Uber Eats makes its debut in Riyadh
Uber Eats will begin its service on 1 February 2018
Starting from today, Uber's food delivery app is set to make its debut in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Residents in Riyadh will now be able to download the Uber Eats app or visit the online site, where they will be able to order meals from a selection of the restaurants around the city.
Uber Eats has partnered with over 100 restaurants, including Cafe Bateel, Manoosh and Hamburghini to national brands such as McDonalds and PizzaHut.
Mohamad Jardaneh, general manager, Uber Eats KSA, said: "We're hugely excited to be launching in Riyadh today. People in the city can now use Uber Eats to choose from hundreds of dishes to get the food they want, when they want it, delivered at Uber speed - whether that's dinner at home, lunch at work or a snack when out with friends."
With Uber Eats launching in Riyadh, a city that relies on cash payments, the service will offer a cash payment option. The app will also be available in Arabic.
"Just like on our rides business, we know the importance of building technology to meet the everyday needs of locals. Whether that's by opening up the benefits of our technology to more people with things like cash, or by investing in redesigning the app to offer customers the local experience they expect," added Jardaneh.
