UberEats planned to enter India’s food delivery market in the second quarter of this year

By TechNadu Staff / April 17, 2017

UberEATS is set to launch in India in the second quarter of this year. The company already started gathering restaurant partners for its platform in six cities including Bangalore, Hyderabad, Pune, Mumbai, Chennai and Gurugram. The India operations for UberEATS will be on Manan Javeri who will report directly to the company’s Asia Pacific head Allen Penn.

UberEATS had started their planning in this regard with the third party delivery players earlier this year. The onboarding restaurant partners may charge between 25 to 30% commission per delivery as mentioned in a national news portal. The new launch of UberEATS will put it in competition with other popular food aggregators such as Zomato, Swiggy, Faasos, Yumist, and Foodpanda. Swiggy reportedly charges 15-20% commission of the order value to its restaurant partners, which are low compared to UberEATS.

According to a report in Economic Times, the management team for the UberEATS service will be different from the ridesharing app at national and city levels and UberEATS has been hiring city general managers, city-level restaurant operations managers along with brand and sales heads.

The service would first launch in one place and eventually expand to worldwide later this year. And there is no information about which city the UberEATS would be launched in first.
