Uber expands food delivery business UberEats into South Africa

Uber Technologies started its UberEats food delivery service in South Africa last Thursday before it expands in the rest of the country and into the continent.

It has begun delivering meals in the northern suburbs of Johannesburg, South Africa’s largest city, before moving across the Gauteng province and to Cape Town in 2017, Uber Operations and Logistics Manager Dave Kitley told reporters.

Uber is making an aggressive global drive into takeaway meal deliveries, gearing up with a big staff recruitment campaign to enter at least 22 more countries. UberEats already operates in six countries and will launch in Amsterdam on Thursday.
