Uber is gearing up to launch a standalone app for UberEATS, the company’s prepared food delivery service, in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Austin, San Francisco, Washington D.C., Houston, Seattle and Dallas, the Wall Street Journal reports. The app is expected to be available for both iOS and Android by the end of March. Uber also plans to expand its delivery hours in those cities.
Uber has been testing its expanded food delivery service via the standalone app in Toronto for a little over a month now. As it stands right now in the U.S., the UberEATS service is a feature within Uber’s standard app for requesting rides, and meals are only available during lunchtime. Soon, customers in those 10 cities will be able to order food from Uber’s partner restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
