Poutine Madness during Poutine Week

At Uber Montreal, we proudly wear the Montreal colours on our sleeves and that’s why we get crazy crazy (did we mention crazy?) when it’s that time of the year… (drumrolls) La Poutine Week!

What’s La Poutine WeekLaPoutineWeek_2015_Logo

La Poutine Week is a fun contest that invites restaurants in different cities to compete for the best poutine. Each participating restaurant must create a unique poutine especially for La Poutine Week.

As true Montrealers, we believe you can’t never have enough poutines so that’s why not only are we thrilled to join forces with them during La Poutine Week but we will shower you in Uber gifts; from free rides to the participating restaurants to UberPOUTINE-on-Demand powered by our exquisite partners FreshMint and uberX !

“Wait… Did I hear it right? I will be able to order poutine on my Uber app?”

You dreamt about it – we make your dream comes true #uberPOSSIBLE
