Since launching in Auckland last year, Uber Eats has six times as many local restaurants on the Uber Eats app – expanding from approximately 70 at launch to more than 400 Auckland eateries on the app today – as well as adding three new cities.

“We’re so pleased Kiwis have embraced the magic of online food delivery,” said Emma Foley, New Zealand country manager for Uber Eats. “Uber Eats is already popular among Kiwis as an extremely convenient and reliable way to get the food they love, delivered at Uber speed – and this is only set to grow.

“From a smoothie bowl for breakfast to a bagel for lunch, and tacos for dinner to a late-night cheeseburger, Uber Eats gives Kiwis access to fresh, quality meals at the push of a button delivered to their home, work or anywhere in between.”

Uber Eats offers Aucklanders 35 cuisines and more than 24,000 menu items available on the app – a number that is growing daily.
