Is Uber About To Launch Food Delivery Service in Ireland?
Social transport giant Uber is reportedly planning to launch its new food delivery service in Ireland.
The Irish Independent reports that Uber has posted a job ad for its latest service, UberEATS, in Dublin, as the company continues its push into the food delivery market.
Last month, Uber began laying the groundwork for a nationwide rollout of its UberEats service in the UK, according to several job adverts placed online.
A move into the Dublin market would see Uber take on companies already operating in the food-delivery market across the country, including Deliveroo and Just Eat.
Uber's plans for UberEATS include a roll-out in 16 cities in 12 European countries ranging from Moscow to Madrid to Manchester, 11 new cities in nine Asian countries - including Hong Kong, Jakarta and Tokyo - plus two of South Africa's big cities, Dubai and Mexico City. UberEats has already launched in 36 cities in six countries, 27 of which are in the United States.
