Kamloops part of Uber Eats expansion in B.C.
There's another competitor in town for hungry Kamloops residents to get food to their door. Uber Eats is now operating in the River City.
While dine-in is still limited in many restaurants, Uber Eats emphasizes the platform can offer a "new revenue stream for local restaurants."
Uber Eats is going to offer delivery from over 30 local restaurants, like Hoja Mongolian Grill and McCracken Station Pub.
"We have all suffered through this pandemic and Uber Eats provides all of us another avenue to reach customers and let them know we are still here and available," operations manager at Carlos O'Bryans Neighbourhood Pub Chris Pooli said in the release. "The extra revenue gained with Uber Eats will be very helpful in an industry that is really struggling."
Uber Eats is offered in over 120 cities across the country. Kamloops is one of six new communities announced in the expansion. Other B.C. cities on the list include Kelowna, Abbotsford and Chilliwack.
“These days, supporting your favourite restaurants isn’t always easy. We are excited to offer Uber Eats in 6 new markets in BC to help provide additional support for the struggling industry," Lola Kassim, general manager of Uber Eats Canada, said in a press release.
