In the 9 short months since UberEATS arrived in Toronto, thousands of uberX partners have delivered over 100,000 items from over 100 restaurants across our city.
This demand has meant extra earnings and added choice for Toronto uberX driver-partners, who serve as the backbone of the UberEATS business. For small business owners in Toronto, UberEATS has helped expand their reach across the city, allowing them to grow their business and create more jobs.
Here’s what local Toronto restaurant owners are saying about UberEATS:
“UberEATS brings our city together and helps connect people with local businesses. It has been amazing for Sukothai because it’s brought a lot of business to us by connecting us with the people that we can’t connect with on our own. Within the first few weeks of partnering with UberEATS, our takeout business grew by over 50%.”
– Ian Kwan, General Manager, Sukhothai Food
“UberEATS and Uber Instant delivery has increased Pukka’s revenue by 20%. To keep up the demand, we had to hire two more employees. The domino effect from the increase in sales is endless.”
– Harsh Chawla and Derek Valleau, Co-Owners Pukka
“Making truly nourishing food available is our mission, UberEATS has delivered our lunches all across the GTA since May 2015. The Uber staff as well as the drivers really care, they’re an integral part of my business and have allowed me to grow and hire new people. They’ve worked closely with us to help lower our overhead as well as find solutions to minimize food waste. This is a big deal for a small business.”
– Lisa Labute, Owner The Goods
“Uber has become an important delivery partner in my business. They’ve helped us reach thousands of new customers quickly and conveniently.”
– Zane Caplansky, Owner Caplansky’s
“UberEATS has been a welcome addition to our business. It lends a level of efficiency to our delivery service that is unparalleled. As well as a level of professionalism that falls in line with our standard of customer service. Our clients have certainly adopted the UberEats service. Bottom line, UberEats is great business for all parties involved.”
– Shlomo Buchler, Owner Maker Pizza
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.
A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button. Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
