Melbourne will be the first city in Australia, and third outside of the United States, to get access to the new UberEATS app, when it launches at 11am on 19 April.   

UberEATS is available on iOS and Android as a standalone app, with over 80 local restaurants signed up, including Supernormal, Gazi, Pidapip, Serotonin and Jimmy Grants.

The app will allow customers to select a delivery location, browse restaurants, check out with their card on file, and track the order to their door.

“Melbourne is the ultimate foodie city, and UberEATS enables us to help more people access the city’s great food, from top restaurants in their suburb and beyond. Our goal is to offer people what they want to eat, when they want to eat, in the quickest time possible,” said Simon Rossi, GM, UberEATS Australia.

For restaurants, the service provides a reliable delivery option, expanding their capacity and customer network.

“Supernormal is about experiencing the fast-paced and vibrant experience of the food culture in Tokyo. UberEATS will help us bring this experience to people’s homes, workplaces or even hotel rooms,” said Andrew McConnell, owner, Supernormal.

The new service will operate in Melbourne’s inner suburbs, from 11am to 10pm seven days a week, with free delivery for a limited time.

There has been a considerable rise in the number of delivery services over the past year, with UberEATS joining other businesses like Deliveroo and foodora.
