As of today, the UberEATS app will start connecting Malaysians through the food that they love by giving them the option of enjoying culinary experiences and greater dining choices, wherever they are.
Following the success that it has in 27 other countries and 100 cities, the launch of UberEATS in Malaysia marks as another milestone for the company. “At Uber, we’re always looking for ways to bring Malaysians more choices at the touch of a button. This time, we are bringing consumers, restaurant-partners, and delivery-partners together in a digital marketplace celebrating Malaysia’s great cuisine and love of food. Using the power of Uber’s technology, we are going to help Malaysians enjoy the right food they want, right now – at the touch of a button,” explains Shri Chakravarthy Gopalakrishnan, General Manager of UberEATS (Malaysia and Singapore).
Kuala Lumpur foodies will no longer need to brave traffic, fight for parking, or line up in queues to enjoy the wide array of foods, beverages and desserts from over 200 restaurant partners available on the UberEATS app.
The app will begin serving around the KL neighbourhoods of central business districts of Bangsar and Damansara Heights from 9am to midnight, seven days a week. Customers have the option to make their payments using a credit or debit card, to enjoy a speedy delivery time of 35 minutes.
For delivery partners, it is providing new economic opportunities with more vehicle options, at more times of the day. “Uber’s technology aims to make things better for all, and UberEATS is no exception. With this rollout, we are also creating flexible earning opportunities for more Malaysians who delight in connecting people with their food,” Shri adds.
