UberEATS launches Pop-Up Kitchen to support local restaurateurs
As UberEATS approaches its second anniversary in Toronto, one thing has become clear: there is no shortage of delicious food or passionate restaurateurs in this city. The cost of starting a restaurant can be hundreds of thousands of dollars and often requires months of construction, procurement, and planning. To help make it even easier for food makers to succeed in the restaurant business, we’re excited to announce a new initiative today: The UberEATS Pop-Up Kitchen. The Kitchen will allow food makers to start, test, and launch a delivery-only restaurant concept in less than a month with minimal financial commitment.
The UberEATS Pop-Up Kitchen will run from May 1-31, featuring up to four independent restaurant concepts. Chosen restaurant teams will be given access to a fully-equipped commissary kitchen for the month to run their own delivery restaurant. In addition to the space, these entrepreneurs will be provided with training and seminars around restaurant best practices from some of Toronto’s restaurant thought leaders. Topics will include: menu design, delivering outstanding customer service, managing food costs, and much more.

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.

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.
