll need to order UberEATS this semester.
We are excited to surpass the 100th city mark by welcoming two Brazilian cities, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, to the UberEATS family. From Atlanta to Warsaw, people have truly embraced this easy and reliable way to discover the food they love at the push of a button. Whether that’s an Indian inspired samosa, a good old-fashioned American burger or Vietnamese pho, people in 27 countries are using UberEATS to get a taste of the world’s flavors at the push of a button.
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
