It has been just a little over a month since UberEATS launched in SF, delivering lunch in 10 minutes or less across SoMa and the Financial District. We began by working with more than 20 restaurant partners and in that short time have doubled that footprint, and are now working with over 40 local restaurant partners, including San Francisco favorites like Ike’s Place and hidden gems like Can Can Cleanse.
We’re thrilled to add new restaurant partners—and items—week after week, including Pluck food truck and Namu Gaji. And this Friday, we’re featuring SF Chronicle Top 100 restaurant, Rich Table, who’ve created a custom sandwich just for UberEATS.
Just as we’ve grown the number of restaurant partners and menu items, we’ve expanded our soft launch to include more hungry San Franciscans. This week alone, nearly 20,000 new eaters who have requested access to UberEATS will be off the waitlist and on their way to a delicious local meal in 10 minutes or less. We are excited to connect more of San Francisco to local favorites through UberEATS, which offers the same cashless and fast experience Uber users love.

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–
This flu season, we’re delivering free flu-fighting care packages across the country. When you receive a pack, you’ll have the option to request a free flu shot from a registered nurse–for up to 5 people.
