Uber Starts Food Delivery Service, May Expand to Bay Area

Uber has turned its business model to the food delivery world.

The rideshare company announced expansion of a service called UberEATS to Chicago and New York on Tuesday. Customers can order meals from a daily changing menu of restaurant entrees and have them delivered in the same way that they would summon a ride.

The service was previously tested out in Barcelona and Los Angeles; it was known as UberFRESH in the latter city. It is not currently available in the Bay Area, but an Uber spokesperson did not rule it out for the short term.

"We haven’t announced specific plans, but we are always looking for new opportunities to help connect people with delicious meals on demand and look forward to expanding this service to more cities in the near future," Trina Smith from Uber Corporate Communications told NBC Bay Area.
