TORONTO, Aug. 23, 2018 /CNW Telbec/ - Today, Uber Eats is officially launching in 30 new cities and towns across Canada. Using the app Canadians can get the food they love from their favourite local restaurants and national brands delivered.
"Launching in these 30 new cities supports our efforts to bring food delivery to more Canadians through the Uber Eats platform," said Dan Park, General Manager, Uber Eats Canada. "Canadians want to be able to enjoy food in a way that fits their lifestyle. As the world's fastest growing meal delivery service, we are expanding in order to meet those demands with the convenience of reliable delivery."
Today's announcement marks the largest single-day Uber Eats launch nationally, and is part of Uber Eats' ongoing commitment to be in 100 Canadian cities and towns by the end of 2018. This latest expansion includes towns and cities from coast-to-coast, including Halifax, Winnipeg, Regina, Saskatoon and surrounding cities in Vancouver.
