UberEats has just hit the Indian market last year, but it looks like they’re already making an impact (amidst stiff competition from Swiggy and Zomato). According to a statement released by Uber, India is the fastest growing market for UberEats globally. Uber is currently in 28 cities after expanding their services to five more cities – Tiruchirappalli, Surat, Nashik, Ludhiana and Mysore.
“India continues to be the fastest growing market for Uber Eats in the Asia Pacific region and globally. As urbanisation picks up in the country, we look for opportunities to take our service to newer cities and expand our network, especially in tier II cities, which we believe, offer tremendous potential for the food tech industry,” Head of Uber Eats India Bhavik Rathod said in a statement.
While specific numbers weren’t discussed, Uber did mention that the number of orders had “more than quadrupled” in the last three months. In an interesting twist, Vijayawada and Madurai were two of the first cities where Uber Eats was launched before the rides service. Globally, UberEats is growing 200 per cent per year and has a USD 6 billion run rate.
