Ride-booking app launches food delivery in Grand Rapids
A new food delivery service is available for residents of the Grand Rapids area.
The ride-booking app Uber said today it launched its UberEATS app in the market, which offers food delivery seven days a week from participating restaurants.
The app launched locally in partnership with more than 40 local eateries, including Brick and Porter, Fat Boy Burgers, Curry Kitchen and Wealthy Bakery.
“We’re thrilled to launch today in Grand Rapids to connect local residents and visitors with new, tasty options, add new earning opportunities for driver-partners and help local restaurant owners expand the reach of their business,” said Peter Forsberg, UberEATS general manager for Michigan.
The service will be available to residents in Grand Rapids, Grandville, Walker, East Grand Rapids and Kentwood.
“Since Uber launched three years ago in Grand Rapids, there is no denying Uber has changed the way people get around town,” said Bill Sepsakos, founder, Brick and Porter. “When we heard UberEATS would be coming to Grand Rapids, we knew they were the ideal partner to bring our customers’ favorite items to our guests outside of our store.”
The UberEATS app is free to download for iOS and Android mobile devices.
Users are able to track their orders and customize their drop offs on the same account they use to schedule Uber rides.
To celebrate the launch, first-time users can enter the promo code “MICHIGANEATS” to receive their first two deliveries free. The offer is good through Dec. 21.
UberEATS is available in more than 200 countries around the world.
